Just like sails in the wind, the decks float as if suspended between sea and sky

Tankoa S801 mega yacht Golden Wings is Francesco Paszkowski‘s vision of Italy’s most famous and beautiful ship of all time, the Amerigo Vespucci. Her superstructure seems to be literally suspended in mid-air, an interpretation of how the sailing ship would appear if her rig was shifted aft.

The reference to Amerigo Vespucci is an excellent way to pay tribute to one of the greatest Italian maritime explorers of the world.

Innovative structures: steel, aluminum and titanium

With advanced structures and applied technologies Tankoa Yachts intends to build one of the world’s most innovative yachts. The hull will be made of high tensile steel, with a light aluminum alloy superstructure. Other state of the art technologies, such as titanium reinforcements, presently under study, should be part of the package.

The S801 yacht Golden Wings concept project will be completed in the next few months with further development of technical specifications, principal system layouts and engineering.
