Project S701 by Tankoa Yachts has been launched and christened M/Y SOLO.

The 70m concept S701 is designed for open-plan living spaces to bring the outdoor to indoor. The “Sea Lounge” features an oversized beach club with an integrated bar. Also, a sauna, hammam and private balconies with sea view are disposed of here. The panorama dining area makes it feel outside but protects from the outside elements.

The touch and go helicopter landing area of M/Y SOLO can be transformed into a dance floor. The Sky Lounge has a big sized gym and massage area. Thanks to her big windows with a free sea view. A state of the art pool and with the sunbathing area can be found on the Sky Lounge too. The Sun Terrace invites with sun beds, sofas, and a 360° view.

The almost 100 m² master stateroom is located on the foredeck area under the bridge and allows a 180° view over the sea. Here is also a private studio, private jacuzzi and private sunbathing area.

Michel Karsenti, the sales and marketing director of Tankoa commented:

“Our aim is not to compete with our Italian colleagues, it is to compete with Northern European shipyards. There is a highly tangible reason why our price is higher. But our Italian business model and regulations mean that we will be more competitive than Northern Europe.”

SOLO has six cabins for twelve guests. The owner has a private deck with master suite above the main deck. It features a private pool and sunbathing forward. The private deck has also an office and an extra relax area. Furthermore, an aft area with bar, seatings and the helipad.

SOLO Motor Yacht Tankoa S701

Sales and Marketing Director Michel Karsenti comments:

“The owner is a truly experienced boat lover. This is his second build with Tankoa and his wish is now to put Solo on the market for sale and build a new Tankoa, probably larger. It is surely rewarding for all of us at Tankoa to see a client who basically has very little time to enjoy his boat considering his hectic business life but enjoys the construction and creation process so much. 
As much as we would like to see the client enjoy his boat, we are truly happy to have developed such trustful relationship with such knowledgeable client. Solo will be exhibited in Monaco and will surely sale quickly as she is an exceptional yacht that will demonstrate that Tankoa is the alternative to Northern European shipyard to build a high-quality yacht at reasonable cost and extreme flexibility. 
But overall, the most amazing factor between his previous yacht, Suerte and the new one, Solo, is the countless number of technical details that have been improved. The interior is also very different with all seats and tables by Fendi Casa. I am pretty sure Solo, like Vertige, will have a big impact on the market at the upcoming Monaco Yacht Show.”
