The brief called for an ergonomic layout balanced with supreme attention to detail and the highest possible levels of comfort on board. This was achieved by placing a strong emphasis on noise attenuation as well as carefully delineating between the owner’s suite, guest areas and the crew quarters.
Accommodation is for up to 12 guests split across six staterooms and 499GT of internal space, while a staff of nine people ensure that every whim is catered for.
Power comes from a pair of 1,528hp MTU 12V2000 M72 diesel engines for a top speed of 15 knots. When trimmed back to ten knots, the Mangusta Oceano 46 will be capable of a transatlantic cruising range of 4,000 nautical miles, drawing on a total fuel capacity of 70,000 litres.
Further details are being kept under wraps for now, but it is understood that the Mangusta Oceano 46 yacht features a nine metre beam and a maximum draught of 2.35 metres.
Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the yard’s new flagship and first fast displacement yacht, the Mangusta Gransport 54, which is due to hit the water before the end of the year.
