Check out the incredible news about the 42.6-metre NQEA explorer yacht FLYING MANTA! This beauty has just slashed its price by a whopping €2,050,000 and is now listed for sale at €15,950,000. She has quite the story – first delivered in 2004 as OPHELIA, it underwent a complete transformation under new ownership between 2015 and 2017. The refurbishment included a six-meter extension, the addition of a Lloyd’s certified helideck with refuelling capabilities, a new swim platform, and a stunning interior overhaul where 90% of the existing interior was replaced or upgraded. And get this – she’s been used exclusively for private purposes.

With accommodation for 12 guests, including a luxurious owner’s stateroom and office covering 50 square meters on the main deck, FLYING MANTA offers an unparalleled experience. The VIP stateroom on the lower deck features a double bed that can be converted into a twin, while two double cabins and two convertible cabins provide ample space for guests.

Designed by Glanvilles and Ivo Enrico Poluzzi in collaboration with Analu, her interior boasts a mix of woods with pops of reds and oranges, creating a warm and inviting ambiance. The main saloon is a sight to behold, featuring a central lounge space and a circular dining table, and don’t miss the fully enclosed cockpit with air-conditioning, acting as a delightful winter garden.

But let’s talk power – She is equipped with 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. Plus, with two gyro Seakeeper stabilizers and fin stabilizers, she remains steady at anchor and underway.

If you’re dreaming of owning this stunning yacht, she’s currently lying in Loano, Italy. Don’t miss out on the chance to make Flying Manta yours!
