This is one of the nicest and best equipped Aquila 44’s on the market.  Rare inside helm station forward in the salon.  Very lightly used, never chartered. Super low engine and generator hours. Owner has maintained and upgraded at a very high level.  Extra fuel tanks for extended cruising range. Flybridge Grill and Fridge.  Engines have been fully serviced and ready to go cruising. 

Born of innovation and experience, the luxurious Aquila 44 Yacht Power Catamaran is a world leader in its class. Designed to be both a long-distance cruising yacht and a highly social platform, the highly experienced Aquila design and engineering team created the Aquila 44 Yacht to optimize performance.

Two Volvo Penta diesel engines are situated aft behind the living compartments reducing noise and vibrations. Bulbous bows increase the waterline for greater efficiency while reducing pitching moments. Multifunction displays, digital controls, joystick operation, engine monitoring displays, thrusters, and widely spaced main engines make operating the Aquila 44 Yacht easily accomplished by a single couple.

With an enormous amount of attention to detail and knowledge of how owners use their boats, both the exterior and interior spaces are perfected to serve those utilizations. The stairway from the flybridge to the foredeck gives safe, easy access to the ground tackle locker and forward cleats when anchoring or docking. Wide side decks and safety handrails are another example of the Aquila’s commitment to owners’ and guests’ comfort and safety on the 44 Yacht model.
