The Overmarine Group has launched two yachts in just over a week’s time.
First to splash was Hull No. 2 of the Mangusta Gransport 33, which is destined for an American owner. (Hull No. 1 also went to an American; it’s based in Florida.) Hull No. 2 is different from Hull No. 1 because the newer boat has an open sundeck. The owners intend to use the yacht for open-air cruising in the Bahamas.
The Gransport 33 has four 1,000-horsepower Volvo Penta D13 engines coupled to pods, which the builder says provide a maximum speed of 25 knots. Design is by Alberto Mancini.
Second to splash was Hull No. 14 of the Mangusta 165, the fifth in that line’s “E” series. It’s bound for a European owner, who plans to offer the yacht for charter through L’Echo Nautique.
The Mangusta 165E can reach a maximum speed of 37 knots, according to the builder, thanks to four MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines and four Kamewa water jets. There also are four Seakeeper stabilizers on board for guest comfort.
This particular Mangusta 165 has an unusual layout, with six staterooms plus an extra cabin that can be used for massage and beauty treatments.
When is delivery expected? Sometime within the summer.
