M/Y Suerte S693, from Tankoa Yachts, will make its U.S. debut in November.

Italian boutique shipyard Tankoa Yachts and its global sales and marketing agent, Yacht-Ology, will debut M/Y Suerte S693 to an American audience at the Nov. 3-7 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

The 227-foot yacht will be shown in partnership with Northrop & Johnson in slip 128 at the Las Olas marina.

Designer Francesco Paszkowski and naval architecture professor Vincenzo Ruggiero collaborated with the owner to do the interior design. Guests will be able to board from either the swimming platform, via the lateral tender garages, by the gangway, or the hydraulic ladder.

“I am truly and sincerely emotional about it because this is our first yacht as Tankoa and despite our impressive technical office, the highest level of professionalism of our engineers and our background in yacht building there are always some unforeseen factors that can affect balance at the time of first launching,” Tankoa general manager Edoardo Ratto said in a statement.

“Most builders are still capable to compensate an eventual slight balance issue with all that is left to install onboard, but here we have nothing to correct.”
