Mangusta 165’

by Overmarine Group / Mangusta with Stefano Righini

For his third sports open motor yacht experience from the Overmarine Group, this time the Owner opted for the exclusive flagship of the famous Italian brand: the Mangusta 165’. At the beginning of summer last year, the shipyard delivered the seventh hull of the successful model which is still highly acclaimed on the international market a full five years after it was launched.


This was certainly the case at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show 2012, where the seventh Mangusta 165’ was officially presented – its quality led to the latest Owner putting in an order for the eighth hull. When the latest Mangusta 165’ was presented at the FLIBS 2012 just after it was delivered, Overmarine Group Chairman Maurizio Balducci said that the Italian company was well satisfied: “We are proud of this American debut – this is the first 50-metre Mangusta in the United States! It is a highly successful model for Overmarine Group, as the seven vessels delivered since it was first presented in 2007 demonstrate.” In this issue, Yacht Première presents a portrait of the new sports open vessel, revealing all its main features to our readers.


The main dimensional and technical data

As with all Mangusta motor yachts, the quality of the final result was fully guaranteed for the seventh Mangusta 165’ by the fact that all the design and construction phases took place within the Overmarine Group, including the technical study of the hull and the implementation of the lamination process. An advanced GRP single skin composite structure based on vinyl ester resin with a hand lay-up process was used to create the hull, while an advanced GRP sandwich composite structure based on vinyl ester resin with a hand lay-up process and an infusion process was used for the superstructure. The Mangusta 165’ has a length overall of 49.90 metres, or 163 feet 9 inches, and a beam overall of 9.20 metres, or 30 feet 2 inches. Under full load, the hull has a maximum draught of 1.95 metres, or 6 feet 5 inches, while under half load the yacht has a displacement of 285 tonnes. The Mangusta 165’s engine room contains three MTU V16 4000 M93L engines, each with maximum power of 4,610 BHP / 3,440 bkW supplied at 2,100 rpm. The Rolls-Royce Kamewa hydrojet propulsion system consists of one 71B3 booster unit and two 80 S3 steerable units. This configuration allows the Mangusta 165’ to achieve a top speed of 38 knots (although the captain has reached 40 knots in practice), while at cruising speed, the yacht has a range of 600 nautical miles. In the hold of the Mangusta 165’, the fuel tanks have a total capacity of 40,000 litres, equivalent to 10,567 US gallons, while the freshwater tanks have a total capacity of 4,000 litres, equivalent to 1,058 US gallons. The main technology on board the Mangusta 165’ also includes an active interceptor system to stabilise the hull at speed.
