Im looking at trying to pick up a Manta 19, but I was wondering about the feasibility of installing a small diesel with a sail-drive. I am much happier looking after and running diesels than outboards!

Has anyone done anything like this? Or is there not the space?

All the best


hcasares hcasares Mon 03 Oct 2016 13:37:43 Hello! I don't see how to do that, as there is no room for an engine in the cabin behind the keel. If you take a look at any picture of a manta out of the water, you can see that the point where the keel finishes there is only cockpit over it.

It is quite obvious in this image.

With this I mean that it is difficult to mount an engine with saildrive. It would be possible, but not worth the effort in my opinion, to put a shaft engine.
