Knysna Yacht Co.

World leaders in boutique yacht building.

Kevin Fouché’s vision of building catamarans that combined high performance long-range cruising with fully customised interior layouts and decor that were designed around the unique needs of their owners was realised in 2002 when he founded the Knysna Yacht Company.

As a highly skilled shopfitter, he worked with some of the industry’s top interior designers and architects giving him the expertise and design skills required to create the Knysna Yacht Company’s renowned interiors.

With the legendary expertise of naval architect, Angelo Lavranos, Kevin helped design the mould of the deck to achieve his vision ensuring the necessary space required to create his luxurious ‘lifestyle’ interiors without compromising on performance or safety.

The Knysna Yacht Company is based in Knysna, famed for the dangerous entrance to the Lagoon known as the Knysna Heads, and being situated on the East Coast of South Africa on the Indian Ocean; their yachts are tried and tested in some of the world’s most challenging sea conditions.

Knysna Yacht Company is a member of MIASA and is fully accredited by SABBEX with their yachts having to undergo rigorous quality, safety and production tests, and their financials are strictly audited. Their yachts are CE-certified.

The Knysna Yacht Company is the world’s only exclusive ‘boutique’ yacht building company building a limited number of yachts per year for select clients, and its focus is not on volume, but on innovation, technology, creativity, craftsmanship, and safety, ensuring they remain at the forefront of international yacht building companies in their class.
