Custom Build: Tankoa T450


Italian Yacht Group’s Sale of Tankoa T450 M/Y “GO” Launches from Genoa

Genoa, 02.06.2024 – The Italian Yacht Group, North America’s Leader in Italian Yacht Sales, along with Tankoa Yachts, the renowned boutique shipyard, proudly announce the launch and christening of a masterpiece – the Tankoa T450 “GO”.

Key Features of Tankoa T450 M/Y “GO”:

• Exterior and Interior Design: Giorgio M. Cassetta, a maestro of marine aesthetics, lends his brilliance to both the exterior and interior, setting a new standard for luxury in vessels under 50 meters.

• Customized Layout: Tailored for an astute US client, “GO” boasts a layout that achieves the perfect balance of style and functionality.

• Recreational Delights: The large sundeck offers a hydromassage tub and shaded dining area, while the upper deck is thoughtfully equipped with a dedicated gym and a fire pit in the bow.

• Masterful Design: Accommodations include a luxurious master stateroom on the main deck and five comfortable guest suites on the lower deck.

• Expansion Plans: With the second hull already under construction, the T450 series is set to redefine the realm of compact luxury yachts.

Innovation and Collaboration:

Sold in late 2021, GO is the first model in the Tankoa T450 series. This nautical jewel not only expands Tankoa’s luxury yacht range but also solidifies the shipyard’s reputation for quality and comfort. Constructed with a pioneering blend of steel and aluminum, the T450, brainchild of Cassetta – Yacht Design & Architecture, presents a bold fusion of vertical elements, complemented by lustrous horizontal lines.

The conception of GO can be traced back to an American visionary who, in collaboration with the Italian Yacht Group of Ft Lauderdale, Palm Beach, and Sag Harbour, fueled the evolution of the original gross tonnage from 430GT to 450GT. Boomer Jousma, Co-Founder and Sales Director at Italian Yacht Group attests, “The introduction of the Tankoa T450 marks an exciting milestone for Tankoa’s esteemed fleet of superyachts. This versatile semi-custom yacht platform exemplifies unparalleled spaciousness while maintaining the contemporary, refined aesthetic integrity.”

Luxurious Accommodations:

GO has delighted its owner and guests with a sprawling master stateroom forward on the main deck, accompanied by five inviting guest suites on the lower deck. Expansive windows flood the interior with natural light, emphasizing the spaciousness in every corner. The beach club, featuring opening side platforms and a sliding sunpad, promises a touch of paradise during navigation.

The large sundeck offers a hydromassage tub and a shaded dining area. The upper deck, adorned with a dedicated gym and a bow fire pit, showcases Tankoa’s commitment to blending luxury with leisure.

Future Horizons:

With the second unit in the T450 series already spoken for and the TX450 on the horizon, GO is poised for delivery in the spring, promising to make waves at the international boat shows and in marinas along the eastern seaboard this upcoming year. Tankoa Yachts invites the world to witness the birth of a seafaring legend – the Tankoa T450 M/Y GO.
