Below decks
Aquila had a majour overhaul in 2009 and is fully furnished for comfortable charter cruises. The interior is light and airy, with lots of whites and nice wooden trimmings..

The yacht features two very large triple cabins with en-suite bathroom and shower facilities. One double cabin is located in the aft section of the main hull and has a separate entrance as well. One large double bed is located at the bow of the boat. They have a shared bathroom, shower. All toilets are electric and household size. All cabins are well-ventilated with big 220V electric fans and opening hatches. Being a trimaran with cabins in 3 different hulls, Aquila offers her guests lots of privacy.

Inside you find the galley and covered dining-reading area connecting to a separate deck house where the helm station and another single berth is located.

Above decks Aquila is very spacious with her three separate hulls and wide decks. The netting between the hulls make a great place to relax during passages, read your book, or perhaps take an after lunch nap ....
On the main deck coach roof you find an airy lounge/seating area, with ample coverage from the sun. A great place for open air lunches end afternoon sun downers with a 360 view of the exclusive beauty of our Asian waters.

The diving platform is located in the back of the yacht, with a separate area for kitting up dive gear.

Access to the warm tropical sea is easy and comfortable: aft stairs lead to a sea level swim platform with a retractable swim ladder for easy access.
