What a Year!
Knysna Yacht Company has a legendary history of crafting the finest sailing catamarans in the world. The company had a very successful boat show in February in Miami exhibiting a Knysna 500 Standard Edition. The boatyard had received lovely compliments during the show, the proud new owners were assisting the company at the show and will continue to market the boat at the various shows in the USA.
Back at the boatyard in South-Africa...
Since the recent announcement of the launch of the fabulous Knysna 500SE (Special Edition) (owner’s version) in January 2014, the boatyard had since sold a total of 8 new slots. The 4th SE is scheduled to be launched in June 2015.
Sleek in performance, responsive to handle & fast to sail, the new Knysna 500 SE is an exciting design and offers the same exceptional construction and blue-waters sailing capabilities and lush interiors as her sister-ships. With an even more spacious cockpit and seating arrangement, extended coachroof and longer boom this new catamaran will be a serious challenger in the 50ft market and a spacious home afloat for world-class cruising.
The Knysna Yacht Company has launched an exciting custom catamaran for a couple from CT – this yacht is currently exploring the Indian Ocean. The owner – an architect – implemented inspiring ideas for his yacht!
This new layout offers 4 cabins and heads with first class accommodation for up to eight guests including a private Captain’s cabin on the port side with access from the cockpit.
The Captain’s cabin is as spacious and offers double bed-bunks with ample storage space and a spacious heads and shower, perfect for a couple appointed to sail the catamaran with the private owner and his family. The captain can access his cabin from the cockpit – and have his own private space and cabin “outside” the yacht. The large queen sized Mastercabin is located in the port side hull with amazing views from a large central window, the cabin boast beautiful woodwork and lush interiors, including a ladies-vanity, wide sliding drawers, spacious heads and showers. The steps will lead you up to the next platform where you will find the galley and the saloon area.
More space has been created and has enabled the provision of a dishwasher and extra drawer space. The saloon-settee will be on a raised platform to allow amazing panoramic views while sailing or on anchor. The Starboard hull offers 2x double cabins each with own shower and heads and large windows for viewing and dedicated space for top loader washing machine, lush interiors and ample locker space.
That's it from us...
