S/V Ruatahi started life as a 1999 Manta 40 and is now a Manta 46 catamaran for sale by owner.
I worked with a famous Naval Architect (Gunboat fame amongst other things) to see if we couldn’t improve the motion and load carrying capabilities also to bump the performance up a little. The sterns have been extended, and she’s about 46’ LOA now. The rudders have been extended also to give better control.
Ruatahi has many other customizations and upgrades including an extended mast, “kiwi prop” saildrives, and a Hurricane diesel hot water and heating system. Contact me to see her!
