About this Boat

ORIGINAL OWNER BOAT and Hull #125 of the prestigious Manta Catamaran line

The Manta 42 was not designed to jam as many people as possible onboard for a one week charter. These high quality and American built cats were designed for long-term cruising and living aboard.  Just ask any owner of a Manta catamaran.  They are some of the best salespeople and stay loyal to these modern day cruising cats.

“Beesmej” is the ultimate blue water cruising catamaran, well equipped and sleeps five comfortably in three state rooms. The port hull features the Owner’s Suite with head and separate shower cubicle and companionway pantry storage and bookcases. The starboard hull features an aft VIP stateroom and forward guest stateroom. A Guest head is shared and a built-in bookcase lines the companionway. The vessel boasts a gourmet galley and an inviting and relaxing salon for lounging and entertaining.
