Proving, once again, that Vripack’s talents are not limited by size, the Dutch design studio has brought its creative design to the shores of tender production. Introducing the Q52: the first 16.10m (52.8 ft) powerful day boat from Qnautic. Built for enjoyment, designed for adventure.



The Q52 is a dynamic superyacht tender with thrill-seeking at its heart. Brought to life by Dutch family-owned boat builder Qnautic, it pairs capability with luxurious aesthetics. Teak decking runs throughout. Wide and comfortable helm seats are complemented by a luxurious aft seating area. For sunworshippers, the couch electrically converts to an oversized sunbed with a hardtop Bimini to shade from the midday heat. An outdoor bar with a wine cooler and fridge completes the exterior beach club vibe.



“The Q39 combined existing RIB designs with contemporary techniques and styling, bringing to life the super RIB. So, when tasked with the brief to take it to the next level and create the Q52 tender, we happily accepted the challenge.”


A wide hydraulic passarelle makes stepping on and off safe and easy. Whether travelling to and from the mothership or setting off on an exploration, when underway the Q52 transforms into a fast-paced machine with a top speed of 40 knots.



The Q52 is the second boat to benefit from Vripack and Qnautic’s collaborative imagination, following on from the 2020 launch of the Q39 super-RIB. Originating from a need for a fast and safe RIB suitable for offshore use, the result is a tender with ingenious naval architecture, proven build quality and a beautiful, creative design.




Built from lightweight composite and powered by Zeus Pod propulsion with joystick steering, the Q52 delivers a whole new level of performance, fuel efficiency, safety and comfort, even at top speeds.



For owners keen on a weekend retreat, the interior seals the deal. The double owner’s cabin seamlessly converts into two twins when required. In the dinette forward, a further two guests can be accommodated thanks to a U-shaped couch that converts to a double bed. A spacious shower is divided from the day head by a glass shading wall. Cantalupi lighting brings a contemporary finish.

The Q52. One extraordinary superyacht tender, two heritage Dutch brands.



"The Q52 has become a beauty of a yacht, when you look to the exterior as well as the interior. She is a real piece of quality craftsmanship".
