Project: Overmarine Mangusta 148 Oceano

Overmarine Mangusta the very famous builder of 72 to 165 feet open hard top sport yachts finally show some renderings of its two years ago announced 148 Oceano. For the Italian Viareggio Overmarine founded in the eighties this project touches new challenges with the 148 Oceano representing its first build having a displacement hull, and three decks. The 148 Oceano just as the open hard top is to be designed by Stefano Righini, architect for Overmarine Mangusta since the early nineties. Righini presented a classic looking exterior with a standard interior plan offering five cabins. The owners stateroom will be located on the main deck, two VIP suites to mid ship below, and two double guest cabins below. A total of five double crew cabins are to be found, including the captains cabin on the upper deck just behind the helm station. As these renderings also show the 148 Oceano will also offer the latest of hydraulic opening balconies and terraces, these being the latest fashion to capture the modern super yachts. So far we can see two of these, one on the lower deck, and a second on the main deck by the owners suite. Twin MTU of 1523hp should give a top speed of 15 knots, and a cruise of 12 knots this last delivering an estimated range of 4000 nautical miles.
