New Model: Vanquish VQ58 Hardtop

Vanquish has launched the new VQ58 Hardtop, a sport yacht that expresses the Dutch builder philosophy of custom made to order build sport yachts. Two have already been delivered to Sag Harbor in the US and Estonia, three more are being built and a new order has been placed for 2020 delivery.  That makes a total of six VQ58 to be located somewhere near you in the the coming year.  The VQ58 is based on an observation that owners are looking for genuinely new and exciting designs, and the idea of every unit being made with customization in mind. VQ Yachts is known for speaking to visionaries, and a design language definitely not for everyone, and this new VQ 58 model is an excellent illustration of that fact.  Designed in partnership with Guido de Groot, the VQ58 has that distinctive VQ Yachts look and feel, and the trademark customization in terms of things like layout, structure and engines. It is available in an open version or with wheelhouse or T-top, and can be built with one or two garages at the stern and/or as a side bay, making it perfect for multiple toys and tenders. The standard top speed is around 38 knots, accelerating up to 50 in the Veloce configuration.
