It seems superyachts are old news with Italy-based Columbus Yachts announcing the creation of the incredible 394 foot (120-metre) ‘Columbus Classic’ superyacht that is basically a gigayacht (apparently, this is a word now). This mammoth watercraft accommodates up to 22 people in 10 cabins and features floor-to-ceiling windows and a frameless glass railing.
This modern masterpiece of nautical travel comes with two custom tenders – one limo and one runabout – along with a dive centre, living and lounge areas, gym and spa. The main deck consists of 10 cabins for guests as well as crew quarters, while the master suite stretches 2,800 square feet and contains a beauty room, massage room, hot tub, dressing and bathroom, office and large sleeping quarters with amazing ocean views.
The centrepiece of the Columbus Classic is the 36-foot glass-bottomed main-deck pool and bar area that includes a waterfall. The waterfall cascades from the main pool to a smaller one below, creating a remarkable water feature adding to the luxurious feel of the vessel. There’s also plenty of outdoor areas to soak up some rays during the day, while the top deck includes a fire pit surrounded by lounges for those cool nights on the ocean.
As you’d expect from a yacht this size, the engine is extremely powerful, with the Columbus Classic driven by seven generators – five MTU 16 V 4000 M33Fs and two MTU 16V 2000 M41As – that combine for more than 13,000 horsepower with a top speed of 20 knots.
