Tankoa to build 50m hybrid yacht Project Elettra

Italian yard Tankoa Yachts announced at the Monaco Yacht Show 2017 today (September 29) that it will be building a new 49.9 metre hybrid yacht on speculation.

Currently known as Project Elettra, this all-aluminium yacht is due to launch in 2019 as hull number S502 from Tankoa — making her the sistership to Vertige, which is currently on display in Port Hercules.

Exterior design comes courtesy of Francesco Paszkowski, while the naval architecture was developed by Studio Francesco Rogantin. A 9.4 metre beam will allow for a spacious interior without exceeding the all-important 500GT mark, but the interior designer has not been revealed as yet.

MYC and LY3 compliant, Project Elettra’s accommodation will allow for up to 12 guest split between six cabins, including a main deck owner’s cabin, complete with walk-in wardrobe and fold-out balconies on both sides.

Meanwhile, the lower deck will include three double cabins and two twin cabins, as well as four crew cabins. The bridge deck captain’s cabin completes the on board accommodation. Key features include a superyacht beach club back aft, a side-loading tender garage and a sundeck Jacuzzi.

Power will come from diesel-electric powerplant, which comprises a pair of 1,200hp MTU 8V4000 M54 engines and a 292KW battery bank for a transatlantic range of 3,400 nautical miles at 12 knots. In full diesel mode, Project Elettra will be capable of a top speed of 18 knots, while the full-electric mode will allow for silent cruising at eight knots.

Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the 72 metre Tankoa S701, which is due to hit the water next year.
