Superyacht of the Week: The new Mangusta 132

Overmarine has turned a page with the creation of their new Mangusta 132. The athletic appearance of the Maxi Open series has remained, leaving little doubt as to the vessel’s true intentions. Yet, the Italian shipyard managed to develop their latest launch to not only meet, but surpass owners’ strict requirements of safety, comfort and above all, an innovative use of space. Guests can confidently step onboard knowing that the Mangusta 132 will carry them to their next destination is luxury, speed and in true Italian style.

With the new Mangusta 132, Overmarine wanted to design a yacht according to her owner’s wishes of being able to spend quality time together with his family onboard. Having to experience the sensation of being close to the ocean itself at al times, whether spending time inside or outside, was a crucial design factor to constantly keep in mind.

This was achieved by keeping exterior spaces as simplistic and uninterrupted as possible. Separate areas are available for guests to enjoy socialising or simply relaxing in the sun while being attended to by the yacht’s professional crew of 6. From either of these areas guests can easily reach the interior, with the yacht’s layout designed in such a way that one is able to move between the aft deck, sun deck and foredeck without ever being feeling constricted.

A large area for sun bathing on the aft deck is accompanied by smaller areas for socialising and dining. The aft facing sun pad opens up to reveal a large Jacuzzi. Here one also finds an 8-seating breakfast table and a comfortable L-shaped lounge perfect for late afternoon reading experiences while hiding from the elements.

Above, on sun deck, Overmarine made the most of the available space by designing a stretched flybridge that consists of a bar area, two forward sun bathing settees and a smaller dining area where guests can enjoy a candle-lit dinner beneath a starry sky. This deck increases the yacht’s entertainment capabilities with a layout suited for larger groups that is easily linked to main aft deck below.

A well-designed raised platform on the foredeck presents another exterior-escape possibility. Guests can enjoy uninterrupted late afternoon sundowners with a wrap around deck for the crew to move about without having to disturb the guests. This open-plan deck is another example of how the Mangusta 132 can have guests feel at home in her own innovative way.

Being the owner’s second Mangusta yacht, he knew exactly which areas to develop in order to enhance the on board experience for him and his family. A focus on introducing great amounts of natural light was a priority. Here in the main salon full height glazed windows were installed and offers stunning views from the comfort of the large dinning and lounge areas. Sand-coloured Oak flooring has been paired with natural Walnut paneling to create a luxurious villa lifestyle inside. Steel accents were are used to cut through the natural elements and reminds one of the yacht’s modern and performance orientated nature.

The forward lounge area is a wonderful setting to spend early Sunday mornings in port or at anchor with this space brilliantly lit up by four generous sky lights above and wide windows on either side. The bridge area up forward is fitted with smart LCD-embedded glass panels that allow it to turn from clear to opaque with a touch of a button, offering guests privacy whenever it is called for.

A staircase to the port side of the bridge leads guests down to the lower deck where one is greeted with a comfortable second salon and entertainment area with a large TV and high quality surround-sound system. The contemporary luxurious theme is continued here with snow white leather deckhead panels and a smart use of LED lighting to carry the illuminated feeling experienced on main deck above.

It is on the lower deck where guests will find their well-appointed cabins. A spacious VIP cabin is placed in the bow section, with a double and a twin cabin on either side of the corridor, providing sleeping quarters for eight guests in total.

The full beam master is situated aft, and opens up into a small study area before reaching the en suite cabin. A series of large windows on either side of the cabin paired with light fabrics and lacquered surfaces again makes this space feel exceptionally large with excellent headroom and mobility throughout the cabin.

Crema Luna marble inserts have been used in the master bathroom, as with all other guest cabins. Walnut cabinetry is found here, continuing the natural luxurious feel of the suite.

The Mangusta 132 is fitted with MTU and Rolls Royce/Kamewa’s latest generation technology to offer top performance capabilities. Three MTU 16V 2000 series engines supply her two Kamewa waterjets with enough power to push the yacht to a top speed of 34 knots. At a reduced, more economical cruising speed the Mangusta 132 is able to reach 550nm.

Even though the latest addition to the Mangusta range might seem like a strict performance-orientated day boat, the new 132 has proven herself to be so much more. True engineering and an innovative display of design have gone into creating this yacht; a statement clients can experience first hand when she will be officially presented at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.
