Knysna 480

Knysna 480

SOGNARE is an owner’s version, bluewater cruiser, complete with four luxury double cabins and 3 en-suite heads each with seperate walk in-shower. Each Knysna catamaran is semi-custom and built to order.

The owners spent two months upgrading the boat last summer. Upgrades included a new NORTHERN LIGHTS 10KVA generator (35 hours), additional air conditioning capacity in the salon, upgraded shore power capacity and new rub rail. They have spent the winter and fall cruising Florida and the Bahamas. Their exacting standards and careful choice of equipment will be a new owner's opportunity. This yacht is in spectacular condition and has a full array of top-shelf options: upgraded YANMAR 55 HP engines (600 hours); NORTHERN LIGHTS generator (35 hours); CRUISAIR AC (16K BTU in cabins + 16K BTU in salon); SPECTRA watermaker; 2 ISOTHERM fridges and freezer; corian counter tops; SPLENDIDE washer dryer; QUANTUM gennaker and 2 spinnakers, bowsprit; electric winches; GARMIN electronics package including radar and chartplotter, SIMRAD autopilot, ICOM SSB; 2 ROCNA anchors; TECMA toilets; INFANTA Rib dinghy and YAMAHA 15 HP outboard.

The Knysna 480 is a new design from Lavranos that features many design innovations and improvements over earlier models in the range: elevated bridgedeck; hard-top bimini cleanly integrated into a streamlined coach-house; protected bulkhead helm station that offers excellent visibility of sail plan and from which helmsman has access to all lines and winches; wide open deck space and aft walkways ensure safe boat handling and movement; spacious cockpit area for entertaining and modern interior styling.

The quality of build is evident throughout; the attention to detail and the premium options are custom-yacht grade. This yacht is CE/EU certified. Headroom is a minimum 7 feet throughout. Please call Alexis to arrange a viewing.
