Overmarine Group will once again be present on the exclusive international boat show circuit this year, first at the Cannes Yachting Festival then at the Monaco Yacht Show, and as ever the shipyard will be one of the leading lights in the upmarket luxury sector. Three brand new open motor yachts, launched in April and May this year, will serve as testimonials par excellence for the Italian shipyard’s production, on display at the quayside. The CYF 2015 will witness the world debut of the second Mangusta 110 hull to be delivered, as well as another Mangusta 94. Meanwhile, at the MYS 2015, the first hull of the Mangusta 132 will be presented in another world first. This yacht was sold to her owner at the beginning of this year, and on the occasion Francesco Frediani, the Overmarine Group Sales Commercial Director, made his pride and satisfaction clear, saying: “This model was created in line with the Group’s strategic development plan, which in recent years has driven expansion and renewal of the range, while focusing on increasing vessel size and greater efficiency, or rather maintaining comfort on board and improving performance but with ever decreasing consumption. The fact that we can now boast this outstanding result is due to these strategic choices, which, combined with the professionalism and experience of a shipyard that has belonged to the same family for 30 years, allow us to play a key role on the market.” In the last two years, the shipyard has introduced four brand new models onto the market in quick succession to expand and renew its Mangusta Maxi Open range: the Mangusta 94, the Mangusta 110, the Mangusta 165E and finally the Mangusta 132. This cutting-edge model at the top of world production benefits from the numerous improvements introduced in all the previous models, clearly showing the recent technical and stylistic evolution of the Mangusta Maxi Open range. As usual, the motor yacht has been built in advanced composite using a tried and tested, constantly updated production system in which the hull is formed with an advanced GRP single skin composite structure based on vinylester resin and a hand lay-up and infusion process, while the deck and superstructure are created using an advanced GRP sandwich composite structure based on vinylester resin and a hand lay-up and infusion process. However, when it comes to every other aspect of the vessel, it’s a long list of innovations that provide tangible proof of the “evolution of the species” in a positive, continuous progression. The technical evolution of the new Mangusta 132 features a hull redesigned to incorporate the hydrodynamic solutions that were successfully introduced on the Mangusta 165, as well as a new hydrojet propulsion system, enhanced engines and the gyroscope-based stabilisation system that operates both while underway and at anchor. Compared to the previous model, the hugely successful Mangusta 130 of which around 20 hulls have been built, these improved technical characteristics mean that the new Mangusta 132 can offer a higher level of comfort with superior performance in the water, while at the same time affording lower consumption and an increased range. The aesthetic evolution of the new Mangusta 132 is in line with the specific image components that are the trademark of Mangusta maxi open yachts, with a sporty, race-oriented look, yet enhanced with all the innovative elements that have progressively been introduced on the latest models. These include the new window solution on the main deck, a single sheet of glass the height of the salon, which offers outstanding visibility from indoors and lets in abundant natural light. Then there are the new lines of the flybridge, which now has a more modern, aggressive look with a spacious sun deck to allow for more usable space and make it possible to install a secondary external helm station – the perfect solution for fans of the feel of high speed ‘driving’ in the open air. For the Mangusta Maxi Open 132, the Overmarine Group Technical Office in-house team devised both the naval architecture and the naval engineering, while the exterior design was developed by Stefano Righini working closely with the Overmarine Group Design Department in-house team, and finally the interior design was also created by the Overmarine Group Design Department. The expert designers flawlessly implemented the needs and requirements of the Owner, who had previously owned a Mangusta motor yacht and was therefore aware of the Italian shipyard’s capabilities when it comes to meeting the requirements of the most demanding clientele. On the new Mangusta 132, the arrangement of the space is the result of a careful study of volume and surface area, the aim being to achieve the maximum wellbeing on board as well as a well thought out, complete separation between guest and crew areas. Of the numerous options available for the layout of the vessel, which has a five-cabin configuration in the standard version, the Owner opted for a four-cabin configuration. In more detail, the layout of the first hull of the Mangusta 132 can accommodate up to nine passengers in one master stateroom, one VIP stateroom and two guest staterooms, and up to six crew in one captain’s cabin and two crew cabins. On the flybridge, the aft section features an open air lounge area with chairs and coffee tables, while amidships there is a bar with bar stools, and forward, a sunbathing area with sun pads has been created next to the secondary external helm station. Outside on the main deck, an open air lounge area has been set out on the fore deck with chairs and coffee tables, next to a sunbathing area with sun pads. On the aft deck, the uncovered section has a sunbathing area with sun pads, while the covered section has an al fresco dining area with a table and chairs, next to an al fresco lounge area with chairs and a coffee table. Inside on the main deck, the salon features a dining area with a table and chairs and a bar with bar stools, as well as a living area with sofas and a coffee table. A glass panel separates the salon from the adjacent main interior helm station, which has an instrument panel and three pilot’s chairs. The lower deck houses both the Owner’s private suite and the private guest accommodation, as well as a relaxing salon, as per the Owner’s request, located where the fourth guest cabin would be on the standard layout of the motor yacht. This space has been laid out as a cinema room with a sofa and coffee tables, and is equipped with a convenient day head. The Owner’s private suite features a study/office and the master stateroom, with a double bed, desk/dressing table and relaxation area with a sofa, as well as a dressing room and an en suite bathroom. The private guest accommodation comprises three staterooms, each with an en suite bathroom. The VIP stateroom has a double bed, desk/dressing table and relaxation space with an armchair, while one guest stateroom has a double bed and the other guest stateroom has twin beds and a third foldout bed. The lower deck is also home to the crew quarters, featuring a galley, a dinette, a laundry and three cabins, namely the captain’s cabin and two crew cabins, each of which has its own bathroom and two foldout bunk beds. The new Mangusta Maxi Open 132 has three enclosed garages with openable hatches. The largest, used to house the main tender, is located in the stern, while smaller twin garages are located in symmetrical positions on opposite sides of the yacht in the aft section, and these are used to store a pair of jetskis or waverunners.
