Smooth operator

The Vanquish brand first made its name for custom driver’s boats over 45 feet in aluminium, designed by Guido de Groot Design. In 2019 they introduced a thrilling range of 40-foot designs in composite to bring Vanquish power and excitement to an even wider audience. The VQ40 quickly became renowned for its smooth performance and ease of handling.

Multiple uses

The VQ40 is a mighty multifunctional Vanquish model. The large rubber rub rail makes it perfect as a superyacht tender and a chase boat. But most owners see their VQ40 as a superior sports boat with a choice between inboard and outboard engines. The triple Verado 450R outboards offer a scorching top speed of at least 65 knots, which is more than enough for water-skiing. There’s also a Veloce version with triple Seven Marine 627 hp engines if you’d like to get to your snorkelling destination even faster. Regardless of which you choose, you’ll sure feel the power in one of the co-pilot seats.

Relaxed style

The VQ40 is about more than sports and speed. The inboard models ( are ideal for the al fresco life, with many options for 16 people to lounge, sunbathe lunch and party. Behind the helm is a smart outdoor-galley area, complete with electric grill, Corian countertop, sink, wine cooler/fridge and/or icemaker, plus a storage locker. Below decks you can fit anything from a queen bed to a large kitchen, as well as a shower and toilet. All VQ40s can be personalised in terms of their interior style, upholstery and colour scheme. The low draught increases access to smaller harbours, making the VQ40 ideal for chartering too.
