In the summer of 2022, an American will be the latest Mangusta client to take delivery of one of its metal displacement megayachts. Project Verona is the code name for now of his Mangusta Oceano 50, the second hull in the series so far.
Since the series offers customization, this owner naturally took advantage in a few areas. For instance, the upper deck will boast the largest infinity pool ever on a Mangusta. It’s fully forward, too, a perfect perch for enjoying unobstructed views. Since the owner intends to cruise the Bahamas, you can imagine how the colors of the sea and the pool may mimic one another, essentially feeling connected. Additionally, and fittingly for a tropical cruiser, the interior design will feature Floridian flair. The owner is working with Alberto Mancini, who further is responsible for exterior styling, for the layout and design.
As for the layout, Project Verona will have six staterooms, five of which are below decks. They include a VIP. Traditionally, master suites sit on the main deck, and this yacht follows suit. It also features a fold-down balcony. Although Mangusta is not revealing the decor materials just yet, the megayacht should make family and friends feel comfortable elsewhere on the main deck. This is due to two full-height sliding side doors capable of opening up the saloon. In combination with the aft entry door remaining open, the saloon turns into an indoor-outdoor lounge.
For entirely outdoor relaxation, though, the owner and guests have two more strong choices. Firstly, the terraced stern covers 732 square feet (68 square meters). Secondly, an infinity hot tub complements the sundeck’s seating and dining area, the latter for 14.
Since the Mangust Oceano series emphasizes long range, Project Verona should see 4,500 nautical miles at 11 knots, plus a top speed of 16 knots. Power comes from twin 1,700-hp MTU diesel engines.
Coincidentally, hull number one of the Mangusta Oceano 50 series just saw delivery in the past several days.
