The Mangusta 105 is a popular model. More than 30 have been built. Ours was the first of the Mark 2s, with a completely restyled superstructure molding, but the winning formula is otherwise not much altered: big engines, big interiors, and a big personality.
Our 105 was fitted with an impressive tonnage of entertainment equipment, and finished in a combination of gloss cherry and striped mahogany, with wenge flooring, cream carpets, and leather linings and trim. Quality was exemplary, even in hidden corners. The insides of lockers and drawers were as beautifully veneered and lacquered as the outsides.
Below decks, the Mangusta 105 has a fairly conventional layout, with a vast, ten-window owner’s cabin amidships, a VIP suite in the bow, and twin-berth guest en suites to port and starboard, each with an extra fold-down Pullman berth. Headroom right through the lower accommodation is an impressive 6’8″, and the berths are all full size—even the singles are 30 inches wide.
