The 45m steel T450 is the first Tankoa yacht less than 50m long. She will expand the yard's range to a more compact segment with a gross tonnage of up to 400 register tons.
This new yacht will be fully in line with the reputation of the Italian company that she has earned over the 13 years of her existence. The T450, like all her older sisters before her, will be distinguished by high quality construction, comfort, innovation and elegance.
«We were inspired to create this model by the extraordinary success of our 50m platform. The Bintador and Vertige have already been delivered to their owners, and two more are under construction. The T450 will be another proof that Tankoa is capable of building yachts with a capacity of less than 500 register tons, which in terms of their spirit and quality will be just like big boats. This new 45m model has been designed to be as flexible as possible. In terms of both interior and exterior spaces, it leaves the impression of a much larger boat,"»says Tankoa sales manager Giuseppe Mazza.
In terms of exterior design, Tankoa remains true to itself in this project. The T450's features include an accentuation of the vertical lines of the aluminium superstructure that blends in harmoniously with the smooth, horizontal decks.
«Elegant design deliberately devoid of any useless decoration. The T450's design features and rich kitting will make it a truly unique offer in its segment,"»says designer Giorgio M. Cassetta.
The T450 has a capacity of only 405 gross tonnes, but can accommodate 12 guests. The four main guest cabins are located on the lower deck, while the VIP and master stateroom, stretching almost 9m wide, are on the main deck.
The main living room, combined with the dining room, is only separated from the aft terrace by a floor-to-ceiling glass partition.
The swimming pool with glass walls on this model can be located here, right between the stairs leading to the swimming platform. There is also a layout option, with a sofa overlooking the swim platform and water, and a large bar on the main deck (just on the renderers).
Another swimming pool can be installed at the stern of a spacious sundeck. Under the canopy, a dining table will hide in the shade, while the bar and sofa will take up the remaining space on the bow.
The upper deck will occupy an intermediate position between the sundeck and main deck, not only physically but also in terms of functionality. It is no longer as official «»as the main deck, but is not the place for noisy sunbathing at the bar as a sundeck. Rather, the upper deck is designed for quiet, contemplative relaxation - you can enjoy measured dinners in the open air and enjoy the scenery from the panoramic glazed living room. In the forward half of the suite there is a control station, captain's cabin, guest tender and lifeboat.
Crew quarters for 8 people, crew quarters, galley, pantry and laundry will take the bow and stern of the lower deck.
The T450 can be equipped with hybrid propulsion (2 MAN D2862L engines of 1429 hp plus 2 Northern Lights generators of 116 kW at 2300 rpm). The maximum speed of the T450 is 15 knots, while the cruise speed is 14 knots. The economic mode at 10 knots will allow the yacht to cruise up to 4000 nautical miles. This is enough to cross the Atlantic.
