Would you like to go on a Sailing trip around the Osa Peninsula and around the world famous Corcovado National Park? Then we are delighted to take you on a trip with the magnificent sailboat Manawa Nui.

We can drop anchor in a hidden bay and go sunbathing on a deserted island, take the surfboards and surf world class waves, take trips to hidden and hard to reach shores… possibilities are endless.

We offer an English speaking captain and crew, who are dedicated to give you a great experience.

The Manawa Nui is massively built and exceptionally well found. Her graceful, double-ended hull was designed to ease through the waves, while her shallow draft is ideal for dallying in secret coves.

The pilothouse saloon or living room of Manawa Nui is comfortable and spacy. Its doors always provide a refreshing airflow. Windows are located throughout the living room and you’ll have a great view on the surrounding ocean and nature. There are venetian blinds for privacy.

Manawa Nui can accommodate up to 4 guests in two extremely comfortable cabins. The Master Cabin is fitted with a large double bed while the forward cabin has two oversized twin beds. Both cabins offer the privacy of their own ensuite heads with showers. The safe, uncluttered decks provide a variety of seating and lounging arrangements. The foredeck settee, unusual on a sailing vessel of this size, is a particularly lovely spot to relax.

Manawa Nui was the winner of 1999 Concours d’Elegance, racing at Antigua Classic Regatta
