Italian superyacht-builder Tankoa Yachts has teamed up with one of the world’s leading design firms to jointly work on a new 72m project codenamed Progetto Bolide.

Rome-based Exclusiva has delivered over 36 design projects over the last five years and has won several awards. The company, which has offices in Moscow, Abu Dhabi and Shanghai, has completed design projects for everyone from Gazprom and Ferrari China, to heads of companies and heads of states.

“We’ve been visiting many shipyards in the past year as we spent several months creating our ideal yacht design and our wish was to keep cultivating the Italian heritage also in the building,” says Fabio Mazzeo, design director at Exclusiva.

“The approach, flexibility and processes we found at Tankoa are simply unique. Tankoa has no will to run after big production numbers. The guys there are just delivering superior quality as a direct result of their passion. With this in mind, we felt Tankoa was the perfect fit for our Progetto Bolide."

Tankoa Yachts and Exclusiva will present the full project and model of Progetto Bolide on September 29, 2017 at the upcoming Monaco Yacht Show.
