Aquila Power Catamarans hosted the world premiere of its 42 Yacht at the Miami International Boat Show in mid-February.

The Aquila 42 Yacht has multiple layouts and is a perfect option for someone looking for a pocket cruiser; in the standard configuration, there are two staterooms and a utility cabin. Three- and four-stateroom versions are also available.

Owners also have a choice of engines from Volvo Penta. Aquila says the 42 Yacht is designed for cruising as well as entertaining. There are three outdoor spaces to get the party started.

“Our international Aquila team worked with the famous French VPLP designers to bring this amazing power catamaran to the market, using computational fluid dynamics and finite element analysis to enhance the performance and comfort at sea,” Lex Raas, president of Aquila Power Catamarans, stated in a press release. “As well as partnering with European Chedal Anglay for a modern interior design, incorporating our Aquila Yachts DNA of bulbs, walkway from the flybridge, opening aft bar, patented dinghy crane, patented swim ladder, largest panoramic cabin windows in class and our standard CE Category A certification, all culminating in a 42-foot power catamaran unrivaled in the world.”

What other models did Aquila have on display at Miami? The 28 Molokai, 32 Sport, 36 Sport, 44 Yacht and 54 Yacht.
