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.

Diego Michele Deprati, CEO of the yard, said: “Elsea was an important challenge for us as it opens up a new course. It is the first one-of-a-kind motor yacht that marks CCN’s debut in the world of bespoke projects — unique masterpieces that respond to the customers’ requirements for full customisation.”

Built from an aluminium semi-planing hull, Elsea is expected to have a maximum speed of 27 knots, as she is powered by three MTU 16V2000M94 engines. She will be cruising at a comfortable speed of 18 knots.
