Dream Boat: Vanquish VQ58

Imagine trolling around Lowcountry waters in this all-aluminum stud of a powerboat. The VQ58 is available in four equally diverse models: an open version, wheelhouse, T-top and fully enclosed hard-top. Designed in partnership with super yacht designer Guido de Groot, it offers a remarkable number of variations in terms of layout, superstructure, propulsion and more, meaning that no two VQ58s are likely to be the same. If you’ve got the funds and a thirst for the baddest luxury/performance boat on the market, accept no substitutes.

As people turn their backs on mainstream designs, bullish boats like the VQ58 really stand out from the crowd. Custom-built by hand to ensure awesome maneuverability and maximum comfort, it is in a league of its own for its size bracket.

Spacious gangways allow people to easily and safely move around. The al fresco breakfast/dinner space around a table for 10 on the aft deck is a unique experience for a 58-foot motoryacht.
To help justify the heavy price tag, the VQ58 offers a low cost of ownership and retains a high resale value.
