The Aquila 36, the newest in the company’s lineup, will be presented at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

Aquila Power Catamarans will present its Aquila 36 and Aquila 44 at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show Nov. 1-5.

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 36 is an exciting and very unique power cat, leading the way for another game-changing evolution in boating,” MarineMax Aquila president Lex Raas said in a statement. “Designed in partnership with the award-winning J&J Design, she utilizes a hull design that provides a tremendous amount of storage as well as social space that are complemented with cruising comforts and excellent fuel economy.”

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.
