The highly anticipated 69.3m superyacht Suerte is fast approaching her delivery date. Built by Italian shipyard Tankoa, Suerte has been undergoing extensive sea trials in the bay of Portofino for the past month, as well as her final outfitting. She will then debut at the Monaco Yacht Show this month, moored at T central.

Built for a repeat superyacht owner, Suerte has been designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design, who has also drawn the other three models in the range. Francesco Paszkowski has also designed the interior, in collaboration with Margherita Casprini who, has produced a series of warm minimalist interiors.

Launched in July this year, Suerte is the first yacht Tankoa has built. However, the Italian facility is also continuing the construction of the S501 this month and the S701, a close sistership to Suerte.

Following the sea trials of Suerte, Michel Karsent, whose company Yacht-Ology marketed the vessel to prospective clients, commented: “We are really thrilled with the results right off the first sea trials. According to the contractual specification, the top speed was to be 16.5 knots, at half load. Like any other builder, our performances are to be obtained by calm sea with 5 knots' wind”. He continued, “the project simply exceeded all our wildest expectations! A happy owner will be our best reward!”

Suerte will make her way to the Cote d’Azur after all the owner’s supplies and toys have been installed on board.
