Tankoa Yachts officially presented its superyacht Suerte at the Monaco Yacht Show in 2015. She was built in 2015 by Tankoa Yachts of Genoa, Italy and is the very first delivery made by Tankoa as a company, though the principal designers have more than 40 years of collective experience with shipbuilding. She achieved perfect balance at her first launch, and this is said to happened only once in every forty new launches. Tankoa engineers achieved an impressive technical achievement.
Her interior features the design talents of Margherita Casprini and Francesco Paszkowski. Paszkowski created her exterior styling as well. Renowned Professor Vincenzo Ruggiero designed her naval architecture. She was commissioned by a Russian client who requested that there be separate passageways for the guests and the crew throughout the yacht. The social spaces are generous, and the private areas are very much so.
Designed for Luxury and Enjoyment
What makes Suerte different from other mega yachts designed for charter, is that she is more than equivalent to first class hotels, and it is her interior styling and architecture which set her apart from the rest. Suerte has two entries that welcome guests directly into a lounge which receives them with a complete bar, and direct access to the beach club via a central staircase. From the moment guests arrive, they are offered refreshment and relaxation.
Located forward, is the saloon, which is as comfortable as any family room. There is a centrally located 4K TV situated directly across from a wide and cozy arrangement of sofa and lounge chairs. The custom mounted fish tank in the forward bulkhead is something to see.
Suerte, means “luck” in the Spanish language. She is a beautiful motor yacht designed for beauty and pleasure. Her interior is modern, minimalistic and sleek. Featuring a color palette of gold, bronze, whites and natural teak wall paneling, oak, black slate, leather, lacquered surfaces and textural variety, she provides plenty of comfortable spaces designed for socializing and relaxation. The main salon includes a library and a cozy sofa.
The dining room features a 900-liter aquarium, floor to ceiling windows and a wine collection which exceeds expectations by showcasing the owner’s favorite bottles. A stunning, contemporary metallic lighting fixture brings generous light over the shimmering metallic oval dining table.
The upper deck includes a sushi bar, which allows Suerte’s chef free culinary range. This area opens to the aft lounge area, which is also convertible to a stateroom by simply sliding a few walls.
The vessel is built over three decks which are spacious. A spa situated at sea level, the beach club, and swimming pool and sundeck terrace are all areas where guests can spend time and enjoy company.
A Modern Interpretation of Italian Shipbuilding Tradition
Tankoa Yachts shipyard is situated in Genoa Sestri Ponente, which is the heart of Italian navigation tradition. Positioned in this strategic location in the Mediterranean Sea provides the company with perfect access to prime global waterways. The shipyard has a large quay for mooring bigger vessels. The quay is 20 meters wide and more than 250 meters long, with 11,000 meters of maneuvering area and an additional 15,000 meters for berth. Extra mooring at the quay’s end is provided for 8 to 10 smaller boats of medium size. Ship building sheds include two production areas enhanced by climate control, each of which are 18 meters high, 90 meters long, and 20 meters wide. The cement structure contains a total square meters of 3,600, facilitated by an operational area. The modern head office is a five story building which houses the administration, commercial, technical and executive management offices.
Tankoa sees its projects as the opportunity to work closely with their clients’ hopes and dreams, providing a high level of customization by including the elements the yacht Owner finds perfect. It is a dream-seeking and idea sharing process which has involved the collaborative skills of Francesco Paszkowski’s Design Studio for twenty years. The two entities merge talents to provide a homogeneous and cohesive architecture throughout the exterior and interior yacht areas.
Tankoa believes that what distinguishes their realization of client’s dreams for the perfect yacht is based on their expertise developed through many years working within the fine traditional craftsmanship of Italian shipbuilders. Answering every wish question with excellence is their goal. They view interpreting dreams as fine art.
Tankoa views its ability to provide a high quality of sailing life is directly linked to their use of technological advances which sensibly use innovative, and hidden, solutions for keeping the working components of their mega yachts out of sight and quiet. Keeping these elements in control allows for elegant sailing with clear air flowing. Electromagnetic pollution protection is provided by the perfectly automated systems employed in their vanguard designs.
All Tankoa yachts use the latest technologies for insulation, making for a quiet sail, with noise and vibration reduced to their minimums. All of their vessels are tested at the Schiffbautechnische Versuchsanstalt LTD wind tunnel located in Vienna, which ensures proper engine exhaust flow. Tankoa yachts are also have Lloyd’s, RINA and M.C.A. surveys and certifications. They are Green Plus, following the most recent regulations for Maritime Pollution Prevention. The company’s development and research teams invest in safety, well-being and power quality on board their vessels.
