1997 Manta 40 | Lioness III

Lioness III is a classic 1997 Manta 40 Sailing Catamaran that offers comfort and performance on the open seas. Having been utilized as a liveaboard vessel, this yacht is ideal for families and friend groups on both longer and shorter trips.

She can comfortably accommodate up to six people comfortable in three double berth cabins, with two bathrooms on board. The saloon includes the galley and features a comfortable, build in dining space that can easily fit in additional seating if needed. The interior is light and cheerful, accented with varnished teak and holly underfoot.

The cockpit of this Manta 40 is unique, offering wrap-around seating that can cater for everyone, with a tiered couch towards the back. Forward on the exterior is a large trampoline that offers yet another communal space.

Lioness III is a testament to the classic design of the Manta 40, having been a liveaboard yacht up and down the Queensland Coast. This is a brand that is trusted for a reason, with the solid build and honeycomb Nida-Core polypropylene of the hulls reducing weight and increasing strength. Below the waterline features solid glass and vinylester.

This yacht has been well-maintained by the owners, with new Volvo engines installed in 2020, new rigging December of 2023, and sails of ages ranging from 2020 to 2023. Nothing has been neglected in the running of Lioness III, and she is in amazing shape.

This catamaran is made for traveling in comfort, safety, and style. Find your next home on the sea with Lioness III and contact our team to arrange an inspection.
