Agility and Comfort at 50-metre Columbus K2
Vertical bow and streamlined profile, stylistically project Columbus K2 has broken the mould of the time becoming an icon of sportiness and elegance
The Sport line by Columbus Yachts is enriched with a new 50-metre model developed by Palumbo Superyachts in collaboration with the Hydro Tec studio, while the exterior and interior design is penned by Luca Dini Design & Architecture. Featuring several new solutions designed to the specific request of its experienced Owner, Columbus K2 accommodates 11 guests in five comfortable cabins and 11 crew members sharing seven cabins.
From the naval engineering and architecture point of view, the lines of Columbus Sport 50 M/Y K2 are characterized by a razor-sharp vertical bow, with double-edged cross sections to improve seaworthiness and keep the boat dry even in rough sea conditions.
The interior is clean, bright, harmonious and coherent. The layout has attractive outdoor spaces ideal for conviviality as they provide the flexibility of enjoying various daytime activities by easily transforming the sunpads into conversation seating sets or creating areas suitable for receiving guests. To maximise the versatility of each area, great attention was paid to shading solutions.
A swimming pool with Jacuzzi is located forward on the upper deck and can be reached from the cockpit through two large side walkways that turn the whole deck into a proper relaxation and entertainment area. The beach club, thanks also to the transformer platform with an approximately 4 square metre pop-up accessory automatically raising when the platform opens, offers a generous relaxation and entertainment area.
The interior overall effect is completed by branded furnishings, with a predilection for the Fendi collection, though with a keen eye to the classic and tailoring tradition of great national companies
Another aspect particularly well developed from a technical perspective was the reduction of noise and vibrations reaching extremely low noise levels in the guest rooms and especially significant because obtained at a value of 85% of the maximum power of the propulsion system, therefore at a speed slightly higher than 20 knots.
Powered by two 2000 HP MTU engines, M/Y K2 is able to reach a maximum speed of 21.5 knots, with a cruising speed of 17 knots and a wide range for transatlantic crossings. TEAM Italia’s multitouch dashboard, designed in collaboration with the Palumbo Superyachts team and the Captain of M/Y K2, was built on the concepts of safety and manoeuvrability, providing the captain with adaptability in any sea condition.
Basically, Columbus Sport 50 embodies two distinct souls that allow it to be an absolutely sporty boat in terms of maximum speed without compromising on comfort and range, as well as being absolutely in line with displacement type vessels when cruising at economic speed.
