With bold and captivating lines characterised by a vertical bow stem, the exterior design of the NEXT 70 is defined by the arcs that connect and unite all the deck left in the stern to provide a sense of balance and continuity.
Three different superstructure profiles can be integrated into the exterior styling to offer owners a wide choice of design.
“Building on the success of Suerte and Solo, this new 70 metre design incorporates the distinctive brand features of Tankoa and combines them with new solutions,” said Francesco Paszkowski.
“The aim has been to develop a yacht with innovative stylistic and technical features that will confirm Tankoa’s status at the forefront of the superyacht sector.”
A series of design details from the stern fairleads and half-moon shapes to the black chine in the bow and the black V-pattern on the hard top, reflect Tankoa’s design philosophy.
The vertical bow also recalls the 50-metre projects launched by the yard and will be carried forward into future designs. The vertical forward glazing contrasts powerfully with the gentle S-shaped bend of the arcs in the stern.
One of the salient features of this project is the interior layout, especially the forward area that is arranged on two connected levels between the main and upper decks.
The master suite is spread over the main deck and upper deck for a total area of about 150-square-metres with side terraces and a private gym. It is directly connected to the foredeck and helipad via the upper deck and an internal private staircase.
A skylight brings light into this passage that opens up into a large space comprising a panoramic lounge and dining area/meeting room.
Like residential seaside homes, the side bulwarks on the upper deck are glazed to provide transparency and uninterrupted sea views.
In fact, all the external areas are designed as terraces overlooking the sea with plentiful use of frameless glass to increase visual contact with the marine environment.
On the foredeck of the upper deck in front of the owner’s area is large alfresco zone with a pool. The stern a dining and relaxation area with softly rounded sofas and seating.
There is another larger swimming pool on the main aft deck, above the transom beach club on the lower deck with spa area that includes a sauna and hammam.
In line with the unconventional layout configuration, there is no classic sky lounge on the upper deck. In its place are two VIP suites aft of the central lobby.
Other guest accommodation includes two additional VIP suites on the main deck aft and two ensuite cabins on the lower deck, where there is also a gym for guest use. This arrangement provides maximum flexibility, especially for charter use.
The second lounge area on board, instead of being on the upper deck, has been transposed to the bridge deck that opens onto a convivial area on the aft deck with circular sofas.
The sun deck hosts a large area with sun beds and a shower integrated into the mast structure that can be reached by the main staircase that connects all the decks.
A 9-metre limousine tender and a 5.5-metre guest tender are stored in the stern garage. A crew tender, rescue tender and Jet Skis are housed under the helipad in the bow
Last but not least, the lighting system has been carefully integrated into the overall design concept, a solution evident in the play of overhead LED lights in the outdoor conversation and dining area on the main and upper decks.
