Meet The Vanquish VQ11, a Rotax-Powered “Premium” PWC


It was this wild headline that piqued our interest: Vanquish Yachts tarts up a jet ski to look a little less vulgar. We had to know what was behind the author’s obvious disdain for jet skis. PWC have long been used around yachts either for pleasure or as tenders to make your way to land. We don’t think there is anything wrong with using jet skis to get around when the yacht is anchored.

The Vanquish VQ11 is designed with a yacht like shape, like a classic Boston Whaler. It is larger than a typical jet ski, coming in at 11 feet and a little over 5 feet wide and seats up to 3 people. The Vanquish VQ11 is outfitted with a powerful 170-horsepower Sea-Doo engine with a top speed of 58mph.

It may be oversized, but it can make a turn sharp enough to spray the yacht while joyriding. In the accompanying video, they say it turns like a “go kart.” That must be their way of appealing to the commoner.

The VQ11 is tucked away in the large VQ58 when it isn’t being used. Check out the video to see it in action! It does look fun for an overpriced and oversized jet ski and you and the VQ11 will definitely stand out from all the ordinary jet skis when you will pull up to the dock to grab groceries. Like Vanquish says: The VQ11 is not for everyone.
