We are delighted to announce confirmation of a new power catamaran destined for BC waters & the COOPER fleet.   AQUILA power catamarans come with the leadership of industry veterans and represent a fusion of European, Asian and North American styling.

powercat
“The market has asked for exactly what has built into the Aquila Power Cat.  It fills a market void and we know that we will see more and more of this type of boat here in the Pacific Northwest. We are very pleased to be the region’s pioneers.” said Aaron Tweedy - who is taking the lead on this project within Cooper Boating.
 
Delivery of the first 44’ AQUILA power cat (shown above) is set for spring 2015 and will be displayed at the 2015 Victoria Harbour Boat Show from April 30 - May 3, 2015
