The first VQ115 Veloce will roar along at a blistering 50-plus knots and break records in the process.

The launch model for the VQ115 Veloce line is the result of brainstorming sessions between a Vanquish repeat client and company founder Tom Steentjes. While initial discussions were based on design concepts for a VQ90, the owner added an extra cabin, a dedicated dining area on the lower deck and two garages.

The installation of the largest engines possible – a trio of MTU-Rolls-Royce 2650s mated to surface drives – will power the VQ115 Veloce to more than 50 knots, making her quite possibly the fastest aluminium yacht over 30m with non-turbine diesel engines.
The engines will be placed in a trapezium shape with the middle engine forward, while two gyro stabilisers will ensure comfort at all speeds. An impressive range of up to 600nm will be possible when running on one or two engines, with an extra fuel tank available for cruising at lower speeds.

This is entertainment
Despite the phenomenal propulsion package, there’s still space aft for a large tender bay that will house a VQ16 tender, a multifunctional hydraulic platform with passerelle and a swimming ladder, plus a second tender garage/leisure playground on the starboard side.
Outdoor entertainment includes an expansive foredeck with the option to create a saltwater jacuzzi. There is a wealth of relaxation options on the aft deck, too, while the flybridge has a dedicated sunbathing area.
The futuristic interior layout makes optimum use of the extra space available. The main deck saloon will be fully tailored to the owner’s wishes with movable furniture to allow flexibility of use. Office space is included, there is a neat pantry and cocktail bar, plus a day-head to keep the lower deck private. Stairs access the sport flybridge while the aft door opens fully to create a unified space with the aft deck.

The lower deck features a more extensive galley and a U-shaped seating/dining area in a country-kitchen style. Accommodations includes a full-beam master suite, a VIP and a guest cabin, all with their own bathrooms. A dedicated media room includes two Pullmans that bring the potential sleeping capacity to eight. There are also berths for four crew members.

In production
This potentially record-breaking powerboat is due to be delivered in the Hamptons, USA, later this year. Talks are underway for further models and owners who appreciate the design but don’t need the speed can adapt their engine configuration accordingly.
