S701 might look reminiscent to 69m Suerte (Tankoa S693) at first sight but she is a different animal. She is another Paszkowski design that will set the bar high for any modern-classic and timeless design.
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 fore part of this deck, like on Suerte, is devoted to the 4 guest cabins and the VIP suite. 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. This deck’s main volume is devoted to the enormous observation lounge with its floor to ceiling side windows, 90” 4K flat LED TV screen, baby grand piano, bar and fireplace. 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.
Inside, he will enjoy his independent TV room also convertible in an additional room thanks to an additional bathroom. Passed the lobby, right out of the elevator, the bedroom is equipped with a central bed surrounded by floor to ceiling windows allowing for stunning views. Two side doors are opening the way to side sun pads shaded by the superstructure and to the Jacuzzi with its sky shower and surrounded by additional cushions. Form inside, the view out will be made even more spectacular that one of the window is a structural glass part of the Jacuzzi.
The gigantic master bath is reached passed the walk in wardrobe and see its tub installed flush to the oversized windows. And if this was not enough outdoor space, there is also a sundeck equipped with shower, sun pad and lounge sofas. According to Michel Karsenti, Sales Director, this construction is a three-way deal for this client as S701 is programmed to be an interim yacht for this knowledgeable owner.
Since the contract has been signed, the client informed Tankoa that, his intent is to start building Tankoa’s project S801, as soon as all the technical studies are completed and the shipyard is ready to initiate construction. And Karsenti to add “This is truly a one-of-a-kind deal. The client is familiar with Paszkowsky, knows us and knows Albert McIlroy, the build engineer/owner’s rep who was in charge of following the build of S693 Suerte as well as S501 Vertige. Albert having been involved in lots of North European new builds his views on Tankoa’s capacities and commitment to build the best the Italian yachting industry can offer was a true endorsement for the buyer. The Suerte “case study” that was not only an extremely successful charter yachts having achieved a 16-weeks charter during the 2016 summer and sold right after, surely helped closing this deal.”
