Tankoa Yachts has announced the sale of the 50m model S502 Elettra to a European owner. The sales process was steered by Giancarlo Mussino of SINOS S.A. The launch is scheduled in February 2019. with delivery in May.
Designed by Florence based Francesco Paszkowski, the second fifty meter Tankoa under construction model S502 Elettra is in terms of style a sister-ship to the first 50 meter “Vertige” delivered last summer. As onboard “Vertige”, she reveals a balanced and timeless style with a layout specifically designed for optimal circulation. Owners and guests can move from deck to deck without interference with crewmembers who have their own dedicated pathways for servicing the yacht, providing complete privacy for owners and guests.
The main innovation onboard is however her hybrid propulsion system with four different operation modes:
– DIESEL ELECTRIC MODE: in this operation mode, the electric motors are powered by the two variable speed generators, allowing for a 10.5 knots speed and a range of 4,900 nm.
– HYBRID MODE: one of the two main engines drives feeds the same shaft electric motor to generate electrical power to run the second electric motor for propulsion and hotel load. At 12 knots, the yacht will have a cruising range of approx. 4,000 nm. The two diesel generators are inactive in this mode.
– TRADITIONAL MODE: the yacht can sail at 17 knots using both main diesel engines for propulsion and a diesel generator for onboard services.
– FULL-SPEED MODE: with both main engines and generators supplying power to the two electric motors and for hotel loads, the yacht will reach a top speed of 18 knots.
