  1. Fourth S501 In Process At Tankoa Yachts
    Here is a look at the fourth S501 by Tankoa Yachts that is presently under construction. The yacht known as Project 'Elettra' takes its design from the drawing boards of Francesco Paszkowski. She is a sister to previous members of the S501 family being the latest of that class. The last yacht of this class was the very distinctive black S501 -hull three- called "Olokun" which launched in September with anticipated delivery in November. Below is the first hull, "Vertige".
  2. The hull and superstructure of the S501 model is made from aluminium - alloy 5083- built to Lloyds + MCA. The fourth hull has been mated with its superstructure as the photos suggest and is being prepped for the fit-out stages of build. Remember the S501 line features hybrid propulsion and therefore you will find hybrid equipment from MAN and Siemens onboard. This setup will allow the fourth hull to be able to operate in three modes depending on what is necessary at the time. Fully electric mode, semi electric or diesel-electric, as well as the normal diesel operation. The yard states that this class can run up to 18-knots and at 12-knots endure for 4,000 nautical miles. Usually this model from Tankoa Yachts sleep between 11 and 12 guests. As a reminder, the yachts in the S501 model are "Vertige", "Bintador", "Olokun" and the current 4th hull - seen below in its raw exposed aluminum state- .
