2004 Sunseeker MANHATTAN

San Diego, United States


The Sunseeker Manhattan 56, BELLA VITA is a sophisticated and stylish European motor yacht. Her large cockpit and roomy flybridge are matched by her spacious multi-level interior with its high-gloss cherry cabinets and rich fabrics. The elegantly appointed salon provides a separate dining area forward and facing settees aft. The master stateroom has an ensuite bathroom with a shower, while a second bathroom serves the two double guest staterooms. Each stateroom features a flat-screen TV. A ladder provides access from the lower helm to the flybridge where the seating can be converted to a panoramic lounge area. She’s powered by twin Cat C12 700 hp engines. The cooling system maintenance was recently performed for each engine, including the heat exchangers and after-coolers being removed and sent out for professional service.
