Equipment List

Formerly the Manta 38, The Manta 40 represents a nice blend of performance, aesthetics, accommodation, and value in a cruising catamaran. Hull, deck, and structural bulkheads are composite construction, utilizing isophthalic and vinylester resins, multiaxial and unidirectional E-glass, polypropylene honeycomb core, and vacuum bagging. The hull is solid fiberglass below the waterline. Both hull and deck are constructed in one piece and bonded together. The accommodation plan has been developed from customer feedback, offering a spacious galley up, one complete hull dedicated to the owner's stateroom and head, large separate shower stalls, larger refrigerator and freezer compartments, and queen sized berths.
