Luxury Italian yacht builder Tankoa is newer on the yacht building scene but has made quite a splash with its impressive superyachts. The brand was created in 2007 and swiftly began production of its first two yachts in 2008; both projects were larger than 65 meters. The brand’s ethos revolves around the client experience. From the conceptualization of a project to its build to the after-sales service, Tankoa is dedicated to making each yacht owner’s dream a reality. The brand does not shy away from pushing boundaries or breaking the mold when it comes to building the dreams of its owners. Utilizing advanced technology, new design aesthetics and unique concepts, Tankoa is proud to produce luxury superyachts that provide owners with the ultimate experience at sea.
Tankoa is located Genoa Sestri Ponente, Italy. The city has a deep-seated maritime heritage and is renowned for its shipbuilding tradition. Strategically located on the Mediterranean Sea, Tankoa found the city to be the perfect location for its shipyard. The brand’s five-story, multi-service head office is located in a striking avant-garde building that the administration, technical, executive and commercial offices call home. The shipyard itself boasts 3,600 square meters of sheds; each 18 meters high with two climate-controlled production areas 20 meters wide by 90 meters long. Each of these spaces has an independent operational department dedicated to the yacht in build. Tankoa’s quay is 250 meters long and 20 meters widespread across 11,000 square meters of water. It allows for maneuvering and mooring of the largest yachts in the global fleet. The brand added another 15,000 square meters for an extra berth. A further smaller, but completely fortified dock at the end of the quay welcomes between eight and 10 medium-size yachts for mooring. Tankoa not only builds yachts, it also is a full refit yard capable of completing yacht refits and renewals to the same standards as its new-build projects. The yard’s ideal location in Genoa allows for easy access. The refit team utilizes the most advanced technologies to refresh and revitalize yachts to their highest possible potential ensuring they leave the yard better than new.
