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.
