MarineMax-owned Aquila, builder of power catamarans, announced a “significant factory expansion” and plans to introduce new models in 2020.

The company will discuss the developments in detail at the upcoming Miami International Boat Show, which runs Feb. 13-17.

"Evolution comes from pushing the boundaries, testing possibilities, and committing to a vision beyond the current status quo," said Aquila product development head Lex Raas in a statement. "Aquila has a legacy of achieving these results with every new product they have brought to the boating community.”

The company will bring its Aquila 32, 36 and 44 to the show, and will highlight “big things to come in 2020” — a major factory expansion, the debut of the Aquila 54 and the Aquila 70, and launch of the cruiser version of the Aquila 36.

"The predominant factor to success with expanding the model lineup is the Aquila factory expansion, including new technology, a 3D Axis machine, and test facility," said Raas.
