The fourth wonder of Vanquish

The Vanquish 48 is the fourth boat of this newly formed firm to jump into the water, and has quickly become its flagship in the segment of open sport boats, thanks to the features it is able to offer and that place it above many others of its kind.

First of all we will talk about its dimensions: 14.82 mt of length with a beam of 4.07 mt that provides enough space to comfortably accommodate 11 people.

The space on deck is very well used. It has a large aft solarium located above the engine room (also quite spacious) followed by a living area with convertible bimini, ideal for socializing and hanging out with friends.

On the bow, the Vanquish 48 also has a second sitting area on the bow, which together with the previous one allows to comfortably place all its occupants without any problem.

The equipment of this boat includes an excellent sound system to take the party with you wherever you go, and the materials and finishes applied on deck ensure a comfortable stay to you and all your guests.

The dimensions of this boat make it a very popular charter, as it has a lot of space under its large sofas to get on board with us all those toys we want to take for that weekend adventure, without taking up living space or occupy living space on deck.

It also has a cabin equipped with a spacious dinette that easily becomes a double bed, also has a bathroom and a kitchen area that have what it takes to spend a few days in comfort at sea without having to touch port.

Without a doubt the Vanquish 48 is a very difficult ship to overcome, especially if we also take into account its powerful engine: Two Yanmar capable of delivering 370 Hp of power and make this boat reach 40 knots, this, of course, without ever losing maneuverability and ease of operation.

Come to Barracuda Ibiza and get one of these incredible boats for that deserved weekend, taking advantage of the seasonal offers that only here you can get, from 2133 euros. Believe me, you won’t regret it, and you’ll come back for more.

Inexperience of the crew

The accidental fall of people into the water is one of the main causes of death. To the risk that the fall goes unnoticed and, consequently, the necessary help is not received, it is necessary to add that of suffering hypothermia by prolonged permanence in the water. We must take precautions
to avoid an unexpected fall into the water.
The most common causes of overboard falls are:

If you move around the boat with your body leaning towards the handrails using them as a support point and one of them has a defect or is not of the proper height, you may fall overboard.
If we do not take into account the movements of the ship, because we are not monitoring the state of the sea, a shipment of rough sea or a strong bilge can send us overboard.
Many times the inexperience of the crew, does not keep them subject to the solid parts of the ship, this can easily lead to a fall into the sea.
If we do not wear shoes with non-slip soles, we are in danger, a slip may cause us to fall overboard.
When the crew member makes a maneuver on deck, especially in bad weather, if he is not wearing a life jacket or harness and is attached to the lifeline or safety can be a cause of fall. There is also a risk when verifying deck elements, sheets, ropes, etc. when the sea is in bad condition.
The absence of safety nets around the boat can be a danger to children.
Another very common case of falling is doing your physiological needs overboard, or vomiting into the sea when you are dizzy.
Violent actions between two passengers or crew members is one of the most frequent causes of falling overboard.
In a fisherman’s fight against his prey, the animal can be defeated and the fisherman can be fired.
We always recommend that you take your nautical safety equipment, to be well equipped is the necessary safety guarantee.
