Luxury catamaran builder Aquila Power Catamarans has confirmed details of expansion in the Gulf region, through its latest regional partnership. 

The boatbuilder will work with KJM Marine to showcase and sell Aquila models in the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman and Bahrain.

Yvan Eymieu, international sales and distribution manager at Aquila, remarks: “We are ecstatic to broaden our presence in the Gulf region by joining forces with KJM Marine. Their unwavering dedication to delivering exceptional aftersales service, combined with their impressive network of partners, positions them as the ideal collaborator for Aquila Catamarans as we continue to innovate and grow in the market.”

Established in 2022, KJM Marine offers a range of marine solutions for the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region. The company says its mission is to “provide all-inclusive boat service and maintenance, luxury yacht charters, and to introduce exclusive yacht and boat brands to the GCC market.”

Each location in the KJM Marine network includes its own service and maintenance centre closely associated with various regional OEM suppliers.

Mohammad AlJasmi, general manager of KJM Marine, adds: “Catamarans have been rapidly gaining popularity in the region, and as the top-selling catamaran brand from the USA, Aquila has established a strong presence in the market. We are particularly excited about the release of their various ranges, especially the larger Molokai models, which are already generating a significant amount of interest from potential customers.”

KJM Marine has confirmed plans to showcase the Aquila 70 at the Abu Dhabi Boat Show in November 2023. The company will also debut the brand new Aquila 42 yacht at the Dubai Boat Show in February 2024. KJM Marine says it has already begun pre-orders for the latest 2024 model, the Molokai 47, in anticipation of high demand.
