VQ115 Veloce well on track
Production is continuing at a rapid pace on the largest Vanquish built to date as we head towards the delivery date of spring 2023. This 35-metre masterpiece is currently in the paint shop being given her livery by our coating experts. Next in line to make their mark on VQ history by working on the launch model VQ115 Veloce will be our interior craftsmen. They will start fitting and finishing the very latest changes that the design team have implemented with the owners to ensure a glamorous interior that matches their preferences in every respect.
And then will come perhaps the most exciting moment of the whole project as we take the completed superyacht out on the water for her first test drive. This is always a big deal with any build so imagine how everyone will feel when they see whether the target has been met – to create the world’s fastest aluminium yacht over 30 metres with ‘normal’ diesel engines (i.e. non-turbine-driven). Will the three MTU-Rolls-Royce 2650s and the surface drives power the VQ115 Veloce to an exceptional speed of 50 miles? Watch this space!
Inspired by the experience and fresh ideas of a repeat client, the VQ115 Veloce will be a remarkable tri-deck powerboat in many other ways too. Deflectors in the bottom shell will direct the spray aft to ensure optimal performance and major efficiency at top speeds. Two gyro stabilisers will further enhance comfort levels on this smart blend of a race boat and luxury yacht. She has two garages carrying a VQ16 and a VQ11, an enormous capacity for outdoor fun along with accommodations for up to eight guests and four crew.
With three orders already in and talks at an advanced stage with various other potential owners, the VQ115 is set to change the way speed freaks see powerboats in this size. Frankly, we can’t wait to let you see the first model on the water… Not long now!
