SEA EAGLE (This complete editorial can be found at: www.yachtingmatters.com Edition 31)
Sea Eagle is a powerful 43m sloop, beautifully designed and engineered to meet her Taiwanese owner’s plans to cruise the world and participate in the occasional superyacht regatta along the way.
With her dark blue hull and “Chevy white” superstructure, the yacht is as stylish as she is performance oriented. A high-aspect carbon fibre mast towers some 57m above the water and carries upwind over 1,000 sq/m of standing sail whilst a fixed keel drawing 4.5m and a displacement of just on 200 tons ensures a thrilling ride under sail.
Well-positioned sightlines from the twin helm stations offer a
commanding view of the uncluttered deck and sail plan. For
guests an adjoining cockpit keeps everyone socially connected under
sail or at anchor. A unique awning covered ‘tea deck’ & dining area
provides the perfect place for outdoor dining or shaded seating
under sail or at anchor.
An added feature of Sea Eagle is the aft ‘beach’ deck. Two steps lower than the main deck the transom opens out to reveal a large swim platform and full-beam staircase where ‘beach’ and platform become a water lover’s playground. A 5.2m Castoldi jet tender can be deployed from the transom garage by way of an hydraulically lowered ramp, providing the ideal launch pad for a day of water skiing or diving.
No less impressive is Sea Eagle’s interior design by Rhoades Young. Quietly grained French walnut sets the backdrop for white oak floors, upholstered wall panels and birch wood accents for a calming, low-key and sophisticated ambience. Forward of the awning-covered centre cockpit with upholstered seating, the main cockpit and entrance to the main deckhouse salon are shaded by the generous
Surrounded by large wrap-around windows and flooded with natural
Light the spacious deckhouse features a cosy conversation zone and a dining area for a full complement of guests as well as the interior helm position for navigation during inclement weather.
Reinforcing his trust in the shipyard, Sea Eagle’s owner, Dr. Samuel Yin has offered his full support by making his yacht available for
presentations at various worldwide yachting events, including his home waters in South East Asia. Viewed by Royal Huisman as a huge honour, this opportunity allows the yard to demonstrate around the world what the brand represents.
