Manta is a Marconi/Bermudan Cutter
Ex Toosa, was built for Milanese industrialist Dante Ceschina and was one of Tarabocchia’s first forays into naval architecture.
In 1950s, she was known as Paitan and Odilia. In the early 1980s, Manta was purchased by Ernesto Irace, a lawyer, and began attending the classic rallies in 1985, including Porto Cervo (third in her class, 1985), Palma de Majorca (fifth overall, 1986) and Imperia (first in class in real time). Her logo is a bear which is said to reflect her owner’s personality. In 2004, Manta was given a full restoration in La Spezia under the supervision of Franco Giorgetti and Luigi Lang.

Bermudan Cutter, built by the shipwright Pietro Tarabocchia.
Dante Ceschina, a well-known Milanese yachtsman and passionate navigator, was the first owner of the Toosa (now Manta), built and launched at the end of April 1935 in Mali Lošinj in the Tarabocchia shipyard.
Manta has actively participated in the life of the vintage boats and in the events since the first editions of the 80s.
After a long and thorough total restoration carried out by the Skipper shipyard in La Spezia, Manta received the award for the best restoration at the Livorno Naval Academy Trophy in 2004.
