MANUTARA is one of the largest, most comfortable cruising yachts in her class. Combined with her upgraded condition, and excellent charter record and a five stateroom layout she will make someone a fine investment and wonderful sailing yacht.


The PILOTHOUSE has a large covered cockpit with roll­up weather screens that provides a protected outdoor dining and entertainment area with a large teak dining table for 10 and two comfortable horseshoe shaped seating areas with panoramic 360 degree views.

The AFT DECK has a large, flat open deck with two Summit teak lounge chairs and additional seating. On the FOREDECK is the custom 4 ­person, stainless steel heated Jacuzzi.

The MAIN SALON takes advantage of the full 26’ beam, thus providing a spacious and luxurious entertaining and lounging area. Custom cabinetry and upholstery create an air of sophistication and comfort rarely found on sailing yachts. There is a large circular settee and corner desk in this area. Starboard is the DINING AREA with a gleaming cherry inlaid dining table that expands to comfortably seat 10 around a custom leather banquette. Port side aft is an office area.

The fully­ equipped restaurant style GALLEY is forward of the main salon. Opposite the galley is the CREW DINETTE followed by the CREW QUARTERS with five separate cabins.

The aft MASTER SUITE runs the full width of the yacht and features custom mahogany paneling and cabinetry and has a queen centerline bed. The en­suite head is finished with green marble and teak and features a double sink and extra large shower. This stateroom also has individual air conditioning controls, television, DVD, stereo.

Each of the four GUEST STATEROOMS have twin beds that can be converted into king beds. Each cabin includes an en­suite head and shower with marble countertop, individual air conditioning controls, television, VCR, DVD and stereo.
