The management company IYC proudly describes its charter fleet as having more Mangustas than any other, with the yachts ranging in size from 92 to nearly 150 feet length overall. Charter manager Monisha Issac in Monaco personally oversees several of them, including the 131-foot Beachouse, which recently returned to the IYC fleet.
“It has always stood out among the other Mangusta 130s because of its layout, its selection of water toys and the standards of its crew on board,” Issac says. “It’s very strong—one of the best Mangusta 130s on the market.”
The yacht, which is accepting inquiries for the Caribbean and Bahamas this winter, has numerous repeat clients, several of whom have returned four or five times. In some cases, the clients will not even consider any other brand of yacht for charter, Issac says.
“Some will only charter a Mangusta,” she says. “They love the sleek lines, the speed—so many things. I have one client doing a one-month charter on a Mangusta. Some clients will change their destination just to get a Mangusta.”
The Italian builder currently offers the 104 REV, 165 REV and 132E in its Maxi Open line, in addition to two additional lines of yachts: the Gransport line, from 109 to 177 feet long; and the Oceano line, from 128 to 196 feet length overall. But it’s the Mangusta 130 that tends to populate the charter market—and with Beachouse, there’s an unusually long list of tenders and water toys.
Charter clients have access to a 33-foot Scorpion, Sea-Doo Sparks, Seabobs, an electric foiling board, paddleboards, tow toys and floats. Fitness enthusiasts will find a surprising list of onboard equipment too, including a boxing bag, a speed ball, dumbbells, kettlebells and a suspension training kit.
And, when it’s time to relax, the yacht has Starlink unlimited satellite internet. That’s a feature Issac says she’s seeing aboard an increasing number of charter yachts in the IYC fleet: “If you’re in the middle of nowhere, it’s really useful.”
Easy Water Access
Port and starboard staircases with railings lead down to the swim platform from the aft deck, making it easy for charter guests to use the yacht’s extensive list of water toys.
The Mangusta Story
When Mangusta premiered its 80-footer in 1985, it was a revelation. Until that time, open yachts had been smaller. The 80 became the basis for the Maxi Open line that is still in production today.
