Overmarine Group announces sale of two Maxi Open yachts

March 26, 2015

The Overmarine Group is thrilled to announce the sale of two Maxi Open yachts to the American market. The first is Mangusta 165 motor yacht Hull no. 10, the current flagship of the Mangusta fleet and the third in the series sold to this important market over the past 3 years. The second is Mangusta 94 motor yacht Hull no. 4, a new model recently introduced in Europe, where the first two units were delivered.

Mangusta is a world leader in the segment of Maxi Open Yachts, fast large vessels on which to reach a range of destinations quickly whilst enjoying exclusive comfort. This type of yacht is ideal for North America in general, for Florida, where the distance between one destination and another is relatively short hence easy and quick to reach due to the high cruising speed, and for the Hamptons, a resort our reference Clients love, where our yachts’ ability to sail in shallow waters, thanks to hydro-jet propulsion, is essential.

For the Overmarine Group, this prestigious result has been achieved through intense strategic planning and investments which involved the entire company, focusing on developing the product but also strengthening production, distribution and their HR.

As far as the product is concerned, greater attention was paid to increasing onboard comfort, especially with the yacht at anchor and/or moored, as well as greater efficiency, or better, maintaining a high performance with increasingly lower consumption, and to the ways in which the yacht can be used and therefore the different functional and operational requirements of North American Clients. These factors have made Mangusta yachts especially welcome and well-appreciated in this area.

The structural strengthening was important too: the presence, in Miami, of an Americas Area Manager, Stefano Arlunno, who interacts with Clients and leading figures on the market and has in-depth experience in After Sales, too, has enabled the company to manage this market directly. This guarantees the necessary assistance for achieving these results.

“These investments have now started to bear fruit,” proudly declared Francesco Frediani, Group Commercial Director. “The sale of these 2 Maxi Open yachts confirms that American clients appreciate the technical engineering characteristics and functional setup of our yachts. We can say that, even in the States, the Mangusta brand is increasingly more associated with products of a high technical content and exceptional onboard comfort, able to arouse those feelings only top, renowned Italian brands arouse.”

The yachts that have been sold are: Mangusta 165#10 and Mangusta 94#04.

Superyacht Mangusta 165 is one of the top models in the Maxi Open series and the fastest yacht in her category in the world to date: a 50 metre flagship which, depending on the engines chosen, can even reach a speed of 40 knots! An out and out reference icon on the world panorama with 9 units delivered in less than 7 years.

Hull no. 10 is characterised by the new “evo” aesthetics and propulsion system. Within the sphere of continuous research and innovation, the shipyard introduced this system in order to guarantee quality, excellence and wellbeing on board, with fresh attention being paid to consumption and stability.

The new “evo” aesthetics are expressed in more aggressive, muscular lines and new glazing on the main deck, a single pane of glass in the salon which offers excellent visibility from the inside and allows copious amounts of natural light to enter. The yacht features a more elongated flybridge and an aesthetic grill astern resulting in greater dynamic thrust.

The propulsion packet provides for 4 MTU 16V2000M94 2600 HP engines, 4 Rolls Royce/KameWa NP water-jets and 4 Seakeeper stabilisers. The weight/power ratio is excellent, as the engines are lighter than those used previously so there is less weight in movement. Being last generation, they are also more efficient and have modular functionality. The hydro-jets are stronger too, as they feature renewed design to offer a better performance at lower consumption. The result is that her performance is similar to that which was achieved in the past, but consumption is much lower: 35% lower at 20 and 30 knots. The space in the machine room has been optimised and 4 stabilisers installed for greater stability at anchor and during sailing: 50% less rolling with half metre waves. Moreover, she features increased efficiency so sailing is extremely comfortable even at low speeds.

Mangusta 94 yacht was the very first new model to be introduced on the market two years ago. Her external lines are the distinctive racy, sporty Mangusta ones, defined by many as a timeless contemporary design.

Both aesthetic and structural innovations have been added, like the single glazing, even larger outdoor areas, a bow cockpit in addition to the sunbathing area and a liveable sundeck.

Measuring just under 30 metres in length, the size of this yacht is real, something which is clear in the spacious onboard volumes.

She also features technical innovations: 2600 HP engines supplied as standard, the same propulsion as on larger models and installation of gyroscopic stabilisers.

This sales success derives from the seriousness and solidity of the Balducci family, which has been building yachts for over 30 years, and the ability of the Overmarine Group team to anticipate market demand, creating quality products which correspond perfectly to our Owners’ wishes.

Today’s clients want the layout of a home on-board their yachts, they want space and light, but also a high performance, giving the word a new meaning: not only energy and stability, but most importantly comfort and efficiency, at all speeds.

This is exactly what the Group has focused on in its work over the past three years,: process control, the type of composite structures used, cutting-edge processing, soundproofing, vibration control, and ergonomic layouts. Everything has been studied in painstaking detail in order to guarantee quality, excellence and well-being on board. The Group has also worked on propulsion systems which satisfy various demands in terms of both speed and comfort, paying greater attention to consumption and stabilisation in order to increase both range and efficiency.

The new Mangusta 165 no. 9 is the very latest example of this evolution and of the perfect combination of comfort and speed.

There are a number of important technological innovations on this yacht as well as improvements in performance, including a new propulsion system with 4 MTU 16V 2000 M94 2600hp engines, 4 Rolls Royce/Kamewa NP (new pump) waterjets and 4 Seakeeper stabilisers. This driving system has an excellent weight/power ratio, as the engines are lighter than the previous ones and so there is less weight in movement when the yacht is at sea. These last generation engines are also more efficient and have a modular functionality. The waterjets are also stronger as the design has been renewed in order to offer a better performance at lower consumption. The result is that this yacht can reach similar speeds as in the past but consumes less: 35% less at 20 and 30 knots.The optimised layout in the engine room has provided the space to install 4 stabilisers for improving stabilisation when the yacht is both at anchor and under way: 50% less rolling with half metre waves. Efficiency has also been improved meaning sailing is very comfortable at low speeds, too.

Each and every owner can really decide whether to sail at high speeds or 20/30 knots with good drive efficiency and greater efficiency of consumption, without however, ever having to renounce to being comfortable on-board.

The Pumpkin yacht is proof of the shipyard’s continuous evolution, but also of its ability to understand the market and anticipate client demand.

Greater opportunities for this successful model, which can now also be proposed in an “E” (evo/evolution) version with a number of external aesthetic features.

New Overmarine super yacht MANGUSTA 110 fitted with Seakeeper gyro as option

April 17, 2014

The recent debut of the brand new Overmarine super yacht Mangusta 110 marks the first time the prestigious Italian shipyard has presented a worldwide premiere of a new model in the USA. To offer maximum comfort as well as stability aboard the luxury motor yacht Mangusta 110, Overmarine has chosen Seakeeper gyro stabilization systems.

Seakeeper has previously worked with Overmarine Group on highly successful gyro refit projects on a Mangusta 105 (examle is charter yacht Storm 1) and Mangusta 165 (example can be charter yacht Zeus). “Gyro stabilization radically improves the onboard experience,” said Nicola Onori, Overmarine Group chief engineer. “The 110 represents a new generation of Mangusta vessels, for which the term performance refers not only to dynamism, but to overall stability and comfort.”

With a beam of 23.56′, maximum draft of 5.58′ and displacement of 130 tons, the versatile Mangusta 110 yacht exudes opulence and sportiness in equal measure. Powered by two MTU 16V 2000M94 2,600 hp engines and twin Kamewa waterjets, the 110 has a range of 350 nm at cruising speed.

Actively controlled Seakeeper gyro stabilization systems reduce resonant boat roll by up to 90%, greatly enhancing comfort and safety for all aboard. Compact, energy-efficient and virtually silent, the Seakeeper gyro is housed internally, with no drag-producing external appendages.

There are a number of new aesthetic-structural features, fruit of the Owner’s requests which the shipyard’s design department has interpreted perfectly and integrated into the yacht: a new side window, a large single panel of glass by the main salon, providing excellent visibility from the inside and letting in even more natural light. Moreover, alterations have been made to the flybridge, the superstructure of which has been redesigned in order to house a large U-shaped divan, where a grill gives this yacht more modern, aggressive lines. In addition, there is a ‘top’ performance, where the word “performance” not only describes their dynamism and stability, but is also quality, excellence and wellbeing onboard.

The Mangusta 165 E yacht is also unique because of the wealth and quantity of the materials used onboard: valuable materials, lacquering and chromaticism, more than 10 different kinds of woods, at least 7 different kinds of marble, lots of precious leathers, like ray leather, and much more, glass, mother of pearl, onyx,..

The 40-metre Maxi Open superyacht Mangusta 130 Hull #18 stands out for her racy, decisive lines, her performance, 38 knots at top speed, excellent seaworthiness and lack of vibrations and noise which is such a classic on Mangusta yachts.

Since 2007, when Mangusta 165 yacht was first presented, this model has lent herself to becoming an icon and reference point on the world panorama: 8 units already in the water, with a ninth shortly to follow in fewer than 6 years tell of just how extraordinary and unique this Maxi Open is. Indeed, she is the pride of a Group which has known how to look forward and invest well over the past few years.

Measuring 50 metres in length, superyacht Mangusta 165 is able to reach a speed of 40 knots making her the fastest composite Maxi Open Yacht ever to be built. She knows no rivals in terms of comfort, either: the volumes of the yacht can be compared to a three deck vessel of the same dimension, although this cannot be gleaned from the outside owing to her pure lines and sporty profile.

The extraordinary combination of linear stress and expression of line gives this model an elegant character which is simultaneously distinctive and powerful. She is a masterpiece of distinctive, elegant, timeless design, conveying balance and dynamism and offering at the same time extremely high levels of onboard comfort, safety and practicality. This particular yacht is, however, even more unique, insomuch as she has been called 165 E, where ‘E’ stands for “Evolution”.

There are a number of new aesthetic-structural features, fruit of the Owner’s requests which the shipyard’s design department has interpreted perfectly and integrated into the yacht: a new side window, a large single pane of glass by the main salon, providing excellent visibility from the inside and letting in even more natural light. Moreover, alterations have been made to the flybridge, the superstructure of which has been redesigned in order to house a large U-shaped divan, giving this yacht more modern, aggressive lines.

In addition, there is a ‘top’ performance, where the word “performance” not only describes their dynamism and stability, but is also extended to on-board comfort: process control, the type of composite structures used, soundproofing, vibration control, ergonomic layouts, everything has been studied in painstaking detail in order to guarantee quality, excellence and wellbeing onboard at high speeds.

However, the Mangusta 165 E yacht is also unique because of the wealth and quantity of the materials used onboard. Valuable materials, lacquering and chromaticism have been used between the main salon and guest area, and also externally: more than 10 different kinds of woods and lacquering, all of which unique and valuable, at least 7 different kinds of marble, including exquisite Blue Tiger Eye, lots of precious leathers, like ray leather, and much more, glass, mother of pearl, onyx,..
