Debuting at the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show, Overmarine’s Mangusta 132 did everything a proper Italian should. She turned heads with an irresistible line and impressive speed. She charmed attendees with chic technological details, like smart windows that go from clear to frosted with a touch of a button. She captured hearts with a combination of craftsmanship and comfort that seductively whispered, “I’m Italian.” As if we couldn’t tell.
The fourth in a line of gorgeous, maxi open yachts to debut over the past two years from the Ovarmarine headquarters in Viareggio, the 132’s exterior design from Stefano Righini and the in-house team is enhanced by interiors from the Overmarine interior design department. An array of sumptuous materials, the details of luxurious Crema Luna marble, flawless white leather, warm hardwoods, and bright steel underscore her clean, modern line.
The racy profile of the 132 does not mislead, as this chic yacht’s top speed has been known to push past the 36 knot mark. For those that want to get somewhere fast, the 132’s three Rolls Royce MTU 16V 2000 series engines fitted with the Kamewa waterjet propulsion system make it possible. Overmarine makes it perfect.
Taking the hydrodynamic technology from the Mangusta 165, the high-performance hull design improves efficiency at lower speeds as well as improving comfort at high speed. Zero speed gyroscope stabilizers contribute to the smooth ride, both at anchor and underway. Exceeding the owner’s request for a smooth comfortable ride at speed, joined by an efficient, lower speed choice, both in comfort and luxury, the 132 is an icon that is customizable for a perfect fit with many yachting lifestyles.
The deck plan is well thought out, defining every space with purpose and style. The long flybridge accommodates a bar with fixed stools and sunbathing settees. A dining area aft delivers great night sky viewing. The space can be designated as a private area for the owner’s cabin, or can be fitted with a second helm station accommodating the more sociable commander.
The open plan of the main foredeck invites guests for a sun session on the generous sunpads, backed up with a deck-wide sofa and social niche two steps below, with U-shaped settee and tables. A wrap around deck allows crew to maneuver without disturbing the party.
Aft of the sun area, deep windows run the length of the main salon, bringing flattering natural light into the dining and lounge areas. In a single sweep of glazing along the salon, the 132 accomplishes both haute style and an uninterrupted view. Light oak flooring contrasts with walnut dining table accented in steel. Rich walnut panels provide additional contrast with the pale oak. Four strategically-placed skylights create the ideal niche for early morning activities.
On the aft deck, an L-shaped lounge and an al fresco dining table for eight offer a panoramic view under the protection of the overhang. Beyond the seating, aft-facing sunpads lift to reveal a large Jacuzzi, adding yet another outdoor area with space for several guests to gather.
From the bridge, a staircase to port delivers guests to the lower deck salon, fitted with a large TV boasting surround-sound. The deckhead, enveloped in white leather and LED lighting, mimics the feel of the main deck salon.
The 132 accommodates ten guests in five cabins served by six crew. A full beam master with study and en suite bath claims the aft, fitted with large windows in series, both port and starboard. Lacquered cabinetry and lightly-hued textiles work with the stately headroom breathing an exceptionally spacious feel into the cabin.
Customization of the guest cabins configures either an additional three or four cabins, with a double VIP forward, and a choice of either two doubles and a twin, or substitution of one of the double cabins for a salon area.
Furthest aft, a garage for the tender and water toys lifts adjacent to the swim deck. Accessed by port and starboard staircases, the look is elegant, efficient, and dramatic.
A sporty yacht with a sophisticated profile, the Mangusta 132 serves many purposes well. Whether slow cruising the coast or quickly traveling port to port, the luxuries on board will comfort and delight a bevy of guests.
