Sail catamaran for sale
1998 Manta 40 (40ft)

Rare Opportunity to Own a West Coast Manta Catamaran! s/v Shanti is the perfect turnkey 1998 pre-owned catamaran. US built Manta Catamarans were made for, and are proven blue water cruisers, with a devoted and loyal following of knowledgeable past and current owners, even having their own very active responsive owners’ forum. These yachts are known for their sound construction and excellent performance. They are designed for easy single handing with a self tacking jib and all lines leading to the cockpit helm station. Shanti has a large, comfortable cockpit (can seat 12+) with both bamboo cockpit and cocktail tables. A wonderful sling seat mounted on the arch support gives helm-height views from the stern and catches the cooling breezes. The entire area is covered by a rigid bimini top. This catamaran boasts 6’3” headroom in the cabin as well as in the hulls! All of this while maintaining plenty of open floor space for dancing with your sweetheart or doing yoga.
