Sino Eagle Yachts Launches Aquila 48

Press Release
Monday, January 21, 2013

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

Sino Eagle is proud to announce that the first two hulls of the new, custom designed Aquila 48 power catamarans have successfully completed sea trials and have been delivered to MarineMax Vacations.


The Aquila 48 was developed to be an exceptionally comfortable cruising boat as a result of the integration of 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 worlds top talent and we are honored to have MarineMax of the USA, J&J design group of Slovenia and our own talented team in the USA and China to collaborate and bring this innovative catamaran to market”.


Our unique, state-of-the-art manufacturing process ensures that all components, including the hull and deck, bulkheads and interior modules, are resin infused using a high quality vinylester resin 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 “This time last year we shared with you the conceptual drawings of a power catamaran to be designed to elevate the boating experience of a power catamaran under 50’.  This year, we are extremely pleased to show you the final product of that concept. The Aquila 48 is poised raise the standards in the power boat charter market, and one only has to step aboard to see how this pure-bred power catamaran differentiates itself and will make MarineMax Vacations the obvious choice for a self drive or captained power charter experience in the British Virgin Islands”


With the concept first announced last year at the Miami International Boat Show, now one year later, the Aquila 48, known as 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.

Initially, the Aquila 48 will be available for charter from the MarineMax Vacations charter base in the British Virgin islands as well as in their Charter Ownership Program. Additionally, a private ownership version will be unveiled at the major Boat Shows this Fall.
