Vanquish Boats has announced that the company will be hosting a Summer Launch Party on June 25, 2016 at the Newport Shipyard.

From 4:30 – 6:30 p.m., all are invited to enjoy a cocktail, sponsored by KEEL vodka, and to climb aboard for the only opportunity of the summer to see all of the Vanquish models in one place, including the new 21-foot Bristol Harbor Series.

To reserve your spot, RSVP to events@vanquishboats.com.

“This is a great opportunity to come see our entire line up in a fun, casual setting,” said Morgan Huntley, president of Vanquish. “Come experience the new 21-foot Bristol Harbor Series Center Console and Cuddy Cabin and check out the plans for the Runabout. We will also have the first sneak peak of the upcoming Vanquish 30-foot.”

Last month, Vanquish announced the acquisition of Bristol Harbor Boats. First built in 2006 by the Bristol Harbor Group, Bristol Harbor Boats were largely constructed in Mexico and sold in the Northeast. As a part of the acquisition, the Bristol Harbor Series will now be built in Bristol, Rhode Island on the same production line as the existing Vanquish models, and sold nationwide and in Canada.

The 21’ Bristol Harbor Series rides on a Vinyl-Ester Epoxy Resin hull skin that is foam filled and resin sealed. Like all Vanquish models, the construction is 100 percent composite and wood-free.

Sea trials are available by appointment at the Summer Launch via email: info@vanquishboats.com.  Other models that will be at the Newport Shipyard for the evening and for sea trials include: 21-foot Center Console; 21-foot Cuddy Cabin; 24-foot Center Console; 24-foot Runabout; 26-foot Center Console and; 26-foot Dual Console.

Headquartered in Newport, Rhode Island, Vanquish brings time-tested classic designs, the pride of generational craftsmen and the advantage of today’s exciting new materials and technologies. For more information, visit: www.vanquishboats.com.
