And that’s not all. Tomorrow, in fact, Palumbo will unveil some interesting news at its conference at Monaco Boat Show while new Columbus Yacht 70m is under construction in Italy. Entirely built in aluminium and designed by Vafiadis & Partners Studio, this superyacht is one among the few big yachts built without any buyer.

At Monaco Boat Show (September 28- October 1), Palumbo will exhibit Divine, the second sample of Columbus Yachts 40 M Sport Hybrid, which awarded Superyachts Awards 2016 in the Semi-Displacement&ThreeDeck 30-40.9 m category.
