Exclusive: 54m Overmarine flagship yacht El Leon launched

The Mangusta Gransport 54 superyacht has been launched at Overmarine's Pisa facility and named El Leon.

Splashed on April 28, this Alberto Mancini-designed yacht will officially become the Italian yard's flagship yacht upon delivery to her owner later this year.

Maurizio Balducci, CEO of Overmarine Group said: “In the automotive sector, GranSport is a synonym for high performance and optimal comfort. These principles have been the key starting point for the creation of the new line. We translated them and applied them to our business, giving life to a model that is an authentic combination of excellence between performance and autonomy.”

Overmarine first revealed the concept for the Gransport range at the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show, after which the yard set about carrying out tank tests and engineering studies. This led to the design being lengthened by six metres.

Built from aluminium, El Leon features a shallow draught of 2.3 metres, which is ideal for exploring Mediterranean islands or the shallow waters of the Bahamas, while the on-board stabilisation system delivers “extraordinary levels of comfort”, Overmarine adds.

Exterior spaces are plentiful, including a superyacht sundeck with distinct areas for al fresco dining and sheltered relaxation. On the foredeck, the Gransport 54’s infinity pool features a glass floor, allowing light to filter through into the master suite below.

The racy, aerodynamic profile of El Leon reflects her sporty performance - power comes from four 2,600hp MTU 16V 2000 M94 engines, which should deliver a top speed of around 30 knots and maximum cruising range of 3,500 nautical miles.

Other projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the Mangusta Gransport 45, which is due to hit the water next year.
