The Overmarine Group has announced the sale of its largest project yet, a 42 metre steel and aluminium yacht designed by Alberto Mancini.

The group officially announced that it was entering the long-range yacht market at the Monaco Yacht Show, but has emphasised that this new strategy will not detract from its successful Maxi Open yachts.

The sale of the 42 metre marks an important step for the shipyard which hopes to become a leader in the longer range yacht market.  Francesco Frediani, group commercial director elaborated, “This beautiful ship is already under construction in our Pisa facilities and we’re looking forward to admiring her sail the oceans of the world.”

The yacht has been designed with two innovative areas: on the deck at bow the external area has been created with two distinct places for sunbathing that plunge into a swimming-pool with an infinity-style waterfall. A glazed skylight at the bottom of the swimming-pool brings light and translucence into the owner’s suite head on the underlying bridge. Astern the tailgate has glazed cross cuts which provide glimpses through to a fully furnished beach area. Once open it stretches out over the sea creating a platform where the glazed surfaces become a source of natural light which lets the nocturnal illumination of the underwater lights set aft filter through. The interiors are designed to accommodate up to 12 guests and seven crew members ensuring maximum privacy and freedom of movement.
