The lat­est ex­plorer con­cept from famed Ital­ian ship­builder Colum­bus Yachts is a yacht with a dif­fer­ence. Less a fixed de­sign and more a tem­plate, the scal­able na­ture of the Colum­bus Tom­a­hawk 52m al­lows for lengths be­tween 40m and 100m to sat­isfy the dis­cern­ing wishes of any owner.

De­signer Marco Casali’s vi­sion for the ves­sel re­calls the unique ship­build­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and her­itage of Colum­bus, con­ceived also with tech­ni­cal qual­i­ties at the forefront of its pri­or­i­ties.

In­ge­nious pack­ag­ing cre­ates the op­por­tu­nity for, among oth­ers, a 75sqm mas­ter cabin with a 180-de­gree view of a pri­vate ter­race.

The lat­ter may be com­pleted with a jacuzzi, din­ing area with a bar and cinema or karaoke space, and up to 200sqm of beach area across three lev­els.

Ex­ter­nal con­fig­u­ra­tions in­clude the pos­si­bil­ity of host­ing an MCA­com­pli­ant he­li­pad on the top deck and an aft plat­form that feeds di­rectly into the open sea. The lat­ter is able to ac­com­mo­date four jet skis, a sub­mersible and two 12m ten­ders, in ad­di­tion to var­i­ous recre­ational in­flat­a­bles. A crane, which can be spec­i­fied to re­po­si­tion the var­i­ous smaller ve­hi­cles, can dou­ble up to mount the can­vas bi­mini to shade the beach area.
