Owned by one family for 41 years.
Very little use since 2016 due to family illness.
Aquila lifted out annually latterly at Galmpton and Baltic Wharf,
Serviced and regularly maintained.
Reason for selling:
A reluctant sale but due to owners’ health and age reality has to be recognised. No other family members able to take over necessary commitment.
This boat has served us well. A classic craft with a very new owner and funds to update sails and possible rigging would, I believe, enable her to continue for many years to come.
