New Model: Vanquish VQ48

Vanquish new VQ48 is the current flagship for the open sports boat line from this Dutch builder, made famous for the capacity to keep passengers dry at all times: high and low speeds, quiet and rough seas, strong or light winds. The Guido de Groot design merges features from previous success stories like a smaller fore-deck version of the dinette from the VQ50 and the sun beds on the VQ43. Other highlights include two specially developed helm seats, a large lounge settee and an intelligent convertible top with a clever bimini solution.  The Vanquish VQ48 is powered by twin Cummins 600hp and or optional 715hp choice, with this latest option delivering speeds of over forty knots.
