Eagle 20 HF. Team Gaebler test: “Exciting!…We love it!”

eagle hf 20

World premiere for the first German Foiling catamaran.Faster than thought sails and flies the first prototype. We had the chance to test the new Eagle 20 HF on Altmuehlsee at Nuremberg on a beautiful sailing day. And we are thrilled! It’s a lot of fun and it gives a sensational feeling.Everything from Carbon (Hull, Beams, mast, boom and foils). Ultra-light (155kg total with sails) and a very stable platform (extra-wide carbon beams). This will be a modern rig with a huge code zero and / or smaller Gennacker as an option.There is a boat with two Foil / daggerboard options. First, you can fly with the new Foils over the water. On the other hand, you can simply take off the foils and sail normally with the straight daggerboard and rudder profiles.This has the advantage that in days with very light winds you continue to sail the boat without great water resistance in “non foiling mode” very fast. The giant Code Zero brings at Wind between 1-6 knots additional speed. So just as in “drag” condition where foils might effect disadvantages.So We have a boat that can foilvery well from 7 knots of wind, but just sets a new speed level even with very light winds.From Tornado we are used to the highest quality in boat building. And Eagle Catamarans from Muhr makes no compromise. Everything from the finest carbon fiber. Very stable platform and a modern rig. His novel concept, the meticulous workmanship, best materials, means of cleverly arranged fittings and trim options make the perfect Eagle 20 HF one of the most exciting catamaran in its class.Racers from all over Europe appreciate not only the outstanding speed potential longevity and stability of all EAGLE catamarans.
