Aquila Yachts on Display at Singapore Yacht Show

Clearwater, FL (April 17, 2015) – Sino Eagle Yacht Company is proud to announce their participation in the 2015 Singapore Yacht Show. This is the second year that the yacht builder will be attending the show, displaying one of their newest luxury power catamarans, the Aquila 48.

Aquila Yachts represents the newest and most exciting yacht evolution on the market today offering practicality and luxury with trend setting innovation, quality and custom designs for international markets. With strong international sales in Singapore, Australia, China, New Caledonia, Cyprus, British Virgin Islands, Canada and the United States, Aquila is quickly becoming a premier choice for luxury yacht buyers around the world.

Aquila’s global growth and success can be attributed to their exceptional foresight in predicting market specific needs with customization options for worldwide consumers. Specifically, this month they are introducing the Aquila 48 Lan Kwai Fong Special Edition to the Asian market.

This yacht has been designed to appeal to the Asian buyer and answers cultural desires for their yachting lifestyle. Aptly named Lan Kwai Fong, this special edition of the Aquila 48 delivers the energetic nightlife the name depicts. The main entertaining deck includes numerous seating areas, a karaoke machine, sound system and multiple flat screen televisions. A catering galley is located in the port hull, an intimate salon in the starboard hull and two resting cabins occupy the forward areas in the lower deck. The oversized flybridge with evening lighting features, seating and a superb sound system allows the party to continue outside under the stars.

“We are very excited to return to this distinguished Yacht Show again this year. The Singapore Yacht Show has a distinct focus on the prominent, high profile superyachts that are the most glamorous motor yachts in the world. Our luxury customization designs create an unparalleled luxury power catamaran for international consumers, making our yachts a natural fit for the show attendee’s discerning tastes” said Frank Xiong, CEO of Sino Eagle Group.

Construction of Aquila power catamarans began in 2012 through a partnership between Sino Eagle Group and MarineMax, the world’s largest power boat retailer. Then through collaboration with development, design and manufacturing firms including J&J Design Group and Seaway, the team set out to develop a new, purebred power cat unlike anything in the marketplace today.

This evolution in power catamarans, a fusion of European, American and Asian innovation includes 38’, 44’ and 48’ models bringing an entirely new perspective to the private ownership and charter markets, and is quickly becoming the choice of the world’s leading Marine charter and boating lifestyle companies.

Aquila Yachts will be on display throughout the show at berth B07.
