Every once in a while, we come across a yacht that is differentiated within the industry from the run-of-mill selection of yachts currently available. This Tango 60 is one of those yachts…she is truly one-of-a-kind in every sense of the meaning.
Her styling is truly timeless, with sleek lines flowing with a rakish flare from her expansive foredeck back to the fully enclosed aft deck. Both sidedecks begin amidships at the port and starboard pilothouse doors, and run forward. (No sidedecks aft means her salon is huge!) The sidedecks are wide and comfortable with high stainless railings leading all the way to the especially wide bow pulpit. The foredeck is appointed with a huge cushioned sunpad.
Once you step inside the port or starboard door, you’ll be standing in the full beam pilot house with full controls and electronics off to port side. The visibility forward from this vantage point is remarkably good, and the controls and gauges are laid out nicely. Aft will lead you into the main living space, while a companionway forward leads to living quarters.
Stepping aft, immediately you’ll notice the expansive living space. The first thing you’ll notice is the use of oaks, mahogany and cedar throughout. The woodwork craftsmanship is flawless! Having no sidedecks aft means the Tango utilizes all of her 17’6” beam from this point aft. Walking aft, you’ll pass through the dining area set up on starboard side, while her nicely equipped galley is to port. The galley has a pass through leading to a full sized bar for entertaining your guests. In lieu of an open aft deck, this Tango was built with the fully-enclosed aft deck, extending the full beam main salon to a huge 18-feet long. Wrap around lounge seating set all the way aft allows for full utilization of this space.
Steps to starboard lead down to the private owner’s suite to aft. Stepping into the full beam aft cabin, you’ll feel as though you are in a hotel suite. With centerline queen berth, there is plenty of room to either side and is fitted with plenty of storage and full length hanging lockers. The master head is very well appointed with a large vanity, a huge shower stall to one side and a full-size Jacuzzi tub opposite.
Back up the steps, through the main salon passing through the pilot house you’ll step down to the forward cabins. All the way forward is the VIP guest cabin, also with a centerline queen berth with lots of storage for personal belongings, and its own private head, fitted with vanity and full shower stall.
Continue aft to port you’ll find the third stateroom configured with two twin berths and its own head with shower stall. Further aft is the fourth stateroom / crew’s quarters with bunked singles and its own head. In the hallway, tucked neatly into a closet is a stacked washer and dryer. Continuing aft, you’ll find the engine room companion way, sealed off from the living quarters by a fireproof door.
The engine room is, well, an engine room! Full stand up room throughout the full beam, twelve foot deep area, offers complete walk-around access to each of the massive 8V92’s, and easy access to all other systems. Of course the engine room is protected from fire by the Halon automatic fire system. This engine room is impressive not only by its shear size, but also by the way it has been kept.
Back in the main salon, just behind the helm area of the pilot house is set of steps leading up to the flybridge area. To starboard is the helm, with full controls…the visibility from this point is great. Looking aft, there is seating for a small crowd up here…the bridge is every bit of twenty feet long, leading all the way to the stern. Your guests will love it up here as they relax and bask in the open air.
This yacht has been under the care and management of the second owner since 1996. She was purchased in Florida and brought up to her home on the upper Chesapeake. The current owner tells us she handles the blue water “better than a Hatteras…” His current lifestyle change has created an awesome opportunity for you. This is your chance to own a one-of-kind vessel on the Chesapeake, down south, or wherever you voyage to. One thing’s for sure… She will definitely stand out in the crowd wherever she goes!
A sister ship to this one, “Eternity” has been in charter service 2008. Here’s a description of the build process as posted by her owner:
Designed in Argentina by arch. Enrique D. Caruso, the Motor Yacht KB Tango 60 was built with close collaboration of American naval engineers: hull lines, David Napler; mechanical layout, David Butler; electrical project, Enrique Giner; tooling assessment, All Gonzalez. The building was directed by Enrique Caruso and eng. Carlos Maccio.
Fully made using materials of U.S. origin under the regulations of the American Boat and Yacht Council and the U.S.A. Coast Guard.
All her electronic equipment was produced by well-known American Leading Manufacturers. The cabinetry and woodworking of the Tango 60 are natural oak and her designs have great emphasis on the molding and finishing touches.
Her layout offers quarters at two levels: the upper deck, with a salon, a dinette, a galley and a pilot house, with two sliding exit doors. The lower deck has four roomy staterooms, each with its own private bathroom and refrigeration system (A/C).
With dual control station and the flybridge, built in reinforced fiberglass, the hull is constructed entirely of laminated fiberglass in a solid, one piece mold with cedar, plywood, and polyurethane foam reinforcements. Critical zones as chines, transom, engine room's bottom, shafting line, are reinforced to avoid vibration and high stresses from engines.
Deck and superstructure are laminated in sandwich construction with balsa core, obtaining high resistance and lower weight. All parts which belong to the structure are connected with stainless steel bolts.
Bulkheads and flooring are entirely constructed of phenolic plywood of high moisture resistance and lower weight. Main bulkheads are laminated without joints and attached to the gull with fiberglass and then bolted in accordance with classification rules. Divisional bulkheads are also attached to side hull using fiberglass reinforcements. Floors are built of cedar and plywood completely assembled with bronze screws. Bulkhead panels are veneered in oak.
Shafting lines and rudders, main and intermediate struts built in high resistance bronze manganese. 2,5" Aquament 22 stainless steel propeller shafts. Rudders in bronze manganese alloy SAE 430 with high resistance to bending working stresses.
Electrical material and fittings are of American makers and suitable for naval building. Cables can be wicked at temperature rates of 105 degrees centigrade and cross sections are designed for continuous load with safety margin.
