Looking for a power catamaran made for extended cruising and entertaining in stylish comfort? Water Born, a 2023 Aquila 54PC, could check off the boxes. The asking price is $2.795 million.

“The 54′s interior has square footage that’s roughly the same amount of space as a 68- to 70-foot monohull. It’s also a smartly designed space: The cockpit has a table for alfresco dining, as well as three stools at a bar that connects to the galley inside via an opening window and door. Thanks to the boat’s 25-foot beam, the main deck effectively turns into one vast social area. Add the salon’s seating, 360-degree banks of windows and 6-foot-9-inch headroom, and the area feels more like a waterfront condo than a boat”, as reported in Yachting.

HMY Yacht Sales stated, “This Aquila 54′ has just under 50 hours on her optional 550 Cummins motors. You won’t find another like her because she is the only Aquila 54 in North America with this engine option! Commissioned by an experienced owner operator, every option on this 54′ Aquila was carefully chosen to maximize the versatility of this already fantastic platform. Everything from the upgraded additional fuel tanks to the spare propellers and shafts and electric glendinning, the owner has spared no expense.”

Water Born’s flybridge can be accessed by three sets of stairs. The main access point is from the cockpit, but a second set of stairs is in the salon and a third set is found on the foredeck.

The Portuguese-style flybridge, which has walkaround room forward of the windscreen, is enclosed in glass with two electrically opening hatches in the hardtop. Guests can be entertained in the fully enclosed, air conditioned space with a leather settee and table that seats nine or go alfresco on the aft deck, which is partially shaded by the hardtop. An electric BBQ, fridge, sink and ice maker lets owners to easily entertain guests. The windows allow for panoramic views from all points. The helmsman has a 360-degree view.

Twin Cummins diesel engines will propel Water Born up to a top speed of 24 knots and an 18-knot cruise speed. Reducing the speed to around 7 knots provides a range of about 1,000 nautical miles. Two bow thrusters, a Dockmate wireless controller and back-up cameras will help captains safely and confidently dock this vessel.

Water Born‘s foredeck has sun pads and forward-facing cushioned seats with cup holders for guests looking for some fun in the sun. Up a few stairs, guests can easily access the aforementioned flybridge. The cockpit has a non-skid fiberglass sole and is shaded by the flybridge overhang. Forward-facing cushioned seats with table and chairs along with three stools at the wet bar can seat multiple guests during a coastal cruise. Open the salon’s glass door and flip-up the galley window, to for an indoor-outdoor space. 

One of my favorite features on Water Born is the aft galley. Centrally located, owners can easily entertain guests in the salon, cockpit and flybridge. The galley has durable, stain-resistant Corian countertops, a stainless-steel sink with cover, a central island with drawers and a slide-out garbage bin. A three-burner electric stovetop, oven and microwave make food prep easy. There’s also a double-door fridge/freezer and cabinets for more stowage.

The salon is forward of the galley. Shatter-proof windows with external overhangs offer excellent visibility and reduced direct sunlight. Eight guests can be seated on a settee with table to port or a sofa to starboard. Opening the glass door to the aft deck and galley window increases ventilation in the salon area and allows guests to easily mingle between the salon, galley, aft deck and flybridge. Need some additional space for a few overnight guests, the salon converts into two comfortable single beds.  

After a long day on the water, owners and guests can retire to one of four staterooms that accommodates eight guests. The main-deck master stateroom is a full-beam with king berth and ensuite head. Natural light flows in from windows on three sides of the stateroom, creating a cozy environment for the owners. The ensuite head has his-and-hers sinks and a shower. Guest staterooms with ensuite heads are located in each hull, which sleeps six additional guests. 

Where is Water Born located? The yacht is currently lying in Pompano Beach, Floirda.
