Smooth, powerful and multifunctional
A superior sports boat that can also function as a superyacht tender or a chase boat.
The VQ40 is a new thrilling design from Vanquish which brings power and excitement to a wider audience. It is renowned for its smooth performance and ease of handling. The hull, designed by New Zealand based Bakewell-White Yacht Design, enhances acceleration, wave riding skills and manoeuvrability.
Able to be equipped with a wide variety of engines, this boat can easily be customised to suit your requirements. The standard outboard version ranges from twin Mercury Verado 225 hp engines or the upgraded Veloce model with triple 400hp enabling speeds over 65 knots which is more than enough for waterskiing. If cruising and easy swimming and snorkelling access off the aft deck is more your style, then the inboard propulsion options are also available.
The VQ40 is all about lifestyle, not just sports and speed. Onboard, up to 16 people can enjoy the alfresco lifestyle, with plenty of space to lounge, sunbathe and entertain. Behind the helm is a smart outdoor-galley area, complete with electric grill, Corian countertop, sink, wine cooler/fridge and/or icemaker, plus a storage locker. Below deck, you can fit anything from a queen bed to a large kitchen, as well as a shower and toilet
Onboard, the T-Top provides shade and protection while also maximising the airflow, important in sunny Australian conditions. It also adds to the sleek, stylish appearance of this classy machine.

Dave owned his 28 T-Top for only 6 short months before upgrading to a 37 Sun Top and now with a 28 Cabin, so I think it is safe to say he has a bit of experience with Axopars. We thought he would be the perfect person to talk to about the various models, likes, dislikes and the adventures they have taken him on.
Axopar 28 owner Ian was extremely impressed by the Eyachts team and how helpful everyone was. “Well done Axopar and the eYachts team!”
“This boat is a winner for a (ok retired!) couple like us who want to have confidence in the manufacturer and dealer.”
Working with the team in Sydney was great… there were never problems, only solutions.
I found that across the board with everyone I was in contact with at Eyachts.
I’ve made a lot of purchases from dental equipment to motorcycles. I have never experienced a standard set so high across an organisation.

The Axopar 22 is incredibly easy to drive and manoeuvre, the boat’s stepped hull means it’s also very stable at a variety of speeds and conditions. Eyachts and VesselTec have been a pleasure to deal with.”
