Tankoa launches hybrid

ADVERTISEMENT

Tankoa Yachts recently launched its 165-foot (50m) S501 Hybrid (previously named S502 Elettra) at its Genoa shipyard. Sea trials will follow final fit out and dock trials, then the yacht will be delivered to her European owner in time for the summer season, according to a Tankoa press release.

S501 is based on a design similar to Vertige, the first in Tankoa’s 50m series. Differences include a hybrid propulsion package, a galley on the main deck rather than the lower deck, and a touch-and-go helipad on the foredeck. Also, the S501 has five cabins – an owner’s suite on the main deck and four guest cabins below.

Powered by twin MTU 8V4000M54 (895 kW) and two 300 kW electric motors fed by two 250 kW variable speed generators, the yacht is expected to make its official debut at the 2019 Monaco Yacht Show in September.
