Tankoa Yachts – S501, M/Y Vertige, successfully launched


The second unit of Tankoa Yachts - sold in February 2015 to an experienced French client, has been launched, the delivery is expected to be in early April 2017.

According to Tankoa's CEO, Euro Contenti, the project is a true recognition of the "boutique shipyard's" values which fundamentally support the concept of building yachts ‘with clients’, and not just ‘for clients.’

Mr Contenti declared, "we are extremely proud that the client, his surveyor and broker, Daniel Bussani from Aquila Yachting, decided Tankoa was the most suitable shipyard to build his new yacht after investigating a number of European builders".

The yard say that the Tankoa S501 Vertige represents an excellent example of the vital close cooperation between a high quality builder, and a marketing / sales organisation that is in daily contact with yacht owners, captains and surveyors.

About the design

Tankoa’s management team worked in close collaboration with Francesco Paszkowski to design the project in order to reach the following goals:*  To achieve a perfectly balanced and fluid timeless design that will set it apart from what is currently offered on the market.* To offer perfect circulation flows for owners and guest to move from deck to deck, and from inside to outside without interfering with the working crew,  while giving them a total freedom of movement to carry on their tasks.* To give the owner in a 499 Gross Tons package, the type of amenities and systems commonly found on much larger yachts.

Hull number one of the S501 design is a six cabin yacht, including main deck full beam Owners and Vip suite, 2 Vip and 2 Guest cabins on the lower deck, gym, home cinema, a 7 meter tender garage among other amenities, as well as floor to ceiling windows and hydraulic balconies in the Owners cabin and on the aft deck.

Keeping permanent visual contact with the sea was one of the other tasks assigned to Francesco Paszkowski’s design team. His design studio worked in cooperation with Margherita Casprini on the interiors, and as per client’s request, they had an overall brief to reflect a "modern but warm" atmosphere.

The yard claims that the result will be one of the most beautiful 50 metre yachts ever built under the 500 gross ton mark.  In fact they say that the level of details, both interior and exterior, is in line with what everyone usually expects onboard larger yachts.

This first model of project S501 M/Y Vertige is a full displacement version, offering a range of 5,000 Nautical Miles at 12 knots, and a top speed of 16 knots. She is entirely built in aluminium light alloy 5083, and builder engineer Albert McIlroy the Owner’s representative, who has been building a number of yachts worldwide, carefully followed the construction.
