Two months after its official launch the builder has sold its first GranSport 33 to a US client
After its world preview at Miami in February, Overmarine has announced the sale of its first Mangusta GranSport 33 to an American owner.
“This sale confirms that our project - developed with a strong focus on achieving a perfect combination of design and state-of-the-art technology - is interesting and attractive” comments Mangusta’s Commercial Director Francesco Frediani. “We were counting on its success, but were nonetheless surprised by how fast we moved from the presentation stage – through renderings and videos – to actually securing the deal. In any sale, success always stems from the combination of the right product, an owner who literally falls in love with it, and a highly professional team. In this specific case, our gratitude also goes to our USA Area Manager Stefano Arlunno”.
The Mangusta GranSport line, penciled by Alberto Mancini, has been designed by the Overmarine Group with a view to achieving a very long range at cruising speed as well as high-speed performance.

The Mangusta GranSport 33 is the new entry level in her line, and features a wide flybridge including a sunbathing area, a bar and a living area. Another lounge area furnished with a sofa and a table to dine al fresco is located forward, where a large sunbathing area with Jacuzzi tub can also be found.
Inside, the main deck features a spacious and bright salon with ceiling-high windows, two of which can be opened to ensure natural air circulation. The galley, adjacent to the salon, allows the crew to serve guests easily and efficiently. The master stateroom is also located on the main deck.
The lower deck hosts four guest cabins, for which several configurations are available.
The GranSport 33 is powered by an innovative propulsion system that pushes her to a maximum speed of 26 knots while also ensuring incredibly low vibrations and great noiselessness, the builder claims.
Other distinctive technical features include a ’Joystick Docking’ system, dynamic positioning - a function that allows the yacht to maintain any pre-set position - and the electronically-driven fin stabilizers system.
Thanks to her limited draft of 1.9 m (6.2 ft), she can cruise in very shallow waters, enabling the owner to enjoy the Bahamas during the winter season or the Hamptons in the summer.
Mangusta says that nine of its Maxi Open yachts have been delivered over the last six years – a clear indicator the builder says, of how well the US market has taken to the brand.
The brand is now beginning to be recognized also for some product lines that move away from its core: the Mangusta Oceano Namastè, a yacht belonging to the long-range 3-decker line, was awarded as “Best in Show” upon her debut in the US, at the latest Fort Lauderdale Boat Show; while the Mangusta GranSport “El Leon”, the 54-meter flagship of the new fast displacement line, has also garnered significant interest Manugusta claims.
Overmarine Group’s Interiors Department is already working jointly with the Owner on the layout definition and customization and on the selection of furniture, furnishings, and décor details to the Owner’s taste.
