A superb gentleman’s motor launch which was adopted at Cockwells Boatyard in Cornwall and renamed the Duchy 27.
The Aquila 27 is a very pretty and practical weekender, and has on more than one occasion attracted the accolade of “Prettiest motorboat on the Lymington River”
But she is no slouch; the single 200hp engine will push her to 20 knots, with her semi displacement hull keeping things on comfortable abroad. The keel and skeg provide prop and rudder protection. A comfortable cruising speed is a very respectable and economical 14 knots. With a super aft cockpit, there is plenty of room for pals to join the fun and a great little cabin to lay your head when the sun has finally set.
ALPHEUS is in first class order with low engine hours and many upgrades. She has a comprehensive inventory, as detailed below.
This is a special opportunity since this type of modern classic very rarely comes on the market. ALPHEUS is for sale only because the owner is about to retire so, given that he will have more time on his hands and will no longer be limited to weekend boating, he is buying a slightly larger vessel.
The owner has spent considerable effort to upgrade ALPHEUS. The recent upgrade includes:
The cockpit is partially covered by a fixed roof with opening hatches and side-opening windows. This allows one to enjoy the fresh air and close proximity to the water whilst at the same time being totally protected from the wind, rain and spray. The leather-covered helm and navigator’s seat have teak-capped footrests and multiple grab handles.
The current owner has also extended the aft guardrails to enhance safety.
The cabin table can also be used to convert the twin bunks into a double.
There is a hob mounted diesel 2-burner stove (no gas) which also functions as a heater, although with the recent fitting of the Eberspacher D2 this heating function is no longer needed.
