The Knysna sailing catamarans have the performance, comfort and style that discerning owners demand and charterers enjoy. The 480 designed by Angelo Lavranos is built at Knysna estuary in South Africa – an area where the Indian Ocean meets the Atlantic at the famed Knysna Heads – a challenging passage under sail and one of the best places in the world for sea trials.
This four cabin/ four head boat will be the first one available for charter in the BVI, and with her distinctive lines and sleek good looks, is going to prove to be a great hit.
Additionally, Meka will have air conditioning and a generator on board for that touch of luxury. Be the first to charter this Knysna 48 in Tortola and experience all the BVI has to offer from on board this great new catamaran.
