The Overmarine Group in Italy has launched the first unit of the brand new Mangusta 132 model. The launch took place at its shipyard in Viareggio. The yacht will be presented as a world premiere at the Monaco Yacht Show in September this year.
The Mangusta 132 is the fourth Mangusta Maxi Open model to be introduced onto the market over the past two years, after Mangusta models 94, 110 and 165 E.
Overmarine says in a statement that the yacht clearly highlights the recent technical and style evolution of Mangusta yachts. “Her external lines are the distinctive ones of Mangusta tradition, racy and sporty, with the new aesthetic and structural features that are being added to recent models. These include new glazing on the main deck, a single piece of glass at the height of the salon which offers excellent visibility from the inside allowing copious amounts of natural light to enter; the new, more aggressive, more modern line of the flybridge with its aesthetic grating, and the amazingly generous size of the sundeck, which can be used as a private area for the owners and also be fitted out with a second helm station,” reads the statement.
Along with the external design, the yacht also features a technical evolution: a new hull to which all the hydrodynamic improvements on Mangusta 165 have been transferred; new engines; the waterjets propulsion system, and Zero Speed gyroscopic stabilisers both at anchor and underway, all of which contribute to further improving onboard comfort and extending the range of uses of this yacht. Indeed, it is now possible to sail at a low speed at reduced consumption whilst enjoying comfort at all times.
In addition, the yacht has been created to the wishes and requirements of her owner who, this being his second Mangusta yacht, knew exactly how to use the potential of this model to the very best.
As with all Mangusta yachts, the Group’s Interiors Design Department knew exactly what to offer the Owner in terms of interior layouts, style and personalised decor solutions, fully-satisfying his desires and tastes. In this case, the owner chose a 4-cabin layout with an extra salon on the lower deck (the standard is five cabins).
The current Mangusta range features Maxi Opens from 72 to 215 ft. The Mangusta 165, the tenth unit of which was just sold, with her 50m in length and able to reach a speed of 40 knots depending by the featured engine power train, is currently the fastest Maxi Open in the world of her length.
Overmarine has also announced that a new ocean-going vessel range has been added: the Mangusta Oceano line. Designed to successfully enter a different market segment, the long range production offers owners exclusive on board comfort by integrating the latest technological processes and the most advanced marine equipment with inside volumes difficult to find on the market. It features vessels of 42m and of 46m, both under construction. Other projects up to 55m are in plan.
Over the past few years, the Group has implemented a strategic development plan to expand and renew its range, focusing on growth and greater efficiency, that is maintaining a high performance and onboard comfort whilst at the same time ensuring increasingly lower consumption.
