Overmarine Group On Launching The New 165E

By Ben Roberts

The Overmarine Group was founded in 1985 by the Balducci family, who still sit at the head of the company. After recently launching the Mangusta 165E, Francesco Frediani, Commercial Director of the Overmarine Group, joined us at the 2014 China Rendez-Vous to explain this milestone launch for the family-run Italian brand.

“It’s a great story because Mangusta is our number 8th but the first of a new kind […] We call it the Mangusta 165E [for] Evolution, due to new features like big windows, a new shape for the flybridge […] and we also improved the performances.”

Over-achieving when it comes to performance, the 165E reached a top speed of 44 knots with complete stability and unrivalled results during sea trials.

With over 300 yachts sold to date, this deeply traditional company has pioneered the construction of state-of-the-art maxi Maxi Opens which perfectly combine innovation and technology, high quality, luxury and artisan features, a top performance and safety, spacious areas and on board comfort, Italian style and made-to-measure interiors.
