Columbus Yachts: A New Perspective on Yacht Building

By Ben Roberts

Columbus Yachts has installed fish-eye cameras with 180˚ visual angles to capture the current construction progress of their new 40m Sport Hybrid superyacht, due for delivery this year.

These intriguing new shots were born out of the initiative to provide owners with up to date information on the daily status of the build and an accurate snapshot of what is happening in the yard as well as allowing technical management to produce a video of the entire build process.

Mr Pino Palumbo, the GM of the superyacht division Columbus Yachts, said that while the individual pictures are not particularly exciting, the resulting video is remarkable as it will capture the evolution of each yacht as if by magic.
