I felt once more how simple and frugal happiness is: a glass of wine, a roasted chestnut or the sound of the sea. Nothing else.

Surpassing expectations.

The product of in-depth market research and discussions with clients, the VQ16 Sports Line combines excellent maneuverability, exceptional comfort and first-rate technology. As well as being fantastic as a towing machine, the VQ16 is an awesome piece of kit on which to go out for a spin. It is also perfect as a super-versatile tender: combined with a larger boat from the Vanquish range, this is surely the coolest of combinations.

Hear the roar.

The feel behind the wheel of a VQ16 is the same as in a beefy drivers car. Its power, manoeuvrability and comfort rest on sturdy next-generation technology combined with state-of-the-art Dutch craftmanship. The standard propulsion is a formidable 200 hp Yamaha 1.8 L jet engine which provides no less than 40 knots, and in the Veloce version the VQ16 reaches an astounding 50 knots.

Go bespoke.

The VQ16 Sports Line can be tailored to a broad range of your desires. For instance, you can adapt the interior to various requirements and change the color to match that of the mother ship when used as a tender. Each VQ16 is entirely hand-made with great precision. The result is always very special and reflects your style.

Sharp design.

A true incarnation of the Vanquish spirit, the VQ16 Sports Line features next-generation technology, sharp design by Guido de Groot and meticulous naval architecture by Studio Delta. The jet drive is integrated flat into the hull, making it ideal as a tender, but the craft is comfortable and fast enough to provide a perfect base for a fun day of watersports out on the water.
