Tankoa Yachts in Italy has unveiled a new design: the 173-foot Saetta.

The Saetta is a planing-hull design with glass rising from just above her waterline, in an effort to surround guests with uninterrupted views of the sea. Designer Francesco Paszkowski calls the yacht, also known as Tankoa S533, “a glimpse of the future.”

“The extensive use of glass was adopted to bring in the sea, and the essentiality characterizing the exterior styling amplifies this sensation of an endless horizon,” Paszkowski says.
