New Model: Overmarine Mangusta 54 Gransport

On April 28 MY El Leon the new Overmarine Mangusta 54 Gransport flagship splashed into the water. It is the first ship of the Overmarine Group's new fast displacement line in aluminium. These are super sport yachts that can combine long range and best performance in displacement mode with high speeds, those typical of high-performance yachts, whenever desired by the Owner.  The launching ceremony took place in the Navicelli area Pisa, at the presence of the Owner, his family and friends, the City authorities, both of Pisa and Viareggio, the Balducci family and everyone who contributed to the creation of the vessel, excited and proud of the result.  The Mangusta GranSport line is designed by Alberto Mancini. Its lines tell of a ship with a brilliant personality both aesthetically and functionally, a line that reflects the muscular and dynamic lines typical of Mangusta but with the aggressiveness suited to a sporty raised pilot jouse yacht.  A sleek profile, powerful engines, high cruising speed and ample and functional spaces on-board: this model can easily cover long distances, quickly and comfortably.  Aesthetically the 54 Gransport expresses at its best the uniqueness of the Mangusta. The lines are aerodynamic, balanced and straightforward: a stern of great character and extremely dynamic; air intakes created as slits straight into the aluminium, sloped windshields and uprights integrated to the rollbar. The Jacuzzi and swimming pool dominate the bow sun bridge and bring light into the Owner head through glass skylight on the bottom. On the stern, the rotation of the central and lateral doors gives life to a "club on the sea" made of perfectly equipped terraces and beach area. The flybridge boasts a central bar designed to serve both spaces, towards the bow a dining area protected by a hard top and towards the stern a living area. All the exterior spaces can be used in full safety also during navigation.  The interior areas communicate with the exterior ones through vast windowed surfaces in a concept of fluidity and continuity that characterizes the entire super sport yacht.  Thanks to four MTU 2600hp engines and the presence of stabilisers, Mangusta 54 Gransport can reach a top speed of 29 knots, while a low speed long range cruise of 12 knots allows a range of 4200 nautical miles, after which one needs to refuel 71000 liters of fuel.
