After several recent visits at the yard i notice. The new Tankoa’s debut 45-metre vessel presents a perfect balance of interior and exterior. Known simply as T450, Tankoa communicates a strong spirit of elegance and quiet luxury, with clean lines and spacious exterior areas.

Last new delivery at Tankoa.

The upper deck streamlines the sleek shape of her body while the sun deck unifies the sense of symmetry. The smallest detail serves form via function. The optimal arrangement of the interior means no sacrifices in the living spaces and in her six full-size cabins. 

Designed by the famous Italian designer Giorgio M. Cassetta, T450 features a steel hull with an aluminum superstructure. Despite her gross tonnage under 500GT, the new Tankoa model is considered to offer a five-star comfort to her guests, with spacious interior areas and deck space. To achieve wide spaces, Cassetta focused on creating an uninterrupted, open-plan interior in a decidedly minimalist style.

The yacht packs some amazing real estate and amenities while presenting an elegant styling that is intentionally free of any useless decoration,” Cassetta explained. “The construction criteria and rich specification will make the T450 a truly unique offer in this size range.”

This amazing 45-meter Tankoa yacht offers a generous layout, which includes a comfortable dining room and a stunning salon with full-height windows. The full-beam owner cabin and a VIP suite are situated forward on the main deck while the other four guest cabins are placed on the lower deck. 

The outdoor decks are impressively spacious as well, offering different areas of pure relaxation and total comfort on board. The beautiful sundeck hosts a magnificent pool and sunbeds, an alfresco dining area is placed on the bridge deck, and a sky lounge that doubles as a media room is located on the open foredeck.

The master piece of this vessel is the open air beach club, featured by a glass-fronted pool at its center and flanked by staircases that flow down to the water-level swim platform.

The T450 features twin MAN D2862L engines that will give her a max speed of 15 knots, a cruise speed of 14 knots, and a range of 4,000 nautical miles. However, she can be fitted with hybrid propulsion to reduce fuel consumption and emissions. 

Her layout can also be customized to suit each seafarer’s needs. “Building on the extraordinary success of our 50-meter platform with Bintador and Vertige already delivered and two more in build, the T450 confirms Tankoa’s drive to build yachts below 500GT that are designed with a big boat mentality and quality,” said Tankoa’s sales manager Giuseppe Mazza.
