Welcome to the boat page for the catamaran Cerca
Trova. She is the last Manta 42 built, hull #127,and

are well aware of the legacy she represents. We take
up her reins and
have changed her name to reflect our planned adventures with her.
We have posted a few photos of her to see more of her detail, via the button at left. The original
