Construction of hull #1 of the new 54 flagship model of the Mangusta is underway at the shipyard in Pisa. The Mangusta GranSport is designed by Alberto Mancini.
Overmarine Group has announced the sale of hull #1 of the Mangusta GranSport 54. This 54m motoryacht is the flagship of the Mangusta GranSport, the shipyard’s new Fast Displacement line.
Commenting on the sale, Francesco Frediani, group commercial director, says: “This successful sale confirms that, thanks to our thirty year tradition of building fast, comfortable yachts and the reputation we’ve built up in that time, we’re even able to aspire to playing a leading role in a segment that’s completely new to us.”
The Italian shipyard presented the design concept of the Mangusta GranSport during the Monaco Yacht Show 2015.
This is a line of yachts designed to cruise long distances quickly and comfortably.
Engineering studies and tank tests were carried out after the presentation of the concept, and a few changes made to the project.
The yacht was altered in length and is currently a 54m vessel. She also features a new four-engine propulsion system (4 x MTU 16V 2000 M94 2600Hp) with stabilisers. The yacht is said to reach a top speed of up to 30 knots.
The shipyard says that greater propulsion efficiency and lower consumption —especially at slow speeds— are some of the advantages in the new design.
Her lower draft, of around 2.5m, is perfect for cruising in shallow waters like those of the Bahamas, for example, or the islands of the Mediterranean.
Overmarine has also announced that the yacht has better hydrodynamics and that she is capable of a range of around 3,800nm.
Construction of hull #1 has already begun at the shipyard in Pisa. The new build will be ready in 2018.
