Aquila (Davidson One Tonner)

These photos are of the Seattle-based Davidson designed One Tonner, Aquila. The owner had previously owned the Lidgard 50 Black Sheep and then bought Aquila that was built by the Cook Brothers in Christchurch, to a similar design as Canterbury which made the New Zealand team for the 1985 Admiral's Cup. She competed in the 1986 Big Boat series, but while she was reasonably fast she was not sailed well and finished well down the results.  


  1. Changed a bit from the days of 'Rainbow 2' !!

  2. I sailed on that boat in Seattle. What a great boat!
