The Mangusta is a deep vee hull performance powerboat for outboard(s) or stern-drive. The clean design of this 18 degree hull delivers powerful performance and quick acceleration. The hull material is a major performance factor: a composite fiberglass-plywood-epoxy hull is stronger and lighter than an equivalent fiberglass production boat. The Mangusta hull weight is only 875 lbs.

There are three powering options: single or twin outboards in a well or on a bracket and single stern-drive inboard.

The type of power defines the size of the cockpit. Seating can combine bucket seats, benches and back to back (fold down) seats.

Other options are fuel tanks: saddle tanks can be added to increase the fuel capacity to 120 gallons.

Different sizes of inboards can be used, max. engine weight is 700 lbs. Engine beds spacing, motorwell dimensions, fuel tank installation etc. are shown and follow ABYC (USCG) industry standards.

This boats transom is designed for a standard 25" shaft. The transom can easily be modified to accept other shaft lengths.

There is access to the space under the foredeck but height is limited and it would not be reasonable to plan a cabin there. The forward part of the boat can be built as a bow rider (not shown on the plans).
