The first Vanqraft VQ16 has been delivered to an existing Vanquish Yachts customer, who owns one the new 48-foot VQ48 Dual Console sports yacht.
“The owner is not alone in saying that this unique crossover configuration has exceeded all expectations since she arrived on the White Island (Ibiza) last week,” said Vanquish Yachts in a media release.
This first tender/water scooter crossover is grey, to match the owner’s VQ48.
“The experiences of the past week on the Vanqraft VQ16 in Ibiza have make crystal clear that the term ‘best of both worlds’ truly does apply to this innovative crossover between a water scooter and a tender,” stated Vanquish.
Vanquish says that five other models are at various stages of construction ready for delivery this summer, and a further five Vanqraft VQ16 have been ordered.
A Veloce version capable of roaring through the 50-knot mark is also available for those who can never get enough speed.
