Columbus’ debut 80m superyacht makes momentous progress

Columbus Yachts has recently confirmed that the hull for the yard’s 80m superyacht has been transported from its Naples yard to its Ancona facility, marking significant progress on the latest build from the Italian yacht builder.

The superyacht has been built with a new approach for the yard, and will feature classic yet contemporary lines, six decks, and is the first hull in a range that Columbus will be developing with even larger builds in the future.

Notable features of the yacht include the stern section of the lower deck being designed entirely as a guest space. The stern wall and the two side walls open outwards, extending the deck area from 100 to 200sqm, creating a big water-level beach club with sun loungers and bar.

One of the most unique spaces on board is the panoramic swimming pool. At seven metres long and fitted with a counter current swimming system, it is fed from above by an eye-catching waterfall, which also acts as a virtual partition, separating the pool from the hydro-massage tub. Located inside the mast structure, the tub is closed on three sides, creating the feel of a grotto hidden behind a blade of water.

The yacht is powered by twin MTU 4000 M63L engines providing her with a maximum speed of 16.5 knots, whilst achieving a range of 6000nm at 12 knots.
