Aquila catamarans will be on display at the Aug. 3-7 Sydney show.

Multihull Central will present a variety of Aquila Power Catamarans, including the Australian debut of the Aquila 36, at the Sydney International Boat Show.

“We are proud to have the award-winning Aquila 44 and the Australian debut of the all-new Aquila 36 at the Sydney International Boat Show,” Aquila international distribution manager Yvan Eymieu said in a statement.

The new Aquila 36 offers a topside summer kitchen with a smokeless grill. It has cockpit seating for more than two dozen adults and two cabins with private en suite heads, and it is powered by twin 250-hp Mercury Verado outboards. Twin 300-hp or 350-hp Verados are offered as options.

A hardtop is available with or without an opening sunroof.

“This is an incredible opportunity to tour one of the fastest-growing brands of catamaran that are exclusively power,” Multihull Central director Brent Vaughan said. “If you want the comfort, stability, low draft, economy and incredible living space of a catamaran but are not interested in sailing, then Aquila is your solution. As this is sure to be a popular show, we highly suggest appointments be made in advance.”

The Aug. 3-7 Sydney show, Australia’s biggest boat show, is celebrating its 50th anniversary at ICC Sydney on Darling Harbour.
