The Manta Series has been designed and engineered by the legendary Dutch Naval Architecture firm Marimecs B.V. and developed in a joint venture with superyacht brokerage firm Yacht & Villa and will be sold through their offices in Golfe Juan on the French Cote d’Azur and London in the UK.
Marimecs B.V. are well known within the industry: their engineering work can be found at the heart of many superyachts built by well-known superyacht builders, including Feadship, Royal Huisman, Amels, and Moonen.
The Manta series will be built at the Eurocraft facility in Savona, on the North Coast of Italy.
“After considering many options for the construction, we settled on what has been a low-profile yard to-date, but with an excellent reputation for quality and integrity,” said a representative from Yacht & Villa.
Eurocraft has good build capacity and is currently undergoing a phase of investment. As well as an expansion of its construction facilities the yard is currently constructing a 300-metre quay and 800 Tonne travel-lift to provide a convenient option for refit and maintenance in the Mediterranean.
Hot Lab is the official Interior Designer of the series with each model price being inclusive of a custom Hot Lab interior.
The Manta Yachts business model is unique and features a multinational collaboration intended to provide the highest possible efficiency, quality and value for the customer.
Models include the Manta 30, 35, 45, 55 and 65. There is also a Manta 50 under development which will be approximately 750GT.
