Second Mangusta 132 yacht launched by Overmarine
by Chris Jefferies
Italian yard Overmarine has launched the second hull in its Mangusta 132 series of 40 metre yachts. Splashed in Viareggio yesterday (February 14), this fast planing yacht was built from a GRP hull and superstructure to an in-house design.
The exterior profile is classic Mangusta, with sporty lines and timeless touches, but the yard adds that the latest glazing technology has been employed, with a single pane of glass fitted either side of the saloon for excellent views out to sea.
Accommodation is for eight guests, split between four cabins including an owner's cabin, two doubles and a twin, while the crew quarters allow for a staff of up to five people. No further interior details have been released so far, but the yard adds that the owner worked closely with the in-house design team to customise the yacht to his exact specifications. Key features include a spacious superyacht sundeck, which has been designed as a private area for the owner and his guests to enjoy while zipping along at high speeds.
Performance is key to the Mangusta 132's charms, with a triple MTU diesel engine set up allowing for a top speed of 34 knots. When trimmed back to her fast-cruising speed of 32 knots, a maximum cruising range of 450 nautical miles is possible, allowing for extended coastal cruises at high speeds.
Other projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the flagship Mangusta Gransport 54, which is due to hit the water next year.
