Vitruvius Yachts and Tankoa
Vitruvius Yachts Ltd, led by the designer Philippe Briand, have dealt with both the exterior design and the naval architecture. Despite being 52 meters in length, the yacht remains under 500 GT.
During the design, great attention was paid both to the development of the hull and to containing weights, in order to obtain an efficient yacht with reduced consumption; this particular aspect is further emphasised by the hybrid propulsion of this new Tankoa yacht, complete with batteries and developed jointly with Siemens.
Tankoa continues to be a shipyard for owners who intend to build a full custom yacht that weighs below 500GT. The Vitruvius Yachts 52 will be built entirely of aluminum and will be delivered in the spring of 2025.
