Lion tamers

El Leon, the first ship of the Overmarine Group's new aluminium fast displacement line, has been launched.

09 May 2018


The new Mangusta flagship combines long range and optimised performance in displacement mode with high speeds.

The launching ceremony took place in the Navicelli area, in Pisa, in the presence of the owner, his family and friends, the City authorities, both of Pisa and Viareggio, the Balducci family and everyone who contributed to the creation of the vessel.

“In the automotive sector the definition of GranSport is synonymous with high performance and optimal comfort” stated Maurizio Balducci, CEO of Overmarine Group. “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.”

“The El Leon début makes us truly happy and proud. We launched an extraordinarily beautiful ship, which introduces herself to the world with unique features.”



The Mangusta GranSport line is designed by Alberto Mancini. Its lines reflect the muscular and dynamic aesthetic typical of Mangusta, but with the aggressiveness suited to a sporty RPH yacht.

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 brings light through glass skylight on the bottom. On the stern, the rotation of the central and lateral doors open to the 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.

Movement between interior the exterior flows through vast windowed surfaces in a concept of fluidity and continuity that characterises the entire vessel.

Thanks to four MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines and the presence of stabilisers, El Leon can reach a top speed of almost 30 knots, in maximum comfort, with low consumption and an autonomy of approximately 3,500 miles.
