Vanquish Superyachts Signs Order For First VQ115

27 October 2020• Written by Holly Overton

Vanquish Superyachts has signed an order for the first 35 metre VQ115 Veloce.

The high-performance motor yacht has been commissioned by a repeat client and is set to be one of the fastest aluminium superyachts on the water thanks to a trio of MTU-Rolls-Royce 2600s engines delivering an eye-watering top speed of 53 knots.

A sporty exterior featuring a slender hull and integrated flybridge comes courtesy of Guido de Groot while interior renderings still remain under wraps. The interior layout, however, will feature a flexible main saloon with freestanding furniture that can be moved as required and accommodation for up to eight guests split between a master suite, VIP and guest cabin. There's a dedicated media room for quieter evenings spent on board which doubles as a fourth cabin thanks to two Pullman berths.

The client wanted a yacht for entertaining large groups on board so its exterior decks are geared towards open social spaces. A large foredeck plays host to lounge and al fresco dining area with a saltwater Jacuzzi hidden beneath the sunbeds, while a flybridge features a second helm station and a spot for sunbathing.

Despite its hefty engines, the first VQ115 leaves plenty of space for a tender bay aft which will house a VQ16 with a hydraulic platform for easy launch and recovery. A second garage on the starboard side will house a VQ11 water scooter and double as a leisure area complete with a bait tank, paddleboards, SeaBobs and other toys.

The VQ115 will join the in-build VQ80 Sportfish which began construction earlier this year. Delivery of the first VQ115 is slated for June 2022 with two new models going into production soon, according to the yard.
