Columbus S50 sold by Palumbo Superyachts

Palumbo Superyachts has announced that it has sold a 49.5 metre new-build motor yacht project, the Columbus S50, which is due for delivery in summer 2020.

Styled inside and out by Luca Dini, this new model was commissioned by a repeat client and will be built from an aluminium hull and superstructure in Ancona, the Italian yard added.

Key features include a vertical bow to increase the amount of interior space available. The saloon has been designed to as much natural light as possible, while the lowered gunwhales will ensure great views out to sea, even when seated on the large sofas.

In a statement, the yard added: “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.”

Power will come from a pair of 2,000hp MTU engines for a top speed of 20 knots and a transoceanic range at a cruising speed of 15 knots.

Accommodation is for up to 11 guests split across five cabins and a 499GT interior. Meanwhile, the crew quarters is suitable for a staff of up to 11 people. Further details are being kept under wraps for now, with the exact layout as yet unclear, but the rendering above hints at a superyacht spa pool on the foredeck and an extensive skylounge.

Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the ISA Alloy 43 — another Luca Dini design, due to launch in 2019.
