Tankoa Yachts | About Classic Principles Of Contemporary Design

Tankoa has launched M/Y Solo at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show. Rethinking the exterior lines of Suerte, another mega yacht of Genoa-based shipyard, Francesco Paszkowski Design in cooperation with of Margherita Casprini, has created a true yacht interior marvel.



VIP Cabin

The idea behind the Solo’s interior design was to create an exquisitely elegant atmosphere by designing a modern, minimalist but warm interior. The use of cold materials like marble and steel as well as contrasting them with the subdued tones of the soft furnishing and carpets create timelessness and enhance the sense of elegance. The balance that is essential in the overall design language is reflected in the finest yacht interior craftsmanship that remained focused on the smallest detail, creating “the big picture of human art”. 

Main woods: high gloss Macassar ebony, “fiammato grigio”, custom tinted grey oak and black oak.
Ceilings: made of brushed aluminium panels, tinted grey oak and nubuck.
Stones: Forest Black Antique marble from France, Cappuccino marble from Rajasthan, Striato Elegante Honed marble from India, and Pure White Onyx from Mexico.
Stairwell flooring: of white Onyx Cristallino while the walls are made of destressed oak sourced from a 300-year-old farm in Norway.
Hammam marble: Calacatta from Tuscany.
The sauna wood: sourced from a medieval castle in Finland.     


Upper Deck Salon

The yacht interiors radiate a contrast with their minimalist but cozy modernity. The fact that the external and the internal design language remains surprisingly harmonious (despite the Owner’s desire to create a strong contrast between interior and exterior), is a true testimony for the masterful craftsmanship of Francesco Paszkowski Design.


Dinning Area

In her six cabins M/Y Solo can accommodate twelve guests. The hairdressing/massage room, an amazing beach club, a glass-walled gym with its own terrace, spa and a swimming pool are just some of the features to provide all the necessary comforts for the Owner as well as for charter guests. For the ultimate charter experience Francesco Paszkowski underlines that this design: “required continuity between the various social spaces, a precise but flexible division according to use, good communication between the exterior and interior, and the rigorous use of architectural principles”.

CHAPTER 2: B.E.A.C.H CLUB – Best Escape Anyone Can Have

The Beach Club, a key feature a board SOLO, is a fabulous place of relaxation, rest and tranquility. It’s equipped with sofas, bar, TV, bathroom and an oversized glass-walled gym (created by Technogym) with fold-out terrace that is also directly linked to the spa zone. The latter comes with sauna, also fitted with its own fold-out terrace, hammam and 5°C Celsius chilled water shower.

CHAPTER 3: MASTER SUITE – Make Your Rest Artful

The master suite has separate terraces and a Bisazza mosaic-tiled, glass-walled jacuzzi. Full-height windows with 180° views enable admiring new horizons, drifting in endless sea of space while the two skylights further enhance the sense of freedom. The Owner’s study (as well as the hair dressing/massage room) can be converted into additional cabins as they are both equipped with an en-suite bathroom.
