Vanquish launches first VQ54 complete with garage and Williams tender

The door of the garage opens aft to facilitate easy departure and docking, while a powerful winch ensures easy handling. Trips to the beach club are a breeze, as is exploring shallow bays and inlets. In addition, there is also space on the VQ54 for diving equipment and other water toys.

Despite all the pleasures to be had away from the mothership, however, those on board the VQ54 may take some convincing to leave behind the pleasures of this ultimate party boat. A wealth of open deck space accommodates up to 20 people in three different socialising areas. The interior includes a spacious bathroom with toilet, indoor dining and two comfortable berths. A large galley features a refrigerator and a wine cooler, ensuring that all the facilities for wining and dining are met.

Under its bonnet the VQ54 is powered by MAN i6-800 in-line six-cylinder engines, winners of the international Red Dot award 2016 for excellent design.To make the most of the horsepower available, the yacht is fitted with surface drives, giving a top speed of 45 knots. A real joy to drive, with incredible agility and lightning-fast acceleration, the VQ54 is exceptionally dry both at low speeds and when planing, including in rough seas and high winds. This is a boat that offers for every form of comfort A Veloce version is also available for these looking to up the ante further and hit the 50 knot mark.

Extra cabins and more

The VQ54 initially took the highly successful VQ48 as its inspiration, using the extra length and beam to provide more options for the type of extreme customisation that Vanquish owners admire. Setting a new benchmark for unrivalled fun on the water, it is designed by Guido de Groot with naval architecture by Studio Delta. A second model is close to completion and will be delivered soon to her owner in Barbados.

Inspired by the warm market reception for the VQ54, an additional design option has now been developed which contains more interior facilities. These include an extra cabin with standing height, making this type of VQ54 exceptionally suitable for overnight adventures with a family of four or two couples. The extra volume has in part been created by adding a large open galley on the deck, offering a wide range of options for al fresco cooking.

Captured on film

To mark the launch of this special powerboat, Vanquish Yachts has released a spectacular new movie. Deliberately different to other films in the yachting industry, the movie encapsulates how this unique Dutch brand is capturing the minds and hearts of individualist clients the world over.
