About Les Voiles de st Tropez
Close to 4,000 sailors and more than 300 sailing yachts will gather in St Tropez in early autumn for an action-packed programme of competitive racing and lively social events.
Throughout the seven-day meet, a beautiful fleet of both modern, classic and Wally yachts will compete in a series of sailing courses off the French Riviera coast for the coveted Rolex Trophy.
Among the traditional yachts competing will be a selection from the iconic J Class fleet. The racing fixture will be the final of four major meets of an international, points-based championship for the fleet, taking place throughout 2018.
The Eagle 54 is designed in close cooperation with Hoek Design. Founded in 1986 by Andre Hoek, Hoek Design is one of the world’s leading offices for naval architecture.
The 54 has elegant, classic lines combined with modern features and a modern underwater body.
The boat is designed with shorthanded cruising in mind with a spacious and luxurious cockpit and a grand saloon with the owner’s berth located forward. As the 54 will be a semi-custom boat you can decide not only from 2 interior layouts but also the interior styling can be chosen. A traditional mahogany or teak interior is possible but also modern design is possible.
Ultra sleek deck
With halyards and the jib sheets running below the all teak deck the Eagle 54 has 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 are neatly tucked away in a practical self-draining box in the cockpit coaming. A captive winch mounted below decks allows the mainsheet to be trimmed with the push of a button as is the powered headsail furler which is also mounted below deck. The standard rigging is a carbon mast with an inboom furling mainsail. An extensive hydraulic package will allow you to adjust 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.
