\new build



Palumbo has grown to become a major player in the shipping industry and is building up its growth and reputation in the luxury yacht world for both new build and refit-repair.

The new build division which has been operating under Columbus Yachts since year 2008 recently welcomed ISA Yachts, one of the most celebrated international brands in the superyacht industry, as part of the group.


Artisans of luxury since 2001

Since foundation in 2001, the wishes, ideas and expectations of those who rely on ISA Yachts’ know-how, have always been at the heart of our projects. This is where the ability to create tailor made dreams comes from.

ISA represents excellence in quality, materials, finishes, technology and design. We build luxury mega yachts with a maximum level of customization and the distinctive influence of “made in Italy”.

32 luxury mega yachts have been delivered from our Ancona-based shipyard. With a space of over 50,000 square meters, we are able to work on each project with maximum care for detail, high focus on client desires and with on-going teamwork.

Those who rely on ISA’s skills, today rely on a strengthened company. Isa Yachts is now not only icon of excellence in style and high quality products but also part of Palumbo Group, which represents the major refit-repair network in the Mediterrean with a background of 50 years of experience in shipbuilding.

ISA yachts will significantly contribute to strengthen the awareness of the group in the superyacht industry which has been operating under the pluri-awarded Columbus Yachts brand since 2008.


A tailormade superyachts laboratory

The collections of innovative design yachts, full custom oriented, merge a solid 50 year heritage in the shipbuilding industry with an extremely technological oriented production thanks to the strong in-house engineering team, knowledgeable project management organization and the cooperation of top international designers.

Custom platforms are available for steel-aluminum and full aluminum production. The forward-thinking Columbus Sport Hybrid collection is powered with the famous hybrid propulsion system – the first system in the luxury motor yachts industry worldwide to obtain the “Hybrid Propulsion” (Electric Motor & Shaft Generator) Rina Class Certificate in 2014.

Being part of the Palumbo Group, Columbus Yachts is able to support Superyachts Owners with a range of time sensitive, multitasking services including sales and after sales assistance with a network of facilities, Palumbo Superyachts, in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea (Ancona, Messina, Malta, Marseille, Naples).

The acquisition of the Shipyard in Tenerife represents a clear step of growth of the Group outside the Mediterrean.
