2012 Motor Yacht of the Year: Tango Spotted Cruising in San Diego Waters

2012 Motor Yacht of the Year: Tango Spotted Cruising in San Diego Waters

If you were hanging around the San Diego Bay this past Saturday (perhaps sunbathing on the deck of your newest catamaran), you may have noticed Tango, 2012's Motor Yacht of the Year, cruising around. Built in 2011 by Feadship, this impressive superyacht is one of the top ranked vessels in the world and spotting her 254-foot frame was amazing.

With four engines, she's able to get to 22 knots, which is pretty neat considering her size. She also has a pretty neat interior style and layout, which was designed by Eidsgaard Design, and can accommodate 12 guests on the main deck. The private owner's deck is kept separate, featuring its own aft seating area, a full-beam stateroom and a study. Speaking of the owner, we're not entirely sure who the lucky person is. Andrei Skoch has been thrown around, but he actually owns Madame Gu — which we suppose could look similar to Tango if one closes an eye and squints the other.


  • The Volpe is just one-metre wide and 1.5 metres tall
  • It can be charged at your desk
  • There's not much luggage space

Fed up of cramming into the lift at work in the morning?

Soon you’ll be able to drive into it instead – because the world’s smallest eco car is about to go on sale and it’s tiny enough to fit into office elevators.

The ‘Volpe’ is just one-metre wide, 1.5 metres tall, weighs just 350kg and can squeeze into the smallest of gaps, which means the commute to work can continue right up to the office, where the car can be charged at your desk.

Size matters: The commute to work can continue all the way to your desk with the Volpe

Proud: The Volpe designers with their tiny creation, which goes on sale next year for £5,600

Long-distance cruising isn’t really an option, though, since it only has a top speed of 30mph – and there isn’t much room for luggage.
