The Aquila 36, launched at the 2017 Miami International Boat Show, has cockpit seating for more than two dozen adults and two cabins with private en-suite heads. The hardtop is available with or without a sunroof.

The boat is powered by twin 250-hp Mercury Verado outboards; twin 300-hp or 350-hp Verados are options.

The Aquila 44 has a 360-degree view from the salon and galley, and the boat has a large sitting area, hidden TV stowage and storage.

Galley features include Corian countertops, an electric refrigerator and freezer, stove and stainless-steel microwave, as well as a double stainless-steel sink.

The boat also has an oversize flybridge with added enclosure, an electric grill and sunpad seating on either side of the central helm station.
