While the VQ45 has been one of the most successful designs in the history of VQ Yachts, with many different bespoke versions made, we still come across clients who devise exciting new ways to up the ante.
The latest example of this is a bespoke VQ45 T-Top which is being especially designed as a chase boat for the owner of a Heesen superyacht currently under construction, the 55-metre Solemates. She will be fitted with various features that makes boarding and alighting from alongside or aft of the yacht a breeze, including a dedicated side door.
The true VQ custom style
This striking new VQ45 will have the same livery of snow white with medium grey accents as her mothership, and the interior will also have materials and a colour scheme to match those found onboard Solemates. The layout is being specially adapted so passengers can easily walk around the boat without any hindrance from the seating.
And there’s more. In true VQ custom style we’ll be fitting an integrated electric sunscreen, a hydraulic swim ladder, Seakeeper 6 for zero speed stabilisation, Active Ride control from Humphree and 2 x IPS600 engines for a top speed up to 38 knots. The VQ45 T-Top will also of course feature classic VQ characteristics such as a high fun factor and good navigation in heavy seas and a joystick with automatic position control ( DPS ) that makes mooring and manoeuvring a pleasure. The rest of the specifications are the same as a regular VQ45, which you can read more about here.
