SEAQUIL was originally commissioned in CT as BIG BEAR and spent the first 10 years on the east coast of the US. She was then sold and sailed to the Caribbean and to the west coast of the US. When on the west coast she sold again and renamed LEAU LIFE. LEAU LIFE then sailed to Fiji and back and upon her return to the US she stayed in Hawaii for 4 years with the owner living aboard. From 2010 to 2014 LEAU LIFE was then based on San Francisco Bay.
The present owner purchased her in 2014 when he took her to the White Knight Yachts in Anacortes, WA for a major refit (see description below for refit details). After the refit she was named SEAQUIL and relaunched in 2018. With her young family of 5 aboard, SEAQUIL departed Washington and sailed to Mexico then to Ecuador, Panama and Colombia. When COVID19 started, SEAQUIL sailed to Tampa, Florida where she remained for 1 year. In June 2021 and after a 7,000 mile journey, SEAQUIL arrived into Bristol, RI completing the wonderful family cruise. She is likely to stay there until she sells.
SEAQUIL is a spectacular cruising yacht with many wonderful features including her 4 sleeping cabin plan, spacious interior, generous galley, walk-in engine room, cutter rig, reasonable draft, major refit and so much more. SEAQUIL is in great shape needing nothing in the way of any major upgrades. She is a turn-key opportunity and ready to begin her new venture. Offers encouraged.
SEAQUIL went through a major refit over a 4 year period from 2015 to 2018 at the White Knight Yachts facility in Anacortes, WA. This same facility helped build the Oracle trimaran that was successful in winning the 2010 Americas Cup.
The refit included the following:
