48' Knysna 480


Description: Sognare was designed by world famous naval architect, Angelo Lavranos, and semi-custom built by Knysna Yachts, of South Africa.

Sognare is in excellent condition and has been constantly upgraded to be lived on in absolute comfort. Bring your clothing and food. We have lived aboard for 3 1/2 years. Anything that needed repairs was immediately done..first class. Everything is ready to go. Life Has changed. Moving to power boat.

Sognare has spent the last three winters in the Exumas. Her shallow draft allowed us to anchor in the most beautiful, secluded anchorages. The addition of a new davit system(12/15)allowed the installation of new solar panels(12/15), a wind generator(upgraded 12/16), and with additional batteries, months of living on the hook are very easy.A Rocna anchor and 230 feet of chain, helps to make for relaxed sleep.
