Italian yard Tankoa Yachts has introduced a new 70m project with bold and captivating lines and a vertical bow stem, all developed together with Francesco Paszkowski. The model referred to as Next 70 has been born in the wake of the success of the 69.3-metre Suerte and the 72-metre Solo.
The model would opt for three different superstructure profiles that can be integrated into the exterior styling, offer the owners the freedom to choose. Meanwhile, the exterior design will be defined by the arcs that connect and unite all the deck left in the stern, providing a sense of balance and continuity.
Francesco Paszkowski expressed:
Building on the success of Suerte and Solo, this new 70 metre design incorporates the distinctive brand features of Tankoa and combines them with new solutions. The aim has been to develop a yacht with innovative stylistic and technical features that will confirm Tankoa’s status at the forefront of the superyacht sector.
Numerous design details such as the stern fairleads and half-moon shapes, as well as the black chine in the bow and the black V-pattern on the hard top, reflect general Tankoa’s design philosophy.
The vertical bow also recalls the 50-metre projects previously launched by the yard. Furthermore, the model features the vertical forward glazing contrasts with the gentle S-shaped bend of the arcs in the stern.
As to the interior layout, it features a 150-square-metre master suite with side terraces and a private gym, spread over the main deck and upper deck. It is directly connected to the foredeck and helipad via the upper deck and an internal private staircase. A skylight brings light into this passage that opens up into a large space comprising a panoramic lounge and dining area/meeting room.
The plentiful use of frameless glass meanwhile increases visual contact with the marine environment (the yard is proud to have it as one of their technical innovations awarded with Boat International Design and Innovation Award).
As to the amenities on-board, a large alfresco zone with a pool lays on the foredeck of the upper deck in front of the owner’s area. Another larger swimming pool can be found on the main aft deck, above the transom beach club with spa area with sauna and hammam. The set of tenders and toys on-board comprises a 9-metre limousine tender, a 5.5-metre guest tender, a crew tender, rescue tender and Jet Skis.
In line with the unconventional layout configuration, there is no classic sky lounge on the upper deck of this yacht. It has been replaced by two VIP suites aft of the central lobby.
Further guest accommodation comprises two additional VIP suites on the main deck aft and two ensuite cabins on the lower deck, where there is also a gym for guest use.
The yacht comes with two lounge areas, and the sun deck hosts a spacious zone with sun beds and a shower integrated into the mast structure, that can be reached by the main staircase that connects all the decks.
Speed wise, the vessel will be capable of a maximum speed of 17 knots, cruising speed of 16 knots, and long-range speed of 12 knots.
Meanwhile, the latest delivered Tankoa, 50-metre Bintador made her international debut during the 2019 Monaco Yacht Show. Also designed by Francesco Paszkowski, the vessel is distinctive through her four possible hybrid propulsion modes.
