Mangusta 165E, no rivals!

The latest flagship of the Maxi Open Mangusta fleet,  has just made her world debut at the Monaco Yacht Show.

An EXTRAORDINARY and UNIQUE Maxi Open. This is the immediate perception one has when steps on board. A SOPHISTICATED world of fine materials, lacquering and colour pleasantly embraces the visitor revealing 10 different kinds of marble and considerable amounts of leather.

The natural light give the interiors WARMTH and GRANDEUR, allowing real BREATHTAKING views.


The yacht is the clear expression of a DECISIVE PERSONALITY that the shipyard, with its in-depth experience in building dreams, has been able to transform into reality and turn into what can only be described as a truly unique yacht.

[dropcap]M[/dropcap]easuring 50 metres in length and able to reach even a speed of 40 knots, depending by the featured engine power train, this yacht is a real masterpiece of distinctive design. An incredible combination of linear tautness and expressive lines, conveying both balance and energy. Her on-board volumes can be compared with a 3 deck yacht of the same size and she offers extraordinarily high levels of comfort, safety and practicality.

Compared with the other yachts in the series, this model is even more unique and characterized by new ‘evo’ aesthetics (evolution)so much so there is even talk of a new model, Mangusta 165 E.

Unique in character

M165E_navigation-4-e1412241906797The Owner, in fact, requested the Mangusta lines be interpreted in a more aggressive, “muscular” fashion. In perfect synergy with the designer Stefano Righini and the shipyard’s Design Department, a number of important aesthetic-structural issues were carried out. First and foremost, there is the new side window on the main deck, a unique pane of glass in the salon area which offers excellent visibility from the inside and allows copious amounts of natural light in.

“This is one of the very latest trends in yachting design”

Restyling of flybridge perimeter came next, creating a better flow with built-in deck furniture. The shape of the stern has become truly powerful and aggressive. The new structure has been lengthened by about a metre and a half making it possible to integrate the large divan and the steel handrail perfectly into the superstructure, creating an effect of lightness and sleekness. An attractive grill brings to mind the world of sports cars, giving this yacht further dynamic drive. The impact of the yacht viewed from the stern is truly remarkable.

The on-board volumes are highly impressive and the yacht offers a top performance too, giving this term a new meaning: not only energy and stability but above all comfort. Process control, the excellence of the composite structures used, soundproofing, vibration control and ergonomic layouts, everything has been studied in painstaking detail in order to guarantee quality, excellence and well-being on board at high speeds.


Like every other Mangusta, this yacht features entirely customized interiors. But here the level of personalization is even higher.This is not only true for the wealth and amount of materials to be found on board, but also for a number of truly innovative aesthetic solutions. The painstaking care taken over detail and the example of true sophistication on this yacht are difficult to find on-board a model of this size.

She really is a new starting point for Mangusta.

The high aesthetic impact of the ceiling in the salon is one example of innovative solution. Besides the height of the ceiling itself, it has a perfectly built in led bar lighting system rather than spotlights. Another one is the new console in the wheelhouse, where all themonitors relating to the navigation equipment have been integrated into a single crystal panel. When they are off, the crystal is dark, nothing is visible, resulting in greater aesthetic impact. It is highly functional, too, thanks to the touchscreen where user can select various preset modes or decide which device is to be displayed on each individual monitor. The electronic equipment is also much more complete than in previous versions.


Highly sophisticated interiors

Over 15 different kinds of wood, coloured veneers and lacquering have been used, all unique and very valuable, at least 10 different kinds of marble, amongst which the highly prestigious Blue Tiger Eye, considerable amounts of leather, including shagreen leather, as well as glass, mother-of-pearl, onyx….

Having crossed the threshold, eye’s attention is immediately caught by the great importance given to natural light. Five skylights over the dining room table and the new side window, a large single pane of glass, brings copious amounts of light indoors, but also guarantees a breathtaking view and increased perception of space. Guests can enjoy an uninterrupted dialogue with the great outdoors.


The ceilings, featuring an innovative led bar lighting system, are mother-of-pearl white lacquering; the elegant wooden parquet is made of smoked oak painted custom grey and the side walls are white leather. The furniture is all customized and lacquered night blue and black matched with custom-finished pama wood, whilst the lunch table is rosewood which has been painted.


At the entrance, there are two large cupboards clad in night blue painted glass framed in chrome that conceal perfectly organized storage and a professional cigar humidor. To the right there is an unusual day toilet, with a Blue Tiger Eye marble floor, walls clad in polished lacquered panels in an impressive 3 different colours and surfaces and ceiling in mirrored highly-polished steel.


This environment is strongly characterized by the bar along the portside bulkhead. Measuring 4 metres in length, with ebony sides, it has a Blue Tiger Eye marble top, a highly prestigious material produced using a collage of rare stones from all over the world.

Entertainment is built into the décor. Behind the bar there is a wall unit with a shelf holding fine liqueurs. Said shelf can lift up ensuring everything is to hand when needed but will not interfere with the light coming from the cabinet when not in use. There is a retractable TV on the ceiling near the counter.

The bespoke divans are clad in grey leather and have silver white marble armrests. Opposite, a major feature is the coffee table in night blue polished lacquered smoked oak and surface in customized blue-grey coloured stingray leather.

Towards bow there are two extraordinary made-to-measure lit wine cabinets, both in steel and crystal, able to hold about 100 bottles of wine.


Separate from this, at bow, there is the helm station, with a custom glass bridge and a console dressed in attractive grey leather and carbon fiber. At the heart of this console are the controls for the latest-generation Rolls-Royce / Kamewa waterjets and MTU engines that give this thoroughly equipped yacht her speed and maneuverability.

A central stairway leads down to the lower deck and guest area. The full-beam master suite lies astern where the colour of the lacquered ceilings is mother-of-pearl white with custom-finished pama wood inserts. The flooring is smoked oak parquet painted grey, the wall panels grey leather with white mother-of-pearl inserts. The panels of the wardrobes are his ‘n’ hers – grey damask leather for the gentleman and grey backpainted glass with a steel frame for the lady. The headboard has been produced in gilded fabric surmounted in a white lacquered frame and chromed steel netting, the front of the drawers in the bedside tables have been clad in white onyx.


 The walls in the spacious Owner head have been built in white mother-of-pearl mosaics with grey de Savoy marble wainscoting and a mosaic floor in Thassos and Bardiglio marble. The washbasins are lacquered mother-of-pearl white with the fronts of the drawers in real white mother-of-pearl and surfaces in Thassos marble. The “emotional shower” delivers mood lighting and aromatherapy as well as water at the perfect temperature. A real experience of deep and complete wellbeing.rature. A real experience of deep and complete wellbeing.


The corridor opens to the right into a cinema room fitted with a TV unit with polished painted Caleidolegno wood, furniture in painted black polished oak and a large divan which can easily be made into a bed, turning the cinema into a fifth guest cabin. On the walls there are 5 cavallino leather panels in 3 different colours and on the floor night blue coloured leather tiles.

The walls of the day head opposite have been decorated with white mosaic tiles and steel, and a hammam or Turkish bath with a statuary marble floor and bench. Here guests can relax and enjoy an “emotional shower” with colour/aroma therapy. Once again to the left, there is a mirrored gym fitted with a treadmill, exercise bike and weights area which also provides direct access to the steam room.

Two guest cabins and a VIP cabin located at bow complete this area. The walls and bed in the guest cabins, both queen-size beds, are made of painted, custom-finished pama wood with fabric headboards. The bedside tables have been lacquered night blue and the front of the drawers are clad in antique style aluminium. The heads feature onyx marble surfaces and the shower unit walls are glass mosaics.

The VIP cabin at bow is entirely clad in ash wood with details in pama oak and features a large dressing area. The head features a washbasin in smoked oak painted grey with a surface in Thassos marble. The shower unit is clad in white and grey mosaics.

Extraordinary outdoor areas

The interior volumes are echoed by the truly incredibly outdoor spaces which are ideal for the owner and his family for relaxing in real comfort: the stern cockpit opens with a lounge area that can be protected by an awning and is separated from the dining area with a unit with a retractable TV clad in artic white marble. The front of the unit has panels lacquered in white, black and two shades of grey, forming a geometric pattern. The large table, clad in the same marble, can comfortably seat twelve.

There are also two docking stations in the cockpit, one on either side.


At bow, there is a real Mediterranean lounge club with cushions and jacuzzi, that can be protected from the sun with an awning, plus a large sunbathing area.

At the centre of the flybridge is a bar clad with attractive mosaics, with its front being a crystalline marble mosaic in vertical white and blue stripes, completed with 5 stools. It divides the well-equipped helm station and three helm seats from a large built-in lounging area aft, now well integrated within the structure.

Technical innovation

There are some important technical innovations, too: the new MTU 16V4000 M93L 4700hp engines have replaced the M90 3650hp ones; a new model of Kamewa waterjet has been installed, namely the the NP (new pump) which has a renewed design in order to offer a better performance and ensure lower fuel consumption; the electronics have changed considerably and feature additional functions and there is a new non-CO2 fire-fighting system, too, which ensures the same performance but is not harmful to crew and guests.
