Columbus unveils 80m megayacht


Italy-based Columbus Yachts has entered the megayacht segment with the first unit of its Columbus80 line — a 261-foot (79.5m) full-displacement yacht with steel hull and aluminium superstructure. It’s the first unit in a range that will grow on larger sizes, according to the company.

“The construction of the Columbus 80m has been split into different sites, working in parallel and not in series,” Francesco Carbone, Columbus Yachts’ general manager, said in a statement.

The steel hull was made at the company’s Naples facilities and is being moved on a barge to the company’s Ancona facilities, where it will be coupled to the aluminium superstructure built there. In this way, the two sections have been made at the same time, accelerating time to delivery by about eight months, Carbone said.

Columbus Yachts has been building, refitting and maintaining yachts and ships, including cruise ships and cargo vessels, in the Mediterranean for 50 years.
