The Columbus Classic range from Columbus Yachts is expanding, with a model targeting the sub-500-gross-ton threshold. Measuring 164 feet (49.9 meters), the Columbus Classic 50M has a set technical platform yet abundant availability for full personalization throughout her decks.
The Columbus Classic range already includes a few larger models. One is the Columbis Classic 80M, for example, of which Dragon is hull number one, A 100M and 120M are also available. The new project shows off similarly time-honored lines, with modern must-haves like big windows and big, open decks.
The shipyard, in conjunction with Sergio Cutolo and his naval-architecture team at Hydro Tec, chose a smaller-length yacht and smaller-volume yacht because the majority of buyers seek projects with these characteristics. Similarly, these characteristics keep regulatory requirements simpler. The size does not prevent you from making the most of the interior, however. You and your choice of interior designer can have accommodations for 12 people, several lounges and dining areas, and more.
Traditionalists might like putting the master suite on the main deck. Or, put it on an upper deck, making it more like a pied-a-terre with a private lounge. With 29’5” (9 meters) of beam, the Columbus Classic 50M should lend a roomy feel regardless of where you lay your head. Additionally, the beam should make the all-important beach club a welcoming area. Columbus Yachts and Hydro Tec will outfit it with a cantilevered hydraulic platform, too.
The Columbus Classic 50M will meet RINA classification standards. Under twin MTU power, the full-displacement megayacht should see a top speed of 15½ knots. Cruising speed, meanwhile, should be 13 knots. Additionally, at a 10-knot pace, the Columbus Classic 50M should be able to put 5,000 nautical miles under her hull. That is more than enough to cross either the Atlantic or the Pacific.
