TANKOA, the first boutique shipyard with a multicultural approach to yachts construction, announces that the new S501 M/Y Vertige will make her official debut at next Monaco Yacht Show 2017 (27 to 30 of September).
The second unit of Tankoa Yachts – sold in February 2015 to an experienced French client after a successful delivery and a busy charter season in the Mediterranean will make her official debut at the next September Monaco Yacht Show 2017.
Tankoa S501 Vertige represents the quintessence of the result between a high quality builder and a marketing and sales organization that is in daily contact with yacht Owners, Captains and Surveyors.
S501 M/Y VERTIGE DESIGN STATEMENT
Tankoa’s management team worked in close collaboration with Francesco Paszkowski to design the project and fulfill the following set goals:
- Achieve a perfectly balanced, fluid and timeless design that will not look like what is currently offered on the market.
- Offer perfect circulation flows for owners and guests, providing them with the possibility to move from deck to deck and from inside to outside area without interfering with the working crew, while at the same time giving the crew total freedom of movement to carry on with their tasks.
- Provide a 499 gross ton package for the Owner with amenities and features commonly found on much larger yachts.
- S501 hull N°1 is a six cabins yacht that includes: main deck full beam Owner and Vip suite, two Vips and two guest cabins on the lower deck, gym, home cinema on the upper deck, a 7-meter tender garage, two jet skis and rescue tender forward. Other amenities include floor to ceiling windows, foldout hydraulic terraces in the owner’s suite and on the aft deck increasing the already considerable available space…
Allowing permanent visual contact with the sea was one of the other tasks assigned to Francesco Paszkowski’s design team. Interiors, as per client’s request, were designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design Studio in cooperation with Margherita Casprini and reflect a “modern but warm” atmosphere.
The result will simply be one of the most beautiful 50-meter yacht ever build under 500 GRT. The level of detailing, both inside and outside, is in line with what everyone usually expects to find on-board much larger yachts.
About TANKOA YACHTS
TANKOA Yachts is a project born late in 2008, thanks to a very competent team of managers and investors 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 mainly 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 of yacht construction” by integrating various criteria. At TANKOA, the management team is proud to have successfully merged business ethics, high quality precision engineering, and Italian DNA in 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 architect Professor Vincenzo Ruggiero. They are working together on the first two yachts of 70 meters, following TANKOA’s philosophy guidelines in yacht construction, based on total custom production where quality, exclusivity, precision and reliability are the main focuses.
