The yacht, which is the third hull in Tankoa’s 50 metre series following Bintador and Vertige, was launched in Genoa on September 12 and sold by Camper & Nicholsons.

Started on spec, Olokun was sold in March 2020 and features a striking black hull and metallic grey superstructure.

Designed by Francesco Paszkowski, Olokun features a layout largely the same as the two sisterships but with two main differences. The main deck aft will be wholly dedicated to a large lounging area while the forward master cabin will feature a private lounge that can be converted into an extra ensuite cabin.

Previously speaking about the alteration, Tankoa chief executive Vincenzo Poerio said:  “S501 hull number three was started on spec and the owner came into the project quite late during construction, but as a boutique shipyard we wanted to offer him maximum flexibility to tailor the yacht to his personal needs."

Poerio described the master cabin as "a good example".

"It meant cutting a hole in the bulkhead and re-routing all the wiring so his private office could be converted into a cabin." The interior decor meanwhile has been designed by Casadio Miami.

Power will come from conventional diesel propulsion for a top speed of 17.5 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots.
