First pictures: Mangusta Gransport 54 takes shape at Overmarine

The Mangusta Gransport 54 superyacht is taking shape at Overmarine's Pisa facility, as these first in-build pictures reveal. Measuring 54 metres, the Gransport 54 will become the flagship of the Italian yard’s fleet when it is delivered in 2018.

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.

Francesco Frediani, group commercial director at Overmarine, said: “This successful sale confirms that we’re even able to aspire to playing a leading role in a segment that’s completely new to us.”

Built from aluminium, the Gransport 54 features a shallow draught of around 2.5 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 superyacht spa pool features an infinity effect.

The racy profile of this yacht was created by Italian designer Alberto Mancini and reflects the yacht’s sporty performance. Power comes from four 2,600hp MTU 16V 2000 M94 engines, which deliver a top speed of 30 knots and maximum cruising range of 3,800 nautical miles.

Other projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the second hull in the Mangusta Oceano 42 series, which was launched last month and is due for delivery this summer.
