Classic Design Married to Modern Technology


The owners want this beautiful boat sold before winter and have lowered the price by almost $25,000.  

If you have been watching her, now is the time to move!

Over the years, yachting has evolved into wanting to have your home and all of it's amenities floating in the slip.  The cookie cutter boats line the docks, with one huge stern after the other.  That's just fine for most boaters but, for those of us who have a soft spot for the classics, it's not what we want.

Along the lines of other classic yachts, the Block Island 40 stands out as one of the most beautiful and well found boats you could ever call your own.  When Eric Woods, owner of Migrator Yachts, decided to build the Block Island 40, he made a few design improvements.  The deckhouse is a little longer than the original, the centerboard and rudder are more efficient; and modern materials like AIREX coring in the hull are used.  The rig is simple and the decks uncluttered.

Manitou is a lovely, well-mannered yacht.  Her design is poetry on the water and her owners have been the most excellent care takers. She has been used in the Chesapeake Bay by her current owners but, is fully capable of open ocean work.  Her centerboard design makes her perfect for the shallower waters of the Bay and in open water, the board allows sparkling upwind performance.

If you experience the draw of classic elegance, and appreciate an expertly maintained boat, Manitou is for you.

  • Versatile yawl rig
  • Centerboard with only 4'2" draft, board up, and 8'10" when down
  • Beautiful light, bright interior with reverse cycle heat and air
  • Espar diesel heat for three season use
  • New headliner installed at Hinckley
  • Extensive canvas, sun covers, sun shades and full boat cover
  • Teak is flawless, just finished in 2015
  • Dinghy and outboard included
  • Only 1566 hours on her Yanmar 4JHE
  • Entire boat is lightly used and meticulously maintained

Don't miss this opportunity.  You simply can not duplicate Manitou.

Honestly, this is one of the most spectacular yachts I have been fortunate enough to represent.  Everything is first rate.
