LISTING SHEET

Now available on the golden anniversary of her launching, AQUILA JOVIS is a classic raised pilothouse Burger motor yacht. Designed by noted marine architect, Weston Farmer, she epitomizes the beauty, elegance and the blue-water seaworthiness that have made Burger yachts legendary.

Where most vessels of her size are considered large boats, Burgers of her era are more justifiably considered small ships. This vessel was the first Burger owned by a celebrated Palm Beach yachtsman who sailed her to Alaska and back. (The logs of that epic voyage are still onboard.) A later owner took her to the headwaters of the Mississippi.

Her Cummins T-12 naturally aspirated commercial diesels are perfectly matched for her mass (109 tons) and semi-planning hull design. Her 5040-gallon fuel capacity give this vessel trans-Atlantic range. Unusual for vessels of her era, her original owner specified commercial-grade engines designed for tugboats (or yard switcher locomotives). They are believed to have been rebuilt once (after the Alaska voyage). Hours since that time are estimated to be less than 4000. Current owner reports no measurable oil usage. Total hours are considered to be barely past break-in when compared to their commercial counterparts.

Highlights include Furuno radar, Simrad electronics, hydraulic stabilizers, flybridge station with wing controls, bow thruster,  teak walk-around decks, swim platform, Bimini top and aft sunshade, Nautical structures davit & chocks, 15’ Nautica wide body RIB/
