In terms of her performance, power will come from a pair of 2,000hp MTU engines giving the vessel a top speed of 20 knots and a transoceanic range of over 3,000 nautical miles when cruising at 15 knots.
The vessel is expected to be delivered in summer 2020 and will make her debut at the Monaco Yacht Show that September. Photo: Columbus Yachts
