Looking for opinions on this boat. The Knysna web site suggests there have been some improvements made since the boat was made as the St. Francis 44. The photos seem to be much the same.
I always liked the look of the St. Francis but was concerned about low bridgedeck. I know that St. Francis increased clearance in later production but I don't know if Knysna made any further increase.
The layouts seem nice but it is hard to determine what the berth access is like. We are not wild about berths that require a big climb in and out.
We recently sold our Leopard
38 and are now shopping
for our next boat. We do not plan to sail around the world - just want to escape Canada's cold winters and hang out in the carribean.
