Aquila Power Catamarans has introduced its largest family-oriented cruising boat, the Aquila 54. The new model enhances onboard luxuries with full-size refrigeration, abundant counter space, signature outdoor serving and entertaining bar, architectural stairs, water maker, washer and dryer, and many more desirable cruising comforts. Layouts include three, four, and five-cabin options and modern "galley-down" configuration plus skipper's quarters.
"The list of standard features aboard the 54 will impress anyone familiar with vessels of this size," said Aquila President Lex Raas. "Performance will allow for high-speed travel and slower, more efficient, extended cruising ranges. The exceptional approach to hull design employed by the Aquila design team allows identification of the optimum engine package for the vessel while building and exacting lifting, sea keeping, and planing characteristics for the ultimate efficiency in hull design and on-board comfort."

The Aquila 54 has sweeping lines and a dramatic bow with wave-piercing bulb technology. Amenities include full-size refrigeration, an outdoor serving and entertaining bar, architectural stairs, a watermaker, and a washer and dryer. Layouts include three-, four- and five-stateroom options, as well as a galley-down configuration, plus skipper’s quarters. The boat is available with an open flybridge with a tempered-glass windscreen, or with an enclosed, climate-controlled space. A walkaround Portuguese bridge should provide visibility and easy access to the foredeck.
The galley-down option converts the space from the fifth stateroom, allowing the salon to take on a formal dining layout with a seating lounge. The transit windows in the full-beam master stateroom provide panoramic views. In the salon, panoramic tempered-glass side windows add to the relaxation ambience. In the cockpit, the dining area is adjacent to an indoor/outdoor bar. The space includes a table with chairs.
Beyond the gated transom openings is a swim platform that will support a tender with a concealed davit system. A passerelle is optional. Standard propulsion is a pair of 480-hp Volvo Penta D6 diesels. According to the builder, top speed should be in the high-20-knot range.
