Eyethu Baywatch - - FRONT PAGE - Gugu Myeni

AF­TER a fouryear long pro­ject of build­ing their dream yacht, Blackie and Karin Swart fi­nally launched In­jab­ulo (mean­ing hap­pi­ness) at the Zu­l­u­land Yacht Club (ZYC) last Wed­nes­day.

The 15m cata­ma­ran was brought in on a road trans­porter from Buhrmans­drift near Mahikeng to Richards Bay last month, and the launch at­tracted a crowd at the ZYC as many waited in an­tic­i­pa­tion for it to fi­nally hit the wa­ter.

The yacht was built by North West ad­vo­cate Swart, with the help of his wife Karin.

Watch­ing a life­long dream ful­filled as the yacht slid into the wa­ter for the first time, the cou­ple plan to head for the Caribbean in the cata­ma­ran, which has six cab­ins and which sleeps 12 peo­ple.
