Vanquish Yachts reveals 55 knot VQ90 Veloce superyacht concept
by Chris Jefferies
Dutch yard Vanquish Yachts has revealed the VQ90 Veloce concept, which, if built, would be one of the ten fastest superyachts in the world.
Designed to be fitted with three MTU 16V 2000 engines and Arneson surface drives, the 27.4 metre streamlined deep-vee hull design would be capable of a top speed of more than 55 knots.
Exterior styling by Guido de Groot and his team echoes the Vanquish VQ48 day boat, with its sharp lines and reversed-angled prow.
The deck layout is largely open plan, leaving plenty of space for al fresco dining, including a foredeck seating area. Meanwhile, the panorama hardtop comes with a sliding sunroof.
Back aft, a large transom garage should be able to swallow up a jet ski and tender side-by-side.
Designed with entertaining firmly in mind, the Vanquish VQ90 Veloce will come with a Brian’s Custom Audio sound system and a galley designed by top chef René Schudel.
A choice of four interior layouts will be made available, including an option for a master suite spanning the whole 7.2 metre beam. As a result, the VQ90 will accommodate up to ten guests across five cabins.
Vanquish Yachts was keen to stress the high level of customisation available to owners and promised “a wide range of innovations that reflect the trailblazing mentality of Vanquish Yachts owner Tom Steentjes”.
