Tankoa launches first unit in T450 series
Italian boatbuilder Tankoa has launched the first unit in the Tankoa T450 series at the Tankoa shipyard in Genoa, Italy.
This unit — named Go — was sold in late 2021, shortly after the new series was presented. It has been built for an American client.
As Tankoa‘s first model under 50 metres in length, the T450 expands the firm’s range of luxury yachts to include relatively more compact vessels.
Built entirely in steel and aluminium, the T450 is a project by yacht design and architecture firm Cassetta. The design introduces bold vertical elements to the superstructure, combined with sleek horizontal lines.
The client, who was introduced to the shipyard by the Italian Yacht Group of Fort Lauderdale, requested that the original gross tonnage of 430GT be increased to 450GT for this first unit to provide more interior volume.
“The all-new Tankoa T450 M/Y Go is a great addition to the Tankoa core fleet of superyachts, and it is an incredibly flexible platform on which we can create semi-custom yachts, offering big volumes without compromising on the sleek and elegant lines,” says Claudio Corvino, sales and business development manager for the Americas and Asia-Pacific at Tankoa.
“This first unit is a statement of what Tankoa can offer even at this size, and the final result was made possible by great teamwork between the shipyard, the young and enthusiastic client, and Giorgio M. Cassetta’s studio.”
M/Y Go has a master stateroom forward on the main deck and five guest suites on the lower deck.
Throughout the yacht, expansive windows emphasise the spaciousness of each area through natural light. The beach club features opening side platforms that wrap around the stern and a sliding sunpad that closes the pool during navigation.
The sundeck has a hydromassage tub and shaded dining area, while the upper deck is fitted out with a dedicated gym and a fire pit in the bow.
Go will be delivered in the spring and make her international debut at the autumn boat shows. A second unit in the T450 has been sold, and is currently under construction, as well as the TX450.
