Nordhavn 68 "Aquilla Renee"
It was quite the scene as fans gathered to cheer on the regal Nordhavn 68 in Canada earlier this week. Aquilla Renee, owned by Renee and Joe Hazelief, stood majestically over all other boats in Victoria Harbor, Victoria, B.C. The Hazeliefs, who took delivery of their boat in Florida last year, have amassed more than 10,000 miles. They left Palm Beach in spring 2015, went up and down the Eastern U.S., cruised the Caribbean, went through the Panama Canal, around Mexico, up the U.S. West Coast and into Canada.
Nordhavns typically gather crowds of excited onlookers as they arrive to a new destination. “Nordhavns are usually the queen of the marina,” said Nordhavn president Dan Streech. This past weekend was no exception, and if you look closely, you can even see a family on vacation heading down the dock to give the Nordhavn a closer look.
