Mangusta 165 E hull no. 10 was delivered this morning. Besides being a resounding commercial success, the current flagship of the Maxi Open Mangusta fleet is also a style icon destined to last over the years and a milestone in nautical history.
Official delivery took place at the Overmarine Group wharf in Viareggio. Unit no. 10 is the third yacht in the series to be sold to the American market in the past 3 years. The yacht is characterised both by the new “E” (where E stands for Evolution) aesthetics and four engine propulsion system which the shipyard recently introduced to continue with its programme of constant research and innovation.
An excellent performance is combined with greater attention to consumption and onboard wellbeing, both at anchor and underway, also thanks to the yacht’s new gyroscopic stabilisation system. The latest aesthetics mean more aggressive, more muscular lines, new glazing on the main deck – a single pane of glass where the salon is, which offers excellent visibility from inside and lets in copious amounts of natural light – and a more elongated flybridge with an aesthetic grill astern which gives the yacht even greater dynamic thrust.
The propulsion system provides for four 2600HP MTU 16V2000 M94 engines, 4 Rolls Royce/KameWa NP water jets and 4 Seakeeper stabilisers. The result is both that the yacht’s performance is similar to that of the past but with lower consumption and that she is extremely comfortable even when used at low speeds.
The interiors, as indeed those of all Mangusta yachts, are entirely customised. The Groups’ Design Dept. managed to interpret the Owners’ wishes and requirements beautifully. As this is their second Mangusta yacht, they knew exactly what they wanted on board.
Hulls no. 11 and 12 are currently under construction, both of which have already been sold and will be launched next year.
