Turkey-based Emek Marin has joined the Aquila Power Catamarans dealership network.

The dealership is offering the Aquila 48, 44 and 36.

“We are pleased to have Aquila among our lineup of boats and yachts and be the exclusive dealer in Turkey,” Emek Marin COO Riza Çağdaş Çakir said in a statement.

Emek Marin is a family-run yacht retailer and service center that has operated since the 1950s. The company started out by adapting industrial engines for marine use while machining power shafts and propellers.

Today Emek Marin has expanded to become a yacht retailer and service center in Turkey. In addition to creating technical yacht customizations, the company offers brands that include Hinckley, Amel, Catana, Nordhavn, Sargo, Fleming and Cruisers Yachts.

“Having Emek Marin join our dealership network opens the doors for new opportunities in Turkey,” said Yvan Eymieu, Aquila international sales and distribution manager for MarineMax, the exclusive dealer for Aquila Boats worldwide, excluding mainland China.
