A TRUE TECHNICAL MARVEL
Tankoa 72-meter/236’ Solo is not only a gorgeous looking yacht designed for her exterior lines by Francesco Paszkowski with interior by Paszkowski’s interior lead designer Margherita Casprini, she is also one of the most technically advanced yachts in her category with hull design by Professor Ruggiero.
A few numbers speak for themselves: 72 meters long and 11.60 meters wide, Solo is 1,600 GT with a displacement of 1,120 tons at half load and 1,240 tons at full load. Powered by twin Caterpillar 3516Bmain engines developing 1,825 kW, she is capable of 17.5 knot stop speed.
At 10 knots, with one generator running, she burns a total of195 liters per hour, providing a range of 7,000 nautical miles. At 15.7 knots, she burns 570 liters per hour for a range of over 4,000 nautical miles with a 10% margin. At her full speed of 17.5 knots, she still has over 3,000 nautical miles range with a 10% margin.
Tankoa 72-m/236’ Solo, apart from being one the most efficient yachts in recent history, is high tech, eco-friendly and an incredibly well-equipped superyacht.
Like all yachts in the Tankoa range, she comes with independent rudder systems, in her case from Rolls Royce, allowing manoeuvring in the tightest situations supported by a 200-kW Naiad hydraulic bow thruster.
The three Northern Lights generators, two 230 kW and one 155 kW, are equipped with HUG soot burners to eliminate the usual black smoke stain on the sides of the hull and allow guests to enjoy all the exterior aft decks as well as the beach club with open terraces with no odours than the sea and salty air.
The main engines are equipped with Eco Spray SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction), significantly reducing emissions.
At Tankoa we think about the next generation, so the yacht is also equipped with a CO2 monitoring system allowing the captain to constantly find the sweet spot in terms of speed to reduce emissions to the minimum. Thus, the yacht is delivered with an Environmental Management Plan(EMP) manual.
Solo has also been built according to the B5th rule requiring on fuel tanks that do not exceed 36-cubic meters each and build structurally at 1/5thof the maximum beam from the hull sides. As a result, fuel spillage risk is very limited in case of lateral collision.
As safety and comfort are paramount, she is equipped with lots of redundant equipment, including two independent stabilizer power packs powering the four zero -peed fins of 3.6 square meters each.
The construction of Solo has been followed and classed by both Lloyds and RINA who granted a paperless bridge certificate. The wheelhouse is also equipped with a semi-integrated Boening console.
