Video: Vanquish Yachts Builds Yamaha-Based Vanqraft VQ16 Luxo PWC


If you’ve never heard of Vanquish Yachts before, you will now! They have just released a brand new watercraft that is sure to cause waves in the market. Based in the Netherlands, Vanquish Yachts offers you something truly unique. Their high-end, high-performance yachts are built by hand using the very latest construction techniques. Their boats have a radical appearance and an elegant allure that sets them truly apart from anything else on the water. While they are well known for their larger vessels, they have just released a brand new product based around the styling and design of a PWC. Their stunning Vanqraft VQ16 “Jet ski Yacht” is sure to be a hit.

The Vanqraft VQ16 is a crossover between a superyacht and a jet ski. Stand at the helm of this spacious 5.07 meter-long beauty and you are guaranteed to enjoy the thrill of a genuinely unique watercraft. The best part is; you can also have five of your friends or family on board! For the eagle-eyed enthusiast, you’ll recognize a lot of the Vanqraft is based off of a Yamaha FX.

Powered by a 160-horsepower Yamaha HO 1.8L engine, you can easily reach 40 knots on the water. If you want to go even faster, you can opt for the supercharged SHO-powered “Veloce” edition that roars along at more than 50 knots! The craft also features a full reverse feature which gives you full flexibility and maneuverability [we presume this is by employing Yamaha’s RiDE system -Ed.].

Like all of their other watercraft, the VQ16 is fully customizable and will be built to your exact specifications or taste! The VQ16 isn’t cheap though, with a sticker price of $79,950 Euros (around $89,000 USD before tax, we’ve been told). The supercharged Veloce version stickers at $94,950 Euros (around $106,000 USD before tax). While they aren’t cheap, they look totally sharp. Check it out!

Since the age of 4, Cody has been obsessed with everything Mopar. On Christmas of 1998, Cody's parents gave him a beat up '69 Charger shell that his father saved from a field. Fast forward 17 years, Cody still has the Charger, along with a few other Mopars ranging from a '70 Coronet, a '73 Duster and a couple of current SRTs. Cody can truly and proudly say he is a true Mopar nut in love with all types of Mopars!
