Built on Italy's North Coast at the Eurocraft facility in Savona to Lloyds Classification, the Manta series has been developed by a multi-national team following market research and is intended to provide a well-priced and engineered long-range yacht series.

The models in the series will use a specific layout. The aft main deck accommodates toys and tenders, eliminating the need for a tender garage and any launching equipment. The starboard side of the yacht accommodates a lobby, which provides entrance to the main deck’s saloon.

Thanks to the yacht’s wide body, the full-beam saloon with dining area is spacious, befitting a luxury yacht. The forward part of the main deck offers a separate owner’s area, which enables a private retreat.

The forward part of the lower deck houses the crew area, whilst the stern offers a beach club and extra storage. The lower deck houses a full-beam VIP cabin and two more guest cabins.

The bridge deck offers a large bridge with comfortable lounge corner, which due to explorer characteristics, is part of the yacht’s living space. The saloon aft of the bridge is another place to reside, with impressive views outside and easy direct access to the bridge or spacious aft deck.

The sundeck is dedicated to alfresco living and sunbathing. It includes a spa pool surrounded by sun pads, a bar and more comfortable lounging options. Alternative arrangements and options are available as per owner’s request.
