    I do not know if you all realized but the Overmarine/Mangusta website has been done over to a brand new one.

    I looked everywhere on YF and could not find this video of Moonraker so I thought I would try posting this one.

    I just came across this thread, can add some info. In 2009 I was aboard Hull 3 during sea trials for an opportunity to experience the design/hull performance as client project manager hired by a ranking Emirate family to build Hull 5, a 47m Mangusta Leopard under contract with Rodriguez Group that had stalled. Hull 3 at 200tonnes on 2nd sea trial made 36knots, 4 more than predicted speed powered by 3 MTU (9000HP) driving twin Ka-me-wa jets and a centre boster. Working with the Mangusta team was a great experience that provided me some very fond memories of a very generous and highly skilled people.
