New year… fresh superyacht news from Palmawatch.

A new planing 53 metre yacht, with a top speed of 28 knots has been announced by Italian yard Tankoa Yachts.

The S553 Saetta has an outstanding streamlined profile with a beam of 9.2 metres, characterized by the widespread use of glass surfaces, giving the owner and his guests the possibility to fully live the surrounding environment with nothing that interrupts their direct contact with the sea.

The three MTU 16V 2000 M94L water jets give her a top speed of 28 knots and a cruising speed of 24. At cruising speed the Tankoa S533 Saetta’s range is 600 miles; this doubles to 1,200 miles at a cruising speed of 17 knots.

This latest model further enhances the yard’s line of planning yachts including the Tankoa 58 Open, which was launched last year.

TANKOA Yachts say that they have opted for “a multi-cultural approach of yacht construction.”  The yard has successfully merged business ethics, high quality precision engineering, and Italian DNA in design and flexibility.
