Aquador Boats 33HT

Latest reviews

As one of the most exciting launches at the London Boat Show, we didn't waste any time in getting afloat on Aquador's new flagship

The Aquador 33HT has been designed from the outset with twin engines in mind – in this case Cummins MerCruiser sterndrives complete with Axius joystick control.

The layout boasts a very inviting main cabin with a dinette-cum-lower saloon seating plan as well as two separate cabins amidships.

The same sociable arrangement below decks is echoed on deck, with room for six around the aft seating, while across the helm there is seating for three. A fair portion of the cockpit enjoys the shelter of the hardtop and the warmth of the sun through its large, opening sunroof but if the weather closes in, simply pull out the awning from the rear of the hardtop and attach the side canopies to enclose the cockpit in a matter of minutes.

Verdict: The cabin layout might have its drawbacks but there’s a lot to like about the 33, not least its hardtop-protected cockpit and Aquador’s smart and inviting fitout. If fitted with twin Volvo D4s, it would have scored a higher mark.
