The eighth hull from the Maxi Open Mangusta fleet's flagship line of Mangusta 165 E superyachts was launched on Thursday 6 February from the Overmarine Group’s private wharf in Viareggio. Measuring 50m in length, the Mangusta 165 has a top speed of 40 knots, which makes her the fastest of the eight Maxi Opens to be launched.

In a statement to the media, Overmarine Group said: 'She knows no rivals in terms of comfort; the volumes of the yacht can be compared to a three-deck vessel of the same dimension, although this cannot be gleaned from the outside owing to her pure lines and sporty profile. The extraordinary combination of linear stress and expression of line gives this model an elegant character which is simultaneously distinctive and powerful. She is a masterpiece of distinctive, elegant, timeless design, conveying balance and dynamism and offering at the same time extremely high levels of on board comfort, safety and practicality. This particular yacht is, however, even more unique, insomuch as she has been called 165 E, where ‘E’ stands for “Evolution”.'
The 'evolution' refers to the added emphasis on natural light with the addition of a new side window, a large single pane of glass by the main salon, providing excellent visibility from the inside and letting in even more natural light. Moreover, alterations have been made to the flybridge, the superstructure of which has been redesigned in order to house a large U-shaped divan, giving this yacht more modern, aggressive lines.

Inside the yacht more than 10 different kinds of woods and lacquering have been used, as well as at least seven different kinds of marble, including exquisite Blue Tiger Eye, ray leather, mother of pearl and onyx.

The Mangusta 165E will now be delivered to her owner at an official ceremony. She will then be presented as a world première in September at the Monaco Yacht Show.
