Tankoa Yachts presents 70m superyacht concept Milano at Dubai International Boat Show

4 March 2024 • Written by Dea Jusufi

Tankoa Yachts has revealed a 70-metre superyacht concept in a first-time collaboration with Nauta Design. The project has been named Milano for its “stylish” exterior lines, reflecting the city’s heritage of fashion and design as well as gesturing to Nauta Design's hometown.

"We have never had the opportunity to build a boat together," said Vincenzo Poerio, CEO of Tankoa Yachts. "[So] collaborating with Nauta Design, with whom we share a rich history of mutual respect and friendship spanning three decades, is truly gratifying."

Milano has a 11.8-metre beam

Milano's "great [design] achievement" begins in the engine room, which has been relegated to a dedicated “under-lower deck”. This allows four guest cabins to be placed on the lower deck, offering direct access to the yacht's 145-square-metre beach club. The beach club will benefit from a 6.5-metre swimming pool and folding hull platforms for increased space. 

At the conference, project co-ordinator Martino Majno noted that the "huge outside area" was born from clients' increasing need to be closer to the water.

The remainder of the guest accommodation will be found on the main deck, which includes two VIP cabins with fold-out terraces.

The superyacht will also have a dedicated owner's deck, featuring an 80-square-metre master cabin that leads out to a private bow area with a pool, lounge space and helideck. Adjacent to the cabin is an office, walk-in closet and his and hers bathroom, with al fresco dining aft.

Interiors are “delicate” and “not over-designed”, according to Majno, with renderings revealing a white and coral colour palette and “environmentally friendly” materials. This includes the use of natural woods, textured stones and leathers.

The main saloon is connected to an open air lounge aft and a dining area forward

Other highlights include a bridge deck "cinema room" and a gym and sauna on the lower deck. Up top, the sundeck functions as a 360-degree observation deck with its two L-shaped, forward-facing sofas and glass walls. There will also be a bar and several sunpads.

“[Milano] is an honest interpretation of our design philosophy,” explained Majno. “For us, an aesthetic comes at the end [of the process]. Simple things are things that last."

The main deck garage will be able to store two tenders measuring nine metres and 8.5 metres

Milano can be equipped either with diesel-electric propulsion system or methanol fuel cells providing up to 200kWh of power. The diesel-electric setup will allow the yacht to reach a top speed of 16.5 knots as well as power the hotel load.

According to BOATPro, Tankoa Yachts has eight units currently under construction. The news follows the launch of the first T450, Go, which was sold to a young North American client in 2021.
