Manta’s 10 Year Anniversary

In celebration of Manta Maritime’s 10 year anniversary directors Anthony Gradwell and Ken Appleby held a fabulous party at Heston Blumenthal’s world renowned Fat Duck restaurant. Whilst Heston wasn’t there in person, he was very much present in each of the 16 courses of molecular gastronomy. Highlights included cocktails prepared in liquid nitrogen, hot and cold rabbit tea, and after-dinner treats dispensed from a £150,000 model sweetshop.

Since its humble beginning in March 2006, Manta has diversified from solely providing maritime regulatory advice to the large yachting industry, to a full range of management and consulting services including surveying, new-building supervision, and the full management of large yachts and passenger ships.

Current non-management projects include providing technical superintendency services to a 134m passenger yacht, and new-build support to a 116m passenger yacht.

I am very proud of what Manta has achieved and how we’ve developed over the first 10 years, but now the real work begins – building our fleet of managed yachts, and expanding our products and services. Here’s to another 10 years of challenges and growth!
Anthony Gradwell (Managing Director)
