This year marks the debut of the first-ever full-displacement megayacht from Mangusta: the Mangusta Oceano 148.
Fitted with a bulbous bow, the all-fiberglass Mangusta Oceano 148 emphasizes leisurely, transoceanic travel. Top speed should be about 16 knots, with cruising speed around 12 knots. Range should be about 4,000 nautical miles at cruise, plenty to cross from Mediterranean shores to American ones. Power comes courtesy of twin MTU 12V 4000 M53R diesel engines.
Even with these firsts, the Mangusta Oceano 148 bears some similarities to Mangusta’s range of open megayachts. The interior is open to customization, for example. Up to 12 in the owner’s party can enjoy rooms adorned with abundant wood, or a mixture of surface treatments. Rooms can be open to one another or arranged as more formal, private areas. In fact, one suggested layout option includes sliding partitions on the main deck to separate spaces. Below decks, most buyers will likely request two twin cabins to accompany a VIP and another double stateroom. The twins can further feature pullman berths.
Regardless of how you like to live aboard, you’ll appreciate the 29’5” (9.2-meter) beam. The Mangusta Oceano 148 is also said to offer 30 percent more walkable space than similar-size and -style megayachts.
