Overmarine Group announces sale of 12th Mangusta 165 Superyacht

February 09, 2016

Written by zuzana

Today, February 9, 2016 saw Overmarine Mangusta proudly announce the sale of the 12th Mangusta 165 superyacht. She is a fast, highly unique and comfortable 50-metre vessel, due to be delivered to her European Owner in 2017.

Mangusta 165 E underway

Francesco Frediani, Group Commercial Director, said: “Over the past few years we have established ourselves more and more as a leader in our sector, namely that of large, open semi-custom yachts. Our Clients tell us this, as they continue to choose our models, as does the market which values our professionalism and understands our quality and the technical choices we make, acknowledging us a leader. The excellent reputation we enjoy today also tells us this, the same reputation the Balducci family, sole owner of the Overmarine Group, has been building up over the years. Mangusta 165 has undoubtedly contributed to this result, turning the Mangusta brand into an out and out icon.”

Mangusta 165 E hull number 12, in which E stands for Evolution, boasts all recent style and technical innovations. She has more muscular, aggressive lines, a single window at the height of the salon which provides fantastic visibility from the inside letting in plenty of natural light, as well as a longer flybridge with an aesthetic grill astern which gives the yacht an even greater dynamic boost.

The vessel offers a better performance and greater yield, thanks to propulsion package which provides for 4×2600 HP MTU 16V2000 M94 engines, 4 Rolls Royce/Kamewa NP waterjets and 4 Seakeeper stabilisers, resulting in a better weight/power ratio, modular functionality on demand, optimised spaces in the engine room and greater efficiency. The performance is similar to that of the past, but consumption is notably lower. The effectiveness of the stabilisation system is so great during cruising too that the yacht can be used in displacement mode at a minimum speed of 8-10 knots and in total comfort at all times. This significantly expands the range of speeds at which she can be used.

Mangusta 165 E also hosts a range of new technological gadgets onboard like the dynamic positioning, which makes it possible to keep the yacht still in a selected GPS position without dropping anchor. This is achieved by acting on the effect of the tide, the wind and the current simply by combining direction and propulsion.

Pininfarina and Fincantieri on NEW 85m Superyacht Concept OTTANTACINQUE

February 09, 2016

Written by zuzana

Following the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show we have published an article about the new 85m superyacht concept OTTANTACINQUE, which was unveiled at the show by the prestigious Italian shipyard Fincantieri and renowned design studio Pininfarina. Today, we are publishing a short interview with Mr Paolo Pininfarina, Chairman of Pininfarina – Italian Design and Engineering Company, and Mr Marco Mazzù, Head of Origination Strategies and Market Development of Fincantieri, to learn more about this exciting concept.

Ottantacinque by Pininfarina and Fincantieri

Ottantacinque by Pininfarina and Fincantieri

CharterWorld: What brought Pininfarina and Fincantieri Yachts to the decision to collaborate together on this exciting new concept?

Mr Pininfarina: We have a very established partnership with the Fincantieri team. Our first project was the Destriero, in the early nineties: this vessel won the transatlantic “Blue Ribbon” award and became very popular at that time.

After several years Fincantieri and us discovered to have the same objective: to design and build together a super yacht in the range of 85 meters. Fincantieri has a very strong experience in bigger boats, recently we designed a number of smaller boats; so we found the perfect meeting point.

CharterWorld: The concept was launched at the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show. Have you had any feedback since the event and interests from potential customers?

Mr Mazzù: We cannot disclose current client discussion. However, we can confirm that the design and the collaboration raised a great interest among brokers and potential clients. There has been an unanimous appreciation on the style and on some of the innovative features and solutions included in the design.

CharterWorld: In your opinion, what makes the new OTTANTACINQUE different from other mega yacht concepts currently on the market?

Mr Pininfarina: The movement of the dockhouse volume from the bow to the stern of the boat has made its design very different from other designs in the same class.

CharterWorld: What type of Owner is the new 85-metre mega yacht concept suitable for?

Mr Pininfarina: The end user will have to be a fan of innovative design. Since most of the buyers in this market are still quite conservative the customer will probably be younger than the average, “a special owner of a special boat”.

CharterWorld: How suitable would this yacht be, should the new owner decide to enter the yacht charter market?

Mr Pininfarina: The boat has been conceived to be functional and user friendly, so it will eventually be perfect for the yacht charter market, too.

CharterWorld: Which main features would most likely appeal to a discerning yacht charterer?

Mr Mazzù: We have two different GA (general arrangement) configurations to suit slightly different expected lifestyles onboard. In common, as most relevant features for yacht charterer, they have the twin pools, which grant an enormous flexibility in the utilization of the main deck space aft, the ample beach club to grant a seamless experience with the sea, and different areas of aggregation for family and friends.

CharterWorld: How long would it take before the yacht could be delivered to her new owner?

Mr Mazzù: We expect we can deliver the current configuration in 39 months.

CharterWorld: Are you currently working on any other new superyacht concepts that you could share with our readers?

Mr Pininfarina: We are presently focused on the promotion of the Ottantacinque.

Construction of New Moonen Superyacht MARTINIQUE well underway

February 09, 2016

Written by zuzana

Dutch builder, Moonen Yachts, has released a great video below, showing the new 37-metre superyacht MARTINIQUE taking shape. Destined for cruising the world in warm and exotic climates, this exciting new vessel is named after an island in the Caribbean, and is expected to be completed just in time for the 2017 season.

The hull is built of high tensile steel which – mixed up with a smart hull design and Moonen’s ‘enhanced length principle’ (ELP) – provides a cool turn of speed, remarkable fuel savings and plenty of comfort. The innovative use of high tensile steel also ensures that MARTINIQUE is lightweight, which increases speed further and notably reduces draft. This in turn makes the yacht perfect for cruising in the Caribbean, especially in shallow drafts places like the Bahamas.
