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.

She was an innovation for CCN and marked a new era in offering customised luxury yachts to owners interested in performance and interiors that more closely reflected their personality and requirements.

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 large foredeck is designed for entertaining and the owner requested a top of the line sound system to rival any nightclub’s. The interiors blend art deco with modern trends to create sophisticated lounges for guest relaxation. There are 6 large guest cabins aboard, one of which is a full-beam Master suite.

Built for a Mexican owner, motor yacht ANDIAMO features over 350m² of living spaces from interior and exterior designer Francesco Paszkowski Design, who worked in conjunction with architect Margherita Casprini to create an interior and exterior layout in line with the owner’s vision.

The opulent and contemporary living areas use onyx and lacquered ebony, while a central winding staircase connecting the three decks is made of leather and steel. Among her amenities is a cinema room located on the upper deck that opens out onto two side terraces. As well as alfresco dining on the upper deck aft, the sundeck features an infinity pool with waterfall, an alternative alfresco dining area, a barbeque, grill and bar for refreshments while sunbathing forward of the sundeck.

Superyacht ANDIAMO represents a marked progression for Baglietto on the previous 46m/150ft model on which she is based, increasing visibility from the bridge deck helm through ‘reverse’ glazing and also moving the tender garage forward of the beach club for greater guest living space when in use.

M/Y ANDIAMO will be cruising the Mediterranean this summer before making her public debut in September at the Cannes and Monaco yacht shows.
