The first unit of the Mangusta Oceano 50, a stately model among Mangusta Oceano long-range displacement vessels, was launched on Saturday 5 June.
The Mangusta Oceano 50 is a displacement yacht with a steel hull and an aluminium superstructure. Her outer lines have been pencilled by Alberto Mancini. Naval architecture has been taken care of by engineer Ausonio’s design firm P.L.A.N.A. Design.
She offers her guests a number of pleasant outdoor areas, the most striking one being probably the beach area: featuring a sauna too, it develops over three connected terraces just above the water, for a close contact with the sea.
Integrating the garage in the forward deck plane has resulted in optimised onboard spaces and brought the overall beach club area to an impressive 68 sq. m.
On the main deck, the aft cockpit reminds of the living room of a villa; the aft door opens up fully, letting natural light flood the entire area.
The bow area features revolutionary, cutting-edge technological solutions: the airy and stylish cockpit is located above the garage, which, once the tender has been launched, can be filled with water to obtain a real 6,5 x 2,6 x 1,3 m (depth) swimming pool with a counterflow system. Another hot tub pool can be found on the sun deck, offering a breathtaking sea view.
Stepping indoors, this vessel has a five-cabin layout on the lower deck, with four guest cabins and a full-beam gym, as required by the owner. The spacious (52 sq. m) master stateroom is located on the main deck and is fitted with an exclusive fully-automated balcony overlooking the sea.
Two MTU 12V 2000 M86, 1700 hp engines will push this yacht to a maximum speed of 16 knots, but will also allow her to reach a transoceanic range of 4,500 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 11 knots.
The brokerage house Moran Yacht has secured the sale and subsequently supervised all construction stages. Delivery of this unit is scheduled for the end of July 2021. Two more units are currently under construction, with unit number 3 “Project Salerno” expected to be ready for delivery in spring 2023.
Overmarine Group was founded in 1985 by the Balducci family. The shipyard builds open and displacement power superyachts under the Mangusta and Mangusta Oceanco brand names.
