The fifth hull in Tankoa‘s 50 metre all-aluminium S501 series has hit the water at the Italian shipbuilder’s Genoa facility.
The unnamed project was started on speculation and sold to a European owner in September 2021, with delivery scheduled for early next year.
The yacht was rolled out of the construction shed and lowered into the water in a private ceremony held on October 22. The hull now joins sisterships Kinda and Olokun on the water.
The fifth hull in the S501 series features design from long-term Tankoa collaborator Francesco Paszkowski, working in collaboration with Giorgio Cassetta for the interior. This marks a change for the series, which has, until now, featured Francesco Paszkowski on both interior and exterior.
The design team has included several customisations to suit her young European owner, including a pair of guest cabins on the main deck, an oversized sundeck and enlarged windows.
The fifth hull also features an increased focus on audio-visual entertainment, with a swimming pool with integrated speakers and state-of-the-art television screens installed throughout.
Powered by conventional diesel engines, she is expected to reach top speeds of around 18 knots.
Her interior design marks a new venture for Giorgio Cassetta, whose studio has also only worked on a handful of yacht interiors to date. One of its most recent interior designs can be seen on the 31 metre Vivace, which will be on display at the upcoming Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
According to BOAT Pro data, there are six Tankoa superyachts currently in build, the largest of which is the 58 metre T580.
