Tankoa’s S801 project approaches completion
A series of significant launches
Tankoa Yachts has revealed the latest version of hull S801, the innovative 80m project styled by Francesco Paszkowski that is poised to take the custom builder into the megayacht market. The announcement comes after a series of significant launches and new orders for the Genoa-based yard. 70m Suerte was launched in July 2015, followed by 50m Vertige in May 2017. Hull S701 is due to make her debut at the 2018 Monaco Yacht Show. And S502, the new 50m-hybrid Elettra project, is in build with delivery slated for spring 2019. The sophisticated design and engineering of S801, destined to become the flagship of the Tankoa fleet, is now approaching completion. Once finalised, it will provide the platform for the brand’s megayacht range from 80-88m. The restyled Tankoa S801 is based on an 80m technical platform with a 13.5m beam and a volume of approximately 2,500GT. The first section of the main deck will be full beam in order to provide the maximum interior volume for a yacht of her size.
The layout has been developed on five deck levels, including the sundeck. The main deck features an enormous salon with five VIP suites with ensuite facilities located forward to ensure optimal acoustic comfort. The extensive owner’s apartment occupies the forward section of the upper deck and comprises the master stateroom with two walk-in wardrobes, a palatial bathroom, massage parlour, private sauna and personal studio. This is just a taste of the general arrangement of the S801, as naturally the shipyard is at the disposable of individual owners to customise the layout according to his or her wishes. With S801’s high-tensile steel hull and superstructure of aluminium and other lightweight alloys, Tankoa Yachts is setting out on a trajectory to develop a yacht that will be among the most innovative projects of its kind in terms of aesthetics, construction and technology. The engineering design, onboard systems and other technical specifications are entering the final stages.
