The S801 is based on a new platform model which can be extended to 88m. The 80m version will have a beam of 13.50m and a gross tonnage of 2,500 GT.
The main deck will take advantage of the yacht’s full beam, providing maximum volume in this size segment.
Tankoa S801 will feature four decks plus a sun deck. An enormous main deck lounge will welcome guests aboard, while the five VIP cabins with in-suite baths will be located in the fore part of the main deck to maximize silence and comfort (in line with the 70-meter design philosophy).
The owner’s gigantic suite will be located on the upper deck aft section. His apartment will consist of a grand “bedroom” with two walk-in closets, a massage zone, private SPA/Sauna, personal office and a spacious bathroom.
These amenities are just part of the initial proposal for S801 as the shipyard will consider fully custom designed layout.
Just like sails in the wind, the decks float as if suspended between sea and sky
S801 has the code name “Golden Wings”, the S801 is Francesco Paszkowski’s vision of Italy’s most famous and beautiful ship of all time, the Amerigo Vespucci. Her superstructure seems to be literally suspended in mid-air, an interpretation of how the sailing ship would appear if her rig was shifted aft.
The reference to Amerigo Vespucci is an excellent way to pay tribute to one of the greatest Italian maritime explorers of the world.
“From the early stages of the project, the plan was to introduce a different approach to the market,” says Michel Karsenti, Tankoa Sales Director. “In recent times we’ve seen a number of yacht designs that followed popular trends, only to look obsolete after just a couple of years. This project is very different. Our aim is to create something radically new based on the elegant design language of a classic sailing ship. The result will certainly be exciting but also timeless – an important consideration for any discerning owner looking to maximise the resale value of a valuable investment.”
Innovative structures: steel, aluminum, and titanium
With advanced structures and applied technologies, Tankoa Yachts intends to build one of the world’s most innovative yachts. The hull will be made of high tensile steel, with a light aluminum alloy superstructure. Other state-of-the-art technologies, such as titanium reinforcements, presently under study, should be part of the package.
The S801 concept project will be completed in the next few months with further development of technical specifications, principal system layouts, and engineering
