Overmarine Group have announced the sale of the 11th hull in their popular Mangusta 165 series, set to be delivered to a European client at the beginning of 2017. This particular Magusta 165 is the second in their E “Evolution” version of the model.
What sets the ‘E’ version apart from her other sisters is a new MTU power train with 4 MTU 16V M94 engines powering 4 Rolls Royce/Kamewa waterjets. The new 2000 series engines are smaller and lighter than the 4000’s previously used which means considerably less consumption at speeds between 20 and 30 knots. The engines are also linked to the 4 Seakeeper stabilisers and can be used when at anchor or underway. Another unique technological feature on this particular model is the addition of a dynamic positioning system, allowing to stay in position without the use of an anchor.
“This [sale] confirms the success of the model, which is unique in terms of performance and characteristics, thanks to her high technical content, exceptional onboard comfort and ability to stir up emotions in those aboard,” had Francesco Frediani, Group Commercial Directo to say about the project.
