The boat – Aguilar One

The Aguilar One is a 28 foot Grady White 282 Sailfish, one of the best boats in her class for cockpit space, fishability, and build quality.

This is a heavily built boat with exceptional fit and finish – the 282 Sailfish tops out at close to 30 knots with twin Yamaha 225s.

Below deck, the well-appointed cabin includes a galley with fridge, and enclosed head (toilet).
