Yacht Columbus Sport Hybrid 40m: The latest reports from the Palumbo Shipyard in Naples, Italy demonstrate that the 40m Columbus Sport Hybrid Project is progressing at a rate of knots. With the all-aluminum hull and superstructures now all but complete, the focus of attention is turning toward the interior fit out, conceived by Hot Lab Yacht & Design in Milan in conjunction with the shipyard and owner.
Yacht Columbus Sport Hybrid 40m: Just prior to going to press, we met with Antonio Romano of Hot Lab who provided these very latest renderings exclusively to INVICTVS. The conceptual drawings show an elegant contemporary design, with a depth of texture provided through extensive use of natural materials. Marbles such as Breccia Sarda and Adria Venato are matched with eucalyptus, Tay wood and a dark oak for the interior floors. These are warmed with luxurious brightly colored leather, soft wool carpets and polished stainless steel.
Yacht Jongert 3200P: Forward, directly aft of the salon doors, there is additional seating if guests want a break from the ‘action’, the interior layout is available in three variations. The first features a large saloon, a master stateroom and two guest suites, while the second layout has a smaller saloon and a third guest cabin. The third provides for four guest cabins. A second salon, adjacent to the galley, is also located below decks. The Doug Peterson hull design adds speed and stability to her sleek style and pedigree.
Yacht Dubois 101m Sloop: In the bow, the yacht’s 22 crewmembers will be accommodated in 18 en-suite cabins. An impressive main salon will be located on the main deck, with the superstructure sporting a fetching hardtop. Although a shipyard had not yet been selected at the time of writing, construction was due to begin the second quarter of 2013. Dubois has indicated construction will take approximately two and a half years once a build contract is signed.
Yacht Miss Tor 40m Schooner The Miss Tor 40m Schooner is a heavy yacht, but her draft of just 6′ (1.8m) will provide her with the ability to cruise shallow waters and enter small inlets inaccessible to sailing yachts with a deeper keel. Below decks, there is accommodation for ten guests in five staterooms, including the owner’s suite, which occupies the full beam on the lower deck.
Yacht Dubois 101m Sloop: This yacht has 410′ mast and 137′ boom. The UK design firm Dubois Naval Architects unveiled design proposal for a remarkable 101m sailing sloop in early 2012. By the beginning of 2013, the contract had been sold and construction was due to start as INVICTUS went to print. It is the firm’s largest yacht to date, and will be the largest sloop-rigged sailing yacht in the world upon completion.
Yacht Dubois 101m Sloop: The commission came from an existing Dubois client who wanted more than just a megayacht capable of transoceanic cruising. He wanted an explorer, with plenty of dedicated space for tenders, spares, and other equipment. That’s a design brief better-suited to the power yacht sector, but one that has crossed over rather well. Design 380 is not only impressive for her size, however.
Yacht Dubois 101m Sloop: Despite a displacement of 2,000-tonnes, she will draw just 13′ (4m) with her keel retracted. For blue water cruising, her keel will increase her draft to almost 40′ (12.8m), providing additional stability beneath her 410′ (125m) mast. To put the height of this vessel’s mast in perspective, the Statue of Liberty’s torch is 305′ (93m) high, while the famous Big Ben clock tower in London stands 315 (96.3m) tall. If that doesn’t impress you, consider this: Dubois’ 331′ (101m) sloop will feature a 137′ (42m) mainsail boom – that’s longer than the total length of most sailing super yachts.
