The Manta Mk-II is a US built bluewater vessel with an excellent reputation established as a serious Offshore liveaboard catamaran that can easily be singlehanded.

S/VR Is a Florida based 2005 Manta 42 Mk-II “owners” version layout. This vessel is outfitted  for long-range cruising. The port hull features the owner’s suite with master stateroom aft and a private head with a separate shower forward. Midship has multiple built-in bookshelves and storage cabinets that line the port hull companionway. The starboard hull features an aft VIP guest stateroom and a forward guest stateroom. A guest head is shared and built-in bookcases line the companionway. The vessel includes a fully equipped galley and salon for lounging and entertaining.

At the helm one can handle every sail control with the electric winch. The main halyard, jib halyard, main sheet, jib sheet, and two single reef lines lead to the helm through deck organizer to sheet stoppers. There is also a custom spinnaker sock and turtle bag.

The hull, deck, bulkheads and sub-sole are vacuumed bagged using a varying lamination schedule of biaxial, triaxial and unidirectional cloth, cored with Core Cell ( hull & deck) and Nida Core honeycomb coring (bulkheads, sub-sole) and laminated with vinylester and isophthalic resins. Wetted surfaces below the waterline are solid GRP construction with vinylester resin. Above the waterline in the hull and deck isophthalic resin is used.

In the areas of thru-hulls, chainplates and deck hardware the construction is solid GRP. All deck hardware is thru-bolted with aluminum backing plates laminated into the respective location. Manta further uses Kevlar in the bow and keel areas. Thru-hull fittings and sea cocks are non-corrosive Marelon. The hull-to-deck bond is done with 3M 5200 marine adhesive/sealant and reinforced with 360-degree unidirectional laminates on the inside of the hull/deck bond for additional structural integrity and stiffness, creating a monocoque structure. The hull/deck seam is then finished with a heavy-duty vinyl rub rail.

All mechanical/electrical and plumbing systems are designed in accordance with ABYC standards using the best materials and equipment available to the marine industry, with the goal of reducing maintenance to a minimum.

Engine rooms are easily accessed via the aft berths with a hydraulic-assisted bunk lift and opening doors. The transmission comes with a pump-out tube, allowing oil to be changed/replaced without the need to haul it out.

 Recent upgrades include all new Raymarine Nav instruments including wireless radar in 2019, wireless autopilot and windlass remotes and Axiom 12 chart plotter in 2019, Cruise Air air conditioning systems (salon unit new in 2021), aft unit new in 2018, 18 gph Spectra Newport water maker and New Isinglass in 2018.
