Palumbo Superyachts Sells Columbus S 50

ColumbusPalumbo Superyachts, yachting division of the Palumbo Group, is pleased to announce the sale of the new 50m motoryacht under the brand Columbus Yachts.
The owner, who already owns a motoryacht built by the Group, again chooses Palumbo Superyachts to give life to his new project.

Luca Dini Design signs exteriors and interiors of this new model, sold by Palumbo Superyachts after the new ISA Alloy 43m – also designed by Dini – now under construction in the Italian shipyard based in Ancona. Featuring numerous unprecedented solutions designed at the owner’s request, Columbus S 50 can accommodate eleven guests in five cabins on three decks and a total crew of eleven in seven cabins. Columbus S 50, with hull and superstructure built in aluminium, will be 49.50m long, with a beam of 9.15m and a gross tonnage of 499GT. Driven by two 2,000hp MTU engines, Columbus S 50 will have a top speed of 20 knots in semi-displacement mode, a cruising speed of 15 knots and a transoceanic range.

Designer Luca Dini worked in close cooperation with Palumbo Superyachts’ engineering department to build a model that accurately meets the needs of the owner. The exterior design expresses dynamism while maintaining well-balanced proportions, conveying an original style without being over-the-top and ensuring that its aesthetic will never go out of fashion. The pronounced edges and facets give the Columbus S 50 sleek lines, as well as making it easier to improve the layout of the interior spaces. Suffice to say that the bow area, for example, can comfortably accommodate the entire crew.

The owner’s desire to enjoy as much natural light as possible in the interiors has been fulfilled by the use of extensive glazed surfaces on all decks and particularly on either side of the main deck, where the outer gunwale is designed in such a way as to enjoy a complete view of the sea, even when sitting on the sofas in the lounge. But the tailor-made technical solutions requested by the owner are the truly distinctive feature of Columbus S 50. Construction of the new superyacht will soon start in the Italian facilities based in Ancona, and the delivery to her owner is scheduled in Summer 2020.
