For Sale: Aquila 54 Power Catamaran | Yachting (1)

For cruisers looking for a power catamaran ready for voyaging adventures, there is Liquid, a 2021 Aquila 54. This power cat is capable of entertaining 30 guests and sleeping 10 (or more). Liquid has a reported top-end speed of 22 knots, a cruising speed of 15.5 knots and a range of almost 1,000 nautical miles at 7.8 knots. Liquid just came on the market and is asking just under $2.17 million.

“The 54′s interior has square footage that’s roughly the same as a 68- to 70-foot monohull. It’s also a smartly designed space: The co*ckpit has a table for alfresco dining, as well as three stools at a bar that connects to the galley inside via an opening window and door. Thanks to the boat’s 25-foot beam, the main deck effectively turns into one vast social area. Add the salon’s seating, 360-degree banks of windows and 6-foot-9-inch headroom, and the area feels more like a waterfront condo than a boat,” as reported in Yachting.

Liquid’s flybridge can be accessed by two sets of stairs. The main access point is from the aft deck, but a second set of stairs from the fore deck also leads up to the flybridge. The Portuguese-style flybridge, with a walkaround forward of the windscreen, is enclosed and has two electrically operated hatches in the hardtop. Guests can relax in the air-conditioned space with a leather settee and table that seats nine, or on the aft deck, which is partially shaded by the hardtop. The electric BBQ, fridge, sink and ice maker on the aft deck allows owners to easily entertain guests up here.

The flybridge offers everyone panoramic views and opening the sliding glass doors, sunroof and windows creates an open-air vibe. The captain has clean sightlines and twin Volvo Penta D6 diesel engines that push Liquid up to that top speed of 22 knots. The aforementioned 15.5 knots is a comfortable cruise speed, and dialing it back to around 7 knots will extend Liquid’s range to to around 1,000 nautical miles. Two bow thrusters, a Dockmate wireless controller and back-up cameras help with close-quarters maneuvering.

Liquid has a large foredeck with sun pads and forward-facing cushioned seats with cup holders for guests looking to enjoy sundowners and a view. Up a few steps, there is direct access to the flybridge. The co*ckpit has a Flexi teak sole shaded by the flybridge overhang. Forward-facing cushioned seats with a table and chairs, along with two stools at the wet bar, will seat multiple guests during a coastal cruise. Lower the tender for an excursion to a private beach, or take a dip off the swim platform. Open a glass door and the galley window, the lines between inside and outside entertaining disappear.

One of my favorite features on Liquid is the aft-galley arrangement. Centrally located, owners can easily entertain guests in the salon, aft deck and flybridge. It’s set up with stain-resistant Corian countertops, a stainless-steel sink with cover, a central island with stowage and a slide-out garbage bin. Three-burner propane cooktop, oven and a dedicated microwave storage location with outlet makes for easy meal prep. A double-door fridge/freezer keeps cold goods fresh and an array of cabinets and drawers offer space to stow galley accessories.

Forward on the main deck is the salon, which benefits from sizable windows with external overhangs, offering excellent visibility and reduced direct sunlight. Set the mood with overhead LED lights, LED mood lighting, LED courtesy lighting and wall-mounted LED lights. Eight guests can be seated on a portside settee with table or a starboard side sofa. Opening the glass door to the aft deck and galley window increases ventilation in the salon and it allows guests to easily mingle between the spaces. Need some additional room for a few overnight guests, the salon furniture converts into two single berths.

After a long day on the water, owners and guests can retire to one of five staterooms. The master stateroom has a king-sized berth with an ensuite head and is located forward on the main deck. Natural light flows in from windows on three sides, creating a cozy environment for the owners. The ensuite head has his-and-hers sinks, a shower. Two guest staterooms with ensuite heads are located in each hull. Liquid was also outfitted with captain and crew quarters. When not in use, owners can use the extra space for stowage, or stuff a few extra teenagers aboard for the evening.

“The award-winning Aquila 54 power catamaran delivers a world-class cruising experience with the highest CE Class A rating for recreational open ocean capability. Liquid is durably constructed and features Aquila’s signature Portuguese bridge deck with full walkaround enclosed climate-controlled bridge helm and lounge. This sumptuously appointed catamaran yacht is ideally designed for long range cruising in a variety of sea conditions and for entertaining, with multiple social areas that are loaded with amenities. Liquid is configured with the optional aft captain’s quarters, but she can easily be handled by an owner operator. Main deck extends forward for a full-beam master suite, while guests are accommodated in private starboard and port hull en-suite staterooms. Unique bulbous bows developed by Aquila in 2016, provide a seaworthy, comfortable, and fuel-efficient ride, like no other cruising catamaran yacht!” MarineMax Yachts stated.

Where is Liquid located? The yacht is currently lying in St. Petersburg, Florida.
