Tankoa Yachts has unveiled its first yacht under 50m. This, the company says, extends its superyacht range into more compact vessels of just over 400GT, ‘without sacrificing the brand’s hard-earned reputation for quality and comfort combined with innovation and elegance’.
“Building on the extraordinary success of our 50m platform with Bintador and Vertige already delivered and two more in build, the T450 confirms Tankoa’s drive to build yachts below 500GT that are designed with a big boat mentality and quality,” says Giuseppe Mazza, Tankoa Sales Manager. “This new 45-metre model has been designed to provide maximum flexibility, and in terms of interior and exterior space it feels like a much larger vessel.”
Unusually for a 45m yacht of 405GT, the T450 can accommodate 12 guests in six cabins. This accommodation comprises a full-beam owner’s stateroom and a VIP suite on the main deck forward as well as four en suite cabins on the lower deck.
“When Tankoa asked us to prepare a proposal for the new T450, our instinct was to go through our past experience with yachts of similar and larger volume to come up with a precise vision of what had to be in the design,” says Giorgio Cassetta, designer. “The yacht packs some amazing real estate and amenities, while presenting an elegant styling that is intentionally free of any useless decoration. The interior design enjoys ample uninterrupted spaces, warmed by the usage of marine materials and earthy hues. The construction criteria and rich specification will make the T450 a truly unique offer in this size range.”
The T450 can be fitted with hybrid propulsion to reduce fuel consumption and emissions, as well as noise and vibration to a minimum.
