The upcoming Monaco Yacht Show is the venue of choice for many debuting luxury yachts, including Columbus Yachts’ sporty M/Y Divine. Divine is the second model in Columbus Yachts’ award winning 40 m Sport Hybrid series. She is “unique green” yacht that offers a completely new way of cruising, more conscious and respectful of the environment. With its neat vertical bow and automotive-inspired lines, the architectural point of view M/Y Divine can certainly be considered a sport yacht although characterized by high volume and impressive heights (2.3 of headroom), unusual for a yacht of this size.
The motor yacht’s all-aluminium semi-displacement unit is powered with an advanced hybrid propulsion for a performance range of between 3-20 knots.
The integrated I-Bridge system from Team Italia creates a helm station exclusive to each and every captain.
Three-decked aluminum M/Y Divine hosts ten guests in five staterooms with the owner’s suite and study on the main deck, and she can accommodates eight crew members. While naval architecture and exterior designer – in cooperation with the shipyard – is Hydrotec Srl, interior design has been conceived by Hot Lab. Clean, precise lines with modern sophisticated details were repeated throughout the interior to give a sense of harmony. Marbles such as Breccia Sarda and Adria Venato are matched with eucalyptus and american walnut wood.
A touch of warmth and luxury is provided by brightly colored leather and metal details with polished stainless steel. Soft wool carpets and precious fabrics complete the simple yet elegant feeling of the interiors.
A well-designed bar is located at the entrance of the main deck. Moving forward there is the dining area seating ten guests on comfortable armchairs by Flexform placed around a custom-made table.
In the lounge area the sofa, the coffee table and poufs by Flexform are placed in front of a large TV screen that is set in a sleek panel integrated into the ceiling. The area is framed by two large windows that provide breathtaking views onto the ocean and light up the saloon with natural light.
Further forward there is a fully equipped galley on the port side and a lobby on the right. The main deck also houses the master suite with a king size bed positioned in the center of the cabin between two large windows providing natural light and scenic views.
The cabin bulwarks are paneled in wood as is the floor and ceiling to create a warm and cozy environment. The master bathroom is equipped with two well-designed ‘his and her’ marble sinks on each side a large shower with glass walls.
Light colors are used throughout the yacht to complement natural light and the colors of the sea. On the upper deck the relaxing atmosphere is enhanced by two huge sofas and one big rectangular coffee table by Flexform. All interior woods are FSC certified and the leather is treated with a special non-toxic water painting process.
Divine was awarded with a special commendation for her Naval Architecture at 2016 Showboats Design Awards and she is the winner of World Superyacht Awards 2016 – category Semi-Displacement & Three Deck Motor Yacht 30m – 40.9m.
