Fourth 50 metre Tankoa superyacht Kinda delivered

1 June 2022• Written by Katia Damborsky

Italian yard Tankoa has announced the delivery of the fourth hull in its all-aluminium S501 series, named Kinda

This comes after the yacht hit the water for the first time in March 2022. Kinda was built on speculation and she is the sistership to Vertige, Bintador and Olokun.

This model's hybrid propulsion system is based on Bintador's and will provide three cruising modes: diesel-mechanical, diesel-electric and full-electric. Developed in collaboration with MAN and Siemens, this system is designed to offer increased fuel efficiency, improved comfort while cruising at night and extend the servicing time of the generators.

Francesco Paszkowski’s exterior design was key in the owner’s decision to commission the build, along with the quality of Tankoa’s build and the option to install a hybrid propulsion system, the yard said.

She marks the first unit in the series to feature a forward swimming pool.

Speaking about the construction, Tankoa's chief executive officer Vicenzo Poerio said: “As our second yacht with hybrid propulsion, this launch confirms we are at the forefront of technological research in order to meet the needs of even the most sophisticated owners."

The yacht has accommodation for up to 12 in six cabins, including a full-beam VIP suite and master stateroom on the main deck forward. 

Sistership Olokun was launched in September 2020

Meanwhile work on the fifth hull of the 50-metre series is ongoing. This hull will have a conventional propulsion system and is set for delivery later this year. 

Tankoa also stated that construction on a sixth hull has been started on speculation.
