Family-Owned From The Outset
Mangusta, a stylish Italian line of boats, originated in 1985. The sleek brand was started by members of the Balducci family, and is still family-owned. The shipyard facilities are based in Viareggio, Lucca, Italy, and operate as just one of more than 15 companies in the Overmarine Group S.p.A. family.
With several top lines, the Mangusta brand offers luxury as well as long-range travel models, and has completed more than 300 vessels delivered to-date.
Multiple Production Facilities
The Mangusta line is manufactured in three production facilities in Italy and covers a total of 190,000 square meters of covered and uncovered space.
The metal-working yard, Darsena Pisana, is the facility in Pisa where several yachts up to 70 meters can be fabricated simultaneously in the company’s 22,000 square meter facility. The property also houses a showroom and technical department.
Headquarters are located in the shipyard in Viareggio where the Mangusta Maxi Open models are built. Home to the design team, this yard includes both the creative and technical arms of the company’s yacht development and offers on-site continued care with follow-up service for after yacht sales.
Top-of-the-line composite construction, engineering, and technology are housed in the production yard in Massa.
Just Some Mangusta Awards
The Mangusta GranSport 45 has been awarded top model several times, including being named for a Boat International’s World Superyacht Award in 2020. Honored as the semi-displacement or planing motor yacht below 500 gross tons and 35m and above, the Overmarine facility enlisted Studio Plana as naval architect, Pierluigi Ausonio as engineer, and Alberto Mancini as exterior designer for the job.
The aluminum Gransport was honored above five other yachts in the diverse category and was noted for the ability to cruise at 29 knots and have long-range efficiency with a 4,200 nautical mile capability.
Overmarine Group’s Mangusta 110 was a finalist for the 10th annual Boat International’s World Superyacht Awards in 2015 in the semi-displacement or planing motor two-deck motor yacht in the 30m to 37.99m category (the category included raised pilothouse designs). The Mangusta 165 was a finalist for the World Superyacht Awards in 2011 and the Mangusta 130 was a finalist in 2013.
The ‘Barca dell’Anno’ award was bestowed on Overmarine Group's Mangusta 165E maxi open motor yacht Moonraker in 2014 and the yacht debuted at the Monaco Yacht Show.
Always a crowd-pleaser at boat shows, the debut Mangusta Oceano 42, M/Y Namastè, was awarded best of show by NBC Sports during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in 2018. Described as the most innovative design on display, the three-deck long-range Overmarine was designed by Alberto Mancini.
