Once again, proud to be appointed the Central Agent for the 2002, Swan 77, AQUILA. AQUILA, previously named CYGNUS MONTANUS II, has been owned by the present owner for close to four years. In that time AQUILA has sailed between the Caribbean and New England following the seasons. AQUILA has also been a successful charter yacht, in the US as well as the Caribbean, when the owner has elected not to be aboard. Recent upgrades include new North Sails main and genoa, standing rigging, generator, refrigeration, batteries and some electronics. AQUILA was originally built with shallower than standard draft to allow access to more cruising grounds around the world and an extended transom to provide even more storage space in the lazarette. Attractively priced, offers are encouraged.
