Lifestyle & Use

The St Francis 46 has been designed as a live aboard for blue water cruising that can be sailed shorthanded on long passages in comfort and safety. It is available in 3 cabin owners version or 4 cabin version. The large sliding door and window between the galley/saloon and cockpit area allows them to be combined into a large, covered entertainment area.

Unique Features

The ergonomics of the St Francis have been refined over the years. No sharp corners to the furniture, hand holds and railings have been strategically placed, giving you easy safe passage, whether below or on deck. The extra-large windows in the saloon and galley give excellent all-round vision.

Design & Build

This ultra-modern fast cruising catamaran is the result of design collaboration between Anton Du Toit of Du Toit Yacht Design and Angelo Lavranos. With a greater loading capacity, it is possible to support better on-board systems such as air conditioning, improved refrigeration, state of the art navigation and communications systems.

Prices & Process

The price for the St Francis 46 starts at US$1050000.00. A full range of popular extra items are available allowing you to build a boat to your exacting requirements. The experienced team will work with you to put together the bespoke package that is just right for you. Pricing of the vessel will be amended to reflect the final build specification agreed to between the boatyard & purchaser.

In the world of the cruising catamaran, the St Francis marine boat yard should not require an introduction as they are the quintessential example of this class of vessel. Their motto is simply, Grace, Space and Pace.
With a highly skilled and dedicated team, together with two of South Africa’s most highly respected Naval architectural firms, precious little is being left to chance.
The all-new St Francis 46 pedigree is reflected in the same outstanding performance characteristics as the St Francis 50 sister ship which was awarded ‘boat of the year’. The yard's standard of excellence for both the 46 & 50ft models has been maintained throughout.
The 46 has been designed as a live aboard for blue water cruising that can be sailed shorthanded on long passages in comfort and safety.

In the event that you are in the market for a premium blue water cruising cat I would like to suggest that you reach out to me for further insight and a personal introduction to the yard.

The particulars detailed herein are intended to give a fair description of the vessel but their accuracy cannot be guaranteed, these particulars are not a part of any contract or offer and are supplied on the understanding that all negotiations shall be through Brokerages, who are acting as brokers for the manufacturer.
