The Featherbed Company

The Featherbed Company affords visitors to the famous Garden Route an unforgettable experience on the Knysna Lagoon.


The Lagoon, more accurately defined as an estuary, has five fresh water rivers flowing in from the surrounding Outeniqua Mountains that meet with the surge of sea water from the Indian Ocean through the mighty Knysna Heads, the grand sandstone cliffs which tower above the entrance to the Knysna Lagoon.


Featherbed’s boating fleet includes a 45ft Catamaran sailing boat, a one-ofa-kind Paddle Cruiser, the famous John Benn and a Rivercat ferry. All (with exception of the Rivercat) offer extensive restaurant and bar facilities to cater for luncheons and dinner cruises, perfect for private charters, weddings, conferences, and other functions such as product launches.

Of note is that three of the locations are on Featherbed’s tourist boats whilst the other four are land based. All locations are connected by wireless. EasiPos provides the point of sale controls and is fully integrated with Ankerdata’s procurement & inventory control solution. This innovative all-in-one solution has afforded Featherbed’s with an iron clad control over all aspects of their operation.
