St Francis catamarans

St Francis 46

Want to hear from the builders of the St Francis boats? See our exclusive interview with them now.

Special Offers: Hull #01 available at discounted price for launch in September 2023.

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$1200000.00. 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. OFFER - 5% DISCOUNT ON HULL #1.
