Designed in collaboration with the renowned Guido de Groot, Studio Delta and Wester Naval Architecture, the 14.6-metre VQ48 tender from Dutch brand Vanquish Yachts has an aesthetic that will certainly appeal to car lovers around the world. With the first two in the series delivered last summer to happy customers in both St Tropez and Ibiza, the company states that the introduction of the model has been an unprecedented success - and it’s not difficult to see why.

The development of the VQ48 came after careful consultation with current Vanquish owners, who concluded that what they were really looking for was a blend of the best features of the brand’s VQ43 and VQ50 models. Some of the key features noted were a smaller foredeck version of the VQ50’s dinette and the popular sun beds found on the VQ43. Other design highlights are the two specially developed helm seats, a large lounge sofa and an ingenious convertible top which dispenses with the traditional tubes and braces normally seen on biminis.

VQ48 owners can make optimal use of the enormous flexibility offered by Vanquish Yachts, allowing each and every client to create something in aluminium that truly suits their particular idea of boating pleasure. From day one, space for socialising and parties has been central to the design of the VQ48, with 19 seating places as standard. This will make this particular VQ48 a practical and much loved charter boat for owners.

As with all Vanquish models, the VQ48 sets itself apart through its low weight, leading to exceptional manoeuvrability, super-fast acceleration, low fuel consumption and an impressive top speed of well over 40 knots. The model is also available in a VQ48 Veloce version, with an even more impressive top speed exceeding 50 knots.
