Overmarine sells Mangusta 94 yacht to American owner
by Chris Jefferies
Built from a GRP hull and superstructure to an in-house design, this 28.72 metre fast planing yacht will boast a sporty top speed of 38 knots.
Francesco Frediani, commercial director at Overmarine, said: “American customers see in Mangusta yachts a functional set up and quality engineering technology beyond their sheer beauty.”
The yard adds that a key aspect of this appeal lies in the use of the Rolls-Royce KaMeWa waterjet propulsion system, which keeps the draft down to just 1.6 metres and allows Mangusta 94 owners to navigate shallow bays and remote anchorages.
Accommodation is for six guests split between three cabins, while the crew quarters allows for a staff of up to four people. No further details of the 135GT interiors have been released as yet, but the yard explains that it will be working closely with the owner to create bespoke solutions.
Al fresco relaxation options include a compact superyacht sundeck and a spacious aft deck, complete with sunpads and an adjacent dinette.
On-board comfort will be taken care of by a pair of gyroscopic stabilisers, which ensure a smooth cruising experience, both underway and at anchor. Power will come from a pair of 2,600hp MTU 16V2000 M96L engines for a fast cruising speed of 35 knots, while the total fuel capacity of 8,800 litres should allow for extended coastal cruises.
Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the flagship Mangusta Gransport 54, which is also due to hit the water next year.
