The Overmarine Group’s expansion into displacement megayachts continues. Hull number one of the Mangusta Oceano 50 series has attracted a buyer, from Europe, who will see delivery in 2021.
The official unveiling of the series occurred earlier this year, in the spring. To save some time, and in anticipation of the Mangusta Oceano 50 selling, the shipyard started laying the metal hull plates around that same time. The hunch was correct. According to the management team, the customer signed the contract just a few months later.
Even though she’s a displacement yacht, the Mangusta Oceano 50 keeps some of the bold family styling of the maxi open Mangustas. Alberto Mancini, the stylist, and the Overmarine Group’s own engineering division do this purposely. This means ample alfresco areas, sharp lines, and a sporty overall look. It all comes in a trideck package beneath the 500-gross-ton threshold, too, and a length of 164 feet (50 meters).
The just-mentioned alfresco areas are some of the things that this customer appreciated the most. For example, the main aft deck has a semi-sunken lounging area, lower than the side decks, for a cozier and more private feel. Fully forward, meanwhile, the teak-laid foredeck provides abundant space for loose lounges to enjoy an anchorage. The toy garage is up here, too, and transforms into a swimming pool when the crew launch the tender. In fact, the pool has counter-current jets. Yet another relaxing experience awaits on the sundeck, in the hot tub. The owner and guests will probably spend a lot of time up here, given a 12-person dining area, beneath the hardtop, as well as seating.
Yet another aspect the owner appreciated is the semi-custom interior arrangement. The Mangusta Oceano 50 can include five or six staterooms for family and friends, plus flexible crew cabins as well. The shipyard has not revealed what this particular client wants. However, generally speaking, you can choose between five and six cabins, for nine to 11 people.
Because this is a displacement megayacht, the Mangusta Oceano 50 should achieve a 4,000-nautical-mile range at an 11-knot cruise. Power comes from twin MTUs, which additionally should allow a top speed of 16 knots.
