Tankoa issues construction update 50m hybrid yacht Project Elettra

Italian yard Tankoa Yachts has issued an update on its in-build 49.9 metre hybrid superyacht Project Elettra, which has reached a number of construction milestones.

The all-aluminium yacht remains on track for her scheduled May 2019 delivery to her European owners, the yard said.

Tankoa has revealed that the superstructure fairing is underway and the hull is almost complete, the stainless steel anchor recesses have been installed and the thermal and acoustic insulation of the lower and main decks is almost complete.

The laying of electric wires and piping is almost complete on the lower and main decks and the furniture is currently being installed the lower deck. All the deck's bulkheads have been completed and the engine room equipment has been fitted.

As the second hull in the yard's 50 metre series, Elettra will be the sistership to Vertige, but will feature three key differences.

She will be a "true hybrid yacht", according to the yard, and will feature five cabins, including a main deck owners' suite and four guest cabins on the lower deck, and a touch and go helipad on the foredeck.

Exterior and interior design comes courtesy of Francesco Paszkowski. The interior decor has been worked on in collaboration with Magherita Casprini and will feature "light modern tones" and "natural materials".

The naval architecture meanwhile was developed by Studio Francesco Rogantin. A 9.4 metre beam will allow for a spacious interior without exceeding the 500GT mark.

Elettra will accommodate 10 guests in a five cabins, comprising three VIP cabins with king size beds and two guest cabins with twin berths on the lower deck. The master suite meanwhile, which comes equipped with an office and sitting room, will sit on the main deck alongside the saloon, galley and dining room.

Other key features include a superyacht beach club back aft, a side-loading tender garage, alfresco bar and sundeck Jacuzzi.

Power will come from diesel-electric powerplant, which comprises a pair of MTU 8V4000M54 (895 kW) and two electric motors (300kW) driven by two variable speed generators (250kW) for a transatlantic range of 4,000 nautical miles at 12 knots.

In "traditional mode", which utilises the use of both main Diesel engines, Project Elettra will be capable of a top speed of 17 knots. The full-electric mode will allow for silent cruising at eight knots while the full speed mode, which uses both main engines and generators, will see the yacht reach a top speed of 18 knots.
