Next doors for Tankoa S501 super yacht

This week Tankoa Yachts launched their latest 50-metre superyacht Binta D’Or at their shipyard in Genoa Italy. For this all aluminum superyacht Newthex delivered a complete range of Watertight Next Doors to protect the potentially vulnerable interior spaces and critical systems.


With Tankoa Yachts Newthex has a successful long record of delivering watertight doors and hatches which they implement in their designs. All Newthex Next Doors and Watertight hatches are pressure tested prior to dispatch and can be certified by all major classification societies.


Why Next watertight doors for superyachts?

Interesting to know is that instead of the typical handwheel driven watertight yacht doors, Newthex Next watertight doors are fit with a single handle. In combination with our patented NEXT closing system the Newthex Next watertight hinged door can be operated with one hand instead of two. This benefits the user and saves time in most situations.

  • Next Doors are equipped with pirate- and thief-proof hinges. When the doors are closed the door can not be lifted off or disconnected from the hinges.
  • As an option Next Doors can be equipped with door handles which light up in the dark.
  • The smooth Next Door design reduces the risk to be hooked or to get hurt while passing the door.
