New 50m Tankoa s501 hybrid succesfully launched

The 50m/165’ Tankoa S501 Hybrid has been successfully launched at the Genoa shipyard. 

Following final fit out and dock trials, the yacht will undergo intensive sea trials prior to delivery to her European owner, in time for the summer season and for the official World debut at 2019 Monaco Yacht Show (September 25-28). 

Based on a similar design to Vertige, the first in Tankoa’s 50-metre series, S501 Hybrid differs from her predecessor under five key aspects:

– Tankoa S501 hull #2 is powered with hybrid propulsion package.

– She will be a 5-cabin with a main deck owner’s suite and four guest cabins on the lower deck.

– The galley is on the main deck, instead of lower deck.

The yacht is powered by twin MTU 8V4000M54 (895 kW) and two 300 kW electric motors fed by two 250 kW variable speed generators.

The interior design is by Francesco Paszkowski Design in collaboration with Magherita Casprini and combines light and modern tones with an abundance of natural materials.

S501 Hybrid’s lower deckwill be equipped with a gym and beach club, two VIP cabins with king-size beds and two guest cabins with twin berths, plus crew quarters and service areas.

On main deck, the cockpit comes with an oversized sun bed, U-shaped sofa, coffee tables and bar. 

The interior offers a spacious saloon, dining room, galley, and superb master suite with office and lounge equipped with fold-down terrace to starboard and a large openable window to port. 

The upper deckhas been designed around spacious entertainment areas for guest’s relaxation, with a dining table and access to the comfortable sky lounge. The foredeck includes a solarium and open-air lounge, all designed to offer maximum privacy.

The fly deckprovides ample spaces and comfort with sofas, sun-beds, up & down tables, bar and a generous Jacuzzi.
