Working on the Columbus 50S
Although it won’t launch until 2020, the design of the new Columbus 50S from Columbus Yacht is already very much completed.
As with the ISA Alloy 43, Luca Dini’s studio is the pen. Once again the hull is aluminium. It will have a maximum beam of 9.15 metres and stretch 49.5 in length. It will be clothed in sleek yet imposing modern lines complimented by a plumb bow and two large horizontal slashes that lend this tri-deck a sporty allure. Lots of glazing and clever bulwarks design afford uninterrupted views from the saloon while twin 2,000 hp MTUs unleash a maximum speed of 20 knots. In build in the yard’s Neapolitan facility, the Columbus 50S will be in her owner’s hands the summer after next.
