Broward Shipyard has introduced the Columbus series expedition superyachts, developed together with Donald Starkey of Donald Starkey Design. Named the Columbus series, it is Broward's aim to bring the customers back to the United States with regard to realizing new construction projects.
The Columbus 146 expedition yacht is a 44.5 metre semidisplacement superyacht, designed in cooperation with several of Broward's clients and Donald Starkey of Donald Starkey Design. The Columbus 146 will be built according the rules and requirements of the Classification Society and the Large Yacht Code 2 (LY2). Fully constructed in aluminum with a large beam of 9.15 metres in order to reduce the draft and provide access to the most remote and shallow waters in the Caribbean waters and the keys.
Due to the fact that the Columbus 146 will be built in aluminum, the yard is able to save weight, which will benefit the performance of this motoryacht and offer an easy 14 knots cruising speed with a range of over 3,000 nautical miles, whereby the Columbus 146 will be provided with two Caterpillar C32 Acert main engines each with a maximum output of 1,299 hp.
The construction time of this new project is approximately 24 to 28 months following a signed contract.
