Tankoa S502 Eletta – 50-metre

TANKOA S502 ELETTRA – 50-metre / 165’ HYBRID WORKS IN PROGRESS
Tankoa 50-metre Elettra’s construction is progressing on schedule for delivery to her European owner in May 2019.

Based on a similar design to Vertige, the first in 50-metre series, she differs from her predecessor in three key aspects:
– Project Elettra is a true hybrid yacht.
– She will have 5 cabins with a main deck owner’s suite and four guest cabins on the lower deck.
– Her foredeck has been equipped with a touch-and-go helipad.

ABOUT TANKOA’S ELETTRA HYBRID SYSTEM
She is powered by twin MTU 8V4000M54 (895 kW) and two electric motors (300 kW) driven by two variable speed variable speed generators (250 kW).

In DEM mode (Diesel Electric mode) the electric motors are fed by the two variable-speed generators, allowing for a speed of 10.5 knots and a range of 4,900 nm.
This mode provides reduced fuel consumption and very low noise levels.

In Hybrid Mode, one of the two main engines drives its shaft electric motor to generate electrical power to run the second electric motor for propulsion and hotel loads. At 12 knots, the yacht will have a cruising range of approx. 4,000 nm. In this mode, the two diesel generators are simply turned off during navigation.

In Traditional Mode, the yacht can sail at 17 knots using both main diesel engines for propulsion and a diesel generator for onboard services to feed the hotel loads. In this case, the variable speed generators self-adjust their rpm to the required load.

In Full-Speed Mode, with both main engines and generators supplying power to the two electric motors and feeding the hotel loads, the yacht will reach a top speed in excess of 18 knots.

ABOUT HER INTERIORS
Her interior design is by Francesco Paszkowski Design in collaboration with Margherita Casprini and will call for light yet modern tones and a predominance of natural materials.

She will be a 5-cabin configuration.

Elettra’s lower deck will be equipped with a gym and beach club, three VIP cabins with king-size beds and two guest cabins with twin berths, plus crew quarters and service areas.

On the main deck, the cockpit comes with a spacious sunbed, U-shaped sofa, coffee tables and bar. On the same deck level, the interior comprises a spacious salon, galley, dining room and oversized master suite with office and day lounge equipped with fold-down balconies on both sides.

The upper deck was designed around spacious outdoor areas for guest’s relaxation, with a dining table and access to the comfortable sky lounge. The foredeck includes a solarium and open-air lounge, all designed to offer maximum privacy.

Comfort also reigns on the fly deck relaxation areas with sofas, sun-beds, up & down tables, bar and a large Jacuzzi.
