86' Stephens 1975 CHINTA MANIS


Heavily constructed to extremely high standards by Stephens Marine of Stockton, California, CHINTA MANIS is a true oceangoing motor yacht with many of the attributes of a small ship. With a 4,000 mile range, she has crossed the Atlantic twice and the Pacific once and has cruised the Mediterranean, Caribbean, Bahamas, Alaska, French Polynesia, Fiji and New Caledonia. Her stately lines and seagoing appearance stand out in any port she visits.

CHINTA MANIS’s layout features spacious accommodations for owners, guests and crew. There are also exceptional spaces on the aft deck, the sun deck and in the salon and pilothouse for group gatherings.

Anyone seeking a well-maintained, long-range motor yacht of unique character would be well advised to have a look at CHINTA MANIS.
