Italian shipyard Tankoa Yachts has announced the sale of its second 70m superyacht hull, S701, in an in-house deal.
Due to be launched in 2018, S701 is a four-deck displacement superyacht, and will be the sister vessel to Tankoa’s Suerte. Construction of the yacht originally began before the financial crisis but was halted until earlier this year, when Tankoa Yachts decided to proceed after a hiatus.
S701 features exterior design by Francesco Paszkowski, with naval architecture by Studio Ruggiero. In a statement, Tankoa Yachts comments “A true evolution of our successful first launch from last year, S701 will be a step up in terms of layout, luxury and finish.”
With the hull and superstructure completed, the team has now begun running pipes and wiring S701 at its facility in Genoa. While S701 will be the sister vessel to Tankoa’s Suerte, she features a number of notable differences including an underwater exhaust, a more open main deck and sundeck, and a side staircase rather than a central staircase. S701 is also reported to have a higher top speed, due to her hull being fitted with longer skegs.
S701 will be powered by a pair of 2,480hp Caterpillar 3516B diesel engines, with a 160,000 litre fuel capacity. Her estimated cruising range is 6,000nm at 12.5 knots.
