Mangusta 165 yacht begins Burgess Marine refit
by Chris Jefferies
A 49.9 metre Overmarine superyacht has begun a six-week refit at British yard Burgess Marine.
CEO Nicholas Warren explained that the scope of the work includes “main engine and water jet overhauls plus a small seasonal refit”.
Built to AB classification and launched in 2007, this fast planing GRP yacht is part of the Overmarine Mangusta 165 series. Her triple MTU 16V4000 M93 diesel engine set-up allows for a sporty top speed of 40 knots as well as fast cruising at 36 knots.
Styled inside and out by Stefano Righini, she features accommodation for ten guests and a crew of eight, while the 9.2 metre beam allows for a total interior volume of 488GT.
Key features include a large open superyacht sundeck, a foredeck seating area and sprawling aft deck, with separate areas for dining and lounging.
Ray Cutts, technical director at Burgess Marine, added: “This superyacht refit project is very important to the team at Burgess Marine; with both Portchester and Lowestoft capable of supporting such works, it’s important that we continue to develop our presence in the yachting sector.”
The news comes less than six months after Burgess Marine expanded its operations with the acquisition of Exeter-based Global Services and its sister company Global New Builds for an undisclosed sum. The refit specialist currently has nine locations across Europe, including Dover, Portsmouth, Southampton, Poole, Avonmouth, Devonport, and Palma, Mallorca.
