Mangusta Yachts are very fast motor yachts able to reach speeds in excess of 50 knots and cruise at over 30. Mangustas are open bridge style sleek motor yachts and are built at the Overmarine shipyard which is based in Viareggio, Italy.
Mangustas have a length between 72 feet and 165 feet and are known for their speed. The complete Mangusta range includes the 72, 80 hard top, 105, 108, 130, 148 Oceano and the 165′ flagship.
The Mangusta fleet is an exclusive line of sports boats, many of which are today for sale in the French and Italian Mediterrean. Peter Bennett, the CEO of Blue Water Yachting, states that luxury yachting will prevail, the sun will continue to shine, and although the world is gripped in a recession, the worlds rich will continue to charter and own the most exclusive toy on offer in the world today. That toy is often referred to as a Mangusta, and they are generally owned by actors, sports people, celebrities, and successful entrepreneurs.
Examples of mangustas include, The Yacht Zeus, a Mangusta 165′, Motor Yacht Yianis, a Mangusta 130′, Sealyon a Mangusta 105′, and Equilibrium a Mangusta 100′. These yachts are based on the idyllic French Riviera, are available for a luxury charter holiday during the summer of 2009 in addition to being up for sale. Now is the time buy, because in the words of Warren Buffet, when you can see the first swallows of springtime, you are to late to buy. However if you can’t quite gi there right now, Yanis is a yacht beautifully presented in a contemporary style, with 5 wonderfully spacious cabins and is perfect for yacht charter especially for the overstressed executive, who is worried about the market downturn and the depression in the world.
