Overmarine announces sale of 12th Mangusta 165 superyacht
by Simon Hardie
The 49.9 metre Mangusta 165 E features the latest style and technical innovations of the Evolution series. Delivery of the 12th hull will be in 2017.
“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,” said Overmarine Group's commercial director Francesco Frediani.
“The Mangusta 165 has undoubtedly contributed to this result, turning the Mangusta brand into an out and out icon.”
The owner has already entered into consultation with the Overmarine Group’s artistic office to decide on the interior layout, furnishings and décor.
The latest model in the series has a range of new gadgets on board, including dynamic positioning and four Seakeeper stabilisers that allow the yacht to be comfortable even at low speeds of 8-10 knots.
The Mangusta 165 is fitted with four 2600 horsepower MTU 16V2000 M94 engines and four Rolls Royce/Kamewa NP waterjets, which combine to power the yacht to a top speed of more than 40 knots.
Despite this impressive performance, the Mangusta 165 E is incredibly efficient, offering considerably lower fuel consumption than its predecessor, the Mangusta 165 — the first of which was launched in 2007 as Salvaje (now Force India).
This new sale further strengthens an already impressive order book, which includes another Mangusta 165 E, the 11th hull, which was sold just last November.
Overmarine unveiled two new models at the Monaco Yacht Show in 2015: the Oceano 55 and the Grand Sports 48. It also launched its first high-performance Mangusta 132 last year.
