MarineMax Vacations takes delivery of the highly innovative new 48 foot Power Catamarans for their BVI charter fleet.

Sino Eagle is proud to announce the first two hulls of the new, custom designed Aquila 48 power catamarans have successfully completed sea trials and are currently being delivered to MarineMax Vacations for its BVI charter fleet.

The Aquila 48 was developed to be an exceptionally comfortable cruising boat; putting advanced technology at the forefront of all design and build decisions. From the hull shape that was fully tank tested, to the selection of materials and manufacturing process, every consideration went into creating an unprecedented, pure-bred power catamaran unlike any other in its class.

“We are thrilled with the results of the sea trials and the delivery of these first two hulls to MarineMax Vacations,” said Frank Xiong, CEO of Sino Eagle Group. “Bringing not only a new product to the market, but more importantly launching a new brand of power catamarans definitely requires the world’s top talent and we are honored to have MarineMax in the USA, J&J design group in Slovenia, and our own talented team in the USA and China collaborate to bring this innovative catamaran to market.”

The first Aquila 48s will be in the MarineMax Vacations charter fleet as a MarineMax 484. This version features 4 cabins and 4 heads, a spacious salon and galley, large flybridge and forward cockpit, as well as included upgrades.

The unique, state-of-the-art manufacturing process ensures that all components, including the hull and deck, bulkheads and interior modules, are resin infused in a fully controlled environment. This process not only has huge structural and weight advantages for the vessel, but is also the most environmentally friendly process for fiberglass yacht construction. The boat has been built to EC Certification, Category A which is the recognized International standard for recreational boats.

After delivering the first two Aquila 48’s, Lex Raas, President of MarineMax Vacations was elated. “The Aquila 48 is poised to raise the standards of the power boat charter market, and one only has to step aboard to see how this pure-bred power catamaran differentiates itself; making MarineMax Vacations the obvious choice for a self drive or captained power charter experience in the British Virgin Islands.”

The MarineMax 484 will be presented to the media and public for the first time at the 2013 Miami International Boat Show from February 14th to 18th at the Trawler Fest display on Collins Avenue.

She will be available for charter from the MarineMax Vacations base in the British Virgin Islands as well as in their Charter Ownership Program. Additionally, private ownership versions are available with various layout options and equipment upgrades. A private ownership version will be unveiled at the major boat shows this Fall.
