In addition to design elegance and speed, the performance of the Eagle 36 is further enhanced by the use of modern materials. The hull is made of GRP with a foam core, which makes it light and stiff. The teak deck is very strong and durable, while the cockpit also features a teak wood flooring. This is all complemented by the use of mahogany varnished wood to give the Eagle 36 a well-balanced classic look & feel with minimal maintenance.
The Harken jib winches are positioned within easy reach of the helmsman who has complete control using the tiller or optional steering wheel. The furling headsail and easy hoisting system for the mainsail make singlehanded sailing possible. At the same time, the long teak benches in the cockpit mean up to eight people can comfortably come along for the ride! Light handling and good stability in combination with a self bailing cockpit will make even the most inexperienced sailors feel safe and relaxed. And the inboard sail-drive provides perfect control while manoeuvring.
