Eagle 54: A true daysailer designed with shorthanded cruising in mind
The Eagle 54
In 2017 the Eagle 54 was introduced. Since than the 54 can already be spotted sailing in Europe, the United States and New Zealand! The Eagle 54 is designed in close cooperation with Hoek design. The 54 will offer the same spacious cockpit as the Eagle 44, but where the Eagle 44 is a true daysailer, the 54 will provide more for a longer stay onboard.
Needless to say that with size comes more speed and comfort. As you would expect from Leonardo Yachts there are no compromises on beauty and elegance in the design. The 54 has elegant, classic lines with modern features and a modern underwater ship.
The boat is designed with shorthanded cruising in mind. There are two interior options, one with the galley and the heads located near the cabin entrance and the other with the heads and galley located more forward. This second layout features two additional pilot berths. Both layouts feature a grand saloon with the owners berth located near the bow.
As the 54 will be a semi custom boat owners can decide upon the interior styling. Standard the interior is bright white with beautiful crafted teak joinery details.
For ease of handling the jib winches are 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. A captive winch below decks allows the main sheet to be trimmed with the push of a button.
Also the power head sail furler is below deck. The standard rigging features a carbon mast with an in-boom furling mainsail. The boom-vang and back-stay are easy to control from the helm on the hydraulic panel.
