The successful story of the Italian boutique shipyard’s bestseller.
In a profitable year with many new models, the Tankoa S501 series remains the Italian shipyard’s most recognized. In fact, even with recent unveilings like Apache and Linea Sportiva, the series is its great masterpiece. The shipyard is preparing to put the fourth hull of this 50-meter range in the water in February 2022. The fifth hull, meanwhile, recently sold and will launch in summer 2022.
Her timeless design, signed by Francesco Paszkowski’s studio, is sleek and ingenious. Together with her superior engineering, the Tankoa S501 is one of the most efficient yachts on the market. Above all, the first model, Bintador, opened a new horizon toward fuel efficiency and sustainability. Tankoa installed hybrid propulsion onboard during her construction in 2019.
“It is pretty clear how eco-sustainability has become a fundamental aspect of our daily life, and this is also reflected in yachting.” says Vincenzo Poerio, Tankoa’s CEO. “And it’s not only a matter of propulsion. Regarding our market segment, I mean yachts from 45 to 90 meters in steel and aluminum, I like to point out firstly that most of the parts which we build for the yachts are recyclable. Even at the level of waste disposal, the latest technologies have helped us to comply with the increasingly stringent regulations in the field of waste treatment to protect the marine ecosystem.”
Handcrafted to the owner’s specifications, the Tankoa S501 is a wonder of comfort and modern elegance, just under 500 gross tons thanks to the aluminium hull. Glass bulwarks and fold-out balconies maximize the many uninterrupted views of water and landscape. The generous relaxation areas are wide-open spaces that invite owners to spread out, to roam, to share or relish their privacy.
“Today the owners know very well what they want whether they are on their first yacht or they are highly experienced owners, raising the level of customization required. Over the years we have proposed ourselves to the market as a ‘boutique shipyard,’ always ready to satisfy clients’ requests, and this choice now more than ever is paying off,” states Poerio.
