Designed by Alberto Mancini and launched in April, the Mangusta 42 represents Overmarine‘s continued commitment to performance and unparalleled comfort. Among the amenities is a bow swimming pool with an infinity-effect waterfall, with two separate sunpads that dip down towards the waterline.  The glazed bottom of the pool forms the skylight to the Master suite below for optimal illumination that adds a beautiful dappled effect to the interior.

Appearance-wise, floor-to-ceiling windows run the length of the port and starboard sides to create a fluid appearance on both the main deck and the upper deck. As a result, the main salon and skylounge both receive plenty of natural light during the day and guests have uninterrupted views of their destination.

The Mangusta 42 has a range of 4,500 nautical miles when cruising at 11 knots and she has reduced noise and vibrations for a quiet night’s rest for all guests.

ELSEA is part of the Fuoriserie line of superyachts, and features a sleek white exterior with the power to reach up to 30 knots.

“The engineering of this unique vessel has above all focused on guaranteeing unrivalled static and dynamic stability, a target not easily attained in a yacht like Ilumen, with its high and extended superstructures. This goal has been reached thanks to the correct, well-balanced choice of materials, hull shape and weight distribution,” commented Chief Engineer, Andrea Agrusta. “These are the product of an in-depth study and analysis of weights, optimized with enhanced prediction methods. The outcome is that we have developed a highly advanced structural layout, with extensive use of epoxy resin, carbon fiber, sandwich and vacuum infusion technology. These were further optimized using FEM Technology to improve structural strength without increasing the weight.“
