On Saturday 4 June, Overmarine launched the first of its Long Range 42m steel and aluminium vessels from its facility in Pisa. In the presence of her new owner and his family, the Mangusta Oceano 42 hit the water during a private ceremony after two years of construction.
Although the 42m superyacht, designed by Alberto Mancini, does have a handful of traditional Mangusta elements, such as the elongated bow and square windows; the Oceano 42 boldly breaks away from the traditional Mangusta style, with no sign of the signature curved window on the top deck and a far more linear profile than previous models. This new and updated style manifests itself across the entire Oceanic range, and marks an important transition for the Overmarine group.
“Today has been really important for us” declared Maurizio Balducci, Group’s CEO. “This is the company’s very first three deck displacement yacht. She is also the first to be built in metal, and the first to be constructed here at our Pisa shipyard.”
The interiors have been designed to accommodate up to 12 guests over five cabins and seven crew members in four cabins. There are two separate sunbathing areas on board, one of which is next to the swimming pool, which also has a waterfall in order to create an infinity effect.
Not only has Overmarine transformed the yachts, but also the group as a whole. After significant investments in infrastructure, Overmarine has completed its new 22000m2 facility in Pisa, of which 9000m2 is covered.
The 42m superyacht, which has recently been sold, will be present at the upcoming autumn shows.
