Italian builder Mangusta Yachts has used the occasion of the Miami Yacht Show to reveal it has begun construction on the first Gransport 33, the “entry level” model of the Gransport line.
Started on spec, the hull has already been laminated and the finished yacht will be ready for delivery in spring 2020. The 33.3 metre yacht will make its debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September 2020.
Featuring exterior and interior design by Alberto Mancini, the Gransport 33 sports “classic design, essential lines and a good balance between interior and exterior spaces,” according to commercial director Francesco Frediani.
The design incorporates many of the features seen on bigger models of the Gransport line, including a Jacuzzi, infinity pool forward and outdoor lounge. It will also feature a large flybridge and extended cockpit.
The propulsion package of four Volvo Penta D13 and Volvo Penta IPS pods will provide a top speed of 26 knots, with a maximum range of 1000 nautical miles.
“The IPS installation is very compact and gives the possibility to offer more space for owners and guests,”Frediani added.
“The system is user friendly and can be used by non-professional drivers. Most of the owners, in this size of yachts, like to drive the boats themselves or like the idea.”
Mangusta also revealed it has several other new projects at various stages of development. These include the 50 metre Oceano 50, an explorer and the Gransport 65.
