Italian yard Tankoa Yachts has released the first details of a new 53 metre planing superyacht called S533 Saetta. The S533 Saetta’s streamlined and aggressive lines stand out, characterized by their 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.


Designed by regular yard collaborator Francesco Paszkowski, this speedy model offers 28 knots flat-out and comfortable cruising at 24 knots, thanks to a triple MTU engine set-up, paired to Kamewa waterjets and a booster. 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.

“Tankoa S533 represents a leap forward, a glimpse of the future” declared Francesco Paszkowski. “The evolution of the path we have followed up to now with the new project for Tankoa, a yard that we are proud to work with, combines speed with solidity, cleanliness of lines and forms with dynamic lightness. The extensive use of glass was adopted to bring in the sea, and the essentiality characterizing the exterior styling amplifies this sen sensation of an endless horizon.”

No interior details have been disclosed as yet, with the total guest accommodation and crew capacity unclear, but the 9.2 metre draught should allow for plenty of room on board.
