vessel’s capacity and sea state. For them a super powerful RIB (rigid inflatable boat) or an open fast cruiser with hydro-jet propulsion and counter rotating Hi-speed surface propellers could be an obvious choice. In general terms we’re talking about 15 to 18 metre boats but not always! Scaling up to superyacht size to 24 metres for example there are in fact several yachts capable of exceeding 50 knots. Obviously a 24 metre speeding along at 50 plus knots is very different from a classic displacing yacht used for cruising. The silhouette the exterior lines, the exterior layout and the space available below decks will all be different. In other words she would be a mega-day cruiser or a mega-open type, which will maintain some of her functional features, notwithstanding the considerably larger size and in the main, a much more limited use, not only in terms of range but also in terms of time. In fact owners opting for these kinds of fast yachts want to reach their chosen waypoints, a tiny bay, a small island or even another harbour in the shortest possible time so as to enjoy the atmosphere and whatever else the newly reached spot has to offer. The owners of this type of yacht will not usually set out for extended cruises in the classic sense but will probably opt for day cruises and will return to the starting point the same day, or after a week end perhaps in maybe just two or with a couple of friends at the very most. And so we find mega-day cruisers or mega-open ones privileging outdoor ‘ living’ by day, while accommodation in the interiors is limited in terms of space mainly as far as cabins are concerned. Obviously the entire interior layout does not in any way penalize the exclusivity and ‘ raison d’etre’ of the yacht, where you can enjoy great comfort and luxury in addition to all the characteristics and must haves which go with yachts of considerable size and cost such as the f ollowing. So let’s take a look at several examples of yachts which fulfil the requirements mentioned and then we’ll pause to consider an interesting proposal from a pair of young and promising project designers who’ve reinterpreted a super fast 24 metre yacht which is big enough to still be an up market comfortable one capable of offering all the advantages that normally go with the kind. We have selected 4 diverse yachts capable of exceeding 50 knots which represent different ways of interpreting their versatility.
Mangusta 80 Overmarine’s leading model from Viareggio Italy is the Mangusta 80, she ranks as a super fast yacht while being aesthetically the most conventional of the four. The styling of a classy yet sporty motor yacht is all there and so are the attractive flowing lines which make up a pleasant silhouette from bow to stern. And possesses, as often found in large motor yachts, a well sheltered stern cockpit/ lounge area tucked aft of the coachroof situated amidships where we find the main living/ dining area and helm controls station. The interior layout offers ample spaces and four cabins with bathroom. Obviously displacement is slightly penalised, this is the largest of the four yachts we’re examining.
