Tankoa Yachts in Italy has resumed work on the 164-foot S501, which is now beginning final construction with crews returning to work from the Covid-19 shutdown.
S501 was started on spec and purchased in March, just before the pandemic struck in Europe. The yacht is a sistership to Bintador and Vertige, with design by Francesco Paszkowski.
The layout on S501 is similar to that of her sisterships, however, the main deck aft is entirely a lounge (the dining room is on the upper deck) and the master stateroom forward has a lounge that converts to an en suite stateroom.
“Although we were effectively obliged to stop work for two months, production is now back on track,” Giuseppe Mazza, Tankoa’s sales manager, stated in a press release. “With construction at more than 75 percent complete, we’re making up for lost time and looking at delivery by the end of the year to allow the owner to use it in the Caribbean”
The yacht’s paint scheme is expected to include a black hull with a metallic gray superstructure. Interior design is by Casadio Miami in the United States.
What is S501’s projected speed? 14 knots at cruise with a 17.5-knot top end, according to Tankoa.
