Has anyone had any experience with an Aquilon 265? I’ve done some extensive google searching and have come up with some manufacture info on the cat but not many reviews, pros/cons.

Any help would be awesome!

I googled Aquilon 26 and one of the hits was the review you posted and this was the other one. I just checked the website and it’s pretty clunky although they have listings for multi million dollar boats! The info on the 265 is probably just old dusty data that no one cleaned up, however it would still be relavant to something contemplating buying a used one.

Thanks y’all! Unfortunately I’ve see both of those, and have sifted through many many google sights on previous for sales.

there just doesn’t seem to be a lot of info for a boat that was built in the late 90s early 2000s.

Yes, what would you like to know?

There was one in the Racine Wis marina for 10 years and one at the end of dock A in Montrose Harbor for 6-8 years. I've sailed on and helped him do some minor repairs.

Allow me to chime in. I owned an Aquilon 26. In fact, I was the southeast rep for the boat. I also knew the designer and builder of the boat. The major difference between the 26 and the 265 Is that the 26 had a gennaker and the 265 had a screecher. My boat was very fast. Depending on conditions, I could outrun an F-27. And could always keep up with them
Now for the bad part. The interior of the boat was put together with bathroom caulk and the boat started to fall apart. The boat has been out of the water for years. I am having it rebuilt. There was nothing like it when I bought it and there has been nothing like it since
