Tomahawk 52 m, the new explorer concept by Columbus Yachts

A revolutionary explorer concept 
-Conceived as a ship for its technical and seakeeping qualities; as a yacht for its comfort qualities
A full custom design
-The extra-large volumes host the largest beach area and toy storage on the market

Columbus Yachts, a Palumbo Group S.p.A. brand, is proud to unveil the Columbus Tomahawk 52 m, the new explorer concept in its 499GT version. The vessel has a very unique Italian design. Marco Casali has based the concept of the new explorer on Palumbo’s shipbuilding experience and heritage.

The Columbus Tomahawk is conceived as a ship for its technical and seakeeping qualities, not just as a yacht. The hull (by Insenaval) is the result of a research vessel experience, designed to offer the best sea keeping and stability qualities in any weather condition worldwide.

The name “Tomahawk” – which comes from a North American Indian battle axe – gives the bow its unique design: created for a perfect relationship with the sea, it recalls the power and the stylish design of the ancient and solid weapon.

The clean-cut design of this explorer vessel perfectly combines with the extraordinary spaces for guests, with high quality finishing and unique comfort, offered by the incredible size and ”smart” layout.

The Tomahawk is a concept that may be developed in lengths from 40 to 100 m: a full custom design which is able to satisfy the owner’s wishes on an unbeatable technical platform.

Marco Casali – designer: “Tomahawk is conceived as a yacht inside a ship, because of its comfort qualities. The owner’s cabin (75sqm) lies at the bow with its forward facing windows overlooking a 21 square meters private terrace with its sun bathing platform and Jacuzzi: a clear 180 degree view in total privacy. The guest area in the lower deck is connected to the gym-spa area with windows overlooking the beach club. The guests and the owner may reach the beach area, the pool and the water directly without passing through the saloons. A unique dining area is hosted in the bow with an American bar and a cinema/karaoke space. The crew area is also larger than usual and focuses on the quality of the space.”

The vessel’s extra-large volumes are clearly devoted to the largest beach area ever (200smq on 3 levels) and all kinds of sea-toy storage. The aft level opens directly over the sea with the possibility of hosting up to two 12m tenders. Four jet skis, a submarine or several motorcycles could be hosted in the lower garage together with inflatables or other toys. A bow garage guarantees space for an additional tenders and sea-toys.

When empty, the entire area reveals the full size swimming pool (6×2.5 m) in a space that could host three quarters of a basketball court (9x7m). This area may be equipped with free standing tables, sun bathing platforms or settees, or as a big playground.

The powerful crane for tenders and submarines can also be used as the lift for an ample canvas bimini to provide shade for the beach area.

Among the unique features of this vessel, is the opportunity of hosting an MCA compliant helipad on the top deck with direct access to the main stairwell, along with an enlarged bridge offering perfect visibility for mooring and cruising in any location.
