Mangusta Oceano 50, the new model of the Overmarine Group’s Mangusta Oceano line, was presented at the Yacht Club Monaco.
The Mangusta Oceano 50 has been designed to optimize indoor and outdoor spaces while maintaining the limit of 500GT. A project that immediately involved Overmarine Group in the creation of a yacht that would ensure great habitability with the volumes and comfort that characterize the line, while offering something innovative and original in this market segment.
Designer Alberto Mancini explains how the project was born: ” The pencil sculpts every detail, a multitude of sketches on paper, I want it to be a megayacht with a strong, powerful and slender look but with the shadows and reflections of a sculpture, playing with empty and full surfaces as if the aluminum were molded on a moving being, I balance the lines both taut and soft, then I create a sign to highlight the windows, I lengthen them as a single line that unites inside and outside. I begin to imagine the bridges as sculpted by the wind, each one cantilevered on the lower deck, but that is not enough and then I create cuts as if aluminum was a light canvas and I illuminate them with indirect light to highlight the most hidden surfaces and to give them even more character… And so with my thoughts, I’m already there to admire him while he lights up a beautiful bay in the middle of a Caribbean night with his reflections”.
The outdoor spaces available to guests include an area in the stern cockpit. The sofas are enclosed by a teak shell and form a square ring, slightly lowered than the side passages. The glass surface on the floor allows natural light to illuminate the beach club below.
The size of the beach club is important thanks to the forward garage. The stern door and the two side doors open 180 degrees to create a platform on the sea with the possibility of an external walkaround.
Innovative solutions were also sought for the layout of the spaces in the bow. The large cockpit, which can be furnished as desired by the Owner, overlooks the garage capable of collecting a tender of over 6 meters and two jet skis. Once the tender has been launched, the containing pool can be filled with water to obtain a real swimming pool with counter-current swimming.
A second Jacuzzi pool is located on the sundeck, near a dining table for 12 people protected from the sun by a full beam hard top and a relaxation area.
The interiors have been designed in continuity with the exteriors. The full-height windows of the saloon on the main deck, as well as those on the upper deck, allow light to filter through the intentionally emptied bulwarks to increase the view of the sea.
For the interior design, Mancini proposes a refined style, which plays on light, soft and elegant tones. The materials used include silks and linens in light shades of blue and turquoise, white marble and sand-colored oak parquet, in contrast with the midnight blue ash and brass finishes.
The Mangusta Oceano 50 is equipped with two MTU 12V 2000 M86 engines that allow a maximum speed of 16 knots and a range of 4000 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 11 knots.
The steel hull has a bow bulb and the boat has been designed to ensure great maneuverability and flexibility of use, stability both at anchor and in navigation, containment of noise and vibration thanks to the use of the latest technologies and materials.
The construction of the first model has just begun and it will be ready in 2020.
