25 September 2019• Written by Miranda Blazeby

Tankoa's 50 metre S501 hybrid superyacht Bintador has been unveiled at the Monaco Yacht Show.

It comes after the new sub-500GT superyacht, which is based on the same naval architecture of Vertige, was been handed over to her French owners ahead of its international debut.

It comes after the yacht was launched at a private ceremony at the Genoa based yard in May.

While based on the Vertige platform, Bintador has a number of differences, namely her hybrid propulsion package. She also includes accommodation for 10 guests across five cabins, with the galley located on the main deck, instead of the lower deck.

The yacht, which was developed personally with the owner, also features a touch and go helipad on the foredeck, as well as an aluminium hull and superstructure.

The hybrid propulsion system consists of twin MTU 8V4000M54 engines and two 300kW electric motors, allowing the yacht to operate in four "modes".

These are DEM (diesel electric mode), for a top speed of 10.5 knots, hybrid model, for a top speed of 12 knots, traditional mode, for a top speed of 16.5 knots, and full speed mode for a top speed of 18 knots.

Interior design meanwhile, which was handled by Francesco Paszkowski Design in collaboration with Margherita Casprini, has been described as combining “light and modern tones with an abundance of natural materials.”

The lower deck is equipped with a gym, beach club, two VIP cabins and two guest cabins, as well as the crew quarters.

The master suite, with an office, lounge and fold-out terrace sits on the main deck, alongside the cockpit, galley, dining room and saloon. The upper deck includes a number of al fresco relaxation areas, as well as access to the sky lounge.
