Many new launches succeed in wowing the Monaco Yacht Show audience, but one particular showstopper this year stands apart as one of the most spectacular, perhaps not in terms of size, but certainly in terms of interior volume is the new motor yacht Namaste, from Italian shipyard Overmarine.
Officially the first unit of the Mangusta Oceano 42 line, it marks the first splash into the long range market for a brand that has long been known for producing fast and furious boats.
Delivered to her owner in June, this tri-deck 43m beauty draws inspiration from the interiors of M/Y Moonraker, adding new innovations of its own, and boasts an interior bathed in light. For good reason was Namaste graced with the Best Layout for 38-45m yacht award at the World Yacht Trophies 2016.
The designer, Alberto Mancini, penned soft curves, angular lines and blending convex and concave contours into Namaste’s truly unique design, with private balconies, a huge beach area, infinity pool placed forward and an upper deck salon that serves as a media room or movie theatre. A total of 10 guests are accommodated across one owner, two double and two twin cabins, serviced by 7 crew.
