Aquila 44's take the Whitsundays by storm

In as little as 12 months, Cumberland Charter Yachts, the parent company to Luxury Yachts Whitsundays, have welcomed their second Aquila 44 power catamaran into their fleet this week, making them the only bareboat company in the country that holidaymakers can charter one through.

The Aquila 44 was first launched at the Miami Boat Show in America in 2014 and went on to win the Active Interest Media (AIM) Editor’s Choice Award for ‘Best Multihull’ in the same year, highlighting boatbuilding achievements, innovative technology, and design.

Working closely with Multihull Central, Cumberland Charter Yachts welcomed their first Aquila 44 into the fleet in February 2017 and has been well received by people looking for large, luxurious vessels of choice to experience whilst bareboating in the Whitsundays.

General Manager, Sharon McNally said demand for the Aquila 44 was strong therefore a second Aquila 44 was required. It offers customers a whole new level of luxury, space, and comfort. It also provides more choice through our Luxury Yachts Whitsundays’ brand.

“Having the only two Aquila 44’s in the country available for charter positions Cumberland Charter Yachts as industry leaders providing a unique luxury offering to those who are new or seasoned bareboat charterers.” Said Sharon.

“It’s a brilliant addition to our luxury yacht fleet. They’re extremely popular charter vessels in the Caribbean and we hope to keep expanding the fleet to meet the needs of those looking for premium choices”

Brent Vaughan from Multihull Central is very pleased to see yet another Aquila 44 in the Whitsundays with Cumberland Charter Yachts, reflecting the brand’s position as the world leader in power catamaran production.

“The Aquila represents the absolute ultimate in luxury bareboating holidays and the design lends itself perfectly to the cruising waters of the Whitsundays,” said Brent.

“It has three large entertaining areas and very spacious accommodation, something that you would normally only see on a 60-foot motor cruiser, but with more stability”

Cumberland Charter Yachts are a multi award-winning company and have been operating for 30 years from Abell Point Marina in the Whitsundays, offering bareboat holidays on sailing yachts, sailing catamarans and power catamarans across a fleet of 28 vessels.


Another Aquila 44 joins the fleet

In March 2017, the Aquila 'Sunrise' joined the Luxury Yachts Whitsundays fleet and has been on charter consistently since. Due to popular demand for its luxurious interior, amazing outdoor and entertaining area as well as the demand for power catamarans for a bareboat charter, Luxury Yachts Whitsundays are welcoming a second Aquila 44 to the fleet in March 2018. Aptly named 'Champagne Sunset', she will be the perfect addition to accompany the Aquila Sunrise as a luxury charter option in the Whitsundays.

With 2 Aquila 44 vessels in the fleet make Luxury Yachts Whitsundays the only charter company in Australia you can hire one through, to experience the sheer beauty and comfort of this powercat. From the moment you step on board, you're impressed by the aft deck entertaining area with lounge seating and BBQ. From the centrally located galley is a large window that folds out, converting into a breakfast bar bringing the outdoors in and connect the aft deck to the galley. The adjoining spacious saloon features a large table with plenty of seating and offers 360-degree views to the outside. Each cabin boasts a queen size bed and private ensuites, with air-conditioning. 

The upstairs flybridge has another entertaining area with lounge seating including a small fridge and BBQ cooktop. An evolution of classic boating traditions where efficiency in design and performance compliment her luxurious living, the Aquila 44 is a boat like no other.
