29 Cascade 29 72 Aquila

Aquila has been owned by the same family her entire life. She has been cruised extensively (ten times from Portland to Alaska). The present owner is a yacht maintenance professional so the boat is in every way in excellent mechanical condition. An extensive update has left the on deck and mechanical portion of the boat in like new condition, the interior reflects years of use and with a bit of paint and decorating would complete the restoration. So Aquila is a boat ready to set sail now and be completely usable while any below deck refurbishing can be undertaken as time allows. The expensive projects are done, what remains are the finishing touches that would make this little gem a jewel that will reflect your own personal good taste. She is being sold as the owner had purchased a larger vessel.

Additional Comments: The Cascade 29 was among the earliest of fiberglass production sailboats built by Yacht Constructors of Portland Oregon. The idea was to build a yacht capable of being legally towed over the highway yet large enough to be capable of extended offshore use. The hull and deck were constructed of hand laid up fiberglass during a period that the material was relatively new. The result was an exceptionally strong overbuilt structure that has proven itself out over hundreds of thousands sea miles. The idea was to produce a basic hull and deck that could either be finished by the home builder or in some stage of completion at the factory. Most were sold as hull and deck kits, so the interior layouts and materials between individual vessels vary quite a bit. There were several hundred built and they can be found in ports all over the world. The perfect choice for someone with big plans and a limited budget.
