Tankoa Yachts launch 4th hull of its 50m hybrid series
The 4th hull of the hybrid aluminium series was launched in Genoa over the weekend…
Started on speculation, this unit is the first in the series to feature a swimming pool on the main deck forward. It also builds on the experience of Bintador’s hybrid propulsion to provide three cruising modes: diesel-mechanical, diesel-electric and full-electric.
“As our second yacht with hybrid propulsion, this launch confirms we are at the forefront of technological research in order to meet the needs of even the most sophisticated owners,” says Tankoa CEO, Vincenzo Poerio. “This time we used the MAN / Siemens system and we are very satisfied with the performance in the various configurations.”
By selecting the most appropriate mode of sailing, it is possible to reduce fuel consumption, increase the comfort while cruising at night and extend the servicing time of the main machinery, especially the generators. The eco-friendly nature of hybrid propulsion means the owner can also access protected areas that other yachts cannot.
Outfitting of the yacht will continue at the shipyard prior to her delivery in late April.
Work is continuing on the fifth hull in the 50-metre series, which has conventional propulsion and is scheduled for delivery later this year, and a 6th hull has been started on speculation.
The above graph highlights Tankoa Yacht's deliveries since 2015 and their average LOA(m). In the seven years between 2015-2021 Tankoa Yachts have on average made one delivery every year, with the projected order book for 2022 set to increase this output to two deliveries.
