Knysna 480 catamaran : A comfortable boat…
Discovering ‘Sailfish’, our Knysna 480 catamaran, we climbed aboard a very classically designed catamaran: a large cockpit with a nice table, where 8 people can easily be accommodated. Two steps allow access to the raised steering position. The helm position is natural and pleasant, but as is often the case on these big catamarans, the hydraulic steering gives very little feel, and we quickly left the steering to the automatic pilot...
Inside the saloon of the Knysna 480 catamaran, to starboard, there is a nice lounge with a table and very comfortable seating. Opposite, there is the chart table and the electrical control panel. Practical and appreciated, not to mention the high quality of the connections.
To port is a very well-designed galley, with a work top which would have many cooks dreaming.
Going down into the hulls of the Knysna 480 catamaran (similar on our test version), we find an aft cabin with a superb king-size bed, a bathroom in the gangway, a forward cabin (queen-size bed) with the bed athwartships, a nice bathroom and finally a crew berth in the forepeak, which can also be turned into either a workshop or a stowage area.
