Overmarine begins construction on first Mangusta Oceano 50
by Miranda Blazeby
Overmarine has begun construction on a new model in its line of long-range displacement yachts.
The 50 metre, sub-500GT yacht will feature a bulbous steel hull and will sport exterior lines encapsulating its “strong, powerful and sleek personality”, Mancini said.
Key exterior features include two cockpits, fore and aft. The tender garage has been moved to the bow, leaving the stern dedicated to a spacious beach club.
Sitting below the forward cockpit, the garage can accommodate a six metre tender and two Jet Skis. With the toys and tenders launched, the garage basin can fill with water, becoming a swimming pool.
The yacht’s second swimming pool and Jacuzzi are located on the sun deck, alongside a 12-seater dining table for alfresco entertaining.
The interior styling, also by Mancini, features ceiling-high windows in the main deck saloon and is decorated in a “harmonious blend of elegant and soft, light colours.”
Materials include linen and silk in light blue and turquoise alongside white marble and sand-coloured oak.
Power will come from two MTU 12V 2000 M86 engines for a top speed of 16 knots. The yacht will have a range of 4,000 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 11 knots.
The first hull in the new series is already underway and scheduled for 2020 completion.
