MarineMax Vacations has made Cooper Boating a preferred partner. The MarineMax Vacations Preferred Partner Program matches charter operations around the world with clients.

“We have selected Cooper Boating as a partner, not only because they have the award-winning Aquila 44 power catamaran in their charter fleet, but also for their quality reputation, leadership in the region and dedication to customer service,” said Raul Bermudez, vice president of MarineMax Charter Division, in a statement.

Cooper Yacht Charters was started in 1983 by Forbes Cooper, who manufactured thousands of boats in British Columbia. He sold the charter and school business in 1988 and later sold the boat factory to new owners, although he does still build custom projects under the WestCoast Custom Yachts brand.

Cooper Boating currently has the only two Aquila 44 catamarans in Canada available for charter.

“Having the only two Aquila 44s in the country available for charter establishes Cooper Boating as industry leaders providing a unique luxury offering to those who are new or seasoned bareboat charterers,” said Colin Jackson, president of Cooper Boating.
