About this Boat

Motivated Seller!  Price just reduced!  Please bring offers!

Maxi-Nique ll is a 2005 Knysna 440 blue water voyaging catamaran. Her owners have sailed her to the Caribbean from South Africa and lived on her comfortably for the past several years. She is ideal for a couple or family to live on and sail safely almost anywhere in the world. Her construction is robust and she has a full compliment of safety equipment, SSB Radio, 1,000 Watts of solar panels, etc. Please see the full specs listing here to get a better sense of her full inventory. 

These boats are faster sailors than the French production cats, and much more hand crafted, a bit more blue water in orientation, although they are comfortable for charter. 

If you have less than $300,000 to spend and are looking for a turn-key cruising catamaran, Maxi-Nique ll should be on your short list for sure. To learn more about her, just give us a call. Showings can be organized in Puerto Rico with just a few days of advance notice as her owners continue to live on her.
