The Knysna Yacht Company builds the Knysna 440, an Angelo Lavranos-designed, fast cruising catamaran. The company is based in Knysna, Southern Cape, South Africa, a picturesque town with a proud tradition of quality boat-building dating back to the 1830s.
It's a new, patented personal catamaran with a hull for each of your legs.
These two narrow hulls are connected by a long saddle. Each of your feet reaches down to the bottom of its respective hull - far below waterline.
This unique design establishes a new standard for stability, comfort, ease of use and speed. You are free to choose anytime between four basic paddling positions: Riding, Sitting, Kneeling and Standing.
Only a WETA can pack up small and can be sailed with one, two or three sails blazing by one, two or three people! No wonder it was Boat of the Year in 2010! Composite foam sandwich hulls with Carbon spars and beams make this little trimaran as robust as it is versatile. A trimarans legendary forgiving nature means that anyone can jump on the Weta and immediately feel confident.
