|Spotlight on the Manta 44 Powercat at the 2006 Annapolis Boat Show|
|I think the yellow-hulled Manta 44 comports itself rather well in this line-up at the 2006 Annapolis Powerboat Show|
|To my mind, the Manta 44 is one of the better lookers of the current bevy of available powercats. But there is a price to pay for good looks - for it's size (44' x 21') it doesn't have as much livable space as some of the "uglier" models. It does boast a modern, efficient underbody and, from what I've heard, has excellent performance and fuel economy.|

|This white-hulled Manta was spotted at the Maritime Center in Charleston. I like the wave-busting center cutwater.
The boat's name was PANGAEA. If I'm not mistaken, that's the original super-continent that North America sprang off from several billion years ago. Or, perhaps it has another meaning - sounds like Greek to me!
