Columbus Atlantique 43-metre: Architecture for Voyagers

by Columbus Yachts 8 Apr 02:21 PDT

Columbus Yachts, a brand of Palumbo Superyachts, is pleased to announce the launch of a new line devoted to elegance and versatility: Atlantique.

The first of a series of 3 boats, the Columbus Atlantique 43m fully reflects Hot Lab's design philosophy, "Architecture for Voyagers", a combination of stylistic, design and functional elements dedicated to traveling by sea, to fully enjoy every single moment on board.

Hot Lab, responsible for both exterior and interior design, has pushed the interaction of spaces with the marine environment to the limit. The hull silhouette is reminiscent of yachts of bygone days and the stern area, with its large panoramic swimming pool, is just 50 cm above water.

Atlantique 43 is indeed a boat designed to the exacting requirements of the owner and his family, characterized by large outdoor areas that seamlessly merge with the generous interior spaces.

The indoor areas of the main and upper decks allow for total contact with the surrounding landscape.

The exterior lines are clean and elegant, with a touch of sportiness reminiscent of the most admired Italian GT cars in the world.

The "sailboat-style" stern of the Atlantique 43m is perhaps its most distinctive area. The central swimming pool surrounded by a C-shaped seat facing astern is highly scenic. The whole area is very low on the water thanks to the choice of "digging" the aft section taking it to just 50 cm from the sea, in addition to the two folding side wings, which enhance the feeling of direct contact with the natural environment. Immediately behind, only two steps up, there are two large L-shaped seats facing aft and an expandable table seating up to 12 diners.

The dining area has therefore been moved to the outside and a very fluid inside/ outside feeling is achieved through the closable "windbreak" side windows and the ones overlooking the main saloon. Indoor, the main saloon is characterized by two relaxation areas, the first (further aft) is furnished with a large C-shaped sofa and a small sofa adjacent to the entrance, the second one is designed like a cinema with a large sofa facing an 82'' wall tv. There is also the option of fully opening the two sliding windows in the forward area of the main saloon. The rest of the main deck is divided into several areas; moving starboard towards the bow we reach the main lobby with the stairwell, the double-exit lift, and further on you access a guest area that can be used as a small gym or library. The forward port area of the main deck is instead dedicated to the crew and it houses a pantry, a cold room, the laundry, the main galley and even a crew mess. The deck is completed by the captain cabin with en suite bathroom and a second garage for rescue tender and toys.

The upper deck is mainly reserved to the owner (in the 6-cabin version) and characterized by a completely private aft terrace. For, it can only be accessed from the owner apartment. In the sun-deck version there is an external staircase for access also from the stern. The interior features a suite with a king-size bed facing aft and surrounded by floor to ceiling windows for a 180 degrees view to the horizon. The owner studio, a large dressing room with a comfortable sea view vanity and the owner bathroom with tub and shower complete this area.

At the bow we find an outdoor lounge area and a second swimming pool surrounded by sunpads.

The lower deck houses 5 cabins, 2 vip with bathroom at side, 2 twin and a full beam vip suite. From the corridor amidships you can access the upper decks both via the main stairwell and via a convenient lift that connects all the decks.

The lower deck forward is dedicated to the crew, there are in fact 4 double cabins, all with their own bathroom, and a dedicated staircase leading to the second crew area on the main deck.

In the 5-cabin version, the owner cabin is located on the main deck and features 4 large cabins below deck, all with private bathrooms.

The 5.5m tender garage is in the port side aft. The main deck forward has been arranged so as to house both the second tender (rescue boat) and two waverunners.

Complete the features of Atlantique 43m a number of eco-friendly solutions - like solar panels, water purifiers, low fuel consumption propulsion system, etc. - to provide minimal negative impact on the environment and save energy at every turn.
