BORN TO PLAY - BUILT TO RACE
A revolutionary high performance catamaran, the Eagle Class 53 is capable of navigating at top speeds with unrivaled comfort and luxury. This ultimate weekender was conceived by professional sailors and designed by an international team of designers, engineers and naval architects. The Eagle Class 53 is equipped with the latest in foiling and Hybrid Wing technology.
Our vision is simple; to deliver the technology and performance of a competitive racing boat to the recreational sailor.
eagle class 53
The Eagle Class is designed to perform much like an America’s Cup style catamaran, with key focus on weight, foil design and safety:
The capability to foil requires the boat to be as light as possible. Achieving the lighter weight drives many decisions in our design and construction process.
The shape, efficiency, and reliability of the foils are critical to giving the Eagle Class the ability to lift out of the water, especially at extremely low wind speeds. EC 53 is capable of reaching between 25-35 knots in light wind. An automated rudder T-foil control system is included to maintain level trim of the platform in the C-foil configuration.
To increase the safety and reliability, we are using cutting edge technology to create an automated T-foil control system that increases stability and righting moment at high speeds. The rudder T-foil control system helps maintain level trim of the platform in the C-foil configuration.

The EC53 is unique in that it combines very lightweight structures with vast space on deck and great accomodations inside.
The spacious and airy cabins in each hull have a full 6'5" headroom. The five windows combined with a large hatch above each bunk give fantastic natural light and ventilation. Each cabin includes a Barcelona-style chair for lounging, a generous closet and a full length double bed at 6'8". The wet room/heads have enough room for two people with specialized features such as a custom carbon sink and lightweight Techma head. All interior components are ergonomically designed using modern and lightweight materials.
SaloonThe main saloon features a central entertainment island. The bar contains a sink, refrigerator and additional storage and can be customized to include an ice-maker and microwave. The island is flanked by bar stools and two leather settees. Most sail control lines are in the hardtop and are operated in the forward part of the deck, allowing a line-free area for guests. All the systems are contained in the same area, creating an ideal weight concentration and a clean interior.

eagle class 53 Models
The Eagle Class 53 can be custom built to suit your speed and style. All models have the option of a standard rig or Hybrid Wing.
EC 53 C-Foils, T-rudders
EC 53 Sport T-Foils, T-rudders, Autonomous Foiling Control
EC 53 Turbo T-Foils, T-rudders, Autonomous Foiling Control, stripped-down light weight racing version
The 53T is a turbo-charged version of the Eagle Class. Standard C-foils are replaced with carbon fiber T-foils creating a platform which foils at very low wind speeds and significantly increases the speed potential of the boat in medium to heavy wind conditions. The 53T also comes equipped with our fully automated foiling control system.
