Construction

Completed in 2003 by the owner to a high standard on professional mouldings by Corvette Marine.  Blue painted GRP semi-displacement hull with spray rails and rubbing strakes.  Varnished toe rail.  White GRP superstructure with non-slip painted deck.  Aft self draining cockpit.  Long keel with keel hung rudder.  Wheel steering.  The hull was epoxy coated from new with International Gel Shield.

Additional Comments

Completed by the owner to a high standard on professionally built mouldings, Manatee is a characterful and comfortable motor cruiser.  The large deep cockpit is ideal for angling, or just lazing around and entertaining, and there is enough accommodation to get out of the weather with her well fitted saloon.  There is a double berth forward for weekending and the addition of a marine toilet would make her suitable for coastal cruising.  The semi-displacement hull form is the ultimate in seakeeping ability and allows economical cruising at 12 knots, with a top speed of 20 knots to get you home ahead of any bad weather.  A delightful craft that has only been lightly used and is ready to launch.
