Hello,

We want to make Boat International the best destination for owners and lovers of superyachts, and we need your help to tell us more about yourselves and what interests you.

Our reader survey covers work, income, interests and hobbies, and most importantly – yacht ownership. We will use your responses to inform the boats we write about, the subjects we cover, and the advertising you will see.

It will take 5-10 minutes to complete. All answers are completely anonymous, and the responses are collected by our research partner, Tapestry.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Eurocraft and Marimecs reveal Manta 65 explorer yacht concept

Italian yard Eurocraft and Dutch naval architecture firm Marimecs have revealed a new range of 30-65 metre yacht concepts called the Manta Series, which is being offered as a fully-serviced package for sale through Yacht & Villa.

These long-range displacement yachts would be built from a round-bilged steel hull and aluminium superstructure to Lloyd’s Registry standards with an emphasis on excellent seakeeping, low fuel consumption and quiet operation.

Willem Stolk from Marimecs said: “Explorer yacht design has always been one of our favourite fields of work, and this design series is based on decades of practical, as well as artistic, experience.”

The largest model in the range is the Manta 65, which features a total interior volume of 1,630GT. The large aft deck is ideal for tender storage, with plenty of room for loading superyacht water toys via a davit crane as well.

External relaxation options are plentiful, with a pair of sunloungers on the owner’s deck aft, an al fresco dining area on the bridge deck and superyacht spa pool on the sundeck.

Accommodation is for 12 guests split between six cabins, with four doubles on the lower deck, a VIP suite forward on the main deck, and the owner’s cabin on the upper deck.

Other key features include an indoor dining area on the main deck, with space for all 12 guests to enjoy a meal around a rectangular dining table. The adjacent galley allows for quick and discrete service.

Power would come from a pair of 2,011hp engines for a top speed of 16 knots and a maximum cruising range of 5,000 nautical miles at 13 knots, thanks to a total fuel capacity of 185,000 litres.

Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the Eurocraft 44, which is due to hit the water next year.
