Putting the new high-performance Mangusta 110 superyacht to the test

After making its world premiere at the Miami Yacht & Brokerage boat show earlier this month, the Overmarine Mangusta 110 superyacht is now putting her performance to the test in the waters off Miami. Over in Boat International Media's US office, ShowBoats International magazine's Senior Editor Cecile Gauert sea trialed the sporty superyacht and reports below on the new yacht's handling on the high seas.

Engage the clutch, and the Mangusta 110 mega yacht already goes five to six knots – and during the sea trial we reached a top speed of 36.3 knots. Overmarine had previously quoted the top speed of Mangusta 110 at 33 knots, so the yacht has outdone herself. The Mangusta 110 is most fuel efficient at 20 knots, her ideal cruising speed. She is the first Mangusta to have the Seakeeper Gyro, adding to her stability at all speeds, and she is able to make sharp turns at 28 knots.

The new Mangusta 110 was built on spec, specifically intended for the US market, and she was under development for about one year before construction began. Ironically, she was sold to a client in Europe after she was shipped for her debut in Miami and is due to return to the Med for the 2014 yachting season. However, bringing this model to the United States has proven a good idea for the Overmarine Group. The Italian builder has organized sea trials non-stop since the Miami show for potential clients who visited her on Collins Avenue.

A thorough redesign of the Mangusta 108, her hull was extended at stern about two feet. The transom accommodates a garage for personal watercraft (which on the original 108 were carried on the aft deck). This change allowed to create a wider seating area on the aft deck and gave room for a Jacuzzi. The superstructure was redesigned and the forward deck now accommodates a salon, plus the addition of a sunpad. The flybridge accommodates a second helm station, which raises to allow the captain to drive standing up.

Hull No 2 is already under construction and should launch in November 2014.
