Vanquish Yachts is building a remarkable tri-deck powerboat that aims to be the world’s fastest aluminum superyacht. The VQ115 Veloce is a 35-metre motoryacht that incorporates the largest engines possible – a trio of MTU-Rolls-Royce 2650s. Together with surface drives, this setup will power the yacht to an exceptional speed of 50+ knots.
The Netherlands-based Studio Delta created the naval architecture of a hull that features deflectors in the bottom shell to direct the spray aft. It resulted in optimal comfort and performance levels and a significant efficiency increase at top speeds.
Designer Guido de Groot and his team were responsible for the extrior design. The engines will be placed in a trapezium shape with the middle engine forward. An impressive range of up to 600 nm will be possible when running on one or two engines, with an extra fuel tank available for cruising at lower speeds.
The yacht features enough space aft for a large tender bay that will house a VQ16. This mighty craft will be launched by a dedicated tender system, while a multifunctional hydraulic platform will provide easy access to and from the water via a passerelle and swimming ladder. Another tender in the form of a VQ11 waterscooter will be housed in a second garage on the starboard side. This area will have a live bait tank, paddleboards, sea bobs and other toys.
The new VQ115 Veloce will have the expansive foredeck with a large seating area for lounging and dining. There will be the option to lift up the sun beds and create a saltwater jacuzzi.
The flybridge has been superbly integrated within a distinctive exterior profile.
The interior is characterized by a futuristic style. The main deck saloon will feature movable furniture to provide flexibility. There will be an office space, a neat pantry with its own cocktail bar, and a day head to keep the lower deck private. Stairs ascend to the sport flybridge above while the aft door opens fully to create a unified space with the aft deck.
The lower deck features a more extensive galley and a U-shaped seating/dining area in a country kitchen style. Accommodations include a full-beam master suite, a VIP and a guest cabin, all with their own bathrooms. A dedicated media room features a large television, a high-end sound system plus two Pullmans that bring the potential sleeping capacity to eight. There are also berths for four crew members.
This potentially record-breaking powerboat is due to be delivered in the Hamptons in 2022.
