All aboard the fun machine.

First introduced as a revolutionary take on tenders in 2015, you'll now find the VQ16 Sports Line also being used the world over as a fantastic way to tow toys as well as the ultimate water scooter. Stand at the helm of this spacious, five-metre-long beauty and enjoy the thrill of a genuinely unique craft in the company of up to five guests.

Surpassing expectations.

The product of in-depth market research and discussions with clients, the VQ16 Sports Line combines excellent manoeuvrability, 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 for intrepid owners and can be adapted to your personal tastes.

Hear the roar.

The feel behind the wheel of a VQ16 is the same as in a beefy driver’s car. Its power, manoeuvrability and comfort rest on sturdy next-generation technology and state-of-the-art Dutch workmanship. 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. What will you use your VQ16 Sports Line for?

I felt once more how simple and frugal a thing is happiness: a glass of wine, a roast chestnut, a wretched little brazier, the sound of the sea. Nothing else.

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 colour to match that of the mother ship when used as a tender. Each VQ16 is entirely hand-made with great precision and an eye for detail. 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.
