This 2004 Manta 42 Mark II is a great example of the finest production cruising catamaran ever built. She has been designated as such by the prestigious editorial board of Sail Magazine in their article The Top 10 Cruising Catamarans in their July 30, 2019 issue.
The sellers of S/V Allergic to Cities were so sold on her abilities that they have owned her TWICE!...as new initiates to the cruising lifestyle in 2006-2009 and again, as returning cruising veterans in 2014-present. This boat has proven to be a worthy traveler over the past several years as her current owners have spent several winter’s cruising the Windward and Leeward chain of islands from the upper to the lower Caribbean and back.
And now, with great reluctance, the sellers age and lifestyles have afforded the offering of this fine vessel to new owners to enjoy. Allergic to Cities represents all the comforts and styling cruisers seek in a seaworthy yacht. They have been diligent in upgrading electronic systems and maintaining the mechanicals, as well as creating an extremely comfortable cruising platform.
Be sure to take a close look at this offering. She will sell soon and will reward her new owners with a reliable, safe and trustworthy time afloat..
