Leonardo Yachts is proud to announce that they will be showing their Eagle 54 at Yachting Festival Cannes with takes place from 11-16th of September 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.
