The Great Knuddel Deck
The deck and the cockpit are the most important part of any yacht, sailing or motor. It is in fact the exterior that is best experienced at sea: it must therefore protect you from the sea and the wind, it must be comfortable to sit and lie down, easy to move and manoeuvre.
Perhaps the most obvious exceptionality of the Columbia 50 lies in the blanket. The boat, by nature racy, is narrow, but it is a 15 meters for which it is however endowed with a beautiful maximum beam.
But the concept of the deck is truly formidable: let's start with the stern.
The cockpit is double: one part for the rudder and transom mainsail and the other part, well protected by the high deckhouse, for guests / crew.
Around there are the winches but the hawk is such to allow to move towards the bow easily.
The access below deck is wide and easy: with just a few steps you are already in the square (dinette-kitchen area), raised and facing out.
The Deck is particularly wide and free: the passage forwards towards the bow is spacious and has a high deckhouse handrail: this is also offered as a comfortable seat or backrest for those wishing to stay in the centre of the boat under the boom.
In this area there is a large and elegant skylight and is completely free of peaks (which is rare on board).
The must collects all the manoeuvres in a limited space with two stainless-steel tubular handrails, so as to facilitate the manoeuvres in complete safety but without disturbing the guests.
In its advanced the deck part is a marvel: the armed mast on the head and the elegant wooden shaft keep the manoeuvres well distributed and distant from each other, giving more space during navigation and even more in roadstead or in port.
Moreover, the elegant deck in white gealcoat guarantees freshness and "walkability" with bare feet (one should not in navigation) even in the strongest August sun.
Comfort included: inflatable boat with high-pressure hull with 3.5 hp electric motor, small armchairs / beds for relaxing in the bay, a very comfortable teak bathing ladder, fresh water shower, bimini-top, canarian awning, folding table wooden movable.
