She features Francesco Paszowski ’s interior and exterior design and will be equipped with the latest-generation hybrid propulsion system, designed through the combined efforts of MAN and Siemens.Tankoa S501 hull 4 yacht in buildPhoto: Giuliano SargentiniTankoa S501 hull 4 yacht in buildPhoto: Giuliano Sargentini“The shipyard is particularly satisfied as this is the second yacht sold after Olokun in what has been a very difficult year for everyone,” says Tankoa Sales Manager Giuseppe Mazza. “It is also our second 50-metre project with hybrid propulsion, in this case developed in collaboration with MAN and Siemens, and we’ve already started construction on spec of a fifth hull in the 50m series that will be ready for delivery in June 2022.”
