KNYSNA 480 - “Wild Vanilla ”

Priced to sell now at $589 000!

Wild Vanilla is a rare find and an absolute "must see", for anyone seeking to do some serious cruising and/or liveaboard!

One owner, never chartered, very low hours and meticulously maintained by fastidious owners, means that Wild Vanilla is truly a turn-key vessel, ready to take her new owners to distant shores and beyond. Due to the use of advanced materials in her construction, the Knysna is a better performer than her competitors, easily making 200nm days, in comfort and style.

She is the 4 cabin version, with extra spacious en-suite heads, each with basin, electric toilet and large separate shower stall. Build and finish are top quality, whilst headroom throughout is no less than 6’6”. Twin 16 000BTU aircon units are sure to keep you cool! Her large covered cockpit with drop down sides and dual tables, large 4 burner hob with wok burner and full size oven, make her the entertainers dream.

Wild Vanilla was fitted out with long distance cruising in mind, where self sufficiency is critical. As a result, she has a large amount of storage space, 940W of solar with dual MPPT regulators, a 7.5kw genset, 1260amp/hr AGM battery bank, 180L/hr watermaker, 600L of diesel storage, almost 500L of combined fridge & freezer capacity in 3 refrigerators + 2 freezers, and much more. This is one serious ocean voyager!

Her owner’s cruising plans have changed and she has been priced to sell. At $589 000, she represents outstanding value for money, rarely found in a vessel of this class and pedigree.
