Time has come for Palumbo Group to reveal two new Columbus Yachts creatures: a Classic 57m and the hull no. 2 of the Sport Hybrid 40m, for a total of 97m.
Everything is getting ready for the launch ceremony which will be held on the 16th of May in the Port of Naples, on one of Palumbo Group’s floating docks.
There are great expectations on the top secret project of the Classic 57m which, for privacy reasons, has never been revealed or shown before. The completely custom yacht is a full displacement steel and aluminum yacht, belonging to the Classic line inaugurated by my Prima, the first World Super Yacht Awards winning yacht branded Columbus Yachts.
All the 57m interiors are different from each other and may be described in one word as eclectic: a variety of particular woods, mirrors and marbles where mixed together in order to create a unique environment inspired by natural elements. The Sport Hybrid 40m instead, has been built on the proven platform of the amazing 40S Hybrid, launched in August 2013 and winner of the Show Boats Design Awards 2014 in three different categories: Interior Design, Environmental Protection and Holistic Design.
The hull number 2 has the same features of the first one: an aerodynamic light-weight aluminum hull, soft and innovative exterior lines and a modern interior lay-out plus an incredible "eco-friendly" optional advanced electric propulsion. The spacious, stylish interiors of the 40m are versatile featuring large windows and eco-friendly materials.
The large balconies together with ample deck space, various sunning and dining arrangements give great freedom to the Owner, as concerns both life on board and at sea. The external areas are large and comfortable and the relaxation areas, such as the rear beach club, are the true treat on board. This launch will represent a milestone in the great future of the leading Palumbo Group and of its Mediterranean Yachting network. The brand new motor-yachts will officially reveal their beauties at next Monaco Yacht Show.
Columbus Yachts activity never stops, in fact Naples Yard is in a continuous improvement and ready for some new and exciting challenges. At the end of the ceremony, three exclusive new project lines will be disclosed to the audience in preview:
