Overmarine Launches Mangusta 165 Evolution
Published: Tuesday, 04 March 2014
Hull number eight in the Mangusta 165 series has been launched in Viareggio, on Italy’s picturesque Costa Ligure. The 165 series has proven extremely popular in the six years since production began, with hull number nine almost complete and due to launch soon.
The flagship of the Maxi Open Mangusta fleet is the Mangusta 165E, where E stands for Evolution. The yacht features number of new aesthetic and structural features, many originating from the owner. These include a new side window providing excellent visibility from the inside and letting in more natural light, and alterations to the flybridge and forward superstructure which has been redesigned in order to house a large U-shaped divan, giving this yacht more modern, aggressive lines.
The interior utilises various luxury and top quality materials including 10 different types of exotic wood with traditional lacquering, seven different types of marble and mother of pearl, onyx and rare soft furnishings such as ray skin leather. The Mangusta 165E is capable of reaching 40–knots, making it the fastest in the series so far.
