Genoa-based shipyard Tankoa has announced a 164-foot (50-meter) model in its 499GT series with two aluminum hull designs.
The full-displacement version, S501, will be capable of 16 to 18 knots top speed depending on the power package, while the semi-displacement model will be capable of 27 knots. Designer Francesco Paszkowski has a longstanding relationship with Tankoa, having worked with the yard on a 69.4-meter (227-foot) yacht scheduled for delivery in July 2015. The S501 is designed with a modified plumb bow, a wide hard chine and high freeboard to minimize spray at fast speeds. The interior will have floor-to-ceiling windows in the main salon and dining areas, foldout balconies in the master and hydraulic lateral foldout terraces on the aft deck.
