Tankoa Yachts announces latest 50m project – the S501

Full project details and 3D movie will be officially released at the 2014 Monaco Yacht Show

Genova based boutique shipyard Tankoa Yachts is proud to announce the latest addition to their lineup: the 50 meter/164’ Paszkowski designed motor yacht,code named S501.

 

Following the construction contract for S693, their 69.4 meter yacht due for delivery in July, 2015, Tankoa benefited in the tremendous interest of the brokerage community as well as directly from Yacht-Ology’s clients who came to Genova to visit what is considered a new "case history" in the Italian yachting industry.

 

The increasing attention given to Tankoa Yachts allowed Yacht-Ology to spot the substantial demand for a 50 meter/499 GT yacht with modern design, the latest trends in amenities and top-notch engineering. So far, four clients have shown a solid interest for this new model that will be available with two different hull designs.

In its full displacement version, the S501 will be capable of a 16 or 18 knot top speed, depending on the chosen power package, while in its semi-displacement variant, she will be capable of 27 knots.

Both versions will be entirely built in aluminum light alloy 5083.

 

TANKOA S501, PACKAGE AND PHILOSOPHY

The S501 has been created around fundamental layout criteria and technical parameters collected from yacht owners, captains, surveyors and engineers. The genesis of the project did not rise from a specific design idea. At this stage, Francesco Paszkowski received the list of non-negotiable items that had to be part of the new project, which he drew in accordance to his style and special feel.

    The main parameters that were given to the designer and ended up being an integral part of the project:
  • Simple administration and reduced management cost. The S501's displacement will be kept under the 500 Gross Tons mark.
  • Reasonable consumption. The S501 hull - even in its full displacement version - will be built in light alloy to reduce weight and the need for kW at a given speed. Three power packages will be offered for respective top speeds of 16, 18 and 27 knots.
  • Amenities. Under both technical and layout aspects, the S501 concept derives from the principle that form follows function. While most of the 50 meter yachts available on the market are evolutions of existing models, with new “trends” in equipment and amenities fitted at a later date, the S501 has been conceived and engineered around the modern amenities.
  • Design within 499 GT. The choice of Francesco Paszkowski was a natural fit considering the long lasting relationship between the star designer and Tankoa’s executives. His mission was clear: to design a breath-taking yacht that would allow the integration of all modern equipment and amenities while maximizing guest and owner space while staying at 499 GT.
  • Hull design from cruise ships. The hull design has been assigned to Massimo Visibelli whose work is famous in the cruise ship industry. He is also considered an eminent design expert of hydrofoil hulls.
  • Running comfort. Most clients are concerned about silence and running comfort. For these reasons, S501 has been designed with a modified plumb bow, a wide hard chine and high free board to minimize spray when at speed.
  • Enjoying the sea. Another widespread desire of yacht owners is to enjoy the sea around them. For this reason, the Tankoa S501 is equipped with hydraulic lateral foldout terraces on the aft deck, floor to ceiling windows in the dining room, safety-glass balconies aft, sliding side windows in the dining room, foldout balconies in the master cabin, and a panoramic view of the sea from wherever owners or guests may be seated.
  • Extended outdoor spaces. Three huge sun pads and three external dining areas are part of the initial design package offered with the S501. A swimming pool may also be included in the package.
  • Oversized teak-finished tender garage for a 6,50 meter RIB, that converts to a real beach-club once the transom door is opened.

About TANKOA YACHTS TANKOA Yachts is a project born late in 2008, thanks to a very competent team of managers and investor already involved in the yachting industry, and with a long professional history of successes. Since its inception, TANKOA Yachts' business plan is based on a new philosophy of yacht construction. “Boutique Shipyard” are the most accurate words to describe TANKOA's philosophy, a top quality shipyard focused on yachts ranging from 50 to 90 meters. Limited production, attention to details, use of the latest technologies, precision, rich specifications, ethics and emphasis on Italian building excellence are just a few of TANKOA's values. TANKOA Yachts has opted for “a multi-cultural approach to yacht construction” by integrating various criteria. At TANKOA, the management team is proud to have successfully merged German business ethics, Dutch quality engineering, Japanese precision and Italian design and flexibility.

 

Two experienced and well-known professionals were deeply involved from the first steps of this fascinating industrial history: world renowned and respected designer Francesco Paszkowski and naval architecture professor Vincenzo Ruggiero. They are working together on the first two yachts according to TANKOA's philosophy guidelines in yacht construction, based on totally custom production where quality, exclusivity, precision and reliability are the main focus.
