A very attractive new build full displacement yacht with a gross tonnage of approximately 1900 GT which makes her interior volume near or more than that of most 70+ meter yachts. Priced significantly less than  any other option in the world market, the Columbus Classic 65m is already well under construction for delivery in 2015.


Importantly she is being built to LY3 and will be compliant with the new I.L.O. requirements regarding crew spaces, etc.


Her builders are well known in the commercial ship and fast ferry business and built and delivered the 54m yacht PRIMA to excellent acclaim in 2012. They presently have three other yachts under construction. The Columbus Classic 65m promises to be the flagship of their expanding yacht fleet.
