The Mangusta Gransport 45 triumphed at the World Superyacht Awards 2020 in the category “Semi-Displacement or Planing Motor Yachts below 500GT – 35M and Above”.
The World Superyacht Awards, organised by the international publishing group Boat International, are among the most prestigious awards in the boating sector, and are bestowed to recently-designed yachts that have distinguished themselves because of their technical features, their style, and their innovative solutions in technology and design.
The Mangusta GranSport 45 is a yacht entirely built in aluminium and featuring stylish and yet very sporty lines. Her fast displacement hull, her propulsion system with three 2600 HP engines, and her transmission - 2 shaft lines with two propellers and 1 waterjet - allow her to deliver outstanding flexibility. Indeed, this propulsion system makes the yacht incredibly versatile, allowing her Owner to cruise fast across the Mediterranean sea during the day and at low speed during the night, as well as to enjoy long crossings, including transoceanic ones, always in the utmost comfort.
The Jury, composed of owners, highly experienced captains, and renowned yacht designers, was conquered by this innovative craft, where style and impressive interior brightness and volumes go hand in hand with cutting-edge technological solutions that embody the purest Mediterranean spirit and lifestyle while delivering unmatched onboard wellbeing and comfort for all guests.
Here is the Jury’s motivation: “The 45.3-metre yacht provides excellent seagoing comfort and an extremely long range of 4,200 nautical miles. The yacht’s extensive deck areas were admired for the good use made of every square meter, while the beach club stern, with its three openings to the sea, was seen as most desirable. Large windows in the main saloon, some opening to the side decks, made for another light and airy space, with good connectivity to the surrounding seascape. The yacht satisfied all the features that an owner with a “need for speed” might demand”.
The Mangusta GranSport 45 has been designed by the Shipyard’s technical department in cooperation with engineer Pierluigi Ausonio and designer Alberto Mancini. The Mangusta Gransport line also includes two 33 m and 54 m-long vessels.
This prestigious award is a precious acknowledgement of the outstanding work of Overmarine Group who was able to build a one-of-a-kind vessel. This is the third international award won by the Mangusta GranSport 45 since she made her debut on the market.
