Tankoa is boutique shipyard based in Genoa. Its multi-cultural approach towards yacht construction has paid off with the announcement of the sale of its first Tankoa S501 to an experienced French client.

Construction of this first 50 metre superyacht will start early April 2015 for a delivery first days of April 2017.

S501 will be entirely built in aluminium light alloy 5083.

According to Michel Karsenti whose company Yacht-Ology handlings the marketing of the shipyard this is a true recognition of the “boutique shipyard” values and power that irrevocably consists in building yachts with clients, not for clients

Karsenti declared “despite the impressive background and success track records of the entire Tankoa management, we are extremely proud that the client, his surveyor and broker, Daniel Bussani from Aquila Yachting, decided Tankoa was the most suitable shipyard to built his new yacht after investigating a number of European builders

Project S501 was one of the first initiative resulting of the partnership between Tankoa and Yacht-Ology right after Karsenti contracted S693 that will be delivered this summer

She represents the quintessence of the result between a high quality builder and a marketing and sales organisation that is in daily contact with yacht owners, captains and surveyors.

Tankoa’s management team and Karsenti worked in close collaboration with Francesco Paszkowski to design the project which is a full displacement version offering a range of 5,000 Nautical Miles at 12 knots and 16 knots top speed.

The other available to the market version of S501 is a semi-displacement capable of a 27 knots top speed.
