The Tankoa S501, designed by Francesco Paszkowski is the fourth in the 50-metre, alumimium series and the first in the series to feature a swimming pool on the main deck forward, proving the company is pushing the boundaries from traditional design.

As with the brand’s previous vessel, Bintador, the new yacht features hybrid propulsion. This provides three cruising modes: diesel-mechanical, diesel-electric and full-electric.

“As our second yacht with hybrid propulsion, this launch confirms we are at the forefront of technological research in order to meet the needs of even the most sophisticated owners,” says Vincenzo Poerio, Tankoa CEO.

“This time we used the MAN / Siemens system and we are very satisfied with the performance in the various configurations.”

By selecting the most appropriate mode of sailing, it is possible to reduce fuel consumption, increase comfort while cruising and extend the servicing time of machinery, especially the generators.

The eco-friendly nature of hybrid propulsion means the owner can also access protected areas that other yachts cannot.

Outfitting of the yacht will continue at the shipyard prior to her scheduled delivery in late April.

Meanwhile, work is continuing the fifth hull in the 50-metre series, which has conventional propulsion and is scheduled for delivery later this year. Work has begun on a 6th hull.

Other projects under construction include the T580 designed by Paszkowski, the first T55 Sportiva by Luca Dini and the T450 by Giorgio M. Cassetta.
