Before setting foot aboard Aquila, the view from the dock is spectacular! The flowing lines of the 41 Irwin Center Cockpit Ketch are immediately evident, and she is wonderfully beamy, hence the vast living space below decks. Sought after the world over, you can find these Irwins in all of the cruising grounds around the world. Their reputation as a solid, reliable blue water boat is well known. 

Aquila has newer custom canvas, all the necessary deck gear/hardware (with more at owners house), and plenty of space for easy cruising. Even though she is a 41, it feels more like you’re on a much larger vessel when moving around the decks. The large center cockpit allows for plenty of company for the helmsman during afternoon happy hour, and also allows for the large aft master stateroom. 

Aft of the cockpit, you will find the heavy duty custom stainless dinghy davits to hang your RIB from whilst underway, and the mizzen mast, equipped with running backs stays. On anchor, the mizzen can be also hoisted to steady the vessel. The new dodger was expertly crafted by a local company, and provides good spray protection to those relaxing in the cockpit while under sail.  She’s also has a privacy cover over the dodger for a little seclusion while sitting at the dock. Atop the cockpit coming, you will find the two speed self-tailing primary winches, Maxwell 28’s and also the secondary winches, the Lewmar 16’s. Most of the working gear/tackle (blocks etc) are Harken.

Moving forward of the cockpit, one finds a foredeck that has plenty of space to work with. You will also find a large new Lofrans Windlass and footswitches.  Forward of the windlass, there is a large bowsprit, and a Profurl headsail furling system. Yes, the bowsprit has more than enough real estate for you and your honey to do the Titanic impression, most likely while under sail too! The bowsprit is aluminum tubing with teak decking attached and houses the anchor roller too. Back in the cockpit and just before you descend into the salon, you will see above the companionway, the sailing instrument cluster. Down the broad stairs and into the salon with its teak and holly sole, and huge amount of seating. This is one of the most spacious salons on a 41 you’ll ever see!! Definitely a salon for entertaining or relaxing with the family. There is the large L shape settee to port which seats 4-5 comfortably, and the stbd side settee which seats 2-3.  Speakers are set around the salon/galley/nav station areas to provide good sound from the stereo system. Between the portlights, overhead deck hatches, and open companionway there is a lot of light let into this salon. Gives it a great open feel, not one of those dark and gloomy salons.

The galley is set to stbd and aft of the salon. With its ample refrigeration, dual stainless sinks and propane three burner stove and oven, the chef can prepare hearty meals for all of the crew after a good day of sailing. Storage and countertop space is good, with added areas of the shelf over the sinks, the fridge/freezer tops, and the area over the engine space. Forward into the v-berth area, and you find the head and shower to port. This boat only has the one head, as the aft head, en-suite to the master, was turned into a workshop complete with bench and vice etc. Apparently it can be returned to a working head quite easily. To the stbd side of the head, there is a large hanging locker, for stowing jackets etc. The v-berth itself is good size, and will comfortably sleep two. There’s also good access to the chain locker, and storage under the berth.

Back through the spacious salon, and you have engine and generator with ample access on centerline, and to stbd the nav center/chart table with all the electronics. Aft of the nav station is the master stateroom with queen size berth. The master is very comfortable and has good amounts of storage and easy access to the aft side of the engine, gearbox and shaft seal etc. The deck hatches and portlights let in good light here too. The aft head, like previously mentioned is now a workshop, and also houses the new Magnum Inverter.

All in all, Aquila is a lot of boat for a 41, and would love a new owner to take her cruising, or make her a roomy liveaboard. Call the listing broker now to schedule a viewing. Located in a gated marina close to downtown Portland.
