Tankoa Yachts presents the 56m full-custom motor yacht T560 APACHE.

Crafted under the visionary guidance of esteemed designer Alberto Mancini, the exquisite Tankoa T560 Apache draws its inspiration from the illustrious T760 Apache design, which made its grand debut at the venerable Monaco Yacht Show in 2021. Encapsulating a grandiose vessel’s essence within a more compact framework is no small feat. However, the exceptional team at Tankoa, in collaboration with the esteemed Mancini studio, embraced this challenge with unparalleled enthusiasm.

“The task was to replicate a similar design with similar proportions to the 76-metre version, keeping the yacht sleek and elegant but still offering huge volumes inside with features that are more typically found on yachts larger than 1,000 gross tons,” says Claudio Corvino, Sales and Business Development Manager at Tankoa.

“The tricky part was to maximize internal space with minimal compromises, to create a beach-style home-away-from-home retreat with expansive external spaces and without the formality that is sometimes found on yachts of this size,” Corvino continues. “The result is an incredible yacht with incredible spaces – and with a design that not only meets all the requests of our American clients but which also demonstrates the capability, flexibility, and ingenuity of the Tankoa team.”

At the pinnacle of this magnificent vessel, the bridge deck presents an unparalleled vantage point for the captain, crew, and esteemed guests to indulge in the art of navigation. The helm’s nautical placement liberates the upper deck for an extraordinary feature inspired by the illustrious T760 Apache concept yet executed with such finesse that it appears tailor-made for the T560 model. Behold the owner’s suite, a marvelous spectacle that commands the forefront of the vessel. Its forward position affords a breathtaking 50-square-meter interior studio apartment with panoramic views and a colossal private terrace, complete with a 5.5-meter flying pool and an alfresco lounge area centered around a blazing firepit.

Further aft, a welcoming upper saloon leads to a spacious upper aft terrace boasting alfresco dining for twelve. One deck below, the communal guest areas exude a beach-chic ambiance, with a cozy aft saloon and a convertible forward dining area. The layout accommodates five guest suites, a rarity for a yacht of this magnitude, all located forward at the main deck level. Among them a full-beam VIP suite and four lavish twin/double cabins, each offering unparalleled sea views.

Practicality meets enchantment as the guest cabins occupy the main deck level, granting the crew a generous space for their quarters on the lower deck. Amidships, the owner and guests are treated to a wellness center to port and a gym to starboard, complete with a drop-down waterside terrace. The tender garage, located forward at the main deck level, behind the mooring deck, and under the owner’s terrace, provides ample space for a 7-meter tender, rescue boat, and an array of water toys.

Suppose the American owners yearned for a beach-chic ambiance. In that case, their desires have been exquisitely fulfilled with yet another extraordinary feature inherited from the grander concept – a beach club and waterside aft deck adorned with a magnificent 4-meter glass pool and drop-down side balconies, which together create an expansive 90-square-meter playground. The elegant smoked glass transom seamlessly connects the beach club’s inner sanctum to the outside world. At the same time, the main aft deck, accessed by two aft stairs, serves not only as a separate guest area but also as an elevated terrace.

However, the flawless integration of the interior and exterior spaces truly distinguishes the T560 Apache. This practical and invitingly informal layout seamlessly merges, concealing the yacht’s impressive 840GT volume with flowing lines that testify to Mancini’s design expertise. It is a testament to the original concept’s strength that so many key features have been seamlessly transferred to this new vessel.
