Additional Details

Accommodations / Overview

"ViZu" is a 1999 extended Manta 40/42, Hull #45. In 2005, the sterns were professionally lengthened to follow the hull form. The steps of the stern extension were designed to be more practical for ease of getting on and off the boat. The steps were also modified to all be the same height.

"ViZu" is an owner’s version model and is a very well appointed luxury sailing catamaran that was purposefully built for private owners, and not the charter market. During the past 6 years, her owners sailed for 6 months of each year. For the remaining 6 months, "ViZu" was placed in storage with a full protective sunshade covering the area from the mast, aft to the stern of the boat. During the storage period, all sails, sail covers, Eisenglass enclosures and cockpit cushions were removed and placed in indoor storage.

This light and bright interior offers the Manta standards of excellence. The Port Hull features the Owners’ Suite with Master Stateroom and private Head with separate shower. Pantry storage and multiple built-in book shelves line the Port Hull companionway. The Starboard Hull features an aft VIP Guest Stateroom and a forward Guest Stateroom.
