Established in 1997, Ocean Marine Boating is the only dedicated boat shop on the South Coast of Kwazulu Natal. It is a successful family business owned by the Tapson’s. Our friendly and loyal staff Norman and Veronica have been here from the start.
The owner Colin Tapson is passionate about boats, motors and fishing. He obtained his skippers licence at the young age of 16. His father and mother Neil and Sue Tapson, both excelled at deep sea angling by both earning their protea colours. The apples didn’t fall too far from the tree, Colin and his siblings Carol, Royden and Diane subsequently earned their provincial colours.
Colin is intellectual, passionate and proud of his work. He is a person who engages in critical thinking, research and reflection. He makes reasoned judgements that are logical and well-thought out. He likes a challenge and never gives up until the problem is solved.
We offer quality products at the lowest prices. All boat parts can be ordered on request.
