Tankoa TLV62, a superyacht for relaxation

Here is Tankoa Yachts' new concept, the TLV62, a 60-foot superyacht designed to relax and have a good time at sea.

The Tankoa TLV62 concept was designed by Giancarlo Mussino, manager of the brokerage company SINOS - who had sold the 50-metre hybrid motoryacht Tankoa Bintador - and the designer Luca Vallebona, familiar with the site.

The idea is to offer a boat with elegant lines and innovative layouts that offer new and practical solutions without wanting to fall into the absolute trap of novelty.

The TLV62 was designed from the 60 m Tankoa platform with the main objective of creating informal and elegant spaces near the sea. The exterior lines are refined and the yacht's structure is relatively low on the water, for "to remind us of the elegance of sailing ships." There are some distinctive elements such as the shape of the hull glazing and the large cockpit terrace.

The design of the yacht is rather balanced, without unnecessary design elements, with a vertical bow and a vertiginous bow as well as a large open transom. This large terrace on the main deck is the ideal place to spend your days outdoors, without any visual interruption between the covered terrace and the cockpit at sea level.

In terms of interior design, the lounge has been moved forward and shortened, unlike traditional arrangements. Thus, from the cockpit terrace to the lounge, there is the asymmetrical swimming pool, a covered dining area, crew quarters, access to the stairs and finally, the lounge at the front.

"Most of the time on superyachts, the main lounge takes up a lot of space, but is rarely used. So I took the living space outside, reduced the size of the dining room and installed a small television room and the main dining room on the terrace of the upper deck." explains Luca Vallebona.

The asymmetrical shape of the pool with this stepped cockpit breaks with current codes to provide an informal relaxation area.

The main cabin is huge with a surface area of 93 m2 and is located at the front of the main deck. The layout is also unique, with a row layout, but without visual interruption: from the landing, access to the office, the walk-through wardrobe, the cabin and the bathroom on the starboard side. To port, behind the bulkhead is the crew's garage.

On the lower deck are four double guest cabins, crew quarters, with galley and lounge as well as a side garage for the 25-foot tender limousine. The technical room is located just next door with direct access to the engine room.

On the upper deck there is a through VIP cabin and a large open-air lounge with a fireplace at the front of the deck. There is enough space left to store the jet skis in the nose tip. The side garage forward, at the main deck level, houses a jet tender for crew use. There is even a lower deck with laundry room, refrigerated storage room, cold and dry warehouse and a sports hall for the crew.

The large sundeck is at least half the length of the hull and offers several living spaces: relaxation area with sofa on the back, jacuzzi, bar, dining room and tanning area on the front.

Powered by two CAT 3512 engines, the superyacht will have a top speed of 16.5 knots and a range of 4500 miles at 12 knots from 4?500 nm.
