Cruisers 1985 Krogen Manatee

Off Market since Aug 22nd 2018

To see full description of this boat from the seller click on the Seller Description tab above.

Kind of The Little Ship That Could, The Krogen Manatee is known in cruising circles as a boat that can take you long distances in comfort. This example has undergone a major refit over a period of 10 years by an owner who spared no expense. New electrical, plumbing, galley equipment and fixtures, etc., have been added in that time period. Now purposed as a live-aboard in Santa Barbara, she is decorated throughout with custom teak carved trim, beautifully framed nautical artworks and photographs, antique furniture and elegant accents.

If you are looking for a getaway that would include being in Santa Barbara, the opportunity to cruise Californias Channel Islands - and beyond - this capable, comfortable boat might be for you. She is offered with a 43 Santa Barbara Slip (at additional cost) and makes a snug live-aboard within walking distance to downtown, the funk zone, and all the waterfront has to offer.

Showing of this boat is by appointment only. Please call to arrange a visit.
