MarineMax set to display two Aquila yachts at FLIBS

MarineMax will display an Aquila 44 Island version and a special Aquila 48 Private Owner version.

MarineMax will display an Aquila 44 Island version and a special Aquila 48 Private Owner version at the 57th annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

The show opens Thursday and will continue through Monday.

MarineMax said the 44 Island version is specially designed with a layout that maximizes privacy with three staterooms and three heads, allowing three couples to cruise by day and access privacy at night.

“The layout of the Island versions of Aquila power catamarans was designed for our MarineMax Vacations charters in the BVI,” MarineMax Aquila brand manager Harry Mountain said in a statement. “However, it is available for private ownership. It is especially suited for those who love to cruise with family and friends.”

The Aquila 48 that MarineMax will have on display is a three-cabin, three-head layout with Volvo Penta 370-hp engines and a fully enclosed bridge with A/C, a grill, fridge and icemaker.

Model highlights also include bow thrusters and a Northern Lights 16kw generator. The aft deck features a galley, aft bar and U-shaped settee. The private master cabin occupies the port hull with a roomy en suite head, lounging area and aft berth with walk-around access.

“The Aquila 48 Power Catamaran is a yacht that any serious cruiser should consider taking a look at,” Mountain said. “It is a genuine masterpiece and it is exceptionally well priced. If your time is limited while at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, to avoid disappointment I recommend calling ahead to set an appointment with a MarineMax professional.”
