Aquila Yachts, the Chinese catamarans with an American heart

The perfect American “made in China” yacht Aquila bets on wide spaces. Aquila catamarans represent some of the newest boating evolutions on the market today. The Chinese team started its activity in 2012 thanks to the partnership with Sino Eagle Group (a company that, founded in 1985, manufactures plastic kayaks and is one among the world’s major yacht builders specialized in advanced composite construction technologies) and MarineMax, one among the world’s major powerboats dealer. The original idea was to create a 38-foot catamaran for charter companies. The concept was developed by J&J Design (Azimut, Beneteau Group and Bavaria are only some of their clients). The Aquila 48 was therefore launched, followed by the Aquila 36, the only outboard-propelled model of the range. At Cannes Yachting Festival 2018, the Aquila 44 had her official debut.

All models feature a false central hull to increase volumes in the forward sections and guarantee more stability in a rough sea. In the two bigger models, the main pilot station is on the flybridge but the owner can even ask for an additional pilot house inside. The fly bridge is exactly one among the most captivating elements of the 44’, accessible from both the stern and the bow. Interiors are very bright thanks to large windows in each cabin, bathrooms included.
