TANKOA S621 – Tribute to Infinity

Genoa, September 2016

Tankoa Yachts reveals S621 superyacht concept at Monaco Yacht Show 2016

Tankoa Yachts – Genoa based boutique shipyard – is proud to announce the latest stunning project at Monaco Yacht Show 2016, Tankoa S621.

Tankoa S621 is outstanding for something hard to define rationally but easy to feel as emotion.

Entirely handcrafted in Italy – with the S621 Tankoa confirms considerably innovative stance in the super and mega yacht sector and states a new benchmark in terms of elegance and living spaces offer.

“When we started designing the model S621, together with Francesco Paszkowski Design Studio, – refers Guido Orsi, President of Tankoa Yachts – we were looking for a new kind of yacht. At the end of the journey we reached something we consider unique”.

Francesco Paszkowski adds: “New Tankoa S621 is inspired by the first two yachts of the shipyard – M/Y 69m Suerte and Tankoa S501- laying the foundation of the contemporary era of Tankoa Yachts. To the first inspirations, the new 62m adds and develops new distinctive features in order to create a yacht where the shipyard’s signature is immediately recognizable. While the lines of the aft and those of the bow remind Tankoa S501 and the shape of the superstructure recalls Suerte, in the project of the 62m, the windows become larger to enhance light of the interiors while the superstructure becomes even more rigorous”.

In a 62 meters yacht the designer conceived amazing harmonious volumes characterized by the extended aft, as big as in much larger yachts, with a huge beach club, an elegant lounge and a wonderful infinity pool.

Tankoa’s S621 owns all the qualities that distinguish the excellence made in Tankoa Yachts with the special leading role of the pool with vanishing edge that makes you feel your private space with no boundary.

Feadship’s 74m Future Concept Choice: a yacht that adapts to any surroundings

September 29, 2016

Written by Maria Korotaeva

Feadship Royal Dutch Shipyards has amazed the yacht industry one more time by introducing its new Future Concept Choice. The main idea of the concept is to be able to transform a yacht to adapt to any surroundings, most importantly providing numerous opportunities for living on and off board. 

The Feadship Future Concepts was first introduced in 2006, with some outstanding concepts, such as X-Stream, F-stream and Breath. This 2016 brand news concept has taken into consideration all previously introduced concepts in the line. “The essence of our thinking on Choice is recognition that the ability to transform a yacht while underway is becoming ever-more important to owners,” explains Ruud Bakker, senior designer at Feadship. “As well as the wealth of choices Feadship clients have before and during the building process, our aim with this new concept is to give even more options once they are on board. The 74.50-metre Choice facilitates autonomous exploration in new and refreshing ways.”

Future Concept Choice

Since exploration has become very of the key concepts in the yacht industry in the past two years, Feadship made sure the new concept would provide innovative features to introduce autonomous exploration. The new 74.5-metre Future Concept Choice has a unique propulsion package. The yacht has its won propulsion package, charged by tenders while docked. The tenders are also detachable and can leave the mothership for a long period of time, while roaming around areas out-of-bounds.

Future Concept Choice

Another amazing feature is a detachable beach house, which also offers water access for swimming and scuba-diving. The Feadship Independent Control System (FICS) informs on the surrounding conditions and informs how a yacht should be responding. Senior designer Ruud Bakker says “FICS supports captains and frees up their time for other things that make the guests’ stay on a Feadship even more pleasant. It has also allowed us to dispense with the conventional wheelhouse: as an autonomous yacht, Choice only requires a bridge lounge with some minor technical buttons for steering. As is often the case with a Feadship Future Concept, one good thing frequently leads to another.”

“We haven’t quite reached the autopilot stage yet, but the way this solution communicates with the environment is optimised to the highest degree,” concludes Bakker.

Press Release

A new future together

Family owned and Bremen based shipyard, Luerssen and Blohm+Voss shipyard in Hamburg are embarking on a new future together. With the acquisition of Blohm+Voss, Luerssen is entering into a long term relationship to strengthen their portfolio in the repair and refit activities for yachts, naval and commercial ships as well as enhancing its naval new build activities within their corporation. The contract between Luerssen and the funds of British private equity investor, Star Capital Partners has been signed and the agreement is currently subject to approval from the German Fair Trade Commission (Bundeskartellamt).

‘With the acquisition of Blohm+Voss we are taking over a shipyard with a strategically advantageous location and versatile production facilities. We want to use these facilities to complement our existing refit and repair activities and also to offer our customers an ever better service’ explains Peter Luerssen, Managing Partner at Luerssen Maritime Beteiligungen GmbH & Co. KG. ‘In addition, we would like to utilise the competence and experience of the shipyard and its employees for the new build of complex naval ships and continue their production at the Hamburg site. The construction of yachts at the Hamburg yard will depend on the overall market situation and it is difficult to judge at this time.’

Pending approval from the German Fair Trade Commission, Luerssen will combine six highly specialised shipyards with approximately 2800 employees in Northern Germany.

The parties have both agreed that the purchase price will be kept confidential. The Star Capital funds acquired Blohm+Voss in December 2011 from ThyssenKrupp.

Peter Luerssen emphasises: ‘After the trade commission’s approval, our primary efforts will be guided towards talking with the employees of Blohm+Voss. We will discuss the necessary steps to efficiently adopt the individual capabilities of the shipyard into our group and secure the balance between our shipyards in the future and together, navigate through the difficult market situation we find ourselves in today.’

Before contacting the Blohm+Voss employees it has been agreed that the current owner will discuss the change of ownership with the shipyard committees.

With the acquisition of Blohm+Voss, Luerssen is welcoming a new partner into their group with whom there is a long history of successful cooperation. ‘Based on the long-term and trusted cooperation on all levels between the two shipyards – we are currently working together on the construction of the new German Navy Frigate Type F125 – we are confident that we already have a good basis on which to continue this relationship and to move forwards with the companies under one roof’, says Dr. Klaus Borgschulte, Technical Director at Luerssen Werft GmbH & Co. KG.

CEO at Blohm+Voss, Fred van Beers comments, ‘For Blohm+Voss, customer focus and service take priority. With Luerssen we are gaining a long-term strategic owner who wants to jointly develop our company and expand our core business services.’

The family owned Luerssen Group was founded in 1875 and specialises in the design and production of yachts over 60 metres as well as naval and coast guard ships. The commercial and naval new build business is complimented by comprehensive after-sales support including repair, refit, maintenance and worldwide logistics services.
