The Q52 is the second collaboration between design studio Vripack and boatbuilder Qnautic, both in the Netherlands. The 52-foot center-console superyacht tender is built in fiberglass with a deep-V hull form. It’s powered by twin 600 hp Cummins QSC diesels that reportedly produce a 40-knot top speed. The Q52 has three helm seats for the skipper and guests, wraparound guest seating aft, a wet bar, ergonomically minded abovedecks spaces, and a passerelle for boarding.

Whom It’s For: Qnautic’s Q52 is for owners who want a yacht tender that can move family members and guests to and from the dock or beach while delivering high-performance grins.  

Picture This: It’s a warm afternoon in Antigua’s Falmouth Harbour in the Caribbean, and the kids are itching to play. Your partner mentions a secluded beach. So, you load up the Qnautic Q52 at Falmouth Harbour Marina, where your main ride is berthed, and cruise to Green Island to make use of the Q52’s swim platform.
