Tankoa launches S701 Solo
The second yacht built on Tankoa’s 70/72-meter technical platform – sold in September 2016 to an experienced European client – his second build with Tankoa- has now been launched and final delivery to her owner is on track for November 15th, 2018.
Designed by Francesco Paszkowski – Solowill make her international debut at the 2018 Monaco Yacht Show from the 26thto the 29thof September.
According to Tankoa’s CEO, Euro Contenti – this is a true recognition of the shipyard core values and power that irrevocably consists in building yachts with clients, not for clients.
Mr Contenti declared: “As much as we were happy to see the client so happy and excited on the dock together with his family, we are truly proud to have developed such trustful relationship with such knowledgeable owner. Solo will be exhibited in Monaco and will surely be a show stopper as she is an exceptional yacht that will demonstrate that Tankoa is THE alternative to Northern European shipyard to build a high-quality yacht at reasonable cost and extreme flexibility.”
Although reminiscent of 69-meter Suerte (project S693), Solo is 3 meters longer and has a volume of approximately 1,600 Gross Registered Tons. Other key differences include catalytic underwater exhausts allowing for substantial gains of volume on all decks, smell free and smoke free outdoor decks; a larger winter garden;larger aft deck with 6-meter transversal glass pool, cut-down glass bulwarks sections for unobstructed sea views and a wide body upper deck allowing for an oversized panoramic salon. The longer waterline also allows for an optimized top speed in excess of 17 knots and reduced fuel consumption.
Solo has accommodations for 12 in six cabins, including the master suite on the gigantic private owner’s deck, a VIP suite and four doubles, two of them convertible into twins. In addition, the hair dressing/massage room and the owner’s study can also be converted into additional cabins as they are both equipped with an ensuite bathroom.
The beach club, a key feature onboard Solo,is a spacious and welcoming space. Equipped with generous sofas, bar, TV, oversized glass walled gym by Technogym with fold-out terrace, bathroom, it is also directly linked to the Spa zone.
The wide-body fully private owner’s deck has direct access from the touch-and-go helideck aft (rated at 4.5 tons for an Augusta 109 or most twin turbine helicopters). This exterior deck is also equipped with its own Jacuzzi, bar, salon, breakfast corner and day head with shower. A stairwell leads to the sun deck, with its shower hidden into the mast, saloon and generous sun pads.
Tenders and toys storage is split between the foredeck and a twin side-loading garage, providing room for two custom-built 7.50 m tenders, PWCs and water toys.The under lower deck is devoted to laundry room, pump room, storage, additional fridge and freezer, garbage treatment plant, technical spaces and direct access to the magnificent split-level engine room.
Solo is destined for charter and the owner’s brief called for a circulation plan that allowed the crew to work completely independently from the owner and guest areas for maximum privacy. He further requested a décor that is modern, elegant and warm. Both the GA and décor are the result of a collaborative effort by Francesco Paszkowski and Margherita Casprini.
