First Mangusta Oceano 50 superyacht launched

10 June 2021By Miranda Blazeby

The first hull in Overmarine's Mangusta Oceano 50 series has been launched after hitting the water for the first time on June 5. 

The 50 metre, sub-500GT yacht was sold to a European owner represented by Moran after construction on the yacht began in early 2019. The yacht is due for delivery by the end of July 2021 while two more units are already under construction. The third unit named Project Salerno is scheduled for a spring 2023 delivery. 

Speaking about the launch, Overmarine Group's chief executive Maurizio Balducci said: “This is launch number ten for Overmarine Group's metal vessels division - a truly outstanding accomplishment when one considers that the first unit hit the water only five years ago."

The Mangusta Oceano 50 was designed by Alberto Mancini in collaboration with the yard’s in-house technical department. It features a bulbous steel hull with 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 to become 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. Accommodation onboard is for either 10 or 12 guests, depending on the layout configuration chosen by the owner.

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.
