The AQUILA is a 1990 model Sabre 34-2 Targa with the Wing Keel option with a draft of 4'6". This model was produced by SABRE YACHTS of South Casco, ME from 1988 through to 1991. The last production hull number was "430" with the AQUILA being number "402". Earlier versions were known as the "SABRE 34 Mk II Aft-Cabin".

The AQUILA has been owned by her present Owners for the past 25 years. She's been locally stored & maintained & operated in our Stamford, CT area during their tenure of ownership. The AQUILA has been well-maintained over the years and upgraded as well as a review of the Listing will certainly indicate. Given the market popularity for the SABRE 34-2 as demonstrated over the years, and the overall condition of the AQUILA, it's highly-recommended not to delay in moving forward with this fine example of a popular sailing yacht. The AQUILA has such desirable upgrades as propane vis CNG for the stove, a MACK PACK to manage the mainsail, a MAXWELL electric anchor windlass, a dodger & Bimini, upgraded GARMIN electronics to include radar .. "and more".
