Overmarine Sells 12th Mangusta 165
Published: Friday, 12 February 2016
Overmarine Mangusta continues an impressive track record with its recent sale of the 12th unit of the Mangusta 165 series. This fast and unique 50-metre yacht has become a clear reference point for the market.
“Over the past few years we have established ourselves more and more as a leader in our sector, namely that of large, open semi-custom yachts,” says Group Commercial Director Francesco Frediani. “Our clients tell us this, as they continue to choose our models, as does the market which values our professionalism and understands our quality and the technical choices we make, acknowledging us a leader. The excellent reputation we enjoy today also tells us this, the same reputation the Balducci family, sole owner of the Overmarine Group, has been building up over the years. Mangusta 165 has undoubtedly contributed to this result, turning the Mangusta brand into an out and out icon.”
Mangusta 165 hull number 12 Evolution contains all recent style and technical innovations featuring aggressive lines, a single window at the height of the saloon offering excellent natural light, and a longer flybridge with an aesthetic grill astern.
The propulsion package provides for 4x2600 HP MTU 16V2000 M94 engines, four Rolls Royce/Kamewa NP waterjets and four Seakeeper stabilisers.
The performance is similar to that of the past, but consumption is considerably lower. The effectiveness of the stabilisation system is so great during cruising that the yacht can be used in displacement mode at a minimum speed of eight to 10 knots and in total comfort at all times. This greatly expands the range of speeds at which she can be used.
There is also a range of new technological gadgets onboard including the dynamic positioning, which makes it possible to keep the yacht still in a selected GPS position without dropping anchor. This is achieved by acting on the effect of the tide, the wind and the current simply by combining direction and propulsion. The interiors, as on all Mangusta yachts, are custom-built and the group’s Artistic Office has already set to work with the owner to decide the layout, furnishings and décor.
The yacht will be ready in 2017 and delivered to her owner in Europe.
