I named my Knysna 500SE ‘Thandiwe’, which is a Xhosa girls name meaning ‘loved one’. Although the extended cockpit design had worked out well, I still wanted to create more individuality, so I set about adding a number ‘extras’ to further enhance her looks and performance. One of the first things you will notice is that Thandiwe has had Stazo cork decking installed in the cockpit and deck topside, adding a richness over the standard white GRP finish.
Following are a number of additional posts that highlight some of the key features that were added over and above the standard specification, which you can see in the 500SE brochure HERE. There’s also a 500SE promotional video HERE.
