Why is an Aquila a good option as a liveaboard?
Well that’s an easy one, my friend. Space may be the final frontier, but Aquila already has it mastered.
Any boat can be a liveaboard if you’re bold enough, but for Capt. Eagle’s tastes, a good catamaran is hard to beat. And the reason is the beaminess offered by a twin hull. A cat will almost always be significantly wider than a monohull of a similar length. This translates to mega-wide salons, flybridges, and bowdecks, AKA the places you’re going to actually hang out will be a lot bigger. And with space at less of a premium, stowage capacity is bigger too—with lots of room for cabinets and hanging lockers. That translates to more provisions and more wardrobe choices. Variety is, after all, the spice of life, and that goes double when life happens aboard a boat.
The other facet of liveability that makes Aquila an excellent choice is operability. Take it from me, when making like Jimmy Buffett in ports unknown, you’re going to want easy access to your sea strainers and the like. They might have cheeseburgers in paradise, but there’s no guarantee on good boat-service options. Engine rooms built for comfort are a boon for liveaboard mariners since captains take up space. And as we’ve gone over, space is, was, and always will be your very best friend when spending extended periods of time at sea.
