Italian builder Columbus Yachts, a brand of the Palumbo Group S.p.A., unveiled a 131-foot Sport Hybrid, M/Y Divine, an aluminum semidisplacement yacht powered with hybrid propulsion that allows the yacht to travel between 3 and 20 knots.

The three-decked, 131-foot yacht hosts 10 guests in five staterooms, with the owner's suite and study on the main deck, and can accommodates eight crewmembers.

The bulwarks feature glass cutouts that also serve as fold-down balconies.

The builder said “sport” indicates the performance of the yacht, which is equipped with two diesel engines that will give it a top speed of 20 knots, with the ability to easily cruise and with very low consumption at 16 knots.
