Exclusiva Design enjoys the strongest reputation for mastering the latest techniques and materials and occupies hundreds of artisans who mostly work on Exclusiva’s projects, delivering uniqueness and exclusivity.
Often involved in the most complicated and challenging projects, but also the most confidentials, Exclusiva had in mind to enter the ultra-luxury super-yacht market. Representing the best Italy can offer, Fabio Mazzeo and Vito Taddei, founders of the company, conducted long due diligences and investigations on which shipyard could best materialize their project and build it to unparalleled quality. As a result of their investigations, they ended up choosing Tankoa Yachts to be the builder of PROGETTO BOLIDE, a 72-meter radical luxury superyacht design which exteriors and interiors are the direct result of Exclusiva’s limitless and unique experience.
According to Design Director Fabio Mazzeo, only the "boutique shipyard" concept Tankoa elevated to the level of culture, could answer Exclusiva’s expectation. Mazzeo recently commented: “We’ve been visiting many shipyards in the past year as we spent several months creating our ideal yacht design and our wish was to keep cultivating the Italian heritage also in the building. The approach, flexibility and processes we found at Tankoa are simply unique. Tankoa having no will to run after big production numbers, the guys there are just delivering superior quality as a direct result of their passion. With this in mind, we felt Tankoa was the perfect fit for our Progetto Bolide. Not only did we recognize Tankoa the ideal partner for what we have in mind to achieve, our technical consultant remitted us analysis of the performances of the Tankoa’s 72-meter technical platform that have no equivalent in the sector. And this has also been a major factor in our decision to go with Tankoa”.

On the Tankoa Yachts side, Euro Contenti, the CEO of the company declared “I’ve been building yachts for over 40 years and during my tenure at Baglietto, I launched some extraordinary yachts such as Blue Ice which lines are turning heads still today. When we first met with the Exclusiva people, we were all wondering about what sort of project they were willing to submit us with as we all know designing a building or even the highest luxury mansion has nothing to do with a boat. Surprisingly, they did not submit us with a design but with a long list of what they considered the modern yacht of tomorrow should come with, and could not be found on the market today. From there, and only after multiple meetings with our technical office, they came up with a design. And they stuck to their promises of drawing a yacht that resembles no other, offers a stunning layout and followed all our technical requirements. No question, we are excited about having been chosen by such respected firm to build their design!”
