The Mangusta Oceano 50 has won the prestigious “Best of Show” award, bestowed by an elite panel of judges to the best yacht on display at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, the number-one boat show in the United States, with over 1,300 boats showcased during the 63rd edition that just ended.
This award is given to the most innovative yacht exhibited at the show in terms of performance, design, technological solutions and architecture, selected by a jury of experts. Overmarine Group’s CEO Maurizio Balducci, and Overmarine Group USA’s President Stefano Arlunno were both present at the award presentation ceremony.
The Jury’s attention was drawn to this yacht by her generous exterior and interior volumes, including the beach area that opens up onto three connected terraces at the sea level. The most admired feature, though, was the huge forward area on the main deck, hosting a full-beam custom infinity pool. The judges were also fascinated by the master stateroom, located on the main deck, with its refined, sophisticated interiors and the exclusive fully-automated balcony overlooking the sea, which can be easily operated by the Owner.
“We are very proud of this acknowledgment, considering that we were the first to win the award on its first edition and now, just 5 years later, we have been awarded again with the Mangusta Oceano 50: American people love Mangusta and Mangusta loves America. The Americas have become the reference market for our Group, and our success was no surprise, since all our new models were developed taking into account the tastes and preferences of American clients", stated Stefano Arlunno.
