Performance Cruiser #3

DESNA is the 3rd boat of the Knierim 49′ series. Her construction is simular to the first ones. The main difference is again the interior.

Layout and materials are as individual as on every Knierim built boat. DESNA’s warm coloured interior gives her a cosy atmosphere, yet she is a great racer, too. The yacht has been continuously optimized and adapted to the respective changes in the ORC formula. DESNA continues to sail successfully in the North and Baltic Seas.

The yacht was designed by the renowned design office Judel/Vrolijk & co. in Bremerhaven and combines performance, elegance and comfort in a high-quality overall package. A total of three yachts of this type were launched at our shipyard.
