Tankoa Just Launched Its First 148-Foot Superyacht, and She’s a Beauty

Tankoa Superyacht

The 148-footer, which is the first unit in the T450 series, was just launched from the Italian builder’s shipyard in Genoa. Christened Go, the new superyacht is Tankoa’s first model under 164 feet and marks a new chapter in the yard’s design direction.

Go was sold in late 2021, shortly after the T450 series was presented in 2020. The American client, who was introduced to Tankoa by the Italian Yacht Group of Fort Lauderdale, requested that the original volume of 430 GT be increased to 450 GT to provide more interior volume. As a result, Go is at once compact and spacious.

Penned by Giorgio Cassetta’s eponymous studio, the newcomer retains Tankoa’s timeless aesthetic and signature sleek lines but introduces bold vertical elements on the superstructure. The vessel was built from steel and aluminum to ensure sturdiness without too much extra weight.

“The all-new Tankoa T450 M/Y Go is a great addition to the Tankoa core fleet of superyachts, and it is an incredibly flexible platform on which we can create semi-custom yachts, offering big volumes without compromising on the sleek and elegant lines,” Claudio Corvino, sales and business development manager for the Americas and Asia-Pacific, said in a statement.

Expansive windows flood the interior with natural light, further accentuating the generous proportions. In terms of accommodation, Go offers a huge owner’s stateroom forward on the main deck and five comfy guest suites on the lower deck.

Heading outside, the generous beach club features opening side platforms that wrap around the stern and a sliding sun pad that covers the pool while Go is cruising the seas. In addition, the large sundeck is equipped with a hydromassage tub and a shaded dining area, while the upper deck sports a dedicated gym and a fire pit in the bow.

“This first unit is a statement of what Tankoa can offer even at this size, and the final result was made possible by great teamwork between the shipyard, the young and enthusiastic client, and Giorgio M. Cassetta’s studio,” adds Corvino.

Go will be delivered in the spring and make her international debut at the boat shows in the fall. The best part? There’s already a second T450 under construction.
