Oceanic Coupé “crossover yacht” line from Columbus

Oceanic Coupé “crossover yacht” line from Columbus

Italian Palumbo Group has introduced its new Columbus Yachts Oceanic Coupé 45 and 50 metre yacht designs. The new semi-custom yacht line is designed in collaboration with Studio Vafiadis and Associates, based on a concept created by Stefano Inglese Vafiadis.

The Columbus Oceanic Coupé yacht line is inspired by car design, specifically crossover automobiles that combine traits of sport utility vehicles and sportier cars. In this vein, the Oceanic Coupé is imbues the sporty, three-deck layout of an open yacht with a spacious layout and large volumes more common on a traditional motor yacht.

Columbus is seeking to target both the Asian and US markets with this new design. As these two markets can have very different needs, the flexibility available in the layouts of the Oceanic Coupé yachts is key. The galley can be had either on the main deck – as American clients often prefer – or down on the lower deck near the crew area. The four staterooms on the lower deck can also be easily converted into a spa, gym, cinema – or for the Asian market, maybe a mahjong room.

In both the 45 and 50 metre Oceanic Coupé yachts, the owner’s stateroom is set on the main deck forward, enjoying excellent views through the large cat-eye windows.

The Oceanic Coupé 45, seen here, will have plenty of room for entertaining indoors and out, including a plunge-worthy rectangular pool on the bow. Dual helm stations will allow her to be driven from up top or the enclosed bridge deck.

Matching her sporty looks, performance is slated to reach a top speed of 21 knots and cruise at 17 knots powered by twin MTU 12V 4000 M93L engines, with a range of 3,800 nautical miles.

In business for nearly half a century, the Palumbo Group is set to launch its new Classic 57m and its next Sport Hybrid 40m on May 16. The builder also has a 70 metre Columbus Sport Oceanic in 2016.
