Italian shipyard, Columbus Yachts - part of the Palumbo Group - is busy preparing for the launch of two new superyachts this weekend. On the 16th May, the Classic 57m as well as hull number two of the Sport Hybrid 40m series will be launched on one of the Palumbo Group’s floating docks in the Port of Naples.
A closely guarded secret until this point, the Classic 57m is a fully custom superyacht constructed from steel and aluminium. She is part of the Classic line, which was inaugurated by Prima in 2011.
Representatives of the brand commented on the interiors of the hull, stating, “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 were mixed together in order to create a unique environment inspired by natural elements.”
The Sport Hybrid 40m has been built on the platform of the 40S Hybrid, which was launched in summer 2013. Features are largely identical to the 40S Hybrid, with an aerodynamic lightweight aluminium hull, soft exterior lines and a modern interior layout. There is also an optional eco-friendly advanced electric propulsion system in place. Several large balconies combine with large deck areas to create a spacious environment.
Following the launch of the two new superyachts tomorrow, Columbus Yachts will also reveal their three new project lines; the Columbus Liberty Range, created in cooperation with Marco Casali and ranging from 33 to 38m LOA; the Columbus Sport Oceanic Range from 50 to 80m LOA; and the Columbus Oceanic Coupe Range, of which the first two models are reportedly 45 and 50 metres.
