This Mangusta 80 is not actually 80 feet. It is 27.7 meters from the beginning of the pulpit to the stern and that equals to 89 feet. The confusion stems from the different nomenclature for LOA. Americans measure LOA from the start of the bow pulpit to the stern. If the the swim plaTform is part of the hull, the swim platform is included in the American LOA. Europeans model their LOA measurements based on the English system which measures LOA from the same location on the bow as Americans but only to the rudder stems. Hence European LOA's are smaller than American LOA's. The problem with the 24 Meter Mangusta (80 Mangusta) is that it does not have rudders because of the Arneson surface drives, so we are not quite sure how the Italians came up with 80 feet. A possible explanation is that in the 1990's, this model was several feet shorter and in the early millennium they increased the LOA but kept the model name as Mangusta 80. Or, maybe the owners of the new models wanted to avoid marina fees.
This Mangusta is very special. It was owned by a 5 Star hotel for their VIP guests and it still has all the cutlery, crystal glassware and fine china from this hotel. In fact, the boat's name has not changed since she was launched in January 2005...Le St. James. And, since this yacht was ordered with the intent to use her commercially, she has all the redundancy in safety features of a yacht in class.
For the sun lovers in Florida that are afraid to get too much sun, she has awnings to cover every part of the deck including the bow sunning area. With Arneson surface drives and a 3.5 ft draft, this is the perfect boat to take to the Bahamas. The cruising speed of 40 knots, you can have breakfast in Bimini and lunch at the Atlantis Resort.
The pictures are a year old, and are from when the bottom was painted and new zincs added. The owner had the Arnerson drives serviced, joint covers replaced, all hydraulic lines checked, and the engines were serviced as well. All of the batteries were changed and both generators serviced.
