    The latest incarnation of a James Bond yacht, motor yacht MOONRAKER looks as one would expect the yacht of a secret agent to look:  sleek, sexy, and oh so fast.  It’s easy to imagine fictional Agent 007 socializing with friends onboard this magnificent yacht, with her open-deck layout, numerous entertainment amenities and comfortable seating and dining areas.  Fortunately, the Mangusta 165 yacht MOONRAKER is the real deal, and not a movie prop, and she can be rented for Bahamas yacht charter vacations.

    Several of the James Bond movies were filmed in the Bahamas, and the yacht MOONRAKER Mangusta seems as if she were built specifically to explore this warm-water archipelago.  With a shallow draft of 1.7 meters (about 5 1/2 ft.), this yacht can easily get into shallow anchorages that other Superyachts can only visit via the use of a dinghy or towed tender.  Traversing the vast ocean area that makes up the hundreds of islands of the Bahamas is a snap for this super-fast yacht, as she is powered to heart-pounding maximum speed of 42 knots, thanks to her powerful triple 4,609hp MTU/Kamewa engines.  Where other yachts can take a day to reach a remote anchorage, this yacht can arrive in 2 to three hours…

    Diamonds Are Forever

    Built by the large-yacht performance experts at Italy’s Overmarine shipyard, the 49.9 meter Mangusta 165E open superyacht features exterior styling by Stefano Righini, and interiors by the yard’s own design team.  This is the  8th Mangusta 165 model to come out of the builder’s yard, but she is the first in the new, “E” series, which stands for, “Evolution.”

    Exterior seating and entertainment areas include an aft deck, foredeck and flybridge deck.  The open-air aft deck with comfortable couch seating and an al-fresco dining table under the protected overhang of the sun deck above.  The aft seating area and the dining area are separated by a small wall which hides dual screen pop up TV’s.

    The yacht’s bow area is home to an amazing multi-function foredeck, featuring a Jacuzzi tub, sunken al-fresco dining area, and further forward large sun pads to soak in the warm Caribbean sunshine. Large, pop up dual flat panel TV’s separate the Jacuzzi from the dining area, and can be viewed from either side – very unique on a megayacht foredeck.

    Additional open air seating is located on the flybridge, with a wet bar, BBQ grill, large glass dining table, and plenty of built-in couch seating.   All decks are linked to a sound/music system with a party mode that can synchronize music on the aft and foredeck with the salon.

    To enhance the superyacht experience, optional sun awnings can be installed during the charter on both the aft and foredeck areas…

    It’s hard to know where to begin when describing the yacht’s interior.  The first thought that comes to mind is, “This looks like the finest suite at a bespoke luxury boutique hotel in Cannes or Miami Beach.” Tasteful and stylish, there are so many textures and fine materials to touch and see – beautiful stone, rich lacquered woods,   luxurious leathers and so much more… Artistically, the onboard styling is accentuated by fine artwork, including original works by Picasso.

    The accommodation layout is designed to sleep up to eight guests in four cabins – a master suite, a VIP cabin and two double cabins. All  cabins are located on the yacht’s lower deck.   The double cabins feature queen beds while the VIP cabin offers an oversized queen bed.  The cabins are decorated in a Zen-peaceful scheme of beiges and creams.

    The large master suite is full beam – the width of the yacht – and features high ceilings that give the room an extra spacious feel. Polished wood floors and warm, neutral colors add to the tranquility felt in all of the cabins. The master features an opulent bathroom, with a large bathtub and rainfall aromatherapy shower with mood lighting.

    Also found on the lower deck is a cinema room and gym. The cinema features a large 65” TV and secret “candy drawers” loaded with snacks for an authentic movie theatre experience. The wall-to-wall plush sofa in the cinema can be converted to accommodate a single guest. The state-of-the-art gym has an adjacent Hammam/steam shower with mood lighting.

    Like the cabins, the main salon also features a neutral color scheme, but with darker tones in the unique grey stingray leather furniture and the cushions and blankets. The dining area seats up to ten guests and clear wine cabinets to the left and right of the table hold a large selection of vintage and premium wines. The combination of both single and bench leather seating each side of the table and a large, shimmering-glass piece of art on the forward wall creates a sophisticated atmosphere well-suited for fine dining.

    The visual standout of the main saloon is the magnificent bar, which seats up to five guests on high swivel stools. This is an ideal place for entertainment and socializing, with a large hidden TV that drops out and down from the ceiling, and built-in refrigerators designed to chill cocktail & beer glasses.

    The entire salon is bathed in natural light through oversized windows. This 165E Evolution model has larger windows than on the other 165 models as well a skylights in the high ceiling over the dining table.  A unique feature in the salon is the full size humidor cabinet, plus a small room next to the bar with two espresso machines.

    Where is Grand Bahama?

    Of course, there is more to a charter than a yacht’s onboard amenities.  A prime reason for selecting the Bahamas for a vacation is the ocean – a pool of shallow sandy-bottom warm water nestled around hundreds of small islands. This yacht’s onboard watertoy inventory is as impressive as her interior amenities. Guests can enjoy the use of a high speed jet tender, 2 waverunners, snorkel and Scuba gear, and 2 underwater scooters – just like James Bond rode in the Bahamas in the film, “Thunderball.”
