Seller's Comments
"Toucan Dream" was the last Manta Hull completed by Dan and Sarah Evan.  We moved to Sarasota to observe the entire fabrication and were at the factory 3 times per week. We made a point to meet every worker that participated in the boat's fabrication and believe that made a difference in her overall quality.  She is an excellent example of what a cruising Catamaran should be. Outfitted and commissioned by very knowledgeable sailors, we were quite deliberate in our selection of systems and equipment. "Toucan Dream" has been lightly sailed and properly maintained with a "we fly coach but our boat goes first-class" philosophy.
