Columbus Yachts has introduced its next model in the Crossover. The smallest offering in the range, the 40 Crossover was conceived to meet accommodation needs expressed by customers.
The external lines are characterised by modern and muscular shapes, with a prevalence of tense and angled surfaces with the concentration of volumes in the forward area, typical of the Crossover, but further accentuated to make room for the tender.
The hull is of the displacement type, with bulbous bow and flat, flared aft sections. The construction is in steel with light alloy superstructures.
The 40 Crossover can accommodate tenders up to 8 metres in length on deck as well as a whole series of toys that are normally supplied to yachts of this type. The space left by the tender, which is usually towed, remains completely free thanks to the retractable crane installed in the aft area of the upper deck.
The stern area houses a swimming pool with an automatic sliding cover and a large bathing platform, which becomes the ideal area to look out over the sea.
The bulwarks are completely foldable, creating a huge platform that becomes an immense beach club that can be configured according to the needs of the moment.
The sundeck is intended for social life and is characterised by a sunbathing area toward the stern and an area for observation with a sofa facing the bow. In the middle, covered by the hard top, is an outdoor dining/cocktail area with a large bar on the straight side and a dining table on the left.
The owner’s suite is traditionally arranged toward the bow on the main deck, while the four guest cabins are located below deck in the central area of the hull.
A tunnel, located in the double bottom, connects the engine room to the crew area, as well as allowing the passage of the main lines of the plants and the inspection of the equipment and fuel tanks.
The stern area of the hull houses a lazarette that can be configured for the owner’s equipment.
The 40 will be powered by two Caterpillar C32 of 970 kW each that allow a maximum speed in excess of 14.5 knots and a range of over 4,000 miles at economic speed.
The yacht is fully equipped for maximum comfort with both zero-speed and underway stabilisation.
