While it is true that Manta has closed it doors (like many boat builders in this economy), they built GREAT boats, and there are several out there for sale
. There were NONE when we were looking in 2006, so had to buy a new one
, which has been fantastic. But we've seen some great-condition Mantas that are 10years old. Lot depends on the owners, maintenance
, usage and what goodies are on board and in good condition. (I.E 5 year old electronics
and batteries might need to be upgraded.) If you'd like a complete (I think) list, checkout the website - MantaCatamaransForSale.com. Also has a nice photo
album of Manta features.
