  1. Q52 Dayboat Designed By Vripack
    Dayboats are still the rage and with continual freshness being inserted from new designers, a day on the water is becoming increasingly more sophisticated and luxurious. Vripack has been behind the Q52 Dayboat design to be built by a company called Qnautic. Of course the Q52 can be utilized as a tender to be carried aboard some class of superyachts, ideally on an open deck or as a chase boat.
  2. The Q52 has an LOA of 16.01-meters and a beam of 4.5-meters along with a minimal draft of just 1-meter. Power is supplied via 2 X 600 horse power Cummins QSC 600 which should be able to produce a 40-knot top speed. The vessel melds performance with a luxurious aesthetic while allowing flexibility for different users. This vessel is designed for high-speed transits and definitely should not be a 'marina queen'.
  3. Onboard there is room to sleep two guests in a dedicated owners cabin while up front in the bow there is a V-hull relaxing are with a hi-lo table that is likely berthable should that capability be needed. The owner's cabin can be split into two separate beds to become twins if needed as well. The interior decor is light and airy focusing on sandy colors and textures with inserts of metallic ribboning.
  4. Further on the interior, there is a kitchenette for a day on the water. The Q52 certainly isn't short on cooking facilities. Take a look below at what is on offer in the galley area. Bosch appliances integrated into a kitchenette region with sizable sink and counter space to make meal prep and finishing straightforward.
  5. When guests have finished eating and want to freshen up there is a dedicated dayhead/shower area. It runs with the theme of the interior and is appropriately appointed with quality hardware and other fixtures. Direct and indirect lighting finish the atmosphere. A vessel sink and tall modern faucet adds a splash of elegance to the vanity area while a glazing assembly separates the shower area.
  6. Moving outside to the main deck area, the Q52 Dayboat is controlled from a console area integrated to the port side. Two large-format Raymarine displays are ready to display relevant information to the commander of this craft. This area is fully covered by a hardtop while the aft features comfortable seating for relaxing when at anchor or even underway. Underfoot is teak finishing to add to the luxury, yacht-like feel.
