Yacht Construction: Columbus Yachts builds first hull for Columbus Crossover 40


Columbus Yachts has confirmed the construction of the Columbus Crossover 40 steel hull, with exterior yacht design by Hydro Tec and interior yacht design by Francesco Guida. As a brand of Palumbo Superyachts, the shipyard has started building the steel hull for the first 40-meter Columbus Crossover unit in Savona, with scheduled delivery for spring 2024.

Below are the latest details shared by the Columbus Yachts team:

The new Columbus Crossover 40 project stems from the need to accommodate larger tenders on compact yachts while enabling owners and charter guests to see their yacht as a private island where they can sit back, relax and enjoy all of their holiday activities.

Built with modern and muscular shapes in mind

The exterior lines on the Columbus Crossover 40 are characterized by modern and muscular shapes, with a prevalence of stretched and angled surfaces. This model also benefits from a higher distribution of volume in the forward area than typically found on Crossovers, which makes room for the tender. The steel displacement hull has a bulbous bow, flat and flared aft sections, and a light alloy superstructure.

Creating a modern and inspiring environment

The yacht interior will be modern and inspired by the theme of exploration. The layout includes four cabins on the lower deck, arranged as three VIP suites and one double cabin, and a full-beam Owner’s suite on the main deck. This motor yacht can house a tender up to 8 meters in length and 2.5 tons in weight on deck, as well as the whole series of water toys that the modern owner desires.

Powered by Two Caterpillar C 32 of 970 kW, this latest model will achieve a maximum speed of over 14.5 knots. Fueled by tanks of 60m³, the Crossover 40 will reach a 4,000-mile range and the two pairs of stabilizers ensure optimal performance while at anchor and underway.

YATCO congratulates the Columbus Yachts team for the shipyard’s first Columbus Crossover 40-meter steel hull construction. YATCO is excited to see the motor yacht soon as part of the Columbus yacht fleet and for sale on YATCO.com.
