Two new-build Columbus superyachts for sale by Merle Wood

Currently under construction at the Columbus Shipyard in Italy, the new 61 metre, steel-hulled superyacht Columbus 199 designed by Tommaso Spadolini is a new joint central agency with Bassam Chahine at Merle Wood & Associates and Mohammed Chehab at Lebanon-based brokers, Chehab Marine.

Construction has already started at the huge Columbus Shipyard in Naples and Bassam Chahine has an excellent team around him. “Anybody can produce a drawing of a boat,” says Bassam, “but not everybody can put a yacht together and it is important that we have a team of very experienced people with us,” he explains. “We’ll do a good job, I’m certain.”

Delivery of the Columbus 199 is scheduled for 2012. “The metal has been cut and this is a critical part of the process,” continues Bassam. “The hull should be completed in about six months and I can see the engines being installed in around 12 months time,” he adds. The asking price is €32.5 million. Another new build available through the same team and from the same yard is a 53.7m Columbus 177, asking €24.95 million and due in 2010.
