Aquila Power Catamarans is celebrating its 10th anniversary, the builder said in a statement yesterday.

In a decade, Aquila said in the statement, it has sold more than 500 boats and is the No. 1 power cat builder in sales. It added that the brand is among the top 10 in all yachts sold from 40 to 60 feet.

“So much has happened in just 10 years,” said brand manager Alain Ross. “The Aquila team continues to push boundaries, with the launch of our first center console model to countless accolades from the industry. We've relied on our brand pillars to guide us in this journey, and you can see performance, innovation and quality standing tall in every Aquila vessel cruising the world’s waters today.”

The company was founded in a partnership involving MarineMax executive board chairman Bill McGill, multihull pioneer Lex Raas and Sino Eagle Yachts. MarineMax is the exclusive distributor of Aquila boats.
