Launch of SV-Bahati (Knysna 500SE)

We successfully launched yet another custom-built yacht, a Knysna 500SE – SV-Bahati. The Knysna 500SE is a 50ft sailing catamaran which can be customised to each owners preference, choosing a 3-cabin or 4-cabin layout, additional technical features and selecting the final finishing interior materials.

Yacht Launch SV-Bahati

The owner of SV-Bahati appointed a local project manager to oversee the build and we’re proud to say it was a smooth process. Our team worked hard to deliver on time and to the owners’ satisfaction. Both boat owner, project manager and the Knysna Yacht Company team are proud to showcase this yacht at the Miami International Boat Show.

SV-Bahati sailed from Knysna to Cape Town for commissioning following which she departed Cape Town in December and is currently making her way to Miami.  After being on show at the Miami Boat Show she will be reunited with her new owners where they set sail for the Bahamas.

We are proud to be showcasing SV-Bahati at the Miami Boat Show – if you would like a private sail or viewing please email us at
