A Power Cat Dream
“When we arrived in Tortola we had already discussed our expectations with a MarineMax Vacations consultant who planned an itinerary based on our family’s interests and wishes. After an orientation we discovered that the boat was perfectly clean, fully provisioned and ready to go,” expressed Bruce Cooley. “We found the Aquila 48 remarkably stable and easy to operate. Another thing we liked is there was so much space that we never felt crowded or in each other’s way.”
“With the great experiences with MarineMax Vacations and researching other power catamaran brands it was obvious to us that the new Aquila 44 was our family’s best choice,” Bruce Cooley offered. “The full-width master with centerline king-size bed and large port and starboard guest staterooms all with en-suite heads, we can have the kids or adult friends stay onboard with total privacy.”
“Harry and Raul could not have been more helpful spending countless hours making our Aquila 44 the boat for our family vacations. They were fantastic.” continued Bruce Cooley. “During the customization we came up with the perfect name, Cool Change, like the song that the Little River Band made famous.”
Living outside New Orleans, in Mandeville, Louisiana, the Cooley’s planned to leave the boat in a marina in Fort Lauderdale for a couple of months and then, in stages, explore the Florida Keys, the Tortugas, the Bahamas and beyond.
“Some say ‘the fun is in the planning.’ I would say, ‘part of the fun is in the planning.’ And during the time between sailings, we will be dreaming and planning the next adventure. I would also say that the most fun is in the doing, getting out there and experiencing all that there is for fun on the water. Our family started out on a dream vacation and ended up with a lifetime of future adventures of discovery, quite a cool change.” concluded Bruce Cooley.
