After the success obtained at the ShowBoats Design Awards, where the innovative 40S Hybrid won three awards in three categories: Holistic Design, Interior Design and Environmental Protection, and after the victory of the UIM Environmental Award 2014, Palumbo Group took part in Dubai International Boat Show, where the company showed some scale models belonging to the new lines of Columbus Yachts.
Created together with Sergio Cutolo of HYDROTEC, the new Columbus Yachts' models were divided in three lines: Sport Hybrid, Classic and Explorer.
The 40S Hybrid aroused great interest among fans who crowded the Columbus Yachts' stand at Marina Display. The contemporary design, the Sport Hybrid engine (which ensures high performance levels associated with a low environmental impact), the refined interior, realized in wood come from responsibly managed forests, captured the attention of visitors, curious to discover the secrets of a boat that is unique in the world of international yachting.
The Classic line has also great success in Dubai. These Yachts, characterized by large volumes, harmonize a "classic style" with a distinctly contemporary style. This line has been designed to maximize comfort while browsing and to offer a lot of customer services to the ship owners.
The 73M Explorer presented another Columbus Yachts' line at DIBS 2014. This full- displacement motor yacht, built in stainless steel with aluminum superstructure, is the perfect choice for owners who like long trips not giving up the comforts.
The 22nd Dubai International Boat Show, that hosted thousands of visitors from 70 countries, represented an important opportunity for Columbus Yachts to show his creations and the most important projects under construction. Numerous contacts with potential new owners confirm the feeling between Palumbo Group and the Middle East area, a strategic point of interest for the Company.
