Italian shipyard Tankoa Yachts has today announced that its second superyacht, the S501 Vertige, has successfully completed her first sea trials.
49.90m-long and 9.40m-wide, this motor yacht features sleek exterior lines designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design, which was also responsible, along with Margherita Casprini, for the interior styling. The naval architecture was developed by Vincenzo Ruggiero.
Thanks to an internal volume of 499GT, the vessel offers accommodation for up to 12 guests in 6 cabins, consisting of a VIP suite and a full-beam owner’s suite with fold-down balconies located on the main deck, as well as two VIP staterooms and two guest cabins on the lower deck.
Among the amenities of this superyacht are: a large sun lounging area, with two 3m-long fold-down terraces, located aft on the main deck; a spacious skylounge, sheltered al fresco dining area, and outdoor sitting area for 20 people on the upper deck; a large flybridge with bar, U-shaped sofa and comfortable sunpads; as well as a gym/beach club and garage for a 7m tender aft on the lower deck.
Entirely built in 5083 aluminium alloy and powered by two MTU 8V 4000 53R 746kW diesel engines, Vertige has surpassed even the yard’s most optimistic expectations during her sea trails.
Edoardo Ratto, General Manager of Tankoa Yachts, comments: “The first sea trails, which lasted about eight hours, were simply incredible. Vertige reached a top speed of 16.5 knots at 60% load (about 33,000 litres of fuel and more than 20,000 litres of water). S501 has a range of over 5,000nm at 12 knots, which really makes a difference when going for Atlantic crossings. There were no vibration at all and the decibel readings were inferior to contracted levels – in the owner’s suite and VIP stateroom, levels were below 50 decibels.”
The yacht is expected to be delivered to her owner this month.
