54-metre yacht El Leon launched by Overmarine
54-metre superyacht from Mangusta Gransport 54 range El Leon has been launched by Overmarine at their Pisa facility, in the Navicelli area. It's the first ship of the Overmarine's new fast displacement line in aluminium. These are ships that can combine long range and high performance in displacement mode with high speeds. The delivery is scheduled to the owner later this year. Overmarine first revealed the concept for the Gransport range at the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show.
Maurizio Balducci, CEO of Overmarine Group stated: “In the automotive sector, GranSport is a synonym for high performance and optimal comfort. These principles have been the key starting point for the creation of the new line. We translated them and applied them to our business, giving life to a model that is an authentic combination of excellence between performance and autonomy.”
Mangusta Gransport 54 is designed by Alberto Mancini and has a sleek profile, a powerful engine, high cruising speed and ample and functional spaces on-board : this model can easily cover long distances, quickly and comfortably.
The lines are aerodynamic, balanced and straightforward : a stern of great character and extremely dynamic; air intakes created as slits straight into the aluminium, sloped windshields and uprights integrated to the rollbar. The Jacuzzi and swimming pool dominate the bow sun bridge and bring light into the Owner head through glass skylight on the bottom. On the stern, the rotation of the central and lateral doors gives life to a club on the sea; made of perfectly equipped terraces and beach area. The flybridge boasts a central bar designed to serve both spaces, towards the bow a dining area protected by a hard top and towards the stern a living area. All the exterior spaces can be used in full safety also during navigation.The interior areas communicate with the exterior ones through vast windowed surfaces in a concept of fluidity and continuity that characterises the entire vessel.
El Leon is fitted with four 2,600hp MTU engines and due to the presence of stabilisers, can reach a top speed of almost 30 knots, in maximum comfort, with low consumption and an autonomy of approximately 3,500 miles.
