VQ40 makes its mark in US

The new VQ40, available with either outboard or inboard engines, is already turning out to be a great success in the US. This remarkable new yacht blends premium Dutch artisanship, a superb exterior profile by Guido de Groot and a sleek stepped hull by award-winning naval architect Bakewell-White that offers less resistance and a lower drag. Designed for men who love fast cars, this true driver’s boat ensures unrivalled acceleration and excellent manoeuvrability, resulting in the smoothest wave-riding experience. Production is currently going strong and the first VQ40s will be delivered to the US and various countries in the Mediterranean this summer. Click here for a production video.

Up to 16 people

The layout of the VQ40 revolves around a wealth of space, with seats and loungers for 16 people and plenty of room to walk around safely and comfortably. In addition, the boat is fitted with a transparent T-Top that lets in air but not heat. There are lounging areas fore and aft, each furnished with extremely comfortable and high-quality cushions. Behind the driver and co-pilot seats is a smart outdoor-galley area, complete with an electric grill, Corian countertop, sink, wine cooler/fridge and/or an optional icemaker, and a storage locker for cutlery, plates and glassware. Below decks is a queen bed, shower and toilet. Click here for some images of the interior.

60+ knots

Super powerful and versatile even by our standards, the VQ40 comes with a choice of engines and top speeds ranging from 35 to 60+ knots. The standard installation is for 2x 225 hp Mercury Verado outboards, giving a top speed of 35 knots. The standard inboard propulsion setup is twin 320 hp Volvo D4 diesels with DPI drives, or you can go for two 440 hp Volvo D6 inboard diesels.

The VQ40 Veloce version is equipped with 3 x 450 hp Mercury Verados, giving a top speed of 60+ knots. Regardless of which installation you choose, you’ll truly feel the power when you take your place in one of the co-pilot seats.
