Construction Starts On Columbus Oceanic 70-meter Superyacht

Back in September 2014 YF alerted you to a new 70-meter Studio Vafiadis design proposed by Columbus Yachts. Fast forward to nearly a year later, that same design is presently under construction! Columbus Yachts, which is the yacht brand of the Palumbo Group has started construction on the new 70.60-meter superyacht in its Oceanic line. When completed, this superyacht will represent the largest superyacht built by the Italian-based company. For a 70-meter yacht, this vessel boasts very sleek lines -quite sporty-.

Columbus' yard in Naples, Italy is doing the construction of the 70.60-meter superyacht. It is being built with a steel hull. With a beam of 13.4-meters she is sure to be fairly roomy on the interior. Her estimated gross tonnage is just shy of 2000. A nice feature onboard will be a floodable side garage which will allow entrance and exit from the yacht in grand style. Expect a fairly large beach club along with a breathtaking central spiral staircase piercing all guest decks. The superyacht appears to host a sizable pool on the foredeck. The Columbus Oceanic 70 is expected to sleep up to twelve guests in six suites. Top speed is anticipated to be 18-knots with a higher-cruising speed at 16-knots and the ability to run a 3,000 nautical mile range at that pace. Dial her back further and she can give you just over 5,000 nautical miles.
