Thursday, February 14, 2019 5:24 PM
The Mangusta GranSport line has been designed by Overmarine Group with a view to combining style and technical solutions, timeless elegance and minimalist design, sporty features and comfort, outstanding performances and maximum efficiency. Above all, thanks to the use of cutting-edge technology, the Magusta GranSport fleet can deliver a very long range at cruising speed as well as very high-speed performances, always ensuring maximum onboard comfort – a key feature that makes this line truly versatile and allows her to offer the most precious gift any Owner can dream of: total freedom and flexibility in managing their time.
This successful combination of different features and values has also inspired the new model in this line, the Mangusta GranSport 33, which was presented at Mangusta’s new showroom in Miami Beach yesterday.
This model - the new entry level in the Mangusta GranSport line – shares with larger ones a flawless blend of stylish design and state-of-the-art technology.
During the first brief, designer Alberto Mancini was asked to work on a new model that would feature an elegant profile and a strong personality, skillfully combining sleek lines, minimalism and a perfect balance between exteriors and interiors - the latter being the very essence of Mangusta’s DNA. The outcome is a project where exterior and interior areas share the same harmonized design style and express Mangusta yachts’ distinctive Mediterranean lifestyle to the fullest.
The master stateroom is located on the main deck, a key choice allowing the Owner to enjoy spacious volumes, unmatched privacy and incredible brightness.
The main deck also includes a spacious salon where plenty of natural light shines through several ceiling-high windows, two of which can be opened to let in the pleasant Mediterranean breeze and ensure natural air circulation. The galley, adjacent to the salon, allows the crew to serve guests easily and efficiently. The lower deck hosts 4 comfortable guest cabins, for which several configurations are available.
Outside, a wide, fully-equipped cockpit welcomes guests as they step onboard. The wide flybridge features a sunbathing area, a bar and a living area, allowing the Owners and their guests to chill out while enjoying the utmost privacy and total freedom of movement. Another lounge area furnished with a sofa and a table to dine al fresco is located forward, where a large sunbathing area with Jacuzzi tub can also be found.
Alberto Mancini’s interpretation of interiors is the embodiment of pure Italian style, perfectly matching the yacht’s exterior lines. Overmarine Group is always ready to listen to the Owners’ ideas and proposals, to share their vision, their wishes, their needs… and to work jointly to achieve maximum customization of both layout and décor.
The Mangusta GranSport 33 is powered by an innovative propulsion system: 4 Volvo Penta D13 1000 IB 735kW engines (~1000HP) at 2400rpm, coupled with 4 Volvo Penta IPS pods mod. 1350. The propulsion selected for this model ensures incredibly low vibrations and great noiselessness, resulting in unmatched comfort. Thanks to the impressive efficiency of this system across the entire speed range, the Mangusta GranSport 33’s performances go hand in hand with optimized consumption up to a maximum speed of 26 knots. At the same time, full compliance is ensured with the strictest IMO Tier III and EPA Tier 3 emission standards.
The yacht’s compact 4-engine configuration also results in a smaller engine room, thereby increasing the space available for the Owners and their guests. Onboard systems ensure great maneuverability during mooring operations, thanks to the “Joystick Docking” system, and dynamic positioning, a function that allows the yacht to maintain any pre-set position. All these outstanding solutions make the Mangusta GranSport 33 an extremely user-friendly craft even for non-professional users.
Onboard comfort is excellent at all speeds as well as when the yacht is at anchor, thanks to a sophisticated “Humphree” integrated system consisting of four fin stabilizers that are electronically integrated with the “active Interceptors” installed on the transom.
Thanks to her very low draft of 1.9 m (6.23 ft), allowing her to easily cruise in very shallow waters, this yacht is ideal, for instance, to enjoy the Bahamas during the winter season or the Hamptons in the summer.
Construction of the first model has just begun, with delivery expected in 2020.
