COOL BOAT DESIGNS – From Columbia Yachts comes the new/old Columbia Classic 5.5 meter. What a beauty! The prototype of this exciting boat has been turning heads all over Newport Harbor for the past couple of months!
Based on Columbia’s Classic 5.5 meter – now modernized and fitted with inboard electric propulsion, it’s a true gentleman’s bay racer, with the convenience of silent running electric inboard power. They have modernized the keel and rudder, and employ modern vacuum infused carbon fiber construction. This allows a strong light structure and add inboard power without increasing the overall weight from the original Columbia 5.5 meter.
The improvements and modern foils keep it out of the 5.5 meter class – it’s now in a class of its own! The boat comes complete with sails, trailer, running rigging, covers, even life jackets and dock lines! A lot of class for just $112,000!
