Namasté Adds to Mangusta’s Appeal in America

Mangusta makes inroads into the North American market with its Mangusta Oceano.

Established in the mid-’80s by Giuseppe Balducci as a brand of Overmarine Group, Mangusta enjoys a strong tradition in the United States. For decades, its fast, open sport boats have earned high regard. Identifying displacement vessels as a primary emerging market here, Mangusta believes its 40- to 60-meter range of Mangusta Oceano models is perfectly positioned for the U.S. audience. The company introduced the Mangusta Oceano range at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show last fall, with the 43-meter Namasté. American buyers can also see Namasté at this spring’s Miami and Palm Beach shows. This exposes them to another side of Mangusta’s yacht-building capability.

Built in steel and aluminum, at 451 gross tons, Namasté is high-volume for her size. Designed by the shipyard’s engineering departments with engineer Ausonio and designer Alberto Mancini, she combines style and cutting-edge technology. This allows experiencing unmatched comfort in diverse conditions and exotic locations.

Her layout includes standard enough features for megayachts, but unusual on a yacht under 150 feet (45 meters). For example, she has two saloons, an infinity pool, a dedicated beach club, and a forward tender garage. A full automatic electric hydraulic side ladder makes boarding easy. The accommodations, meanwhile, include an owner’s suite with a full-beam head and an extendible balcony, plus two VIP and two twin cabins. Finally, a captain’s cabin sits behind the wheelhouse.

In terms of technology, this yacht is hard to beat. It’s thanks to her world-class construction quality and impressive performance. Powered by twin MTU 12V 2000 M72 engines, she achieves nearly 5,000nm at a cruising speed of 12 knots. She also boasts highly economical fuel consumption thanks to her CFD-optimized, tank-tested hull. The use of the latest vibration- and noise-damping materials ensures acoustic comfort for all, too.

Delivering more than 100 yachts over 30 meters—many over the last few years—Mangusta is a constant, strong presence in the large-yacht industry.

The range grows further thanks to the Mangusta GranSport line, a combination of top performances and transoceanic range. Recently, the first 54-meter in this line completed an Atlantic crossing in only six days, carrying her owner and several guests! This is indeed the first Mangusta ever to cross the Atlantic Ocean. She’s bound to become the new benchmark in aluminum Fast Displacement Yachts. 

The current Mangusta range includes: Mangusta GranSport 45 and 54; Mangusta Oceano 43, 46, 55, and 60; and Mangusta Maxi Open 94, 110, 132, 165E, and 215.
