Tankoa Yachts in Italy has completed the technical launch of Olokun, a 164-foot Francesco Paszkowski design that is Hull No. 3 in the shipyard’s 50-meter series of all-aluminum yachts.

Interior décor is by Casadio Miami/London.

Olokun has a semi-displacement hull and conventional diesel propulsion. Tankoa says the yacht’s top speed is 17.5 knots, with a cruising speed of 14 knots.

Features include foldout terraces in the owner’s stateroom forward on the main deck; a side-loading tender garage in the stern; and a beach club at the transom.

What sets Olokun apart from her predecessors are a main deck aft that’s dedicated to what the yard calls “an enormous lounge,” an upper-deck dining room, and a private study in the master stateroom that converts to an ensuite stateroom.

“S501 Hull No. 3 was started on spec, and the owner came into the project quite late during construction, but as a boutique shipyard we wanted to offer him maximum flexibility to tailor the yacht to his personal needs,” Vincenzo Poerio, CEO of Tankoa, stated in a press release. “The second cabin connected to his own suite on the main deck is a good example. It meant cutting a hole in the bulkhead and rerouting all the wiring so his private office could be converted into a cabin.

“Another example is the distinctive black hull and metallic gray superstructure,” he added. “Dark hulls can absorb the sun’s rays and overheat, but in order to satisfy the owner’s request and achieve optimal results, Tankoa specified the most high-performance coatings available that reduce the temperature of the metal hull.”

When is Olokum scheduled for delivery? At the end of November.
