V10 with Innovation award!
Nearly a year after the V10’s official unveiling, we’ve made significant strides. Although progress seemed slow at the outset, a year’s perspective reveals a journey filled with challenges and triumphs.
The strategy we chose for showcasing the V10 and building the brand has delivered on our expectations, garnering international recognition. Making our debut at Interboot 2022 – a highly prestigious event – proved to be right on target.
Sailing the V10 Through International Waters
The Interboot fair saw the V10 grab headlines, described as: “An innovative revelation from Poland’s newest motorboat creators, Virtue Yachts. Making waves far beyond Europe, Virtue is unveiling their groundbreaking Virtue V10 for the first time at Interboot. This forward-thinking, 10-meter recreational boat surpasses high-quality standards and environmental sustainability. With a central helmstand, a sunroof equipped with solar panels, and ample outdoor space, the V10 is a league apart. The hull, perfected with patented Swedish Petestep technology and built via vacuum infusion, adds to its uniqueness. Powering the future, Virtue aligned with Evoy of Norway’s electric outboard motors. The single-use approved versions produce 150 hp each, while the maximum-power version offers two motors of 250 hp each.
- 1,500 exhibitors
- 96,000 square meters of space
- 237,000 visitors
Clearly, our presence at Interboot was an opportunity to sail into uncharted waters, one that propelled the V10 onto the international stage.
Upon the heels of our successful premiere, we navigated to Boot Düsseldorf, the most esteemed boating event in Europe. The feedback at the event was overwhelmingly positive, lauding the meticulous detail, artisanal craftsmanship, and exceptional quality of our V10 Top model. The comfort, specifically of the cockpit seating, drew special praise. Our efforts also caught the eye of Marine Industry News magazine. For a visual recap, the video review on Barche a Motore gives a compelling overview.
The V10, our Polish-built flagship, established its footprint not only across Europe but reached further international waters. Smart Yachting, with operations in Mallorca, Marbella, and Ibiza, has embraced the V10. In Turkey, Mayco Marine brings the V10 experience to customers, while Swiss Nautik has taken up the mantle in Switzerland and Germany.
The V10’s journey has even crossed hemispheres to reach Australia. There, Carbon Yachts in Sydney offer the V10, having had the opportunity to film an insightful review during the Palma Boat Show, available for viewing on YouTube.
Today, at our headquarters in the Polish Land of a Thousand Lakes, we are constructing the V10 for the Turkish distributor, Mayco Marine, who will showcase it at the Eurasia Boat Show in Istanbul this October. It is here, close to the shipyard, where we also conduct water tests and extend an invitation to all potential distributors to experience the V10 firsthand.
In the limelight, not only within our industry but across the media spectrum, the Virtue V10 has made waves. Garnering attention from the prestigious “Forbes Spain” was a significant boost to our brand’s visibility.
Further recognition of the V10 came from multiple respected publications within the boating industry, including BoatBlurb, PlugBoats, Barche A Motore, Powerboat & RIB and mby.com. Its unique design, innovative features, and impeccable craftsmanship didn’t go unnoticed, strengthening the V10’s position in the market and drawing a growing clientele.
Looking ahead, we’re setting our sights on Sydney and Cannes. Even before our brand rings in its first year, we’re slated for participation in two more marquee events. First on the calendar, thanks to Carbon Yachts, is the Sydney Boat Show 2023, scheduled for August 3-6—a tradition that stretches back 54 years.
Here’s to the first of many milestones we’re looking forward to celebrating with you!
