New Mangusta 165E is the 11th to be built

Overmarine Group has sold a new 50m yacht. The contract is for a Mangusta 165E and she is hull 11 of the group’s Mangusta 165 series.

The yacht is destined for the European market and will be ready at the beginning of 2017.

Francesco Frediani, group commercial director, comments: “This is the second Mangusta 165E we’ve sold this year. This confirms the success of this model, which is unique in terms of her performance and characteristics, thanks to her high technical content, exceptional onboard comfort and ability to stir up emotions in those aboard.”

The E on this model stands for Evolution. The yacht features new aesthetics that translates into more aggressive, muscular lines. A large window on the main deck and a large flybridge equipped with a grill astern are some of her unique features.

Powering this vessel are four 2600HP MTU 16V2000 M94 engines. She is also equipped with four Rolls Royce/Kamewa NP water jets and four Seakeeper stabilisers.

The engines selected for this yacht are lighter than the previous ones used (4000 series) on this model, so there is less weight in movement with the installed power, which the builder claims is almost unchanged.

As a result, the weight/power ratio value of the engine package is more suitable for reaching the preset aims. In addition, the builder says the engines are more efficient and their functionality is modular on request.

The water jets are also more efficient, Overmarine says, as they feature a new design that offers better performance and greater yield. “The result is that the performance is similar to the one attained in teh past, but consumption is considerably lower: at 20ks and at 30ks, it is 35% less,” reads a statement.

Also onboard is an innovative dynamic positioning gadget. This feature, the shipyard claims, makes it possible to keep the yacht still in a selected GPS position without having to anchor. The system acts on the effect of the tide, the wind and the current by simply combining the direction and thrust.
