Vanqraft VQ16
Vanqraft VQ16 has Jet Ski’s handlebar.

As a Jet Ski, it is… just super. As a tender it is… really original.

Vanquish Yachts created and presented at the Cannes Yachting Festival the Water Scooter-Yacht combination that no one had ever imagined before.
The Vanqraft VQ16 is a 16′ super jet ski that combines the comfort and luxury of a superyacht tender with the adrenaline and fun of a 200 hp jet ski.

If $90,000 for the basic version or $106,000 for the Veloce version is not a brake, then nothing can stop you: the pilot rides the Vanqraft VQ16 with his Jet Ski’s handlebar, while up to 5 passengers can enjoy a pleasant navigation with all the comforts on the dedicated seats and on the long helm.

Vanqraft VQ16: 200 HP to enjoy the thrill of speeding in comfort and style.

The designers of Vanquish Yachts wanted to have fun, or they thought about the fun of their customers/owners.

The 1.8 litre Yamaha jet engine has the “attributes”: 200 hp for a speed of 40 knots. The Veloce turbocharged version even reaches 50 knots.

If the performance is that of a racing Jet Ski, the look is that of a Vanquish yacht.

The design of the VQ16 is the result of a collaboration between Guido de Groot Design and Studio Delta. The result is a watercraft that is perfectly suited to be used as a tender.

In fact, the jet drive is built flat into the hull, so that the VQ16 can be easily housed in the yacht’s tender garage.
