VQ Yachts is pleased to announce a new partnership with the leading Dutch investment company TransEquity Network.
The agreement will enable us to take our growing success in the market for bespoke driver’s boats to the next level, increasing our financial, commercial and management capacity. VQ Yachts director Tom Steentjes will remain firmly at the helm of the yard that he founded in 2013 as we further expand our range and client base in Europe, the Americas and Asia.
This exciting new partnership comes on the heels of impressive growth in terms of sales and brand recognition for VQ Yachts. We have already built our all-aluminium speed machines for demanding individuals in many European sailing hotspots, with the Balearic Islands being a particular favourite haunt of VQ yacht owners. Since our successful debut at last year’s Fort Lauderdale show, we have taken a significant number of new orders from clients in the US appreciative of the unique combination of awesome agility, supreme comfort and pure Dutch quality on offer. Our recent participation in the Miami show confirmed our growing presence stateside.
TransEquity Network is based in the Netherlands and focuses on mid-sized companies with significant growth potential. Its emphasis on providing hands-on support will facilitate the ongoing growth of VQ Yachts as a company.
“We recognised that we could use some extra capacity in terms of commercial and overall management,” explains Tom. “Additional investment is always useful too and will allow my team to focus on further optimising our designs, technology and production. Building spectacular sports boats is what we do best, and having the room to concentrate on customising each one to the requirements of individual clients is what inspires me most.”
VQ Yachts currently builds boats between five and twenty metres, and this new partnership will enable us to further develop our unique proposition and expand into larger motoryachts. There is clear demand from the market for such a move and now we can take the vision forward with TransEquity, which has a rich experience in enabling the growth of ambitious brands with a first-class product such as ours.
