New Model: Overmarine Mangusta 165

Announced as a project in 2004, the new Overmarine Mangusta 165 has been very much a top secret construction, with everyone trying to imagine what a fifty metre Sports Super Yacht would look like. Overmarine did not disappoint the critics and presented a spectacular Sport Yacht with open like characteristics! Personally I find it difficult to call this an open, although one must admit especially looking at the 165 from distance away that the design and style all call for a big hard top, open sport yacht. Architect Righini designed a great looking Sporty fifty metre Super Yacht following the lines of the successful 130 and putting in good use the extra length with an invisible sport flybridge and aggressive breath taking lines as a Mangusta should be. The custom interior of the 165 can accommodate ten or twelve guests in five or six staterooms while crew accommodation is for seven members in three cabins. Still as all Overmarine Mangusta this is a custom project and can be transformed to the owners requests. As for the performance these are up to standard Mangusta fame, with Hull one fitted with twin MTU 4556hp each driving Kamewa Jets plus Booster giving 37 knots of top speed. Overmarine is predicting to build 2 165' a year.
