The march into giant center consoles for offshore fishing continues, as these fast, seaworthy catamarans become a reasonable alternative to the classic inboard sportfisher for anglers chasing marlin, swordfish and tuna far offshore.
Latest iteration is the Aquila 47 Molokai, which has a 14’7″ beam and can handle quad 600-hp Mercury outboards.
She has a 14’7″ beam, far broader than any monohull of similar size, and includes luxury features including a large air-conditioned cabin with a real queen-size bed, not a simple bunk, making extended cruises a real possibility.
Weight is 33,400 lbs.
Here’s how the website describes it:
Enjoy generous fish boxes to store your prized catches and keep them fresh throughout your journey. Ample storage to stow away personal belongings ensures a tidy deck, while advanced fishing and navigation electronics effortlessly guide you to the heart of the action on the open water.
With distinctive design and construction elements, this high-performance fishing power catamaran notably boasts a 14’7” beam and a double-stepped hull design for superior handling and stability, reduced drag, and a smooth ride even in challenging offshore conditions. Carbon fiber bulkheads add exceptional strength without compromising its lightweight profile.
But the Aquila 47 Molokai doesn’t stop there, understanding your experience on board extends beyond the thrill of fishing. Whether you choose to entertain family and friends or simply enjoy a tranquil escape, this power catamaran caters to your desires, including overnight stays. Luxuriate in the abundant seating options, take a moment to retreat and refresh in the full-sized head with shower, and rejuvenate in the queen berth after an action-packed day.
Furthermore, the Aquila 47 Molokai features a refrigerator for your favorite refreshments and an optional summer kitchen to effortlessly prepare delicious meals (or fresh catch!) while enjoying your surroundings.
