Tankoa on schedule for 2019 and 2020 deliveries
Published: Friday, 16 November 2018
Tankoa 50-metre Elettra’s construction is on schedule for delivery to her European owner in May 2019.
Based on a similar design to Vertige, the first in 50-metre series, she differs from her predecessor in three key aspects:
- Project Elettra is a true hybrid yacht.
- She will have 5 cabins with a main deck owner’s suite and four guest cabins on the lower deck.
- Her foredeck has been equipped with a touch-and-go helipad.
She is powered by twin MTU 8V4000M54 (895 kW) and two electric motors (300 kW) driven by two variable speed variable speed generators (250 kW). Her interior design is by Francesco Paszkowski Design in collaboration with Margherita Casprini and will call for light yet modern tones and a predominance of natural materials.
Tankoa building two more 50-metre 165’ hulls for delivery in 2020
The yard has started production of hull #3 and #4 of the 50-metre series. Construction work on hull #3 is already well advanced at Tankoa’s other metalwork facility in La Spezia. Both 50-metre projects are sister-ships to S501 Vertige.
These two new, sub-500GT superyachts will replicate the dynamic yet graceful exterior styling of their predecessors and are based on the same naval architectural platform to provide unprecedented speed-consumption ratios.
The general arrangement is also similar with fold-down terraces in the owner’s suite on the main deck forward, a side-loading tender garage aft, and a generous transom beach club.
However, prospective clients will still be able to tailor both the interiors and exterior layout to suit their own preferences, subject to contracts being signed 14 months before final delivery date.
Hull #3 will be powered with conventional diesel propulsion, whereas #4 will come with a hybrid propulsion package. Like her sister-ship (hull #2 in the series), she will have four flexible propulsion modes: diesel-electric, full hybrid, traditional diesel and full-speed mode.
Hull #3 will be moved to the outfitting shed at our state-of-the-art completion facility in Genoa in late December this year, where finishing works will start early January for a scheduled delivery in May 2020. Hull #4 will be delivered in November 2020.
Both yachts have been started on spec using Tankoa’s own capital.
