The third unit in Mangusta's Oceano 50 series has hit the water at the Overmarine facilities in Pisa. Known only as Project Salerno, the 50-metre model is the flagship of Mangusta's steel and aluminium full-displacement Oceano series, marking a departure from Mangusta's traditionally sporty maxi open yachts.
Alberto Mancini was tasked with designing the line inside and out, and has focused on making the most out of the 499GT and optimising the connection between indoor and outdoor spaces. To this end, the 52-square-metre master cabin on the main deck forward benefits from a fully-automated balcony that creates a floating over-the-water terrace.
A similar design is seen in the beach club, where there are three doors that fold out to create an open waterfront lounge area. Elsewhere, Project Salerno has a dip pool on the sundeck and a second six-metre by 2.6-metre pool with counterflow on the aft deck, which can be accessed when the tender is launched.
Alongside the owner's suite, the yacht has a further five guest cabins including a full-beam VIP cabin with private access.
"Both interior and exterior furniture and furnishings have been designed by our interior design team to become a bespoke garment that will perfectly fit the owner's wishes and requests", said Mangusta sales manager Nicolò Strocco, who secured the sale of this yacht.
Project Salerno is a collaboration between the shipyard and P.L.A.N.A. Design of engineer Ausonio. She is equipped with two 1,700hp MTU 12V 2000 M86 engines that allow her to reach a speed of 16 knots and ensure a range of up to 4,500 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 11 knots.
Six more vessels in the Mangusta Oceano series are currently under construction at the Pisa shipyard, including a new Oceano 44 that is set to debut at the Monaco Yacht Show 2023.
The next units for sale are a Mangusta Oceano 44 and a Mangusta Oceano 50, ready for delivery in the summer of 2025 and in the summer of 2026 respectively.
