Two years after the series saw its first hull hit the water, the third Mangusta Oceano 50 yacht has celebrated her launch. It’s further confirmation that Mangusta customers aren’t just interested in fast yachts.
For years, Mangusta became synonymous with sleek, fast, open, all-aluminum yachts. While yacht buyers still gravitate toward those models, increasingly, the builder says clients asked for long-range, more fuel-efficient projects. That led to the Mangusta Oceano series. This particular model, then flagship at its reveal in 2019, helped to extend Mangusta’s steel megayactht series. She allows a reported range of 4,500 nautical miles at 11 knots under half load.
Like her predecessors, hull three bears naval architecture and engineering from P.L.A.N.A. Design. Alberto Mancini, meanwhile, provides the sporty styling, with input from the shipyard’s own engineering department. The shipyard’s in-house team collaborated with the owner for the interior, too. In fact, Overmarine Group’s designers custom designed and built the furnishings out on deck and throughout the interior. No details are available on what the overall ambience is like or on particular materials used, however.
The shipyard does say, though, that the owner chose a five-stateroom configuration below decks for guests. (The Mangusta Oceano 50 yacht general arrangement also allows for just four staterooms here. The eliminated cabin can be an extra lounge, a gym, or other room.) Naturally, the master stateroom is on the main deck, taking advantage of a deploying balcony. Overall, the suite has a 560-square-foot (52-square-meter) footprint.
Further naturally, the owner and the guests will spend a good amount of time outside on deck. Certainly an area they’ll gather in and around is the sundeck, with a hot tub. But, they have another, larger pool with hydromassage and counterflow jets for swimming down below. Measuring about 20 feet by 8 feet (6 meters by 2.6 meters), it’s the tender bay, filled when the tender is deployed. Pre- and post-swim, guests can relax in the beach club, with opening platforms on three sides.
While the third Mangusta Oceano 50 yacht finishes sea trials and outfitting, the shipyard team has six more Mangusta Oceano megayachts in build. In fact, one belongs to the Mangusta Oceano 44 series. Another hull of that series is available for sale, as is a Mangusta Oceano 50 hull. The former can see delivery in 2025, while the latter can see delivery in 2026.
