Tankoa Yachts unveils design of the superyacht T680 Fenice

Created in the wake of Tankoa Yachts’ 50-metre series and dedicated to Venice’s famous opera house, the 68-metre FENICE is based on a new naval platform and a sleek, dynamic exterior design by Enrico Gobbi of Team for Design, a Venice-based studio.

“With Enrico we understood each other immediately and it was a pleasure to develop this project together,” explains Giuseppe Mazza, Tankoa’s Sales and Marketing Manager. “With the T680 we continue to expand Tankoa’s yacht range to offer the market an increasingly rich choice of unique designs. Like the place from which it takes its name, the T680 FENICE is a triumph of balance, rhythm and grace.”

The flow of circulation on board the T680 FENICE is designed to make the transition between interior and exterior as smooth and natural as possible. The exterior lines are inspired by automotive and aeronautical design.

The collaboration with Enrico Gobbi

“This new project is the result of our desire to be recognised for what we are: a boutique shipyard offering a range of unique yachts designed by the best designers,” said Eva Orsi, President of Tankoa. “We are proud of this collaboration with Enrico Gobbi, which highlights the unmistakable style, quality, beauty and know-how that allow us to make our clients’ dreams come true.”

“From the first moment I started sharing my ideas with Tankoa, I knew I was in the right place with the right people. This is a project characterised by exclusive details that only a ’boutique’ yard like Tankoa can enhance,” said Enrico Gobbi, Team of Design CEO. “I believe that superyacht projects of this size should be able to stand out: born from a blank sheet of paper, developed and built to the highest standards of quality that Tankoa has already proven itself capable of.”

Aboard the T680 Phoenix

The aft lounge boasts 100 square metres: this multi-level beach club includes an infinity pool, gym, spa and lounge.

A glazed portion of the pool integrated into the centre of the deck leads guests directly onto a sheltered terrace before entering the beach club proper. Folding terraces on either side of the hull increase the interior area and relationship with the sea, and twin staircases connect the main deck to the aft platform.

The main saloon is one with a terrace and was designed by the shipyard as a reception area on board with floor-to-ceiling windows with panoramic views. Forward of the main saloon is two VIP suites and four guest cabins with en-suite bathrooms that take light from the large windows.
The lower deck is dedicated to accommodation and crew services, including a pro-spec galley, a medical room and a garage with a side launch for the tender.

A unique design stands out on the upper deck: the open aft deck transforms into a circular dining area, which can be closed or semi-opened thanks to full-height sliding glass doors. This dining area is connected to the sky lounge, which features side balconies extending out to the sea.

Master cabin

The 90-square-metre master cabin features floor-to-ceiling windows offering 270-degree panoramic views. With a large walk-in wardrobe and a lavish marble bathroom, the suite has direct access to a private foredeck with sundeck and a glass-enclosed Jacuzzi. This deck area doubles as a touch-and-go helipad.
