A trye technical marvel
Tankoa 72-meter/236 Solo is not only a gorgeous looking yacht designed for her exterior lines by Francesco Paszkowski with interior by Paszkowskis interior lead designer Margherita Casprini, she is also one of the most technically advanced yachts in her category with hull design by Professor Ruggiero.
A few numbers speak for themselves
72 meters long and 11.60 meters wide, Solo is 1,600 GT with a displacement of 1,120 tons at half load and 1,240 tons at full load. Powered by twin Caterpillar 3516B main engines developing 1,825 of 17.5 knots top speed.
At 10 knots, with one generator running, she burns a total of 195 liters per hour, providing a range of 7,000 nautical miles.
At 15.7 knots, she burns 570 liters per hour for a range of over 4,000 nautical miles with a 10% margin.
At her full speed of 17.5 knots, she still has over 3,000 nautical miles range with a 10% margin.
Tankoa 72-m/236 Solo, apart from being one the most efficient yachts in recent history, is high tech, eco-friendly and an incredibly well-equipped superyacht.
Like all yachts in the Tankoa range, she comes with independent rudder systems, in her case from Rolls Royce, allowing manoeuvring in the tightest situations supported by a 200-kW Naiad hydraulic bow thruster.
The three Northern Lights generators, two 230 kW and one 155 kW, are equipped with HUG soot burners to eliminate the usual black smoke stain on the sides of the hull and allow guests to enjoy all the exterior aft decks as well as the beapen terraces with no odours than the sea and salty air.
The main engines are equipped with Eco Spray SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction), significantly reducing emissions.
At Tankoa we think about the next generation, so the yacht is also equipped with a CO2 monitoring system allowing the captain to constantly find the sweet spot in terms of speed to reduce emissions to the minimum. Thus, the yacht is delivered with an Environmental Management Plan (EMP) manual.
Solo has also been built according to the B5th rule requiring on fuel tanks that do not exceed 36-cubic meters each and build structurally at 1/5th of the maximum beam from the hull sides. As a result, fuel spillage risk is very limited in case of lateral collision.
As safety and comfort are paramount, she is equipped with lots of redundant equipment, including two independent stabilizer power packs powering the four zero -peed fins of 3.6 square meters each.
The construction of Solo has been followed and classed by both Lloyds and RINA who granted a paperless bridge certificate. The wheelhouse is also equipped with a semi-integrated Boening console.
Brief description and design highlights
Solo has accommodation for 12 guests in six cabins, including the master suite on the gigantic private owner’s deck, a VIP suite and four doubles (two of them convertible into twins) located on the main deck to ensure total quietness.
In addition, the hair dressing/massage room and the owners study can also be converted into additional cabins as they are both equipped with an en-suite bathroom.
The VIP and guest cabins offer astonishing sea views, thanks to unusually large windows.
The beach club, a key feature aboard Solo, is a spacious and welcoming area. Equipped with sofas, bar, TV, bathroom, and an oversized glass-walled gym by Technogym with fold-out terrace, it is also directly linked to the spa zone. The latter comes with a sauna, also fitted with its own folderrace, hammam and 5 Celsius chilled water shower.
The upper deck houses the paperless semi-integrated Boning bridge with radio room, comfortable captains cabin, and a hair dressing/massage room that can be converted into an additional cabin for a bodyguard or an officer. The aft section of this deck features an enormous observation lounge with almost floor-to-ceiling windows, 90 4K QLED TV screen, baby grand piano, bar and bio-ethanol fireplace.
The owners apartment features an owners study/media room.

The owner will be able to arrive in style using the touch and go helideck aft (with a 4.5-ton certification, sufficient for most twin turbine helicopters, such as an Augusta 109), and has his own Jacuzzi, bar, saloon, outdoor breakfasn the same deck, the owner can enjoy his own independent TV room, also convertible in an additional cabin thanks to an additional bathroom. The aft deck is equipped with a six-meter transversal swimming pool, sofas and a pop-up TV screen recessed into the ceiling to turn this entire space into an outdoor cinema room.
Forward of the winter garden and reception desk/bar, the main deck houses a cinema lounge/library that can be enclosed by an electric sliding glass panel, the dining room with its table for 16, and a stabilized fish tank. The cut-down bulwarks with laminated glass panels allow for sea views while having dinner.
