These are the first looks at the successor to the popular Mangusta 165 series, with curves and convex shapes aplenty. In fact, the Mangusta 165 REV turns things up a notch in the styling and amenities departments. Simultaneously, she continues to deliver the performance maxi megayacht devotees want.
The 165 REV is the same LOA as her predecessor, that being 164 feet (50 meters). Some of her creature comforts remain familiar, too. For instance, the bow lounging area, which Mangusta was one of the first to create, should keep owners and guests happy all day long. Within its 645 square feet (60 square meters), it includes an infinity pool and a large seating/sunning space. You can go from daytime swims to sundowners quite easily here.
In conjunction with stylist Igor Lobanov, the 165 REV looks as racy as her pledged 34-knot top speed. Since the yacht is just entering outfitting, the owners will need to wait just a bit longer to put that speed to the test. Regardless, it’s more than enough to enjoy a late breakfast in, say, South Florida and make it over to the Bahamas in plenty of time for lunch and afternoon swims. It’s thanks to a power package with quadruple MTUs and KaMeWa waterjets. And, of course, they’ll look good doing it. Lobanov drew inspiration from sports cars from the 1930s. He also graces the yacht with floor-to-ceiling windows that are larger than the ones aboard the original 165.
In another change from the original model, Mangusta has brought M2 Atelier onboard as the interior designer. Customers can enjoy an open-plan main deck that includes a bar beneath three skylights, for example. They can also retire in peaceful comfort in the 990-square-foot (92-square-meter) master suite, which spans two levels, too. All that’s left is to decide whether four or five guest cabins suits their needs, and the woods, marbles, and other materials to set the mood.
