Darwin 107’
57 m Explorer

The largest yacht with Hydro Tec holistic design up to date

The 57m Taiba is a custom classic superyacht and is the new Columbus flagship. She is also the largest yacht to boast the Hydro Tec Holistic design package of exterior design, engineering and naval architecture.

On the exterior design side, the challenge on this boat was to have huge enclosed volumes and a total of six decks on a boat of 55.7m without compromising the aesthetics. The results made us proud, having an elegant and harmonic line despite her volume.

On the technical side the two strongest issues were to keep the weight under control to achieve all the stability requirements despite the high superstructures and to minimize noise and vibrations due to the owner strong requests.
