Agile and sporty, a new walkaround laden with promise comes to market: it is the Virtue V10, a vessel (9.95 m) high performance capable of gliding up to 50 knots. The Virtue V10 is cabin cruiser and provided in both open and hardtop versions. In terms of motorization, it is available with either a gasoline outboard (single or dual) or a 100% electric Evoy outboard. All this, in compact dimensions (9.95 x 2.9 m), a detail that also makes it ideal for ports and marinas, respecting the average size and allowing cheaper berths.

Packed with solutions designed for relaxation, this new boat from Virtue Yachts on deck offers two sunbathing areas and folding bulwarks. It also boasts a Petestep hull, a technology that can define water lines that reduce friction by up to 30 percent and facilitate acceleration by 20-50 percent. This has positive aspects with both electric and endothermic motor since it improves the overall efficiency of the hull, with advantages also in term

Exterior

The V10 focuses on a modern look with minimal lines with an “unbalance” in space management in favor of the stern. The windshield, in fact, is very advanced. The hard top version includes a solar paneling on the roof to provide additional energy support on board.

Shifting attention to the spaces on board, the walkaround layout immediately emerges, with a center console, covered by hard top in the version presented here. Aft, outside the outboards, we find a swim platform for broadside, complete with a swim ladder. There is a convivial area in the cockpit that is particularly versatile. Here there are double sofas facing a central table that can be used for lunches or dinners. You can also lower the table and fold down the backrests, resulting in a sunbathing lounge.

Also in the cockpit, folding bulwarks provide no small amount of space, while a kitchen cabinet (sandwiched between the lounge and wheelhouse), provides everything needed for meals and appetizers. Just beyond, we find the command console, served by dual racing-style seats that can be used while standing. From here you descend below deck.

Finally, a second lounge area, carved out above the deckhouse extension, finds its place in the bow. Here, a sundeck with a backrest provides a relaxing corner overlooking the sea, but it also allows the volume of the cabin below to be increased, which can be given light or air via a skylight hidden under the center cushion.

Just below deck, we find a cabin set up for two people and complete with a double bed, separate full toilet (toilet and shower) and storage lockers. Optionally, an air conditioner system is also available.

Hull, propulsion and performance

Turning to the ‘motorization’ and performance front, the Virtue V10 turns out to be a promising boat, designed, among many other things, to also be full electric, with integrated solar panels to provide extra power. The hull design is designed to minimize any drag, maximizing thrust efficiency and hull maneuverability, even when gliding. The Petestep technology with which the fairing is developed aims to reduce power consumption by up to 35 percent, allowing even with smaller engines a good riding experience.

Depending on the engines selected, the V10 reaches a maximum speed of more than 50 knots and a cruising speed of between 20 and 40 knots. Depending on your needs, you can choose between a single 300-hp outboard (standard version) or two 250-hp outboards in the V10 R version. In order to meet certain standards, a version with two Mercury 150 horsepower is also planned, developed specifically to meet Lake Constance BSO II certificates.

Finally, the V10 Next version is powered by Evoy electric outboards for a total thrust of about 300 horsepower, to which up to two batteries can be added. A single engine, equipped with a single battery, provides a range of as much as 70 kilometers at a cruising speed of 25 knots. Regardless of the version, there is a bow thruster as standard.
