Tankoa Yachts Resumes Production Operations

Italian yard Tankoa Yachts has resumed operations at its Genoa based shipyard following disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

The shipyard said it had reopened on May 4th in compliance with the Italian government’s regulations allowing manufacturing companies to return to work.

The reopening will be based on the country’s COVID-19 “coping guidelines” that were signed off at the end of last month.

As a result, Tankoa has restarted all production activities and estimates all yachts to be delivered on schedule.

It currently has two 50 metre superyachts under construction, as well as a number of refits.

Speaking about the reopening, Tankoa Yachts chief executive Vincenzo Poerio said: “We dedicated our utmost attention to a no-compromise safety, aiming to secure a duly protected environment to all work force. This was really well received by the whole Tankoa team.”

It comes after a number of shipyards have resumed operations, including the Ferretti Group in Italy and Yachting Developments in New Zealand.
