New Model: Colombo 37 Alldays

Big expectation awaits the Colombo 37 Alldays, which is the first complete new model to come out from owners Sarnico Group after taking over the legendary Italian Lake Como boat builder in 2007. Sarnico Group gave the duties of the new Colombo to design firms they have been working with for a long time which are Nuvolari Lenard for the upper structure who are collaborators since the 1995 introduced Sarnico 45, and Brunello Acampora from Victory for the hull. The 37 Alldays also represents a new direction for the Colombo shipyard but also for boats in this highly competitive size. The shape in itself is may be actually a bit tad reminiscent of the Sarnico designs with the wood giving compliments to the Giacomo Colombo legacy. Wood is actually a predominant feature of the looks outside not only for the teak which is featured in all the deck from fore to aft, but also in the stern transom, toe rail, and the distinctive hand rail. The new Colombo also surprises in its comfort being in this area also a top category boat, thanks to its wide beam, but also to the intelligent use of space. If someone knows Colombo the previous models where actually never renowned for there spaces, but more a testament to rich materials and super high class finishing details. Accommodation wise the new Colombo offers a two cabin interior below decks with owners cabin to fore, and a three berth guest cabin to mid ship this also enjoying spectacular views thanks to large triangle shape view windows. A separate bathroom with shower, head serves both cabins. The living area of the 37 Alldays is all on the main deck, with a spacious aft deck cockpit served by a settee, and a galley and C-shaped saloon inside. This part protected to inconvenient weather by a hardtop which features a glassed opening sunroof, and a fully retractable patio door. Furniture wood for hull number one is white oak wood. Power for the 37 Alldays is by twin Volvo 300hp diesel engines, propelled with the easy to use IPS pod drives. Speeds are a wide open throttle of 33 knots, and a cruise of 28 knots at half load.
