Nona Manis

30x10ft Dutch steel river cruiser

2ft8 draft

7ft4 airdraft

6ft4 head height in cabin


With a good steel hull and superstructure, Nona Manis represents tremendous value for someone who wants a sturdy liveaboard on a budget, but can’t bear the thought of a GRP. Powered by a Mercedes OM636 inboard diesel engine, this Dutch boat could be the perfect way to get on the water. 


As an import, she will need a BSS and we can put you in touch with the right people to get this done. The canvasses could use some attention (Shepperton Covers have quoted us £450 to replace the window panes and zips). 


There’s a Webasto Air Top 2000 diesel hot air central heating system and there’s an inverter to provide 240v power to the boat. There is a sea toilet which can be closed with a seacock, and a cassette could be used as a replacement. In the galley you’ll find a three way fridge, gas hob and sink. (All on-board equipment is untested by us). There is a solar charge controller but the solar panels have been removed. There is no shower or hot water heating on the boat. 


The seals on the windows are all good with no leaking into the cabin. There is a v-berth double as well as the dinette being available as a fold-down double so could sleep 4. 


The engine runs well and we’ll be doing the blacking and anodes before we send her on her way. As always, we will lift the boat for free if you require a survey.
