The manifold system absolutely reduces the amount of through hull penetrations below the water line, and it is a great design, but does not eliminate all of them as some salesmen would have you think. You've got the high speed pick-ups for pumps, drain plug, manifold exit, cockpit exits, bilge pump exit, and fuel vent (I'm sure I'm missing one more).
If that's the case and the cockpit drains have dedicated scuppers that are separate from that manifold, then I definately see the advantage to the manifold design. Close all plumbing by shutting off one seacock. Seems like a good idea.
