Tankoa Yachts and Yacht-Ology are happy release new details about the works in progress of S501. The first Tankoa S501 was sold last February 2015 to an experienced French client.

Construction of this first 50 meter started early May 2015. Delivery is scheduled on time in April 2017. S501 which has been sold by Yacht-Ology in collaboration with Aquila Yachting to a French client recently reached a significant milestone with the hull, deck and superstructure, all in aluminium, completed and moved from Marina di Carrara to enter in the completion shed in Genova on November 20th. Engines and generators are already in and fairing will be started in December. The interior moke-up has been approved by the owner and production of all the cabins has begun before the end of the year.

Project S501 was one of the first initiative resulting of the partnership between Tankoa and Yacht-Ology right after Karsenti contracted S693 that have been delivered last summer. She represents the quintessence of the result between a high quality builder and a marketing and sales organization that is in daily contact with yacht owners, captains and surveyors. Tankoa’s management team and Karsenti worked in close collaboration with Francesco Paszkowski to design the project in order to reach the following goals:

- Achieve a perfectly balanced and fluid timeless design that will not look like what is currently offered on the market.
- Offer perfect circulation flows for owners and guest to move from deck to deck and from inside to outside without interfering with the working crew while giving them a total freedom of movement to carry on their tasks.
- Give the owner in a 499 Gross Tons package the type of amenities and equipments commonly found on much larger yachts. S501 hull number one will be a six cabin yacht including main deck full beam master and VIP suite, four lower deck guest cabins, gym, home cinema, a 7 meter tender garage among other amenities as well as floor to ceiling windows and hydraulic balconies in the master cabin and on the aft deck.

Keeping permanent visual contact with the sea was one of the other tasks assigned to Francesco Paszkowski’s design team.

Interiors, as per client's request, will be the work of Francesco Paszkowski Design Studio in cooperation with Margherita Casprini and should reflect a "modern but warm" atmosphere.

This first model of project S501 will be in its full displacement version offering a range of 5,000 Nautical Miles at 12 knots and 16 knots top speed.

S501 will be entirely built in aluminium light alloy 5083.
