Yachting - The history of Aquila Power Catamarans

Construction of Aquila Power Catamarans began in 2012 through a partnership between Sino Eagle Group and MarineMax, the world’s largest power boat dealer.

 Yachting - The history of Aquila Power Catamarans

This partnership was first established when Sino Eagle Group began building the Aquila 38 specifically for MarineMax’s new charter business - MarineMax Vacations.

In 2012, experts from multiple development, design and manufacturing firms; Sino Eagle Group, J&J Design Group, Seaway and MarineMax all collaborated to expand the Aquila range by developing a new, purebred power cat.

This international team consisted of Lex Raas, a highly experienced boat developer and charter industry veteran, and J&J Design Group, who have worked on designs for Azimut, Bavaria, Beneteau, Dufour, Jeanneau and Monte Carlo.

J&J Design Group's development arm, Seaway, was also well known for its innovative engineering and tolling work and partnering with some of the world's largest boat brands as well. This highly regarded group began the process of designing the first true Aquila Power Catamaran, the Aquila 48.

To position itself to become a prominent boat builder, Sino Eagle Group, recognized globally in high-tech composite manufacturing, built a new factory which provided the Aquila brand with full in-house manufacturing capabilities paired with in-depth knowledge and experience in advanced yacht building practices.

With the combined knowledge and advanced experience of a major specialist in boat developement, Aquila is aiming to establish a new standard of power catamaran innovation and becoming the game changer in the marketplace.

On this market, Aquila faces competitors such as Sunreef Power, Fountaine Pajots MY, Lagoon, Leopard Catamarans and soon Bali Catamarans.

To Note - Sino Eagle Group is brand owner of Aquila Power Catamarans, and one of the only Chinese boat builders and yacht manufacturers which offers in-depth knowledge and experience in advanced yacht building practices and full in-house manufacturing capabilities.
