Unobstructed views of surrounding anchorages and immersive aquatic experiences are characteristics of the new Mangusta Oceano 44. In fact, this latest steel and aluminum megayacht introduces several lifestyle enhancements to indoor-outdoor living and entertainment onboard.
The shipyard considers the megayacht the successor to the Mangusta Oceano 43, which has seen six deliveries in five years. The two tridecks do share some similarities, like skylights in the master from the bottom of the foredeck pool. However, the new 144-footer (44-meter) caters even more to the desire to soak up the benefits of ever-changing natural surroundings.
One significant way, for instance, is the use of glass bulkheads and frameless handrails. Whether you’re lounging aft on the main deck or enjoying formal dinners inside, the result is “zero barrier spaces,” as Stefano Arlunno, Mangusta’s president of the Americas, says. Additionally, the Mangusta Oceano 44 takes more advantage of full-height, opening glass walls. The formal dining area on the main deck benefits, as you would expect. The master suite does, too.
But, a better example is the skylounge. Here, the Mangusta Oceano 44 has three sides of opening glass. Note that the interior encompasses about 431 square feet (40 square meters), gaining 624 square feet (58 square meters) due to the alfresco space. Furthermore, while the interior is semi-custom, designer Alberto Mancini and his studio have created a 360-degree rotating, C-shape settee, which should really appeal.
Yet another appealing area is the infinity pool on the foredeck. Mangusta calls it “the island,” since two sunpads are surrounded by the pool water. A teak walkway leads to and between them. Note as well that a second infinity pool is up on the sundeck, itself an impressive 1,120 square feet (104 square meters).
Finally, as you would expect, the Mangusta Oceano 44 has a three-sided beach club. For many megayacht clients, this is the heart of social life onboard. Combine that with an expected 4,500-nautical mile range at 11 knots, and abundant destinations await at the transom door.
