The only issue we have is deciding on the name. The name of a boat is very important! If anyone has any suggestions we would love to hear from them.

Andrew McLeod, Aquila Product Manager at Multihull Central, the Australian/NZ Distributors said “This is fantastic for everyone, the owner has purchased the perfect Whitsunday live aboard power cat.

Furthermore, since announcing the addition of the Aquila 44 to their fleet last month, Cumberland Yacht Charters have also confirmed they will welcome a brand new Lucia 40 sailing catamaran to their fleet in 2017.
