by Raphael Montigneaux
Launched on January 10th, the 6th hull of the Mangusta 165 series is the latest yacht built by the Italian shipyard Overmarine. The large 49.9m Open series is designed by Stefano Righini with an interior styled by the in-house technical and décor department.
On the technical side, the Mangusta 165 hull 6 is powered by three MTU 16V4000 M93L engines of 3,440kW each. Equipped with new impellers, the KaMeWa waterjets allow a wider range of 600 nautical miles at cruising speed, while her top speed still exceeds 40 knots, making the Mangusta 165 the fastest Open of this size on the market.
