The new Italian shipyard Tankoa Yachts who have unveiled their first yacht, Suerte, at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show, now released two new variants of their Fully Custom Projects (FCP) available for clients and brokers to develop. The new S531 and S532 are two 53 metre projects that is set to offer guests a customisable platform, presenting an interior volume similar to that of 60 metre yachts.
The S531 is designed to offer a unique onboard experience where living spaces can be changed and restyled through a series of dividing glass doors that increase interior or exterior areas as needed by guests. Francesco Paszkowski is the man behind the design of the project, and styled the S531 with a striking exterior and functional layout inside. The design, based on Tankoa’s 10.30 metre wide platform, will offer accommodation for 12 guests. The widest part of the yacht on main deck forward is devoted to the VIP and master suites. These two staterooms each have their own folding terraces, with the aft part of the lower deck houses the three remaining guest cabins.
Outside, large exterior spaces are available for guest relaxation and dining experiences. The flybridge offers a total of 160 square metres of living space, customisable to house any of the client’s preferred amenities. Trendy sun awnings have been designed and can easily be installed by the crew.
The S532 is based in the same platform as the S531, but will have increased space dedicated to interior living areas, leading to a gross tonnage of over 780GT. The same accommodation layout is available, but Paszkowski created larger aft entertainment areas in the main and upper saloons, with a panoramic saloon and dining room surrounded by full height windows.
Large crew quarters are planned for forward on the lower deck, with a tender bay aft of the engine room that will be converted into a beach club when at anchor. Both variants will offer a calculated range of 4,000 nm with top speeds of 18 knots while able to cruise at 15 knots.
The yard is currently working on two projects, the S501 and the S701, currently under construction at the yard in Genoa. The all aluminium S501 has been sold by Yacht-Ology in collaboration with Aquila yachting to a French client, and was moved to the brand’s completion shed in Genoa. Her engines and generators are already in and fairing will be started in December. The interior mock-up has been approved by the owner and production of all the cabins will start before the end of the year. Delivery is scheduled on time in April 2017.
Though the S701 is yet to be sold, work has begun on the 71 metre project, and the last section of the transom in stainless steel is currently being welded. Tankoa report that the metal work on both the hull and superstructures is over 90% completed and engines and generators are in. She has a delivery time of 24 months.
