In response to customers requesting a smaller megayacht model, the Mangusta Oceano semi-custom series now includes the Mangusta Oceano 39. What’s more, six hulls are already under contract, and the yacht has far more glass than her predecessors. This makes her “an oceangoing glass villa,” in the words of Stefano Arlunno, Mangusta’s president of the Americas.
Previously, the entry-level model in the series was the Mangusta Oceano 43, which celebrated the launch of its fourth hull late last year. The new project measures 128’6” (39.2 meters), with a beam of 27’9” (8.5 meters), and is fiberglass vs. metal.
Significantly, the Mangusta Oceano 39 represents a new look for the trideck series. She features primarily glass bulwarks, further frameless in several areas. Even handrails are glass. Floor-to-ceiling panels comprise the walls in a few relaxation areas, too, especially the upper-deck lounge. In fact, the side panels slide open, complementing the traditional opening aft-deck glass doors. Arlunno says this immense use of glass is definitely the future of the line. Alberto Mancini, Mangusta’s long-time design partner, calls the effect “a Miami penthouse.”
The glass benefits other areas, too. For instance, two infinity pools are onboard. One sits fully forward on the sundeck, while the other is on the foredeck. That foredeck pool has a glass bottom as well, bringing sunlight down into the master suite. Interiors are yours to personalize, with Mancini recommending light and light-reflective materials like oak soles.
Of course, as part of the Oceano line, the Mangusta Oceano 39 remains a long-range megayacht. One propulsion package should permit a 16-knot top speed, in keeping with displacement yachts. Those of you preferring a bit quicker pace, meanwhile, can select the package permitting a reported 21-knot maximum speed, like fast-displacement yachts. Regardless, you can make good time cruising from popular ports like Porto Cervo and St. Tropez in the Med and from the Bahamas to the Hamptons and onward to Martha’s Vineyard stateside.
No delivery date announced yet for hull number one of the 299-gross-ton megayacht.
