First Mangusta 165 REV hits the water in Italy

26 July 2022 • Written by Katia Damborsky

Mangusta, a brand of Overmarine Group, has welcomed a new flagship of the Mangusta Maxi Open REV line with the launch of the 50 metre Mangusta 165 REV.

The new model was launched yesterday (July 25) at the yard’s Viareggio facilities.

“I am proud to be celebrating the launch of this first unit of the Mangusta 165 REV together with her Owner, his family, and the whole team who took part in her construction. I am convinced that today, with this launch, we are writing a new important page in the history of our shipyard", said the Group's chief executive officer Maurizio Balducci.

Balducci continued by thanking all the parties who worked “tirelessly” to combat “delays caused by the challenging times we are currently going through".

The yacht has been built in composite, with design from the shipyard's Engineering Department, headed by engineer Nicola Onori, in collaboration with acclaimed studio Lobanov Design.

The Mangusta 165 REV builds on the success of the previous Mangusta 165, a bestselling model with 12 units delivered since 2007. However, the new model boasts a few key changes to the design and layout.

Most notably, the new model is equipped with a generous beach club tucked into the stern.  Concealed behind a door that opens like a convertible sports car, it has been conceived as a fully-equipped waterfront lounge overlooking the water.

Automotive-inspired elements continue on the exterior, where the yacht’s slender profile draws parallels to 1930s sporty cars. Her speedy silhouette conceals impressive volumes, including a 92 square metre full-beam owner’s suite on the main deck which is encased in floor-to-ceiling windows that offers panoramic views. The rest of the guest accommodation, which can be configured to include four or five cabins, sits on the lower deck.

The yacht began to take shape in August 2021

Large windows can also be found in the saloon, alongside fold-down balconies which create a smooth connection between indoor and outdoor areas. Elsewhere, the yacht is crowned by a huge sundeck with plenty of relaxation space, and there is a pair of pools to be found on this model - one on the sundeck and a second on the foredeck.

The Mangusta 165 REV is powered by four Rolls Royce 2600 HP engines coupled with four Kongsberg-Kamewa waterjets to push her to a maximum speed of 34 knots.

The first unit will make its debut at the Monaco Yacht Show. The next Mangusta 165 REV yacht available for sale will be ready for delivery in summer 2023.
