Manta project for sale 3Fri 08 Jul 2022 13:34:41
jb jb Mon 02 May 2022 00:08:16 Sadly having to let my Manta go, I have neither the time or the wherewithal to complete it.
Manta 19 "Grebe", including all the bits - mast, rigging, sails, rudder, suzuki 2.5 outboard, comes with an as-yet unfitted Plastimo 406s reefing kit (still in box), on a braked road trailer.
But... I can't specify the trailer as roadworthy - it needs the brakes servicing, and the bearings checking. I had it moved by somebody using a flat-bed trailer (I can provide contact details if needed).
And.. the boat is just outside of Carlisle CA6, while the sails, rudder, plastimo kit, outboard and some other bits and pieces are at my house in Kendal, LA9.
It's in a bit of state, I think it's a bit better than when I got it, but it's got potential!
Let me know if you want any more details.

The state of the boat *looks* no worse than mine, and I got mine in DK - without a trailer and without a still-boxed jib reefing system - for a sum close to the lowest asking price I remember to have seen in UK listings (650 GBP). In the UK asking prices seem to fall in the range of 600-2700 GBP. Higher on the continent. If the reefing system is brand-new and complete, I'd say that this boat is for free.

Next stop, of course, is ebay....
