Italian superyacht builder Overmarine has announced the sale of the second Oceano 42 prior to the imminent launch of the first hull. The Oceano 42 is the second largest Mangusta range, behind the Mangusta 165 which measures 49.5m in length. Overmarine is also set to improve on last years’ delivery figures, with three deliveries scheduled in 2016.
“We’re celebrating the sale of the second Mangusta Oceano 42 just a very few days before the first one is launched on Saturday, 4 June,” comments Francesco Frediani, Overmarine’s group commercial director. “When we decided to enter a different market segment, we were convinced and also fully aware of the fact that we’d be able to play a key role in this market. This further sale, and the interest the model has aroused, even before its official presentation at the September boat shows, confirms that we are clearly on the right track.”
Overmarine is predominately famed for its sleek and sporty looking Mangusta superyachts, and the Oceano 42 is certainly no exception. Designed by Alberto Mancini, the 42.3m superyacht has a sporty and sharp exterior as well as more rounded lines, creating a wholesome and well balanced design.
Throughout the development of this range, extremely close attention has been paid to comfort, including noise levels, stability and the use of new generation technology and materials. The 42.3m also has the capacity to accommodate up to 12 guests and seven crew members on board.
Building on a successful 2015, Overmarine’s delivery figures are set to improve in 2016 with three scheduled deliveries and a combined LOA of 131.9m, the largest of which, 49.9m Incognito, has already been delivered. In the 2016 edition of The Superyacht Intelligence Annual Report, Overmarine was listed as the 13th most successful shipyard and this position is set to remain stable, if not improve, considering the Italian shipyards strong stance and consistency. Furthermore, Overmarine is one of only 17 shipyards that have delivered at least one superyacht every year for the last five years.
The first Oceano 42 is scheduled for delivery on 4 June.
