PRICE TO SLE FAST AS OWNERS ARE PURCHASING A LARGER BOAT FOR THEIR EXPEDITIONS-IMMACULATE PRESENTATION -READY TO CRUISE ANYWHERE NOW, OR TO ENJOY IN FIJI FOR AN UNLIMITED PERIOD OF TIME (TAX PAID) - HUGE VOLUME BUT DESIGNED TO BE HANDLED EASILY BY TWO PEOPLE

The Knysna 440 catamaran is designed by renowned naval architect Angelo Lavranos. It is fast with modern prismatic hulls, power generating wide beam and the highest quality finishes, fittings and workmanship. This catamaran has a stable configuration, excellent handling ability and Airex foam core vacuum bag construction. SV Lauren Grace was built in a modern facility using state of the art materials and workmanship. All Knysna yachts are designed to cross oceans in safety and comfort.

Built in 2004 SV 'REBEL' was previousoy named 'Lauren Grace'. Her previous owners, a couple from the US, purchased her new from the Knysna Factory in South Africa and sailed her around the world for many years before sellign her in February this year to a group of Polish explorers who were organising expedtions to remote parts of the world. The owner's program now growing quickly, they have set their heart on a 75' catamran to rebuild and fit-out to grow their business and have offered 'Rebel' for sale at a very reaosnable price. As they did not think they would need a bigger boat so quickly when purchasing Rebel this year, they lavished a lot of expenses and attention to her, making her even more beautiful and well equipped than she previously was.

'Rebel' is a proven example of the high standards represented by this world class builder and was chosen because of her sea-keeping qualites by her pervious and current owners. Purchased already in near perfect condition in February 2019 by her current owner she was further upgraded with a new watermaker, new electronics, SSB and radios, instruments, anchors, and was fully repainted inside for a very bright and fresh interior. Her full pre-purchase survey is still current and is available in request. Her engines were both serviced again 2 hours ago and like the rest of the boat, are absolutely immaculate.

-'SY REBEL' WALK-THROUGH:

'Rebel' is an immaculately presented cruising catamaran designed and built to the highest standards in South Africa, close to the Leopard Catamaran's factory and with similar criteria in mind with regards to ensuring maximum safety and seaworthiness in the challenging Southern Ocean.

Unlike many production yachts, the Knysna is not mass produced, but built by a boutique-style company which puts high value in one-on-one customer satisfaction and meets the most stringent criteria. This philosophy is obvious when stepping on board 'Rebel', which was clearly built with strength, durability and attention to detail in mind. The Knysna Yacht Company is based in Knysna, (the K is silent), famed for the dangerous entrance to the Lagoon known as the Knysna Heads, and being situated on the East Coast of South Africa on the Indian Ocean; our yachts are tried and tested in some of the world's most challenging sea conditions.

Light, fast and set-up as a spacious live-aboard, she is a lovely and bright home at rest, and a sensational cruising catamaran at play. Built quite low, with high bows and extended transoms, her design maximizes adherence to the water and minimizes wind tunnelling, while remaining comfortable in large seas. Her turn of speed and higher pointing to the wind is surprisingly good for a cruising catamaran without daggerboards.

Launched via her elegant transoms, 'Rebel's first feature is her teak cross-running transom, which is fitted with snap shackles and where the dinghy can easily be launched and retrieved. There is a solid outboard bracket designed to accommodate a large outboard in upright position when on passage.

Stepping into the cockpit, the area is safely separated from the transoms, and built in a way to maximize seating area without impeding on the traffic to and from the deck and steering. A large table becomes unobtrusive when folded but once opened can accommodate 6-8 people comfortably. The cockpit is covered by a solid Bimini, which is built of GRP Airex foam core, which despite being very light is strong enough for any adult to walk on. Several steps built into the forefront of the coach roof allows easy access to the Bimini top, which makes reaching the sail bag and lazy jacks if needed simple and safe. The cockpit is enclosable by custom-made clears that can be rolled up or removed when not needed. The Bimini is also designed to catch rain water with a cleverly designed catchment system.

Up a step is the steering station, which offers outstanding visibility on all corners of the boat, which is often inadequate on catamarans. All instruments, controls and sheets are within easy access, and the angle of the radar display which is installed inside can be seen from this station.

The saloon is accessed through a large sliding glass door. It is large, bright and intelligently laid-out, with a triangular shape saloon to one side and a large navigation table on the other. The panoramic view over the water from the large windows is outstanding. The galley is down two steps to provide a huge working area while remaining on an open split-level to the saloon, so that guests and cook can communicate. The galley being designed this way also means that almost one entire third of the port hull is devoted to food preparation and storage, which is often lacking on boats of all size. Everything is spotless and well organised.

Moving forward is the master stateroom, with a queen size berth, lockers, vanity, mirror, and plenty of natural light through the large overhead hatches. There is a huge amount of storage available beneath the bed, the upholstered bench / step at the foot of the bed, and in various lockers and wardrobes, All the cabins are bright and airy, freshly painted and very welcoming.

The master ensuite is huge, and includes a bathtub with overhead shower, wash basin and cupboard. The head area is well lit by an overhead hatch and the escape hatch on the inner side of the hull.

Aft is another large double cabin fitted with a queen size berth and many storage lockers. This cabin, as the similar aft cabin in the other hull, is mostly used for storage at present but is equipped with a comfortable double mattress.

Mirroring the port side of the boat, the starboard side is similarly configured, with the large bathroom forward (without the bathtub), another toilet, and two queen size cabins with ample storage. The passageway is an ideal area to store books and manuals, as well as tools, parts and equipment. It would also make an excellent home office. As with the rest of the boat, everything is tidily organised and immaculately clean. Access to the engines, which are freee of corrosion and spotless, as is the engine bay, is below the aft cabin berths. The area is wide enough for an adult to easily access all parts of the engine for servicing.

Moving back on deck, which is easily accessed and safe to manoeuvre in all weather with good non-skid and higher than normal lifelines, the impression of space is breathtaking. One can easily forget that the boat is only 44' long, the amount of usable space is simply amazing.

The sharp, elegant bows are reinforced for structural stiffness, especially desirable in the punishing Southern Ocean, and stiffness is over-engineered for the Southern Ocean with a massive cross-deck section and longitudinal double beam spreading from mid-ships to the bow and separating the two trampolines. This is a feature, which many catamaran owners which design does not include this additional reinforcement, often chose to have custom-made. The added benefit is the extra support to the anchor chain all the way to the double roller, and to accommodate a stronger platform for the forestay and articulated bowsprit which is used for screecher sail (asymmetrical spinnaker), which is kept lifted when not in use.

'Rebel' is freshly painted, and her hull, topside and decks are in really beautiful condition. She has been the home of her successive owners since launched, and has been lavished at all time the respect and attention one can expect from cruising owners, who devote themselves to full time caring for their beloved boat, unlike boats normally sitting in marinas between long period of disuse. She is ready to be passed on to her new family in outstanding condition, and with the benefits of her current owners' gentle counsel should you wish for a little guidance to smooth the transition to life aboard, whether you would prefer to remain exploring the 300 paradise islands of Fiji (the boat is imported and can remain here indefinitely), or if you would like to get ready to continue sailing around the world.

For someone thinking of investing in a lifestyle with an additional source of income in Fiji, 'Lauren Grace' would also be a very good option to operate as a charter vessel, as she offers many characteristics suitable for the charter industry.
