S/V Indigo Dawn is a Fort Pierce, FL based 1998 Manta 40 Catamaran For Sale By Owner. This MANTA 40 is one of the nicest and cleanest yachts available. This boat is BEAUTIFUL! Fully loaded and ready to sail for the short term or long term cruiser. This vessel is turn key and ready to start the next sailing adventure.

We have been fortunate to sail up and down the East Coast and through out the Chesapeake, as well as spend four months in the Bahamas. However, due to unforeseen medical needs we are forced to cut our plans a bit short and put her on the market.

If you are looking for one of the best values on the market of a fully loaded cruising Catamaran look no further. In 2019 this Manta under went a total restoration inside and out and is ready to take its new owner on adventures far and wide. Have the confidence as you set sail to explore the world beyond, that the recently upgraded equipment will give you years of carefree service. You will be hard pressed to find another Sail Catamaran with this much to offer at this price.

This blue water cruiser was made by Endeavour Catamarans in Largo, Florida. It is an excellent example of what a cruising couples boat should be, relaxing. From the Profurl boom furling mainsail with unlimited reefing points, to the signature Manta Camber Spar Jib with hands free tacking. Having all halyards and sheets run back to the Harken 44 2 speed power winch, sailing doesn’t get much easier. You have total control from the comfort and safety of the cockpit.

Enjoy interior comfort with this owners version layout. The port hull features a stateroom with a Queen berth with lots of drawers and closet space, hallway with bookshelves and loads of pantry storage, and a head with a glass shower door & generous walk in shower. While the Starboard side has a second Queen berth, again with lots of storage, a hallway bookshelf, and an additional single berth or garage, while sharing a second head. The well designed u-shaped galley, highly efficient drop in, 10 cu. ft fridge/ freezer, salon and navigation station are found midship. All with excellent viewing with wrap around windows.

This value will be tough to match, certainly at this affordable price.
