Welcome to our Company


The Current Marine yacht building division has established itself as the go-to manufacturer for light-weight performance multi-hulls using the latest and most current building methods to ensure strong, stiff and light-weight yachts. Our sailing multi-hulls has catered to a purist and knowledgeable sailor seeking multi-hulls which sail incredibly efficiently especially in light winds and behave favourably in larger sea states.

Current Marine was established in 2002 giving the builders an excellent grounding in constantly developing the process in keeping the build structure light and stiff which allows our designs to sail greater than wind speed.

After many years of developing this recipe, which we have developed in conjunction with the Schionning design team, we have introduced the new CM251 and CM245 sailing catamarans which we feel has an excellent blend of high performance and cruising capacity, all of which could only be achieved by being diligent in keeping control of the build weight of the structures.

The CM336 performance cruising trimaran is another example which showcases our ability to build light weight multihulls.

After Current Marine was established as the yard to build performance multihulls we set out to seek a carbon spar supplier in South Africa to build carbon rotating wing masts, this we did not easily find so we took the challenge to develop our own, hence we started Current Spars, primarily developed for our in-house projects and later to supply private and yacht building yards abroad and in South Africa. We steadily developed this division using our company’s strong skills in resin infusion which has constantly been developed as our base in the division of Current Composites, which manufactures composite infused cored panels primarily in the construction under license to Schionning designs pre-manufactured catamarans in flat pack components.

Current Composites has an in house developed custom CNC router bed capable of cutting 12mx2, 75m which we use to manufacture the standard composite cored panels sizes of 12mx2.4m. See the link to the typical cutting and nesting sheets.

Current Spars build carbon fixed and rotating wing masts along with composites wing booms.

Current Marine has built, supplied and advised on the construction of over 40 multihulls over the years supplied many pre-cut kits in South Africa and abroad.
