With its aluminum hull and superstructure, with a gross tonnage of 499, combined with a maximum draft of 2.2 m, the Columbus Sport 50 metres represents a one-of-a-kind yacht on the market, capable of sailing in shallow waters.

In the Wonderful atmosphere of the London’s Guidhall  the jury decided to award the RSY38m EXP, confirming the success of this brand new series.

The project grew from the owners’ desire for a motoryacht providing convenience, versatility and the seafaring qualities and range of a true Explorer, a crossover combining a luxury yacht that respects the environment and is compatible with the modern lifestyle of a young couple and their family with a pocket-size ship that can cope with long voyages and spend long periods of time out of port.
