Knysna Multihulls are made in Knysna, South Africa and at least one of our members is having one built (Knysna 48) now so here is the forum for discussions on Knysna boats and we welcome anyone with any questions.

Here is their web site Click Here (http://www.knysnayachtco.com/news.php)

The Knysna 440's seem to have very low clearance, see picture below.

I can't find the clearance specified for the 480, anyone know what it is at:
Lightship?
DWL?

The 10.5 ton displacement mentioned is that lightship?

What is the load carrying capacity?

I guess Flamingo has one on order?? Any pics forthcoming?

the 480 is 48'11" overall. The waterline length is 46.5' The beam is 26'7" and the bridge deck clearance is 36". Lightship weight is 10377 kg. Half load is 12017 kg. Full load is 13017 kg.

I will post pictures soon.

I believe the 480 is close to being launched, would love to see some pictures, of the interior as well.

Hi, does anyone know the bridgedeck clearance of the Knysna 440? It's a piece of information I can't find anywhere!
The St Francis 44 Mark II, on whose hulls the Knysna is built has 600mm.
Thanks.

Hello xsander and welcome. It sounds from what you say that you probably already have as good information as you are going to get! :D

Yes, probably! I've written to Knysna - no response. I looked on the Lavranos website and no info there either. They also post the light displacement of the Knysna incorrectly at 7,000kg - 2,400 less than it really is! Someone must know though...

Sorry I can't help with the Knysna, but just to confirm the information you do have--

The Sailor's Multihull Guide, Second Ed. lists clearance for the St. Francis 44 MkII at 2 feet, and all the hull specs on the Knysna web site match as well.

As Mike said, that may be as good as you are going to get.
