Chartering a superyacht is arguably the ultimate luxury ocean experience. Yet, with so many yachts to choose from (the most established yacht brokerage companies have dozens of available boats at least 200 feet in length), and with the cost of a week-long charter typically running at least $400,000, there’s plenty of pressure to do it right. Fortunately, the 236-foot Tankoa-built Solo has just entered the charter market, and the sleek Italian yacht offers something for everyone.
Launched in 2018, Solo is only the third Tankoa yacht ever available for charter, following Suerte (built in 2015) and Vertige (built in 2017). Like its predecessors, Solo sports a Franceso Paszkowski design, though its contemporary interior delivers a touch more modernity than previous builds.
The yacht’s oversized beach club has the ideal relaxation area at water level and is complete with a lounge, bar, sauna, Hamman, and fitness room. Free-flowing indoor-outdoor spaces include an upper deck salon, punctuated by a baby grand piano and a plethora of entertainment options, and an owner’s deck, which delivers panoramic views and a private studio and terrace outfitted with a hot tub.
Although Solo offers no shortage of accoutrements dedicated to comfort, entertainment, and fun (including a well-equipped garage full of toys and tenders), the yacht also appeals to those who place a premium on protecting the environment. With its main engines equipped with Eco Spray SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) and the entire mechanical operation equipped with a CO2 monitoring system that allows the captain to track emissions relative to speed, Solo is one of the world’s most ecofriendly superyachts.
