Overview

One owner, never chartered, low hours, Ocean Sapphire is designed for bluewater cruising and capable of taking her new owners to distant shores and beyond. Due to the use of advanced materials in her construction, the Knysna is a better performer, easily making 200nm days, in comfort and style. She is the much sought after 3 cabin owner's version, with extra spacious en-suite heads, each with basin, Tecma electric toilet and large separate shower stalls. Build and finish are top quality. Headroom throughout is no less than 6'6". The Master cabin with Knysna's trademark slanted windows aft for fantastic views from the berth also features a sofa, an office space midships, a vanity with large mirror and a large head and separate shower forward in the port hull.

Boat Highlights

One owner, never chartered, low hours, Ocean Sapphire is designed for bluewater cruising and capable of taking her new owners to distant shores and beyond. Due to the use of advanced materials in her construction, the Knysna is a better performer, easily making 200nm days, in comfort and style.
She is the much sought after 3 cabin owner's version, with extra spacious en-suite heads, each with basin, Tecma electric toilet and large separate shower stalls. Build and finish are top quality. Headroom throughout is no less than 6'6". 
The Master cabin with Knysna's trademark slanted windows aft for fantastic views from the berth also features a sofa, an office space midships, a vanity with large mirror and a large head and separate shower forward in the port hull. Twin 16 000BTU aircon units are sure to keep you cool! 
Her large well protected hard covered cockpit with drop down leaf dual tables, raised helm on the bulkhead with ease of access and commanding views makes maneuvers a breeze. Inside an open C-shaped settee on the forward bulkhead with nav to starboard, aft facing U-shaped galley with raised island counter, double sink, 4 burner hob, full size oven and microwave, make her the entertainers dream.
Ocean Sapphire was fitted out with long distance cruising in mind but is also ICW friendly. She offers wide side decks and robust construction and storage space, a full suite of electronics, 6kw genset, large battery bank, 100L/hr watermaker, 600L of diesel storage, almost 500L of combined fridge & freezer capacity in 2 refrigerators + 3 freezers, and much more. This is one serious ocean voyager!
Her owner's cruising plans have changed and is a rare find in a vessel of this class and pedigree.
