Columbus Yachts' first Crossover 42 explorer sold

20 November 2023 • Written by Dea Jusufi

Columbus Yachts, a brand of Palumbo Superyachts, has announced the sale of its first Crossover 42 to an American client. With delivery slated for 2025, the 42-metre explorer is currently under construction at Palumbo's shipyard in Savona, Italy.

Hydro Tec is responsible for the Crossover 42's "modern and muscular" exterior, featuring a concentration of volume in the bow area (as is typical of explorers) and flat, tapered stern sections.

Accommodation is for 12 guests, including a full-beam master cabin with a central bed, wardrobe, office desk and bathroom with double sink. There is further space for nine crew. While full details are yet to be disclosed, Milanese studio Hot Lab has styled her interiors, with notable projects including Bilgin's Eternal Spark and Mondomarine's Provocateur (ex. Ipanema).

The explorer's "extremely flexible dimensions" are seen best in the cockpit, able to accommodate a large tender with a built-in stern crane as well as a 10-square-metre swimming pool, arranged with sunpads and sofa seating. The sundeck will be equipped with a bar and a table, able to be converted into a sunlounger if necessary.

Powered by twin CAT C32 engines, the Crossover 42 can reach a maximum speed of over 14 knots, a cruising speed of 12 knots and a range of over 5,500 nautical miles when pared back to 10 knots.

Last month, the Italian shipyard also sold the first unit in its 37-metre Atlantique series.
