Columbus Yachts has released renderings of an 80-meter (262-foot) superyacht, which the builder is calling its first debut in the mega-yacht segment.

The Italian builder designed the vessel's exterior with the "ocean liners" of the 50s and 60s in mind, however, the interior is contemporary and minimalist.

The 262-footer has six decks with eight staterooms, accommodating 12 people. Guests can travel from each level via glass elevator. The entire upper deck is dedicated to the owner.

There's also space for 19 crew members in eight cabins.

Columbus is using a new construction process for this megayacht, building the yacht in two separate locations: the steel hull is being built in Naples, and the aluminum superstructure in Ancona. Columbus Yachts plans to join two structures by the end of June 2017.

Range: She can travel 6,000 nm at a cruise of 12 knots.
