This exciting new series, blending good looks and even better performance, is heading to U.S. shores in the next several weeks.
The first unit of the Mangusta GranSport 33 is under contract for an American owner and sees launch this spring.
The megayacht comes from the same designer as the rest of the Mangusta GranSport line, Alberto Mancini. This line combines style and technical solutions, sporty features and comfort, outstanding performance and maximum efficiency. Above all, thanks to the use of cutting-edge technology, the GranSport yachts deliver long range at cruising speed as well as high-speed performance, always ensuring maximum onboard comfort. This is a key feature, making this line truly versatile.
The 108-foot (33-meter) Mangusta GranSport 33 may be the smallest model in the fast-displacement family, but no less capable of swift speeds and good fuel economy. She features elegant, sleek lines and a perfect balance between exteriors and interiors. Therefore, she expresses Mangusta yachts’ distinctive Mediterranean lifestyle to the fullest.
A wide cockpit welcomes guests as they step onboard. On the flybridge sun lounges line the aft section, in proximity to a bar. Beneath the fixed hardtop, the Mangusta GranSport 33 provides plenty of seating. Even more sunning space sits on the foredeck, complemented by a hot tub and al fresco dining area. Inside, the main deck includes a spacious salon, where natural light shines through several ceiling-high windows. In addition, two of these windows open to let in the sea breeze. The master stateroom’s position, fully forward, is a key choice, too. It allows the owner to enjoy spacious volumes, unmatched privacy, good views, and plenty of light. The lower deck houses four cabins, available in different solutions.
The systems and engineering are top notch, meeting IMO Tier III and EPA Tier 3 emission standards. The Mangusta GranSport 33 features quadruple Volvo Penta D13 1000 18 engines. They develop 1,000 hp (735kW) at 2400 rpm, coupled with four Volvo Penta IPS pod drives. This ensures a top speed of 26 knots simultaneously with incredibly low vibration and sound, therefore unmatched guest comfort. The pod drives offer great maneuverability, via joystick control, during mooring operations as well. In addition, the system offers a version of dynamic positioning, which allows the yacht to remain stationary, without an anchor. Finally, the compact engine configuration reduces the space required for the engine room, thereby increasing the living area.
The low draft of 6’2” (1.9 meters) affords the Mangusta GranSport 33 close beach access and the ability to navigate shallow waterways. She has excellent stability whether cruising or at anchor due to four fin stabilizers. That’s why this yacht is ideal, for instance, to enjoy the Bahamas during the winter season or the Hamptons in the summer.
Hull number two, Project Taormina, is currently under construction, too. She is set for delivery in July 2020.
