TE MANA | Kanter 65 Pilothouse Bouganvillea | 65ft
Launched in summer 2005, TE MANA is a custom design based upon C. W. Paine's fast-sailing “Bouganvillea” series. When inspecting the boat, the main tenets in design become evident. Fast, easily sailed by two, incredible pilothouse views, quiet, bomb-proof commercial engine, walkability on decks and below, and easy deployment of an oversized tender. TE MANA is arguably the nicest boat that Kanter Yachts of Ontario, Canada has ever built. Her fit and finish exceed what had been demanded
by other owners and she was modified with innumerable upgrading of original equipment specifications. It was no wonder that Cruising World Magazine voted her BOAT OF THE YEAR in 2005. Since then, TE MANA has been sailed extensively, from the Canadian Maritimes to the Caribbean. She motors at a diesel-sipping 3.3 nmpg at 8.5 knots and excels under sail. Enjoy watching the miles roll away (220+ mile days) from the expansive views of the large pilothouse or quietly survey the harbor from its comfortable settees and luxurious appointments. TE MANA has received ongoing maintenance, and in 2014, the entire hull was professionally painted Awlgrip FLAG BLUE. Other recent upgrades include: - Repainting of decks and top sides (Awlgrip, 2015) - 12' AB RIB Tender & 25 hp Mercury Outboard (2014) - KVH V3 Satellite Communication System (2013) - New Sails - New Forespar Leisure-Furl Hydraulic Boom Furling System - Plus much, much more! A true pleasure to show, TE MANA is an ideal cruising vessel, completely fitted out and ready for her next adventure!
