The clean-cut exterior lines and contemporary-classic interior design by Luca Dini Design & Architecture, the Columbus 50-metre Sport K2 carries on from where the original Columbus 40-metre Sport designed by Hydro Tec’s Sergio Cutolo.

“The concept of this yacht mirrors the personality, style and approach to life of its owner. Elegant, refined, attentive, demanding, but also sporty, traveller and open-minded.”, comments Luca Dini, founder of the Luca Dini Design & Architecture studio.

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. Featuring several new solutions designed to the specific request of its experienced owner who is on his third project with Palumbo Superyachts,K2 accommodates 11 guests in five comfortable cabins and 11 crew members sharing seven cabins.

To maximise the versatility of each area, great attention was paid to shading solutions. On the two decks, bar and dining facilities are set up both indoor and outdoor. The outdoor space has a swimming pool with a hot tub and a lot of relaxation and entertainment areas. A comfortable entertaining area has been created in the upper deck, with a large 65-inch Beovision Eclipse TV that combines 4K HDR LED screen technology with the three-channel sound quality. Larger 82-inch TV screens appear in the sky lounge and master stateroom.

The fitness section in the owner’s area forward on the main deck, spreads over 18 sq m and is equipped like a functional gym designed in every detail and complete with a hammam in the owner’s bathroom.

Italian designer names are abound. The free-standing furniture in the main salon, for example, is by Fendi Casa, a games table in the sky lounge is by Poltrona Frau, the accompanying chairs are by Trussardi Casa and the sofas on the upper deck are by Bentley Home. Other high-end brands include Contardi, Minotti, Porada, Maxalto and Paola Lenti. It is a precious interior, reserving pleasant surprises and welcoming with reassuring luxury.

The boat is equipped with a tender and jet ski respectively positioned astern of the lower deck. The tender is launched and hauled through a side opening in the hull. 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.
