It’s not for everyone. But, if you appreciate fine engineering, exceptional style, hand-built craftsmanship, and outstanding audio, it’s for you. Oh, and speed. There’s that: 40 kts stock, but 50+ in the Veloce version. Following closely on the heels of the first delivery in St. Tropez, this second build in the Vanquish VQ48 series is about to hit the water in Ibiza, with many wishing it were theirs to receive.

Taking a clutch of guests on an epic day trip, the VQ 48 seats 19 in its posh cockpit. The cabin design below gives thoughtful privacy, the head and galley accessible without tromping through the master cabin, divine in its own right. The Dutch are brilliant that way, even moving the rain shower into the ceiling for extra headroom, creating lockers under the settees for an abundance of toys, and designing an electric submarine folding anchor system that hides chains and winches from view at anchor, keeping things smooth down below to reduce drag.

Sun pads, a foredeck, specially designed helm seating, and an ingenious convertible top that appears and vanishes like magic, without braces or bars required by other designs, are just a few of the additional features that established demand for this stunner. All this, packed into just 14.6 meters of gorgeous marine sculpture, gets the benefit of Brian’s Custom Audio, the Dutch firm famous for its handiwork in a number of Ferraris.

Smooth as silk in both ride and style, the Vanquish VQ48 displays a distinct likeness to fine sports cars, in handling, design, and comfort. The parallel is so keen, one has to wonder if it might even have a distinctive sound on ignition. Time for a test drive, no?
