The latest project in the Mangusta Oceano displacement line, a 42-metre yacht in steel and aluminium designed by Alberto Mancini, was presented at the recent Monaco Yacht Show.

Group CEO Maurizio Balducci noted: “We are proud of this new displacement yacht as we feel she will satisfy the demands of owners who spend substantial amounts of time cruising who want complete on-board comfort and modern conveniences.”

Designer Alberto Mancini developed the project. This is his first cooperation with the Overmarine Group. He was able to successfully meld the stylistic features and family feeling of the Mangusta Maxi Open line of yachts to create this new three-deck displacement vessel.

On the bow deck the external area features two separate sunbathing areas, which plunge into a swimming pool with a continuous waterfall. A glazed skylight on the bottom of the pool brings light and translucence to the head in the owner suite on the deck below.

Astern, the hatch opens out over the sea creating a platform where the glazed surfaces turn into a source of natural light. Nocturnal lighting of the underwater beams fitted astern can also filter through for added effect at night.

The interiors have been designed to accommodate up to twelve guests ensuring total privacy and freedom of movement. A crew of seven services the boat.

The main deck houses the salon and the dining room, the lobby, the galley and the full-beam owner’s suite at the bow, which features a terrace over the sea.

The salon features huge windows through which natural light enters and a sliding door offering great views directly over the sea. In the owner’s suite, sliding doors link the bedroom to the head. Refracted light enters the head through the transparent bottom of the pool on the overlying sun bridge helping to give an increased perception of space.

There are four guest cabins on the lower deck, two doubles and two twins, all with en-suites. In the bow is the crew area with three double cabins. The captain’s cabin, however, is on the upper deck next to the cockpit.

Alberto Mancini’s interior design features soft contrasts of warm and cold materials: dove-grey oak flooring, bleached teak and sycamore bulkheads, alcantara, leather and steel combined with fabrics and linen, silk and soft leather sewn onto panels.

The vessel has a beam of 8.7 metres and a maximum draft of 2.4 metres. Fully laden she displaces 390 tons. Power comes from two MTU 12V 2000 M72 engines giving a cruise speed of 11 knots, a pace that offers a range of over 4,000 miles. The top speed is 15 knots (at half load) or even 16 with the optional MTU 16V 2000 M72 engines.
