Tankoa Yachts presents an 80m superyacht design inspired by a classic ship

The Genoa-based yard Tankoa Yachts has revealed an 80-metre motor yacht concept, its largest design to date, inspired by a classic Italian tall ship.

The S801 concept penned by Francesco Paszkowski, takes styling cues from the Amerigo Vespucci, a famous 80m Italian Navy ship launched in 1931. The yard describes the superstructure as appearing to be “suspended in mid-air, an interpretation of how the sailing ship would appear if her rig was shifted aft”.

The S801 is based on an 80m platform that is extendable to 88m at an owner’s request. In its 80m form the S801 will have a 13.5m beam and measure 2,500GT. The steel and aluminium yacht will feature four decks, plus a sundeck. Five VIP cabins will be located on the main deck, rather than on the lower deck as is more common, to minimise engine noise in these spaces. The owner’s suite will be on the upper deck with a large cabin, two walk-in wardrobes, a massage area, spa and sauna, office and bathroom. The technical specifications, principal system layouts and engineering are expected to be completed over the next few months.

The yard is currently working on the 69.3 metre S963 motor yacht, which is due for delivery in July 2015. The S801 follows their recent presentation of the 70 metre S701 and 50 metre S501 concepts at the Monaco Yacht Show.
