Exterior and interior design

Owner’s requests had been received loud and clear by Francesco Paszkowski and Margherita Casprini. Interiors shall be modern, but warm and inviting using only noble and natural materials. Circulation onboard was to be made easy by wide passages and crew was to be able to perform their tasks without interfering with guests privacy.

Exterior details

Guests will be able to board the yacht either from the swimming platform, via the lateral tender garages, by the gangway or the hydraulic Royal ladder. When boarding from the platform, they will access the interior walking trough the magnificent “Beach Club” equipped with saloon, large TV screen, bar, day head, shower, massage room, sauna and hammam, both with direct access to the sea, thanks to their fold out terraces.

From the gangway, guests will discover an oversized lounge. The owner, being very attentive to the well-being of his family and numerous friends, wanted this space generous. Around 20 people will be able to take place on the aft deck sofas.

From the side Royal ladder, guests will find an even wider space amidships on starboard side and a massive glass window allowing access to the main lobby, the interior stairwell and the main elevator, S693 being equipped with two elevators.

The upper deck is equipped, in its aft section protected by the overhang of the sun deck, with a 16 person dining table, a lounge and two L-shaped sofas allowing perfect view to the sea.

The fore part of this deck is devoted to the owner’s private terrace with direct side access from his suite. He enjoys a 6 meters long sofa with its own built-in refrigerator and a four people Jacuzzi surrounded by sun-pads. The position of this terrace offers total privacy considering the set back of the wheelhouse on the top deck and the lower position of the fore-pick.

The sun-deck, aft of the top deck, is another great social area with a touch-and-go helipad which is large enough for a twin turbine helicopter such as an Augusta 109 to bring guests onboard. At night, the heli-deck becomes a dance floor with lights, speakers and a DJ station.

Further to the front, two sun pads will allow guests to dry up in the sun after using the 5 meter swimming pool with built-in stools to enjoy drinks at the bar that ends the pool. The pool is also  equipped with a waterfall flowing like a water blade from the superstructure.

Another interesting feature is the crow’s nest that has been designed on the roof where owner and guests will surely enjoy navigation. This area is accessible via an invisible ladder or using the second elevator leading there from the gym.

In the garage of the tender will be placed two Seabobs CAYAGO F7 two tender Dariel DT of 7.50 meters with engines Yanmar 260 hp duo prop for 13 passengers and nav / com / music equipment.

Interiors details

MY/ Suerte Tankoa S693 has been designed by Francesco Paszkowski in collaboration with Margherita Casprini and engineered to offer the utmost comfort. From the aft deck, access to the interior is not made by usual aft automatic sliding doors – that constantly opens and closes when people are moving on the aft deck – but through lateral sliding glass doors.

The main saloon the owner wanted to be actually a true family/TV room. The U shaped sofa is surmounted by a library. Including the armchairs, over 16 people will be able to watch latest blockbusters on the 88 inches curve screen 4K recessed in a black stone wall. Further to the front, the 16 people dining table is centrally located and benefits huge floor to ceiling windows too. On the saloon side, the partition wall is highlighted with a fish tank while the fore bulkhead is a giant wine display created by Paszkowski.

The main deck is devoted to guest accommodations. Four guest cabins and a full width VIP suite which are designed in a very zen style will enjoy total silence compared to usual lower deck located guests cabins. Each cabin, considering their main deck position, are flooded by natural light, thanks to oversized windows instead of conventional portholes. Decoration is a mixture of washed teak, elegant Chinese lacquered ceilings, black piano lacquered details and black marble with some touches of rich leather upholstery.

The lower deck is entirely devoted to crew members who are benefiting particular attention to volume and ease of work including TV room, rest area and crew mess.

The upper deck is basically divided in two sections. The fore part is entirely devoted to the owner’s apartment with study/library, bathroom with his and her toilets. The aft part of this deck is a true achievement in design and functionality for guests. The central column hides the exhausts’ dry engine pipes (the usual options of under water exhaust was not retained considering Tankoa’s will to reduce vibration and noise to the maximum, due to the Rina Green plus certification as well.

One side of this column is dressed with 3D effect Jerusalem stone while the other three faces are covered with leather “sellier” panels. On starboard side is an Opium bed facing a flat screen TV hidden by a glass panel. This section will be used as a casual TV room but, thanks to sliding walls, it can be isolated to be turned into an extra cabin with bathroom. On port side, there is a Sushi Bar with stools and two restaurant styled round tables.

The center aft portion of the deck is a panoramic salon with giant flat screen TV, fireplace and baby grand piano. The ceiling, here, is a masterpiece with high glass skylights installed in the bottom of the swimming pool.

Silence and Environmental Consciousness

Suerte S693 will not only be an extremely comfortable yacht to cruise onboard, thanks to her volume of 1,467 Gross Tons, but she is also very quiet, due to her up-to-date sound and vibration insulation devices and technologies. The fore section of her superstructure is made of high tensile steel instead of regular aluminum. This will reduce the propagation of vibrations when the vessel suddenly decelerates when running in big swells. All of the floors, bulkheads and ceilings are floating, thus eliminating parasitic noise.

Both engine’s dry stack exhausts are equipped with carbon filters to limit emissions, satisfying the RINA Green Plus annotation certificate. Generators are equipped with pressurized exhaust mufflers, mixing exhaust gas with water to reduce noise when at anchor or in a marina and soot burner
