Aquila has joined the ranks of the big offshore-capable power catamarans with the 47 Molokai. The double-step cat hull design boasts carbon-fiber forward and aft main bulkheads for enough structural
strength and rigidity to handle up to four 400 hp outboards. The high tunnel clearance of this center-
console cat creates an air cushion and is designed to reduce hull noise when fishing and trolling. The deck is level and provides 360 degrees of walk-around space. A forward platform grants elevation when cast-netting for bait to fill the twin 42.5-gallon transom livewells. There are 180 gallons of middeck in-sole fish-box capacity and two 74-gallon forward coffin boxes. Port and starboard side doors ease boarding and hauling aboard big fish. A console sliding door at the helm area offers access to the 47 Molokai’s cabin, with a queen berth and an enclosed head with a shower. Expansive hullside windows provide cabin illumination and a view of the water. The hardtop integrates stylishly with the full-height windshield, protecting two rows of helm seating that can accommodate up to seven crewmembers.
