Vanquish Yachts is a relatively new company to the marine world. They began business in 2012 and have since created some of the very best yachts on the market. They create comfort and sophistication for those that have the resources to obtain one of their top of the line products. Tom Steentjes is the creator of the brand, and he takes great care to ensure the quality of each of the premium boats that his company creates.
Prior to founding Vanquish he had been a successful machine equipment business man. He translated his love for the impossible in the boating arena with the over the top design that his customers requested to create a one of a kind brand that builds to suit the out of the box thinking of his customers. All vanquish yachts have the same basic design and hull details. Where they vary is the layout on top of the hull.
This layout can be customized if needed to accommodate the customer’s needs. He built his company from scratch and have become one of the top competitors in the boating industry. His Vanquish yachts are highly sought for their attention to detail and workmanship. The galleys were designed by top chefs to give gourmet options to those that wish to have a top notch kitchen on board. The contemporary style gives these boats a beautiful look that will attract attention and allow for comfort.
All of their yachts use handworked aluminum and avoid excessive use of plastic to give a sturdy and sophisticated feel. Most of the yachts feature low profile Zeus pods, but there is an option to have outboard motors if desired. The priority of the Vanquish yacht maker is customer comfort, quality, and overall satisfaction. Vanquish Yachts looks forward to customizing their boats to fit the owner’s needs.
