- Jensen Beach Florida United States
- Fiberglass Hull
Spending in excess of $100,000, the sellers renovated and updated this immaculately clean and well maintained vessel in 2021-2022.
In the 1980’s many trawlers were built in Taiwan boatyards; Bestway Marine was considered one of the top boat builders of the day. These trawlers are known for being built to last, with incredible teak joinery. One family owned Manana until her current owners bought her in March, 2021. They have spent their time of ownership updating her, but health issues force them to put her on the market.
The folding mast meet the bridge clearance requirements for America’s Great Loop.
The entire exterior of Manana was professionally repainted by the current owners. The bottom was also painted when Manana was on the hard in Fort Pierce, FL. The teak interior has been cleaned and polished; there are no current leaks. The owners have also updated all of the flybridge electronics, had the engine and generator serviced, added a new davit system and dinghy, redecorated the entire interior with new furniture and décor, replaced the galley appliances, painted the heads, updated the safety equipment, replaced all of the head and galley fixtures, and replaced all of the aft deck furniture. They have even replaced the doorknobs as needed! Manana is ready to cruise.

1987 Marine Trader LaBelle 40 Motor Yacht Deck and Hull
The entire exterior of Manana was professionally painted in May 2021. The non-skid deck has a nice grid pattern. The bottom was painted in June 2021. The handrails are also painted white, so there is no exterior teak to maintain. The current owners also replaced the lifeline.
Manana is professionally washed monthly and was detailed in April 2022. The bottom is cleaned monthly by a professional diver.

The open aft deck on Manana will be a favorite place to unwind and relax to watch a sunrise with a cup of coffee, or a sunset with your favorite beverage. The patterned ceiling has a very unique tin-type design.
There is a cabinet to starboard with a Koblenz Sommelier Wine Refrigerator. The aft deck also features: four stainless steel hawse pipes, two “rocket launcher” style rod holders, five stereo speakers, a dimmable ceiling light added by the current owner, a Magma propane grill, and a bell. There is a pass-through to the flybridge. Double teak doors lead down into the salon, with a convenient teak handhold mounted over the steps.
The current owners furnished the aft deck with two Midland patio chairs, by Zipcode Design ($600 each) with canvas cushions and protective covers, and a Lucaya double ottoman with a Sunbrella fabric cushion ($470) with a protective cover. A large all-weather wicker deck box has two attached red cushions for guest seating, and two mounted stainless steel HYDDNice cup holders for your guests’ beverages.
