Tankoa Yachts and its global sales and marketing agent, Yacht-Ology are particularly pleased with this first-time launch claiming that, as soon as Suerte hit the water, she showed perfect balance 'with zero degree lateral inclination and a draft only one centimeter off our calculation.'
Edoardo Ratto, Tankoa GM, declared right after Suerte left the dock: “Achieving such perfect balance at first launch happens once every 40 new launches. I am truly and sincerely emotional about it because this is our first yacht as Tankoa, and despite our impressive technical office, the highest level of professionalism of our engineers and our background in yacht building there are always some unforeseen factors that can affect balance at the time of first launching.”
For Michel Karsenti and Yacht-Ology this was not just one more launch: “This launch was very emotional for all of us. The entire design phase conducted with Francesco Paszkowski was heading towards creating a modern yacht that would still look very good ten years down the road. From colour renderings to the yacht being assembled in the shed, it is always difficult to get a true feel of what the effect will be once in the water.
"Lots of other builders asked me 'why?' when they heard about the Yacht-Ology-Tankoa agreement almost two years ago. I bet they will perfectly understand why after they see Suerte during the Monaco Yacht Show! Tankoa is a first class builder, and on our side, at Yacht-Ology, we pride ourselves to be marketers. I guess we will have to work even harder to keep up with the incoming demand we are facing for Tankoa Yachts.”
Tankoa and Yacht-Ology will introduce two new 53m concepts, codenamed S531 and S532. They have both been designed by Francesco Paszkowski with an asymmetrical main deck design for S531 and a full wide-body three suite main deck for S532. These two yachts will offer the amenities of much larger yacht in 740GT and 800GT packages respectively.
