The Manta catamarans were never intended for the charter trades. They were designed for Mom and Pop to cross Oceans with occasional guests. These boats are very sought after for their performance and ability to carry the "stuff" needed for distance cruising. Carina is a truly special Manta.

"Carina" is one of the finest examples of the Manta 42 there is. She was planned and cherished by her first owners and held in the same reverence by her second. Nothing has been missed.

The custom modifications to this boat are to be found in no other.

Ask a Manta owner how they feel about their boat and they will regale you in its comfort, quality and sailing performance. These boats have become a cult of sorts. They were never designed or intended for the charter trades. From the very first drawings they were planned for crossing oceans with limited crew, excellent storage, speed, sea keeping ability and all the creature comforts one can imagine. 

"Carina" is a turn key boat and deserves your consideration.

Special Features: Eight Solar panels, Generator, Two Reverse Cycle Heat and Air Conditioning Systems, Washer/Dryer, Custom Storage compartments port and starboard, New Strataglass Forward Enclosure Windshields, Full Eisenglass Enclosure, Fuel Polishing System, Roller Furling Spinnaker, AB Alumina dinghy with a 2016 Yamaha 15hp Engine, Satellite TV System, Ocean Aire Shades on all Hatches and Port Lights, 300GPD Water Maker, Invertor.

Don't miss out on seeing this beautiful boat.
