Hull and superstructure set to be joined on Columbus S50

Hull and superstructure set to be joined on Columbus S50

Palumbo Superyachts has revealed that the hull of its 49.5 metre new-build motor yacht project, the Columbus S50, has been moved to the outfitting shed to be joined to the superstructure.

The yacht remains on track for a summer 2020 delivery before making her worldwide debut at that year’s Monaco Yacht Show in September.

Styled inside and out by Florence-based designer Luca Dini, the new model was commissioned by a repeat client and is being built from an aluminium hull and superstructure in Ancona.

Key features include a vertical bow to increase the amount of interior space available. The saloon has been designed to allow in 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 previously said: “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 of over 3,000 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 15 knots.

Accommodation is for up to 12 guests split across five cabins and a 499GT interior. Meanwhile, the crew quarters is suitable for a staff of up to nine 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.
