Dubai International Boat Show 2021 Has Been Cancelled


Columbus Yachts, a brand of Palumbo Superyachts, has launched and completed the first sea trials of the new 50m Sport yacht K2 at the Ancona shipyard.Featuring a vertical bow and sleek lines, this project has broken the mold of the times and become an icon of sportiness and elegance.The fleet is now enriched with a new 50m model which encompasses the distinctive elements of this design and combines new aesthetic features to an engineering development of the hull, which in navigation guarantees a high level of comfort even in rough sea conditions.Columbus Sport 50 K2 stems from the naval engineering of Palumbo Superyachts in collaboration with Hydro Tec. The external lines and the interior design are penned by Luca Dini Design & Architecture.Characterized by several unprecedented solutions designed at the owner’s request, who is on his third project with Palumbo Superyachts, K2 accommodates eleven guests in five comfortable cabins assisted by eleven crew members housed in seven cabins. The aluminum hull and superstructure, together having a gross tonnage of 499, are definitely one of the strong points of this vessel that, combined with a maximum draft of 2.2 m, make her a one-of-a-kind yacht on the market capable of sailing in shallow waters.Powered by two 2,600hp MTU engines, K2 reaches a top speed of 21.5 knots and a cruising speed of 17, with a long range for transoceanic passages.K2 is scheduled to make her official debut at the upcoming Monaco Yacht Show in September.Columbus Yachts was established in 2008. In early 2019, the shipyard launched the new flagship Columbus Classic 80m Dragon, which joins in the Columbus star-studded fleet with the award-winning Sport Hybrid 40 Divine, the 57m Taiba and the 40m Eleonora III. The Columbus range offers four different lines: Sport, Classic, Crossover and Custom for unique projects. Currently, Palumbo Superyachts comprises a representative office in Monaco and a logistics network of five shipyards in the Mediterranean (Ancona, Malta, Marseille, Naples and Savona), operating under just as many world-renowned brand names: ISA Yachts, Columbus Yachts, Mondomarine, Extra Yachts and Palumbo SY Refit.Credits: Columbus Yachts
