We are a boat manufacturing company situated in a small town called Swellendam in the Western Cape of South Africa. We’re a family owned and managed business which was started in the early 1980’s by Marius Heyneman. His passion for racing inflatable boats in difficult and technical water conditions all over Southern Africa, eventually led to his hobby becoming a successful boat designing and manufacturing business in 1985.
Today, the name Falcon is synonymous with well-designed, top quality and durable boats. Over the years, Marius’ family also joined the business to ensure the knowledge and experience will be carried on and improved on into the future.
Our family ethics, driven by innovation and perseverance, we thrive on designing and refining every detail. Our hulls are designed purposefully, and tested thoroughly to make sure each and every component outlasts the competitors.
With our ever expanding range of boats, all models can be customised for many different applications, whether it is for recreation, diving, commercial, patrol or just a well thought out fishing boat.
We only use the highest quality European materials available, as well as the latest technology in manufacturing techniques. Composite support structures borrowed from the aircraft industry and a fully thermo-welded tube construction with high UV resistance and durability, ensures a strong and durable product which can be used for both leisure and commercial industries.
Falcon fully complies with the South African Maritime Safety Authority regulations and also complies and exceeds strict International Standards ISO6185-3.
National Sea Rescue Institute, South African Police, Eskom, Marine & Coastal Management, Department of Water Affairs, Cape Nature, Red Crescent Society (Arabian red cross), a variety of oil companies, super-yacht owners, foreign Governments, clubs and organisations and many more.
With the launch of our 2020 models, we’ve also given our brand a refreshed look and feel. This new logo and branding can be seen throughout this website. However, there are quite a few of our 2019 and pre-loved Falcons still on the market for years to come, so keep an eye out for our old logo as well!
