Owning a Knysna Yacht Company Catamaran


If you want to leave the land and all its stresses behind to explore oceans, there are many options. The most fulfilling is to own your own dream yacht. Even better than that is having a hand in creating it to your exacting needs and wants. Our team of expert yacht builders will craft your dream into reality.

Build Duration

Our multihull yachts take, on average, 12 months to set sail. That includes all production phases from start to finish; including planning, approvals, building, customization and adding the final

trims and finishes.

Part of the Process

As the yacht owner, you are included in every phase of your yacht’s construction. Throughout the entire process, we will guide you with our insights, yacht building expertise and knowledge.

An Experience Like No Other

Our boatyard is in a world-renowned destination where there is so much to see and do. We invite our clients to visit during the yacht building phase and will customize an itinerary for your trip to beautiful Knysna – a town often referred to as “the emerald of the Garden Route”.

No Detail Unattended

Communication with you, the yacht owner, is of the utmost importance to us. In addition to progress reports, we keep you up to date on details such as your deposit, payment and balance, as well as any other questions you may have during the yacht building process.

Yacht Construction Financing

Not only are our voyage-ready catamarans semi-customizable, but we’re also able to help prospective yacht owners tailor the financial aspects.

Most banks and financial institutions are only prepared to finance a completed vessel, perhaps even requiring that the boat be imported before facilitating any type of financing.

We offer clients a “construction finance” option whereby Knysna Yacht Company finances 90% of the entire construction of a yacht.

This will allow the vessel to be completed and presented to the owner in a completed state so that the owner can then arrange yacht finance with a financial institution of his/her choice.

Please contact us at for further details regarding this financing option.

Yacht Insurance

As a prospective yacht owner, from the very first moment you encounter one of our yachts, you’ll agree, it’s worth safeguarding. When it comes to yacht ownership, we can advise you on several bespoke insurance options with approved marine insurers, to suit your specific profile and requirements.
