Grace Anne | 2001 Manta 42

Coronado, CA, US


Grace Anne has had the same owners since she was ordered new in 2001 and has been well taken care of. The Manta 42 is well respected among cruisers as a capable and practical long-range cruising yacht. Built-in Sarasota, Florida to very high standards, she is safe, comfortable, and fast. Built-in safety features include the laminated hull-to-deck joint and collision bulkheads creating watertight compartments at the ends of each hull. Several Manta 42's have completed circumnavigations and Manta enjoys one of the highest percentages of live aboard owners of any production boat.

Deck & Equipment

The hull, deck, bulkheads, and sub-sole are vacuumed bagged utilizing a varying lamination schedule of biaxial, triaxial, and unidirectional cloth, cored with Core Cell (hull and deck) and Nida Core honeycomb coring (bulkheads, sub-sole) and laminated with vinylester and isophthalic resins. Wetted surfaces below the waterline are solid GRP construction with vinylester resin and above the waterline in the hull and deck isopthalic resin is used. In the areas of the thru-hulls, chainplates and deck hardware the construction is solid GRP. All deck hardware is thru-bolted with aluminum backing plates laminated into the respective location. Kevlar is used to reinforce the bow and keel areas. Thru-hull fitting and sea cocks are non-corrosive Marelon. The hull-to-deck marriage is done with 3M 5200 marine adhesive and then reinforced with 360-degree unidirectional laminates inside the hull/deck bond for additional structural integrity and stiffness and to create a monocoque structure.
The Manta 42 uses stub keels, not daggerboards, and the fin sections are integral to the hull and give the boat a draft of just 3’8″. Twin rudders are made with high-density foam with a fiberglass covering. The rudderstocks are solid 2-inch stainless steel.
The cabin entry door from the cockpit is more like a watertight hatch than a sliding patio door.
The fractional sail plan includes a full-batten mainsail and a small self-tacking jib. The Camber Spar helps maintain jib shape. For Deep reaching and running, the furling spinnaker (screecher) includes a Kevlar luff that it furls around on a Facnor furler.

Your team delivered on every mark. You’ve got an amazing broker in Mark Wattrus and I’m confident you will have continued success moving forward together. He was available 24/7 whenever I had questions. We had a great initial visit on the boat and his marketing plan and photos were superb

I bought a yacht that I had never seen. I did this because I trusted my broker Andrew Holland. It was not an easy job for Andrew, as I am an experienced boat builder and owner of previous yachts, but work in West Africa. Imagine how hard it was to communicate what I was looking for. Andrew came up with exactly what I wanted. He dealt with time delays, all my questions at odd hours, and was there for the survey. He reported honestly and professionally. After buying the yacht, I arrived at the boat on a Sunday night, after dark, after travelling from West Africa to the Caribbean, and found it was better than expected. He never pulled punches and made me aware of shortfalls. I expected to spend my one month leave working on the boat, but actually spent less than one week, and was able to spend 3 weeks sailing – wonderful bonus.

Thank you Andrew for putting up with all my questions, all my worries and all my crazy out of the time zone concerns – you were totally professional, but also I know that if and when we meet up, it will be like a friend finally meeting. You are always welcome on Aseka.

Outstanding company with professional subject matter experts. If I were to buy or sell cruising sailboat, particularly a catamaran, Andrew would be my go to broker.

I have been sailing since I was a child and attended Massachusetts Maritime Academy. But when my wife and I began the process of purchasing an ocean cruising/racing catamaran, I realized that this is a world unto itself. Obviously, we needed to find someone knowledgeable to help us make an informed decision. More importantly, we needed someone honest and willing to put our interests before his or her own. I was lucky to work with Phil Berman at The Multihull Company. He repeatedly shunned the fast buck, choosing instead to work the long road to connect us with the “perfect boat”. I would be glad to recommend Phil and his company to anyone planning to purchase or sell a performance sailing machine.

— Eric Boutiette

Andrew Hodgdon was our broker when we bought our 2018 Lagoon 450F in Antigua in April 2922. He provided great service and was very attentive to our needs. We would highly recommend Andrew and the Multihull Company.
