Columbus Yachts has added two new models, measuring at 37 metres (121 feet) and 55 metres (180 feet), to its Atlantique series.
The yacht builder revealed the first model in the series, the Atlantique 43, last year, which was promptly followed by the sale of the first hull.
Taking inspiration from Italian GT cars, the Atlantique series boasts ‘clean and elegant’ exterior lines. This is combined with a hull silhouette which ‘recalls the sailing yachts of bygone days’. The aft of the yacht also features an impressive panoramic swimming pool.
With four en suite double cabins accommodating up to eight guests, the ‘compact’ Atlantique 37 model features a 300GT interior. It combines ‘sporty lines with refined interiors’, featuring two dining areas; one on the main deck and a second on the upper deck surrounded by rounded windows.
The Atlantique 37 is equipped with two tender garages. The first garage is large enough to hold a 4.45-metre tender and is situated towards the right side of the forward hangar. The second sits forward and can hold both a rescue boat and a 3.25-metre tender.
Powered by twin Man 1400hp engines, the Atlantique 37 can reach a top speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of 13 knots.
As the new flagship of the line, the Atlantique 55 features a steel hull and aluminium superstructure that is spread across four decks. The main deck is available in two configurations, with the owner’s cabin situated forward. A gym and private balcony are included with the first version, while the second version boasts a fifth VIP cabin and a private balcony in the owner’s cabin.
An additional four double cabins can be found on the lower deck, along with the crew quarters that allows for up to 13 members of staff. Located on the main deck aft and the sundeck, the superyacht features two swimming pools. Tenders and jet skis can be stored in the forward garage.
