Vanquish Yachts in the Netherlands has developed a new model in its sports boat range specifically for the US market. The first VQ46 Dual Console is being built at the Vanquish facility in Holland, and will be ready in time for the 2016 season.
According to a Vanquish statement, the VQ46DC concept stands out from anything remotely equivalent in this size range. The 46ft cruiser can reach top speeds 63mph with three 400hp Mercury Verado R outboards, its knife-like bow allowing the yacht to cut through the waves with ease. A deep walkaround ensures freedom of movement for passengers, while the layout provides seating for 12 to 14 people and three sunbathing spots.
The comfort levels have also been optimised even further on the VQ46 Dual Console. The interior comprises a galley with sink and refrigerator, as well as a spacious bathroom with toilet and shower. The wide lounge area for six to eight people on the foredeck is flanked by a good-sized galley, while the interior also comprises a well-appointed cabin for two to three people plus a head with shower.
In addition to day trips with larger groups, this sport cruiser can also be used as a tender for superyachts.
Like all Vanquish boats, future versions of the VQ46 Dual Console model will be fully customisable, allowing the yard to install inboard (diesel or petrol) engines with various drive systems as required.
