Moran Yacht & Ship has announced the sale of the first Mangusta Oceano 50. The Moran Yacht & Ship new construction team negotiated the build contract, negotiated the technical specifications, and will supervise the build. The 49.9-metre 499 GT displacement yacht, scheduled for a 2021 delivery, is the latest in a string of recent sales for the Overmarine Group.

The Mangusta Oceano 50 is very much an in-house project, with Overmarine’s teams devising the naval architecture, interior and exterior design, with the latter happening in collaboration with the Monaco-based designer Alberto Mancini.
Mangusta’s Oceano 50 model is versatile in terms of layout and can include up to six staterooms depending on the owner’s wishes. Up to 11 crew sleeping in six cabins can attend to guests’ every need on board the yacht.
The exterior spaces on board the Oceano 50 are expansive, starting with the aft cockpit, which features sofas formed in a square, protected by a teak shell. The yacht comes with a sizeable, fully-equipped beach club and with a wide cockpit found just above the garage, which has been moved forward. When free of tenders, the garage can be turned into a counter-current swimming pool, and a Jacuzzi on the sundeck creates an ideal relaxation space. Also on this sundeck is al-fresco dining area for 12 protected from the elements by a full-beam hard top.
