Tankoa Yachts have unveiled their T450 which they describe as a 45-metre yacht with the soul of a much larger vessel

Without sacrificing reputation for quality and comfort the Genoa based builders first yacht under 50 metres will extend its superyacht range into more compact vessels of just over 400gt. 

Building on the success of the 50-metre platform they created with Bintador and Vertige already delivered and two more in build, the T450 confirms Tankoa’s drive to build yachts below 500gt that are designed with a big boat mentality

Maximum flexibility

The 45 metre yacht has been designed to provide maximum flexibility, and in terms of interior and exterior space it feels like a much larger vessel.

Built in steel and aluminium, the exterior design of the T450 follows the same overall styling of earlier, larger yachts but adds vertical architecture to the superstructure and window shapes that is better balanced by cleaner horizontal lines.

Unusually for a 45 metre yacht of 405gt, the T450 can accommodate 12 guests in 6 cabins.

This accommodation comprises a full-beam owner’s stateroom and a VIP suite on the main deck forward as well as four en-suite cabins on the lower deck

Uninterrupted spaces

The interior design enjoys ample uninterrupted spaces, which coupled with Tankoa’s construction criteria and rich specification will make the T450 an interesting offer in this size range.

An open-plan dining room and main salon with full-height glazing overlooks the sweeping, open aft deck, which reminds one of the design seen aboard some super sailing yachts.  This huge terraced area is designed to function as an open-air beach club with a glass-fronted pool at its centre flanked by staircases down to the water-level swim platform.  This flexible design offering provides alternative layout solutions, such as aft-facing seating on the lower level and a large bar unit on the upper level.

The sun deck offers the option of another pool, sunbeds, shaded dining area, a forward bar with sofa seating and a day head.  The bridge deck offers more al fresco dining for a full complement of guests and a sky lounge that can function as a media room.

There is another lounging and social area on the open foredeck in front of the wheelhouse. where the guest tender and rescue render are stowed. In addition to the guest cabins on the lower deck, there is a large lazarette in the stern, the galley and crew dinette, extra cold storage, laundry and accommodation for 8 crew members plus the captain on the bridge deck with direct access to the wheelhouse.

The T450 45 metre yacht can be fitted with hybrid propulsion to reduce fuel consumption and emissions, as well as noise and vibration to a minimum.
