Brand new for the 2020 season is the stunning Karnic SL800 Motor Yachts – made right here in Cyprus by Karnic Powerboats in Limassol. Known as ‘The Distinctive Choice’ Karnic have a well-deserved reputation for building superior quality boats that adapt well to comfort and performance.
‘Outlander’ & ‘Sassenach’
EFFICIENT AND HIGH-PERFORMANCE
The Karnic SL800 has streamlined design lines, aggressive styling and many innovative features as standard.
Innovative stern seating easily converts to U-shape dinette, or back-to-back seats or into a sunbed. See the video for a boat test and to see how easily re-configurable is this boat. She has a fully accessible sundeck that can be adapted as to a lounger including dedicated speakers, drink holders and optional bimini. With a maxium number of 11 passengers plus your captain, the Karnic SL800 is surprisingly spacious and comfortable for larger groups.
NOMINATED FOR “EUROPEAN POWERBOAT OF THE YEAR 2020”
She has an offshore hull design with high sides (freeboards) ensuring nobody gets wet when you put the power on. And, the SL800 is capable of a maximum speed of around 45 knots and cruises perfectly at 30 knots. The real walnut interior has a spacious lounge area in the bow that converts to a double berth and there is a dedicated cabin in the stern. There is also a wet bar and a head with shower and toilet. Thoughtfully recessed and subtle LED lighting makes these spaces feel especially voluminous.
What a fabulous day! It has become a holiday tradition of ours to private charter a boat. We had two teens with us; one who loves snorkelling and one whose first opportunity today offered. Both have said it’s been the best bit of the holiday. Three of us had our own snorkel and mask but they were available onboard for those who had not.
Our Captain Dave was a pleasant, knowledgeable and interesting guy. He offered some tutoring and my son did some first mate duties whilst my husband took the helm for a time. Under sail, working with the elements was great. It was fabulous weather for testing out the boat too sometimes the wind getting up to 22 knots.
We had two extensive opportunities to snorkel in warm, calm, quiet, blue waters. Our lunch of chicken kebabs, Greek salad, hummus, tzatziki and bread was delivered by speed boat and was delicious.
A superb 6-hour trip. A highly recommended treat.
My husband and I had our honeymoon in Cyprus this year and had a truly unforgettable yacht charter with latchi charters in August. We chose the Jeanneau yacht as there was just two of us and it was amazing to try sailing for the very first time.
