Tankoa Yachts unveils 50 metre superyacht S501

Genova based shipyard, Tankoa Yachts, is proud to announce their latest design, the 50 metre motor yacht, S501. The company have confirmed that four clients have already shown interest in the new model, which will be available in two different hull designs.

In her full displacement version, the S501 will boast a maximum speed of 16-18 knots, while in her semi-displacement variant, she will be capable of 27 knots. Both versions will be entirely built in aluminum light alloy 5083.

Guests on board S501 are guaranteed the utmost comfort, with the vessel being designed with a modified plumb bow, a wide hard chine and high free board to minimise spray when at speed. Three huge sun pads and three external dining areas are part of the initial design package, and a swimming pool may also be included in the package. The vessel boasts an oversized teak-finished tender garage for a 6,50 meter RIB, that converts to a real beach-club.

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.

The S501 has been created around fundamental layout criteria and technical parameters collected from yacht owners, captains, surveyors and engineers. Designer 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 individual style. The main parameters included simple administration and reduced management cost, reasonable consumption, modern amenities, a design within 499 GT, a hull design from cruise ships and extended outdoor spaces, among others. Full project details and 3D movie will be officially released at the 2014 Monaco Yacht Show.
