Dutch boatbuilder has created an open and closed version of its new model VQ75 Veloce. Also new from Vanquish is the Vanqraft 16. Unlike previous aluminium versions, new models will be built in composite and polyester.
Vanquish Yachts in the Netherlands has released the designs of VQ75 Veloce, a new 23m powerboat with a beam of 6.5m and fully customisable. “It has plenty of layout options as well as several possibilities in terms of motorisation,” the Dutch yard says.
VQ75 Veloce builds on the streamlined shape of the recently launched VQ48s and VQ50. The yacht is available both as an open dayboat and as a closed version, with a large transparent sunroof that opens all the way.
In addition to the areas to socialise, sunbathe or relax, the VQ75 Veloce offers the option to stay on board for longer periods thanks to the addition of an owner, VIP and two guest cabins or a crew cabin.
Vanquish says this model bridges the gap between the VQ48/VQ50 and the VQ90 design, which was unveiled earlier this year.
A key difference with the VQ90, however, is that the VQ75 Veloce can easily be sailed by just two people. If a crew cabin is added and the galley is separated from the guests’ quarters, the boat becomes well suited to chartering. The flexible layout can even be arranged in a way that allows space for a garage to house a VQ16 water scooter.
The VQ75 Veloce comes with surface drives which Vanquish says guarantee a top speed of a 50ks, and “makes it one of the fastest motoryachts in its category”.
A non-Veloce version of the VQ75 is also available with a less powerful engine configuration, still offering a top speed of around 40ks.
The VQ75 Veloce features a low resistance, easily driven hull design for convenient acceleration. The hull is a further development on the VQ48, an open sports boat made famous by its unerring capacity to keep passengers dry at all times: high and low speeds, quiet and rough seas, strong or light winds.
Vanquish says the VQ75 will also benefit from the enormous attention paid to noise insulation. “The stiff construction of the hull and absence of contact between the interior and the hull thanks to the insulation will guarantee a very comfortable stay on board.”
The latest stabilizer technology is an option that allows stability and comfort to be optimised even at anchor.
In addition, Vanquish Yachts has revealed it has signed four orders for its water scooter Vanqraft 16.
The unit has been revamped with a new design and construction material. Unlike previous aluminium versions, these new models will be built in composite and polyester.
Vanqraft 16, a crossover between a superyacht tender and a water scooter, results from a close collaboration between the Dutch boatbuilder and with Guido de Groot Design and the naval architects at Studio Delta.
While the helmsman feels the power at the steering station, there is room for five other guests.
The Vanqraft 16 is driven by a 200hp Yamaha 1.8 L engine with jet propulsion. “It can easily achieve 40ks and can sail in reverse,” the builder explains.
The Vanqraft 16 is also now available in an even faster Veloce version, offering speeds of well over 50ks.
