Before stumbling upon these marvelously designed Dutch yachts the first thing that came to mind when we heard the word “Vanquish” was Aston Martin. The crème de la crème of road-going Grand Tourers. Supremely engineered, delightful to look at, and pleasant to sit in. Whether by pure coincidence or inconspicuously intentional the VQ48 from Vanquish Yachts seems to be the Oceananic interpretation of what the Aston Martin Vanquish is to the Earth’s roads. Beauty meets function meets superlative execution, both inside and out. And of course there’s no shortage of power on this vessel. With optional twin 715HP engines for a total output of 1,430 horsepower (also known as the “Veloce” version), you’re sure to tour the seas, bays, and rivers of choice in speed and comfort. At nearly 50 feet long with generous amounts of power and deluxe levels of comfort the VQ48 is aptly suitable for a day out on the bay or exploring new waters. Photos via Vanquish Yachts.
