Named after the tenacious mongoose, the Mangusta brand was founded to deliver fast cruising, open-designed superyachts to the global market. The yard was founded as part of the Overmarine Group by the Balducci family in 1985, and this thoroughly Italian brand is still owned and managed by the Balducci family, with Giuseppe Balducci’s two children Maurizio and Katia both integral members of the business. The first iconic model launched by the company was the Mangusta 80 Open, a 24m planing-hulled fast yacht powered by waterjets. With open vessels traditionally being small and sporty with little room for luxury comforts, this model was a game changer. As the brand developed, so did the size of its yachts, with over 90 of the 300 vessels launched to date measuring over 100ft.
With sporty and streamlined models which defines the Mangusta brand, over the past three decades the Overmarine Group has proven that the company’s vision and innovation set trends in the superyacht industry with a fleet destined to grow in the future.
With shipyard facilities located in Viareggio and Pisa, Mangusta now boasts a wide range of semi-custom luxury yacht models: MaxiOpen, GranSport and Oceano.
The three yacht lines give clients the opportunity to customize their yacht interior and layout to their tastes.The variety in Mangusta's yacht model lines enables clients to choose between a luxury motor yacht that offers high speeds or a large range capacity depending on the owner’s needs and lifestyle. The yard offers GRP, aluminum or steel hull building options.
Notable deliveries and models
Mangusta entered the displacement market in 2016 with the delivery of tri-deck motor yacht Namaste, the first steel-hulled yacht produced by Overmarine under the Mangusta Oceano line. More recently, the first full aluminum built Mangusta GranSport 45 was completed.
Design collaborations on models and projects
Alberto Mancini Yacht Design studio was in charge to develop the Oceano and GranSport lines with Mangusta adding several new yacht size models to the Italian shipyard’s range. Regarding the fast yachts range, Mangusta collaborated with Igor Lobanov Design to reinvent the iconic MaxiOpen line introducing the Mangusta 104 REV and Mangusta 165 REV. The MaxiOpen defines itself as the icon of luxury sports yachts, whereas the Oceano line offers more opportunities for explorations, thanks to more range capacity of up to 5,000 nautical miles. The GranSport marries the two concepts together, offering a luxury vessel with high speeds and a large range.
