Tankoa Yachts reveals S621 superyacht project

29 September 2016 • Written by Chris Jefferies

Italian yard Tankoa Yachts has revealed a new superyacht project called S621 today (September 29) at the Monaco Yacht Show.

Measuring 62 metres LOA, this steel-hulled yacht features exterior design by Francesco Paszkowski and naval architecture by Vincenzo Ruggiero.

S621 will have a top speed of 16.5 knots

Paskowski worked with Margherita Casprini for the interiors on the Tankoa S621, which are inspired by the yard’s 2015 launch Suerte and the in-build S501, but with even larger windows.

Guido Orsi, president of Tankoa Yachts, said: “When we started designing the model S621, we were looking for a new kind of yacht. At the end of the journey we reached something we consider unique.”

The total guest and crew accommodation is yet to be confirmed, but the full-beam master suite includes a private lounge, separate office, and fold-out superyacht terrace.

Moving aft and the main saloon on the Tankoa S621 features a dining area with seating for up to 12, and a lounge with two facing sofas and four armchairs, creating an area that the yard describes as harmonious and elegant.

Other key features on board include a huge superyacht beach club, reminiscent of much larger yachts, and an aft-deck infinity pool. For a smooth ride and a comfortable night’s sleep at anchor, Tankoa will be fitting zero-speed stabilisers from Vosper Naiad.

Power comes from a pair of 1,851hp Caterpillar 3512 engines for a top speed of 16.5 knots and a maximum cruising range of 4,500 nautical miles at 12 knots. With a beam of 10.4 metres, the Tankoa S621 will have a maximum displacement of 900 tonnes.
