Upon its US debut, the Mangusta Oceano “Namastè”, the three deck in Overmarine Group’s line of Long Range vessels designed by Alberto Mancini, won the “Best of the Show” award.
The award was organized by NBC Sports on the occasion of the recently-held Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. The jury - made up of designers, industrialists and other outstanding figures - selected the Mangusta Oceano from among all shortlisted boats as the one with “the most innovative design on display”.
After the several awards won in Europe by this model, this new one comes on a very important market like the American one, which is indeed showing great appreciation for Mangusta’s products and values.
The trophy, created by industrial designer Derek Jenkins, was handed out to Overmarine Group’s CEO Maurizio Balducci, who was accompanied by Stefano Arlunno, the Group’s Americas Area Manager. The Chairpersons of Marine Industries Association of South Florida and of Show Management, as well as NBC Sports team, were also present at the ceremony.
Mangusta is one of the few remaining family-owned brands in the yachting industry. The Balducci family has been building boats since the 1950s. The brand is driven by a strong focus on innovation and a pioneering approach to the use of cutting-edge technologies aimed at ensuring high speed performance, which go hand in hand with the utmost comfort. Over the years, the Overmarine Group has gained a solid reputation for its outstanding engineering, painstaking attention to details and finishes, the ability to interpret customer needs and requests, and outstanding reliability – before, during and after delivery.
Boasting more than 100 yachts over 30 meters delivered – many of which over the last few years, which witnessed a considerable increase in the yachts’ average length – Mangusta is a constant, strong presence in the large yachts industry, not only with Maxi Opens, which have become the market benchmark among fast and sporty yachts, but also in the segment of long-range displacement yachts, four hulls of which have already been launched in two years only. Mangusta’s range now grows further thanks to the Mangusta GranSport line, a combination of top performances and transoceanic range. The first model, a 54-meter ship, was delivered last Summer.
