The Overmarine Group has announced the sale of two Maxi Open yachts to the American market. The first of which, a Mangusta 165, is the current flagship of the Mangusta fleet and the third in the series to be sold to this market in the last three years. The second, a Mangusta 94, is a new model recently launched in Europe where the first two units were delivered.
Mangusta is one of the world leaders in the Maxi Open yachts segment, which are fast, large vessels, making them ideal for Northern American cruising, especially in areas such as Florida, where the distance between destinations is short and therefore relatively quick to reach due to high cruising speeds. The same is true of the Hamptons resort as these hulls are able to sail in shallower waters thanks to hydro-jet propulsion.
Mangusta 165#10 is a 50m flagship, and one of the fastest yachts in her category to date. Depending on the engines chosen, the hull will be able to reach speeds of up to 40 knots, powered by 4 MTU 16V2000M94 2600 HP engines, four Rolls Royce/KameWa NP water-jets and four Seakeeper stablisers for greater stability at anchor and sailing.
She is characterised by the new ‘evo’ aesthetics and propulsion systems, which are expressed with more aggressive, muscular lines, and new glazing on the main deck allowing more visibility from the top deck. The yacht features a more elongated flybridge and aesthetic grill astern resulting in greater dynamic thrust.
As a new model, Mangusta 94#04 has distinctive racy and sporty Mangusta lines with new aestetic and structural innovations have been added, like single glazing, larger outdoor areas, a bow cockpit, sunbathing area and liveable sundeck. At just under 30-metres LOA, she has spacious on-board voluments??, powered by 2600 HP engines and gyroscopic stabilisers.
According to the Overmarine Group, with these designs, great attention was paid to increasing on-board comfort, especially while at anchor, and in increased efficiency, allowing the hulls to maintain high performance with lower fuel consumption, operational functions which are well suited to Northern American clients. Structural strengthening was also a focus for these hulls.
Francesco Frediani, group commercial director said, “These investments have now started to bear fruit. The sale of these two Maxi Open yachts confirms that American clients appreciate the technical engineering characteristics and functional setup of our yachts. We can say that, even in the States, the Mangusta branch is increasingly more associated with products of a high technical content and exceptional on-board comfort, able to arouse those feelings only top, renowned Italian brands arouse.
