While the twin-hulled Aquila 44 is the smallest of the three Yacht Line craft, its credentials as a comfortable long-distance cruiser are impressive.
With a beam of 21ft 6in, the Aquila 44 is nearly 50% as wide as it is long, and that enables it to incorporate a walkaround layout with wide side decks, without restricting the open-plan design of its beamy saloon.
At the aft end of that space, a well-placed galley, with retractable partition and fold-out bar, makes excellent use of the threshold between the saloon and the cockpit.
And with a convertible saloon dinette, plus three ensuite double cabins, there’s ample space to sleep up to eight.
