This latest project follow will follow Vertige, Bintador and Olokun as the fourth yacht to be built form Tankoa’s 50-metre series. “The shipyard is particularly satisfied as this is the second yacht sold after Olokun in what has been a very difficult year for everyone,” explained Tankoa Sales Manager Giuseppe Mazza. “It is also our second 50-metre project with hybrid propulsion, in this case developed in collaboration with MAN and Siemens, and we’ve already started construction on spec of a fifth hull in the 50m series that will be ready for delivery in June 2022.”
Bintador was the first unit of the S501 model to be built with a hybrid propulsion system, and made her debut at the 2019 Monaco Yacht Show. Since the first sale of this distinctive Tankoa S501 was announced in 2015, the 50m superyacht model has enjoyed great success in the market.
The owner of this latest unit was convinced by the elegant Fraqncesco Paszkowski exterior design, along with Tankoa’s build quality and the opportunity to install the latest-generation hybrid propulsion system from MAN/Siemens to enjoy maximum comfort.
Tankoa CEO Vincenzo Poerio recently announced that the Genoa-based shipyard will be expanding its production capacity and intends to continue to build on spec in order to reduce delivery times for prospective owners.
