The 21-metre power catamaran will be delivered to Indonesia in mid-2022

The first Aquila 70 power catamaran to be sold in Asia will be delivered to Indonesia in mid-2022.

At 21 metres, the new flagship is the biggest yacht ever launched by Aquila and had sold several units sold prior to her official premiere at the 2021 Palm Beach International Boat Show. The order book for this model is now full for the next 24 months, Aquila says.

The Aquila 70 boasts generous spaces and is engineered for comfort and range. Featuring design work by multihull design experts Morelli & Melvin Design Studio, the looks of this new Aquila boat were shaped up dramatically, thanks to the sleek exterior lines, which are meant to look like a monohull yacht in profile. Add to that the hard focus on soft touches, like leather-bound grab rails, luxury brand fixtures, touch-sensitive appliances and Italian styling and furnishings in the main salon and the cabins.

Aquila has enjoyed great success in Asia since early 2018 when Simpson Marine took on the dealership as the brand’s exclusive representative in the region. Aquila says its appeal to Asian customers is due to a wide range of models with an appealing combination of excellent features.

The Aquila 70 can reach speeds up to 27 knots

These include expansive living area volumes, good stability, smooth drive, easy handling, sleek modern designs, a strong quality of build, and high finishes along with many innovative features.

Aquila’s international sales director Yvan Emieu expands on the build process, saying: “From day one of building Aquila, we set ourselves apart by having the highest quality control possible. This started with the production facility and fibreglass building techniques using resin infusion in humidity and temperature-controlled lamination bays”.

Currently, Aquila catamarans cruise in China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand and the fleet is expanding.

“It’s an honour to represent Aquila in Indonesia and with the largest archipelago in Asia the Aquila 70 Luxury is the perfect powercat to explore this incredible part of the world. I’m excited to be working with a very technical owner on this build and combined with his specific custom modifications we are creating a very special Aquila perfectly suited to long-range cruising with his young family”, says Paul Whelan, Simpson Marine Indonesia Country manager.
