Q is a magnificent 52m sailing yacht built for extensive blue-water cruising. The multi award-winning ketch-rigged sailing yacht presents an outstanding combination of performance excellence and sophistication.
With unrivalled quality of build by the renowned Alloy Yachts and a sleek Dubois designed exterior and interior, the custom-built Q was delivered in 2008 and underwent refits in 2014 and 2016.
Q’s spacious cockpit has been designed with a spectacular system of fully retractable windows that offers guests uninterrupted views in a climate controlled area at the touch of a button. The open plan main salon which also offers 360 degree panoramic views, is a stylish and modern space with a subtle oriental twist thanks to her fabulous Reymond Langton interior.
Below on the lower deck is accommodation for 10/12 guests across five luxurious staterooms consisting of a full beam master suite, two doubles, and two twins each with a Pullman berth.
Outside, Q boasts a flybridge with a comfortable seating and dining area and a large Jacuzzi on the foredeck that is surrounded by sumptuous sunpads, ideal for entertaining and relaxing. What’s more, Q houses an armada of water toys, from kayaks and water skis to snorkelling gear and inflatables.
With top performance sails from North Sails, this all-oceans yacht has a maximum speed of 15 knots. Q’s 1200hp Caterpillar engine gives her a huge range of 3.500 nautical miles when cruising comfortably.
