Rapidly proceeding at the Tankoa yard
Work in progress on Tankoa S701
Construction work on the new 72 meter S701 is proceeding rapidly at the Tankoa yard in Genoa and it is foreseen for summer 2018. Her Gross Tonnage is at 1,600+ GRT due to her full beam top deck and her 1,70 meter longer hull in respect to M/Y Suerte. The main deck, while similar to Suerte in volume, has been designed differently allowing for a much larger winter garden, thanks to the beach club access stairwell deported to the side. The dining room will allow to enjoy full sea view as a result of the cut down bulwark now realized with glass panels.
The most noticeable change comes from the larger aft deck with its six-meter transversal pool, two sun pads and twin L shaped sofas. At night, this entire space will be turned into an outdoor cinema with giant screen which the guests will be able to watch from the sofas or from inside the pool. The foredeck will be equipped with a garage for the quick release of the rescue tender and a garage for the PWC. The under lower deck, room is devoted to laundry, pump room storages and technical space. The central tender bay will house two 7,50-meter luxury tenders.
The beach club, thanks to its 72-meter hull, offers a truly comfortable layout with sofa, bar, TV, oversized gym with a foldout terrace opening to the water, bathroom, a sauna, also equipped with its own foldout terrace and a hammam. The 3rd deck, houses from fore to aft the wheelhouse with an independent radio room, comfortable captain’s cabin, hair dressing/massage room that can be converted in an additional cabin for a bodyguard or an officer. Outside are two lounge sofas, sun pads and outdoor dining table for 14 guests.
The sky lounge deck onboard Tankoa S701 is a fully private owner’s deck. From the touch and go helideck aft where he’ll be able to arrive in style (with a 4.5-tons certification enough for an Augusta 109 for instance or most twin turbine helicopter), the owner will benefit from his own Jacuzzi, bar, saloon, outdoor breakfast corner and day head with shower.
