Tankoa Yachts reveals more details of S801 project

Tankoa Yachts reveals more details of S801 project

Italian yard Tankoa Yachts has revealed that its S801 flagship project is nearing the completion of its design and pre-engineering phase.

This 80 metre design by Francesco Paszkowski can trace its origins back to 2014. The imposing mast takes its styling cues from the 80 metre Italian naval ship Amerigo Vespucci, which was 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 80 metre steel and aluminium platform that would be built to Lloyd's and MCA standards, and can be extended to 88 metres upon request. In its 80 metre form the S801 will have a 13.5 metre beam, a 3.6 metre draught and a total interior volume of 2,500GT.

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 situated on the upper deck with a large cabin, two walk-in wardrobes, a massage area, superyacht spa and sauna, office and bathroom.

Michel Karsenti, sales director at Tankoa Yachts, added, "In recent times we’ve seen a number of yacht designs that followed popular trends, only to look obsolete after just a couple of years. This project is very different. Our aim is to create something radically new based on the elegant design language of a classic sailing ship. The result will certainly be exciting but also timeless — an important consideration for any discerning owner looking to maximise the resale value of a valuable investment.”

Power would come from a pair of Caterpillar 3516 diesel engines for a top speed of 16.5 knots and comfortable cruising at 15 knots. When trimmed back to an economical speed of 12.5 knots, the Tankoa S801 would boast a globetrotting range of 6,000 nautical miles, drawing on a total fuel capacity of 300,000 litres. Meanwhile, Vosper Naiad stabilisers would ensure a smooth cruising experience, both underway and at anchor.

Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the 72 metre Project S701, which is due for a public debut at the Monaco Yacht Show 2018, and 50 metre Project Elettra — a scheduled spring 2019 launch.
