SOLO yacht interior
Margherita Casprini and Francesco Paszkowski Design designed the yacht’s luxurious interior to reflect modernity and masculine features. She can accommodate 12 guests in 6 cabins: a master suite that features a private terrace, two doubles, and two twins.
The crew quarters can sleep 18 crew members. The yacht was designed to be chartered, and the interior design includes large spaces that are multifunctional to accommodate guests enjoying the yacht.
The vessel has some impressive features that include a sky lounge and an aquarium in the main deck living room that is filled with colorful fish.
The aquarium is designed for the water to remain still with the yacht’s movement. The wellness club features a glass-walled gym, a sauna, a hammam spa, and a beauty salon.
There is an infinity pool on the aft deck, and her touch-and-go helipad can be transformed into a dance floor. She also features a beach club that creates a large inside/outside area that doubles as a water sports center with an expansive selection of toys.
The yacht’s exterior was designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design and built by Tankoa Yachts in 2018. Tankoa Yachts is a yacht builder based in Genova, Italy. The exterior of the SOLO yacht is made with a steel hull, an aluminium superstructure, and features teak decks. The exteriors feature underwater lights that illuminate the yacht in the evening.
