Project: Tankoa S801

Tankoa Yachts has revealed the latest version of hull S801, the innovative eighty meter project styled by Francesco Paszkowski.  The announcement comes after a series of significant launches and new orders for the Genoa-based yard.  Tankoa has launched three super yachts from the famed seventy meter Suerte C101 in July 2015, to S501 in May 2017, and hull S701 this Summer 2018.  The sophisticated design and engineering of S801, destined to become the flagship of the Tankoa fleet, is approaching completion. Once finalized, it will provide the platform for the brand’s super yacht range from over eighty meters.  The restyled Tankoa S801 is based on an 80m technical platform with a 13.5m beam and a volume of approximately 2500 Gross Tonnage. The first section of the main deck will be full beam in order to provide the maximum interior volume.  The layout has been developed on five deck levels, including the sundeck. The main deck features an enormous salon with five VIP suites with ensuite facilities located forward to ensure optimal acoustic comfort. The extensive owner’s apartment occupies the forward section of the upper deck and comprises the master stateroom with two walk-in wardrobes, a palatial bathroom, massage parlor, private sauna and personal studio. This is just a taste of the general arrangement of the S801, as naturally the shipyard is at the disposable of individual owners to customize the layout according to his or her wishes. Inspiration for the exterior styling, which appears to float between the sea and sky like sails in the wind, came to Francesco Paszkowski after seeing the Amerigo Vespucci, one of the most famous tall ships afloat. In fact, the various deck levels appear suspended, breaking up the superstructure and giving the impression of airiness and lightness rare for a yacht of this size and volume.  With S801’s high-tensile steel hull and superstructure of aluminium and other lightweight alloys, Tankoa Yachts is setting out on a trajectory to develop a yacht that will be among the most innovative projects of its kind in terms of aesthetics, construction and technology. The engineering design, on-board systems and other technical specifications are entering the final stages.  Tankoa S801 is to be powered by twin Cats 2682hp which will deliver speeds up to 16 knots and acruise of fifteen knots, with an economic long range of twelve knots delivering autonomy for up to six thousand nautical miles.
