An Ocean 75 ketch refitted in 2002/3 and by far the best we've ever seen. White GRP hull, deck and coachroof, teak laid deck. Her spars, adapted with Harken tracks and cars and with beautifully fashioned stainless steel hardware, glisten with flawless Awlgrip, as does her superstructure. Her interior joinery of sycamore and elm looks new. She is simply astonishing!
Owner's full width stateroom aft, plus 3 twin guest cabins and 1 x twin and 1 x single crew cabins.
Her equipment includes Volvo 180hp diesel engine, 3 x generators, bow thruster, air conditioning, water maker, Novamarine RH400 RIB with 40hp Mercury.
All spars have had close attention with removal of hardware for painting. The mainmast vang bracket is of new stainless steel to an improved design. A Harken track for luff cars has been fitted to suit the new fully battened mainsail. The beautifully crafted mizzen on-deck step serves several functions. A new addition is a stainless steel folding A-frame crutch on the coachroof which supports the boom when deployed and then folds down flat to stow. Original fittings include an anchor wash system on the bow pulpit with stainless steel water supply tubing. A small thing to mention? Not when the anchor comes up covered in mud! Electrical wiring for the running lights on the pulpit passes along a second stainless steel tube. Stainless steel strainers for deck water are flush with the teak deck, covering the scuppers which are integral within the hull. 2 large deck boxes accommodate to port the gas bottles and to strawboard general stowage. There are chocks for the tender on the foredeck.
A major feature of SAQUILA is the attention given to ventilation prior to build. This includes integral Dorade vents in the main coachroof to serve the saloon. There is other ventilation to the Master Stateroom and head/shower, crew quarters and galley, engine room and batteries. There are 8 opening windows and 9 Lewmar deck hatches.
SAQUILA's deck arrangements centre round her comfortable and well sheltered cockpit which is easy to enter from the side decks. The steering pedestal is at the aft end of the cockpit with instrument dials on a neat console. Other instrument repeaters are located beneath the sprayhood just forward of the main sliding hatch. To helm SAQUILA is a joy. Her Whitlock mechanical steering system delivers the feel which sailing is all about. Two teak decked locker lids on the aft deck open to reveal stowage space and the two Whisper generators.
SAQUILA's accommodation, thanks to an abundance of windows and hatches and the choice of the light hued sycamore and elm joinery provides an impression of space and quality. In present ownership a third twin guest cabin has been cleverly installed to port of the engine. Headroom is good throughout the yacht.
A clever and very sensible feature is the positioning of a good flashlight beneath each of three steps of the companion ladder at the main accommodation hatch. This further underlines the thought which has been put into SAQUILA and her systems.
SAQUILA is a yacht which may be bought and cruised without a need to catch up on a previous owner's maintenance "economies". She's good-looking and with a pleasing sheer line. At her price, she offers really exceptional value. We like her very much, and urge you to inspect.
