Tankoa unveils new 50m explorer superyacht
Genoa-based shipyard Tankoa Yachts has unveiled its T500 Tethys explorer superyacht, which offers hybrid propulsion options.
The T500 Tethys features exteriors and flexible interiors developed with the Milan-based studio Hot Lab, with a gross tonnage of just under 500 GT.
Dubbed the ‘SUV of the seven seas’, Tankoa says the T500 Tethys has been conceived for go-anywhere cruising and is offered with traditional, hybrid or diesel electric propulsion.
Vincenzo Poerio, CEO at Tankoa Yachts says: “We are delighted to reveal our 50-metre T500 Tethys to the market. This model was missing from our range and we wanted to fill this gap. We know that both today’s and tomorrow’s owners are looking for flexibility above all, and that is the language which is spoken by our newest model. The only limit is the owner’s imagination.”
Thanks to the yacht’s flexible layout, two convertible spaces on the lower deck can be utilised for numerous different purposes, including as additional cabins, a gym, a cinema area, an owner’s office, or as recreation spaces. Other areas include the sundeck, which is home to a Jacuzzi, a sun pad, a bar with a barbecue, a relaxation area and a bathroom.
Guests can retire to the upper deck aft for lunches in the fresh air, with its comfortable bar, lounge area and panoramic ocean views. The aft platform is the heart of the yacht – close to the water and complete with its own infinity pool.
Alternatively, if a different configuration is desired, this could also be the perfect area to store the owner’s favourite toys, as well as any land, water or aircraft.
Enrico Lumini, partner and head of design at Hot Lab comments on the new T500 Tethys: “It is fluid and dynamic in its shapes, but still geometrically pure and free of any useless constructive complications.”
