Aquila Yachts will celebrate the one-year anniversary of its U.S. sales hub at MarineMax St. Petersburg on Aug. 19.

The celebration will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Guests are invited to enjoy music, light hors d’oeuvres and drinks.

The Aquila 44 and the new Aquila 36 will be available for personal tours. Guests will have the opportunity to demo either of these models by scheduling an appointment in advance.

“St. Petersburg has been an incredible home for Aquila for this past year,” brand manager Harry Mountain said in a statement. “Being centrally located in the state of Florida has helped the brand grow tremendously.”

Aquila was launched in 2012 by a team of experts from multiple development, design and manufacturing firms, including Sino Eagle Group, J&J Design Group, Seaway and MarineMax.

Sino Eagle Group built a new factory to provide the Aquila brand with full in-house manufacturing capabilities. Aquila has since released its full line of models, including the Aquila 48, Aquila 44 and the new Aquila 36. The Aquila 60 will debut in 2019.

“The entire Aquila line is available to tour and demo here at MarineMax St. Petersburg. Improvements made to our store in the last year include a redesigned sales center and brand-new marina. With direct access to the beautiful Tampa Bay and Gulf of Mexico, it's the perfect slip space for Aquila,” MarineMax St. Petersburg store manager Joshua Lavine said. “We are excited for the opportunity to share this unique and growing brand with our customers.”
