New Launch: Vanquish VQ80 SF

A custom order which was signed in the end of 2020 the Vanquish VQ80 SF is a sport-yacht-fish cross over, like we never have seen before.  Designed as all Vanquish by Guido de Groot with its main duty to be a chase yacht for the Heesen 60-metre superyacht hull number YN19995 Project SkyFall which launched the first half of 2023, the VQ80 SF introduces something new for Vanquish and to the conservative sea-fishing world. The VQ80 Sportsfish might be the young 2012 founded semi-custom-production Vanquish most substantive customization as yet, taking the Dutch builder away from its usual sport yacht zone into that of a hybrid between a luxurious sportfish and a sport-performance-yacht.  The customization though does not deviate Vanquish from its De Groot futuristic lines and the VQ80 SF is a sports yacht first with sportfishing features later; like the tower and free aft cockpit with central high rise aft looking mezzanine. Important to note the yacht features shine through, integrated bathing platform aft, two side opening balconies, lower helm station, and full walk around deck.  Down below the Vanquish VQ80 SF offers a three double cabins layout with an owners suite forward, and a crew cabin for two.  Performance? If competing in a sports fishing tournament the VQ80 SF might actually take first for speed, with twin Cats 2400hp and surface drive propulsion giving a 52 knots performance.
