Aquila has been owned by the same owner for 29 years and is only her second owner. They purchased her to enjoy with their kids as they were growing up, now it is just the two of them and they are looking to downsize.
History notes from the owner:
"With every older boat, there is good and there is bad. With this boat, it is mostly good. The hull and rudder are perfect, the deck is solid, and the engine is magnificent. I bought the boat in 1993 from the original owner. It had blisters and some deck delamination. So I took it immediately to Mark Lennox in Rock Hall, Md., who everyone told me was the guru of blister repair. He peeled the bottom and rebuilt it all in vinylester resin. He gave me a 10 yr warranty but smiled and said "it's jut a formality--- the boat will never have another blister". He was right. The bottom has been perfect all these years. I've always used good, high copper content ablative paint.
I waited on the deck repair until the end of the 1995 sailing season. That winter Lennox removed everything fastened to the deck, rebuilt the entire deck (re-cored a few areas), spray-painted everything (flawlessly), and re-installed all the hardware (adding larger winches, which have made a big difference.

Traditional interior layout for a center cockpit vessel of this size. Starting forward is the guest cabin with V-berth followed by the head to starboard and hanging locker to port. Next moving aft is the Main Salon. The layout here has been slightly customized. Where she originally had a fore and aft facing dinette on starboard, the owner has converted it to a straight settee that can pull out to create an addition double berth. He also created a custom bulkhead mounted teak table that folds down, meets with the mast and has a drop leaf for dining on both sides of the salon. When the table is attached to the bulkhead the whole salon feels very open and roomy. Settee to port with storage behind. Aft to port is a huge L-shaped navigation station. To starboard is the L-shaped galley that also leads to the engine compartment and the aft Master Stateroom.
The aft master stateroom is very accommodating with large V-berth (some owners have converted the berth to a double berth). Drawers under the berths, large hanging locker, and enclosed head with sink and shower combination.
Her interior is light and bright. The bulkheads are wood grain formica with teak trim throughout. Many people have painted the formica to give it the "Herreshoff" look. Perforated vinyl headliner looks good. The main and sleeping cabins are carpeted, teak and holly ply in the navigation area, galley and hallway to aft cabin. Teak lines the inside of the trunk cabin adding to the warmth below. All opening ports and multiple hatches lend to great ventilation throughout the vessel. There is indication that some of the ports have leaked, it would be time to re-bed or replace the plastic opening ports.

The water has always been a part of my life since learning to sail aboard a Sailfish while vacationing in Chatham, Massachusetts. At twelve, I graduated to Penguins and 420’s at the Tred Avon Yacht Club in Oxford, Maryland. My parents always belonged to the Corinthian Yacht Club in Philadelphia and I often accompanied them on cruises aboard a Hinckley Bermuda 40 that we cruised in the Chesapeake.
Understanding banking after working 12 years for Loyola Savings and Loan of Maryland, I helped navigate the purchase of a 32’ Pearson Vanguard for a friend and taught him to sail. Loving the idea of sharing my passion for boating, I joined Oxford Boatyard Yacht Sales (in what is now Safe Harbor Oxford Boatyard and Marina) in 1990 and worked as a broker for fifteen years.
In 1993, Oxford Boatyard Yacht Sales became a dealer for Sabre and Back Cove Motor Yachts and I acquired an understanding and respect for powerboats. I worked closely with the boatyard commissioning new vessels and working as a liaison between new owners and the marina. I have an intimate understanding of the boat buying process - how to guide new owners through surveys, sea trials, registration, and documentation.
I love all boats and each one has its own quality. Though I would consider myself a traditionalist in boat design, I like what the new designs offer in comfort and ability.
When not talking boats, my husband (of 25 years) and I live in Easton, Maryland. My husband is the rigging supervisor at Safe Harbor Oxford Boatyard and our daughter works at the marina full time, having graduated from Washington College in 2020. She earned her Teaching Certification and is applying for a teaching position in English.
I am starting my 4th year as a broker with Brewer Yacht Sales and in addition to my office at Safe Harbor Zahniser’s in Solomon’s, Maryland I now have an office at Safe Harbor Oxford. This enables me to cover the territory from the Eastern Shore to Solomon’s Island and everything in between.
I look forward to speaking with you and sharing my passion for boats. Let me help you find the perfect yacht or support and guide you in the sale of your existing vessel!
