Tankoa Yachts revealed details of project S701, a new 70m motoryacht concept, focusing on broad, open-plan living spaces that flow freely from indoors to outdoors.
The builder says model S701 is close in being a sister ship to S693 now under construction, but she has a different transom and a wide body upper deck.
The general arrangement has a well-studied passage regarding the flow of the guests and crew onboard, all of the dedicated spaces were thought in order to fulfil an owner’s wishes.
Delivery time for S701 has been set between 24 and 26 months.
Amenities on the S701 include a large ‘sea lounge’ and private balconies from which to enjoy the sea view. On the upper aft deck is a dining area, alfresco bar and seating space with a wind screen, while sky lounge facilities include a touch and helipad that can be converted into a dance floor, a pool and a large gym. The yard believes that will help the young yard to develop a reputation for quality.
Further up is a sunbathing nook on top of the coach roof, offering 360° views from sun beds and sofas. The master suite, forward on the upper deck covers almost 100 square metres, with a 180° panoramic sea view, sitting room, spa pool and terrace.
Commenting on the project, Michel Karsenti, sales and marketing director of Tankoa, says: “Our aim is not to compete with our Italian colleagues, it is to compete with Northern European shipyards. There is a highly tangible reason why our price is higher. But our italian business model and regulations mean that we will be more competitive than Northern Europe.”
