Leonardo Eagle 44 Overview
The Eagle 44 is designed by Dykstra Naval Architects where the designers have reaped enormous experience with recent J-class projects such as Hanuman and Rainbow. The line’s plan is equally inspired by other famous racing Js of the 1930s or perhaps the boattail speedsters of that err.
The use of modern materials and a modern keel shape has resulted in a beautiful day-sailer with an enormous cockpit.
Practical functionality and stylish design meet throughout the Eagle 44, with a fine balance between the various materials, white panels, mahogany, teak, stainless steel and luxury fabrics.
Leonardo Eagle 44 Exterior
The standard 1.35 m keel gives the Eagle 44 excellent stability while also making her shallow enough to enjoy both coastal and inland waters.
The synthesis of a lightweight foam core laminate with a modern keel & rudder configuration and powerful rig makes the Eagle 44 fast and a delight to sail.
The white Selden mast has an in-mast car system so the mainsail is easy to hoist. The furling jib is controlled directly from the helm. For those seeking more performance, a 2.00 m deep keel can be fitted. And you can also opt to have your carbon mast stepped in combination with carbon/kevlar sails and a powerful gennaker.
Top quality materials are combined with excellent craftsmanship and design throughout the Eagle 44. Standard the Eagle 44 comes with an impressive ‘ready-to-sail’ equipment package.
The mahogany/stainless steel steering wheel provides excellent control and maneuverability while sailing or using the inboard Volvo sail-drive. The winches are positioned within easy reach of the helmsman to make single-handed sailing possible.
Combined with the large teak benches and comfortable cushions, you can to take up to eight non-experienced sailing friends with you. Phenomenal stability and a self-draining cockpit will make everyone feel safe.
The cockpit features a large mahogany table with a sink and bar-box. Four large cockpit lockers provide ample of storage space.
The views over the deck as your Eagle 44 slices effortlessly through the waves add to the excitement. For the times when you wish to escape with just the two of you, the cabin features a large double V-shaped bed.
The varnished mahogany joinery and alcantare ceiling makes a classic and luxury interior. Daylight is provided through the emergency hatch which is flush mounted so as not to disturb the deck lines. The built-in toilet is out of view when not in use.
