Aquila Power Catamarans received international awards for its Aquila 36 and Aquila 44 models.

The Aquila 44 won Best Multihull Motor Yacht up to 50 feet at the 2018 Asian Boating Awards, and the Aquila 36 was named Multihull of the Year in the Power Multihulls category by Multihulls World.

Created by Asia-Pacific Boating and China Boating magazines in 2005, the annual Asia Boating Awards were presented during an April 11 ceremony held before the Singapore Yacht Show’s opening.

The Multihull of the Year award winners are nominated and voted on by visitors to the Multihulls World website.

“We were thrilled to learn the Aquila 44 and Aquila 36 won these very impressive international awards,” MarineMax’s Aquila president Lex Raas said in a statement.

“These awards are a testament to our international approach for our Aquila brand, designed by the renowned J&J team from Slovenia and built by Sino Eagle Yachts of China,” Sino Eagle Yachts CEO Frank Xiong said.
