Italian designer and long-time Tankoa collaborator, Francesco Paszkowski behind the design of Solo while Margherita Casprini took the lead in the custom interior spaces inside the yacht. Just some of the interior highlights include a winter garden on the main deck with a staircase down to beach deck on the port side. The side bulwarks on the main deck have been lowered and filled with glass panels, providing extra light into the main saloon. Altogether, there are six staterooms across the yacht including a master suite, a VIP stateroom and four guest cabins on the lower deck.

Solo’s upper deck is dedicated entirely to the use of the owner with a private master apartment that links forward to a private terrace and jacuzzi and aft to the certified helipad and second sun lounge area.
