One of the oldest and one of the newest Italian shipyards have come up with innovative and highly contemporary designs for 40 and 50 metre yachts. Best in their class? Read on and decide.
Italy's Finest @ 50
Tankoa’s first 50 metre yacht was so highly rated that the shipyard decided to extend the concept into a series. Hulls 2 and 3 quickly sold and Edmiston recommends clients look at securing Hull 4 for delivery in November 2020.
Francesco Paszkowski has designed yachts for many shipyards including Baglietto, Sanlorenzo and Heesen. And while many of the designs evolve, Tankoa’s 50 metre Hull 4 is among his finest.
Not only is the interior styling cool contemporary minimalist Italian at its best but the entire yacht is full of innovative ideas.
The sun deck has infinity views front and back as the superstructure curves to elegantly tapered points. The idea is repeated on the upper deck.
On the main deck, not only does the master suite have twin balconies but the aft terrace can also be expanded by automatically unfolding bulwarks.
A substantial beach club can be arranged to include a sea-level gym. Interior light levels are inspiring with huge full height windows in both salons.
Proactive with propulsion, the hybrid power plant has four modes of operation depending on the owner’s priorities at any given moment. Ranging from silence to speed, diesel-electric, full electric, diesel-only mode and boost provide options to select either a range of up to 5,000 miles or 18 knots. At anchor using electric power there is zero pollution or noise.
Delivery is scheduled for November 2020 and the interior can be customised. To see the yacht under construction and get a full briefing, talk to your Edmiston broker.

The most distinctive sub 60 metre Benetti
Benetti is the master builder of semi-production composite yachts. 95ft Delfino, 116ft Mediterraneo and 132ft Classic offer outstanding value, defining ‘classic’ qualities of space and style. But when they wanted a new 40 metre concept, instead of evolving, they went back to the drawing board.
Benetti worked with British designers RWD to produce a concept that is totally unlike anything they have ever built. This was then interpreted by New York interior specialists Bonetti-Kozerski resulting in a 41 metre yacht full of innovative ideas.
The most obvious innovation is when the yacht is at anchor. The transom and both side bulwarks unfold to create a huge sea-level terrace surrounding an ‘oasis’ pool of over six square metres. Three steps up
and glass doors to the main saloon retract to create an enormous inside/
outside entertaining area.
With a spa on the main deck the lounge converts to an inside dining area with the skylounge and upper deck reversing the concept to the extent that the salon even forms part of the open plan bridge area. With a range of 4,000 miles and a maximum speed of 16 knots, Hull 1 will be delivered in July 2020 with scope to customise the interior furnishings. Talk to your Edmiston broker and be first to the Oasis.
