In any event, if anyone can get me into a 2 year old 40' cruising catamaran for less than $200K, please email me immediately.

Incidently, Admiral Catamarans has bought the Fortuna moulds. The Island Spirits will continue to be produced.
I am in that line too!!!!!

Rick, Manta 42 ft Catamaran

Thanks for your response, this is why these forums are so great, I learn something new every day, I have been looking at a 2006 42 ft Manta, does anyone have anything to say about them??? I like that they are built here in the USA, other than that I don't know much about them.

Manta's are quality boats. There are a few Manta owners who post here. Why don't you start a thread asking for their opinions?
