The Knysna 480- Stunning, serious cruising catamaran.
Designed by the Angelo Lavranos, who balances aesthetic design, engineering, and with offshore experience. Knysna may not be the best -known name in the field of vanilla catamarans but it doesn't have to be. The quality and attention to detail speaks for itself. In addition, this yacht has only had one owner her entire life.
MEKA is a nicely performing blue water tough catamaran for voyaging that offers beautiful interior woodwork and finish and sturdy build.
She will easily pull speeds in the low teens and sail 20% faster than most production cats. She has an elevated bridge deck, 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 and attention to detail is evident throughout.
Same hull as the Knysna 500 in every respect but her sterns – her interior volume is identical.
