€2.4M price drop on 43m explorer yacht Flying Manta

5 June 2024 • Written by Katia Damborsky

A €2,450,000 price drop has been announced on the 42.6-metre NQEA explorer yacht Flying Manta, listed for sale with Peter Redford and Eugenio Cannarsa at Fraser.

Flying Manta was first delivered in 2004 as Ophelia and was entirely rebuilt under new ownership between 2015 and 2017. Major work included a six-metre extension, the addition of a Lloyd's certified helideck with refuelling capabilities, a new swim platform and an interior overhaul. She has been impeccably maintained throughout her life and has only ever been used as a private yacht. 

Flying Manta is now asking €13,500,000

Accommodation is for 12 guests and includes an owner’s stateroom and office that occupies 50 square metres on the main deck. A stairway leads to the VIP stateroom on the lower deck with a double berth that can be converted into a twin, and a second stairway leads to a further two double cabins and two convertible cabins.

Naval architecture and exterior design on the all-aluminium 354 GT build is by Glanvilles with interior design by Ivo Enrico Poluzzi in collaboration with Analu. 

The main saloon features a central lounge space with a circular dining table forward to port. Key highlights include a cockpit that can be fully enclosed with air-conditioning, acting as a winter garden, and oyster and lobster tanks next to a barbecue grill where the catch of the day is prepared and served fresh.

Power to the 354GT yacht for sale comes from a pair of MTU 12V4000 M90 diesel engines delivering a top speed of 24 knots and a range of 4,000 nautical miles at 11 knots. Two gyro Seakeeper stabilisers and fin stabilisers keep her steady at anchor and underway. 

Flying Manta is now asking €13,500,000.
