Ultra sleek deck
With halyards and the jib sheets running below the all teak deck the Eagle 54 will have an ultra sleek deck layout. For ease of handling the jib winches are positioned within reach of the helmsman. Just forward of the jib winches the two halyard winches that double as gennaker sheet winches. The halyards tails disappear neatly in the cockpit coaming. A captive winch mounted below decks allows the mainsheet to be trimmed with the push of a button. Also the powered headsail furler is mounted below deck. The standard rigging features a carbon mast with an in-boom furling mainsail. An extensive hydraulic package will allow you to adjust the jib car position, vang and backstay tension all from the helm.
Less hassle more fun
All these systems will ensure the Eagle 54 can be sailed single-handed. Sailing an Eagle should be uncomplicated fun. And with only 9 tons displacement the Eagle 54 will turn heads not only by looking beautiful but also because of her sailing characteristics.
