Designed as an entry-level motoryacht with superyacht attitude, the V68 focuses on owner operation. The model was a concept designed in collaboration with Jonathan Quinn Barnett (JQB) and based on feedback from clients and international yacht brokers. Under 70ft, it took nine years in making.
The yacht has been planned throughout with large open spaces, wide side decks and a voluminous interior. On main deck, an open saloon flows into a large joined galley and country kitchen, while below deck accommodates three en-suite guest staterooms including a full-beam master.
The open flybridge, which is the standard configuration for this model, features a day head and bar with dinette seating under the hard top while a spacious sunbathing and dining area is found further forward on the bow.
An aft beach club area ensures watersports fun. If desired, this area can be outfitted for crew’s quarters or an owner’s workspace. The yacht provides extended cruising capabilities via twin Caterpillar C18 ACERTs of 1,136HP each.
