The first unit of the Mangusta 104 REV, the innovative model representing the new era of Mangusta Maxi Open yachts, was launched this morning.
This is a yacht that made the news even before hitting the water; indeed, the 104 REV was moved to the launch venue at night, driving through the narrow streets of Viareggio and stirring the curiosity of many locals, who thus had the privilege of getting a preview of the first hull in the new Open line.
The Mangusta 104 REV is a revolutionary yacht - the entry level in the iconic Maxi Open range, in which Overmarine has been an undisputed leader for over 35 years, with than 300 yachts built in this timespan. Thanks to the joint work of the Group's Engineering Department and designer Igor Lobanov, this vessel's sporty and slender lines preserve the Mangusta DNA, but reinterpret it in a modern key.
“The launch of this yacht today makes us extremely proud and marks the start of a new chapter in the history of Mangusta Open yachts. This is indeed the first model in a new series of vessels, under the name of Mangusta REV, that encompasses our thirty-year expertise in the construction of this type of cruisers, while also featuring restyled exterior lines and a different way of interpreting the interiors, where wide glass surfaces become key design elements. This launch has taken place just a few days before the official presentation of this line's new flagship, which we are firmly convinced will be welcomed enthusiastically", says the Group's CEO Maurizio Balducci. This unit has been sold to an American client, who was charmed by the new Maxi Open range - a success proving that the American market is increasingly thriving and keeps an eye on the innovations introduced in the Mangusta fleet. All Group lines - including the latest models - are now represented overseas.
“We are delighted to be announcing the sale of this first Mangusta 104 REV unit, on the occasion of her launch. The Client has known the Mangusta brand and appreciated its outstanding quality and reliability for a long time. This vessel comes with a number of features that make her perfect overseas - from the spacious outdoor areas, typical of all Mangusta yachts, to the limited draught, allowing for fast cruising in the Bahamas in winter or the Hamptons in the summer” comments Stefano Arlunno, President Mangusta Americas, who managed and secured the sale. Other distinctive elements on this cruiser are the wide glass surfaces flawlessly integrated in her powerfully aggressive profile - a true engineering masterpiece.
These see-through surfaces result in outstanding visibility while also allowing the vessel to be classified in the BV and MCA classes for commercial registration. Light pervades all interiors, not only on the main deck - where the cosy, sophisticated salon is surrounded by ceiling-high windows - but also on the lower deck, which can accommodate up to 10 guests in 4 airy cabins - the full-beam master stateroom, a VIP cabin, and two guest cabins. As is the case on each and every Mangusta yacht, the exteriors and interiors form a smooth, harmonious continuum, maximising the concept of lifestyle meant as an unforgettable onboard life experience. The Owners and their guests will be able to enjoy maximum relaxation and privacy in the many areas available onboard, including - among others - the comfortable sunbathing area, located forward, and the sundeck, which is seamlessly integrated in the profile and unravels around the radar arch, resulting in an essential, assertive look. The sundeck consists of a relaxation area furnished with a comfy U-shaped sofa and the second pilot station.
The aft cockpit door opens completely, connecting the salon to the exteriors to create a dining area where guests can indulge in pleasant convivial moments. Hidden behind the stylish aft door, the garage can fit a tender up to 5 metres and a 3-seat jet-ski. The Mangusta 104 REV comes with 2 MTU 16V2000M96L engines and as many waterjets, pushing her to a maximum speed of 35 knots, noiselessly and without the slightest vibrations. At the cruising speed of 25 knots, the yacht can boast a range of 370 nautical miles. Seakeeper gyro stabilizers allow her to deliver impressive performances and comfort both when cruising, even in choppy seas, and at anchor.
This first unit will be delivered to her Owner by the end of July. The next, available for sale, is scheduled for delivery in summer 2022.
