A 154-footer (47-meter) is joining the fold at Columbus Yachts. The shipyard has sold hull number one of its Columbus Atlantique 47, the latest in a series that already includes several superyacht models.
In fact, the Atlantique series began with the Atlantique 43 earlier this year. It later expanding with the Atlantique 37 and 55. So far, two Atlantique 43 megayachts are in build at the shipyard’s location in Ancona, Italy.
With design by Hot Lab, like the rest of the yachts in the series, the Columbus Atlantique 47 immediately draws your attention to her open-air beach club (top). The terraced area really starts at the doors to the saloon, with plenty of loose seating arrangements. The cascading levels help fulfill owners’ and guests’ desire to spend as much time soaking up the ocean environment as possible. Between the large, centrally positioned pool and the wide deploying swim steps, there’s abundant opportunity to literally soak it up, too. (Yet another pool sits forward on the upper deck as well.) Finally, fold-down, wing-like portions of the yacht’s sides expand the usable space, for sunning, seating, or simply enjoying the feeling of being outside.
Inside, the owners have requested four staterooms for friends and family below decks, as you might expect. Further as you’d expect, their suite sits forward on the main deck.
With a 499-gross-ton volume, the Columbus Atlantique 47 should achieve 3,400 nautical miles at 12 knots. Her twin 1,350-hp diesel engines also should allow a top speed of 15½ knots and a cruising speed one knot lower.
Delivery is set for 2023. In related news, this marks the eighth contract for Columbus Yachts’ parent company, Palumbo Superyachts, so far this year. Palumbo Superyachts also owns ISA Yachts and Extra Yachts.
