Aquilon 26
-"A trailerable performance cruising catamaran"

NEWS RELEASE - 8/1999

The AQUILON 265

 A new model for the Millennium! 

We choose to call this new model "made in the America" the AQUILON 265, because there are so many improvements, changes and additions in this US built Aquilon that it is truly a new generation. This newborn 265 is our third generation and the twenty-fifth Aquilon to date. Paul Stanek, Naval Architect. 

The F175 Rotating wing mast engineered by Paul Stanek and first made by "Sparcraft Performance" is now refined and supplied by "Charleston Spar" (NC) as well as the Aft, Central, Forward & longitudinal beams. 

For even better performance:
- Dacron or Mylar computer-designed & cut sails from "Calvert Sails" (FL)
- You have the option of a set of Crosscat Dacron mainsail and self-tacking jib. or..
- a more powerful "Cruise Mylar" option: "Square tp" tri-radial main & tri-radial self tacking jib.

- A tri-radial Screecher or Gennaker & a new, bigger, Screecher/Gennaker sheet winch (2 speed).

The new trampoline is a "coated polyester mesh" from "Sunrise Yacht Products" (FL) guaranteed 3 years.

In the starboard hull the main changes are:
- A new marble tone counter top in the galley with cherry wood trim and cabinet doors, all with flush, "chrome-plated brass" push-pull latches.
- A larger icebox increased to 3 cu.ft. (Optional LK33 "thermo electric" refrigeration system),
- A new 3.25 cu.ft aerated vegetable box, top opening, in the fwd portside corner of the galley,
- A new, good size "silverware" drawer under the stainless steel sink, as needed in a real galley,
- A new 13 cu.ft. cabinet space for pots and pans, fitted between the stove and the ice box,
- A US: 2 burner gas stove, thermocouple valves & UL/CGA listed high-pressure hose assembly,
- A drop leaf reducing the width of the sherry wood dining table (5 coats of polyurethane varnish).

- And we install maintenance free "Stratifil" teak and holly cabin sole using their top quality choice. 

In the portside (owner's) hull the main changes are:
- A longer double bed (by 6", now 6' 6").
- A drawer at the foot of the double bed.
- A three level cherry wood bookshelf between the bed and the companionway.
- Cherry wood bulkhead and door to the head with stainless steel mortise latch (handles) set.
- Marble tone sink counter top and four small shelves outboard side (for soap, shampoo, sponge...).
- A hanging closet (18'' deep, 2.5' wide), forward of the head (head, sink, mirror, stand up shower). 

In the cockpit: In addition to the new:
- Waterproof, fiberglass "NavPod" to mount electronic instruments and the
- 3 "removable" standard, teak-slated benches comfortably seating 10 people...

We have added the following options for cruisers and racing sailors alike:
- A voluminous well insulated ice box (R10), in the central cockpit locker,
- A polyethylene (or teak Grate) On-Off cockpit table that stores in the starboard cockpit locker.
- A custom-built "classic" hand tiller system (Aft cockpit center line), freeing the transom steps.

We then refined the optional 12-foot wide Bimini with three 1" stainless steel frames. It covers the whole cockpit, has forward windshield, clear side panels and a choice of aft enclosures. A true "Soft top" Salon.

Our Standard Inventory takes 3 pages to describe a very well equipped Aquilon, nothing standard about it!
