Mangusta Motor Yacht Excellence Sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 28.72 metre motor yacht Excellence, listed for sale by Ale Navarro at HMY Yacht Sales, has been sold in an in-house deal.
Built in GRP by Italian yard Overmarine to an in-house design, Excellence was delivered in 2018 as the fifth hull in the yard’s Mangusta 94 series and has only 255 hours on her engines. Accommodation is for six guests in three cabins comprising a master suite, VIP suite and twin, all with entertainment centres, Samsung television screens and en suite bathroom facilities.
Natural light has been given primary imprtance and streams in through the single glazing on the main deck and the huge windows in the lower deck saloon and owner’s suite.
Al fresco relaxation options include a compact sun deck and a spacious aft deck, complete with sun pads and an adjacent dinette and bar. The Rolls-Royce KaMeWa waterjet propulsion system, which keeps the draft down to just 1.6 metres, is a key part of this model’s popularity in the USA, allowing owners to navigate shallow bays and remote anchorages.
Her top speed is 38 knots and her power comes from two 2,600hp MTU 16V2000M96L diesel engines. For comfort at sea and in port, she is fitted with Seakeeper gyroscopic stabilisers.
Excellence was asking $6,400,000.
