    About ThreeQuartersFull

    ThreeQuartersFull is a beautiful 4 cabin/4 head Aquila 48, offering guests a comfortable and well-equipped powercat for bareboat charter. 

    With a 23-foot-6-inch beam, the Aquila 48 has a spacious salon with a dining table and wraparound settee, plus a galley with every required amenity including a Kenyon induction cooktop for flame-free safety.  There is also a large couch to starboard, creating a forward seating/dining area that can accommodate all members of your charter group.

    The galley on ThreeQuartersFull is conveniently located to the aft and includes a two-burner cooktop, electric grill, fridge/freezer drawers and a separate second fridge.  The Aquila 48 offers a one-of-a-kind design, as the large window in the aft can be raised to create an indoor-outdoor feel between the aft deck and galley.   There are two bar stools on the aft deck, creating the perfect spot to enjoy a cocktail or snacks alfresco. 

    On the aft deck, custom hydraulic davits make launching the included, 12′ dinghy with 15hp outboard, as easy as pushing a button. Even better, a lowering transom platform between the hulls can be above water to make boarding the tender easy, or it can be lowered to become a water-level “beach” for swimming.

    The flybridge, which is immense, has another dining area aft with a folding table, shaded by a fiberglass hardtop. This top extends forward to cover the centerline helm featuring a Raymarine GPS, chart plotter and autopilot. On each side of the helm console are sun pads that double as seating. Behind the four-wide helm bench seat is an outdoor galley and wet bar with sink, electric barbecue grill and fridge.  The Aquila 48 is also uniquely designed with stairs that lead from each side of the flybridge directly to the foredeck, making for easy access for picking up mooring balls. 

    There is another great recessed seating area on the foredeck.  On ThreeQuartersFull, just open a door from the salon and step into a forward cockpit, shaded by the flybridge overhang and complete with wraparound seating and a folding table for enjoying sundowners.

    ThreeQuartersFull has 4 guest cabins, all with queen-sized beds and en-suite heads with separate showers.   The two aft cabins also have the ability for the queen to split into two twin beds, if preferred.   For groups of 9 or 10, the salon dining room table lowers and there is an insert that can be put place to convert the salon table to a bed. 

    ThreeQuartersFull is a great yacht for 4 couples, as there are four double cabins, each with its own head.   The two aft cabins can also be set with two twin beds (if guests prefer) instead of having two doubles.   The Aquila 48 was designed for maximum privacy,  with no cabin on ThreeQuartersFull sharing a bulkhead with another cabin, and each cabin has a private head with a full-size shower stall.

    Power for the Aquila 48 is from a pair of 330-horsepower Volvo Penta D6 diesels with V-drives that push the boat to a shade over 20 knots.  ThreeQuartersFull is also equipped with a Northern Lights 16.5kw generator. 

    *A one-day on water check-out is required your first day, and is included in the charter rate*

"Better Than We Could Have Ever Imagined"

From the planning stage to last day of our trip, we could not have asked for any better experience. Alexia and crew were wonderful to deal with.

Amazing customer service. Highly recommend VCY ahead of the other two big companies on the island with very little customer service.
