Shipyard Spotlight: MANGUSTA YACHTS

The Essence of Mangusta
To understand the true essence of Mangusta Yachts, it is crucial to understand where the roots of this luxury builder originated. Mangusta yachts began in 1985 when the Balducci family set to change the status quo when it comes to yachting. Named after the mongoose, Mangusta represents strength, power, and performance.  

The History of Mangusta yachts

The Mangusta story begins with Giuseppe Balducci. Born in the heart of Limite Sull ‘Arno, Italy, Balducci pioneered the Overmarine Group, later being joined by his children, Maurizio, and Katia Balducci. According to Balducci, “We are a team deeply rooted in our Italian heritage, always loyal to our original values, yet able to keep our gaze aimed towards the future.”  

The Original 

Revolutionizing the yachting industry, Mangusta first launched the iconic Mangusta 80 in the 1990s. Upon release of the Mangusta 80, “open” yachts of that volume were virtually unheard of. Shattering industry standards, Mangusta paved way for large, high-performance sports yachts. Comfortable, livable, versatile; Mangusta yachts have it all.

More recently, Mangusta has engineered its brand new GranSport line. Setting a new standard when it comes to high-performance luxury yachts.  

Beyond the Imagination

The Mangusta Maxi Open takes performance to a new level. Boasting a maximum speed (at half load) of 37 knots, the Mangusta Maxi Open was built for speed. Propulsion equipped with powerful waterjets, the Mangusta Maxi Open is the new definition of what is possible in the world of luxury performance yachts. Described by Mangusta as, “One step beyond your imagination,” the Maxi Open also features ample indoor space, allowing for a spacious and comfortable cruising experience.
