Anybody Familiar with an Elliott designed Eagle 365 ?

Hi all.

Probably more a question for the Kiwi's but I was interested in opinions on the eagle 365.

How do they sail?

Suitable for offshore coastal work etc?

They seem to be a Elliott design with a shorter rig and stiffer keel?

Any info would be great

Thanks

You mean like this one..

Eagle 365 | Trade Me

The Elliott 1050s that they are based on are seriously fast boats. I know this having race against them for many years. This would be a great coastal cruiser.

I once asked a couple of guys who'd just returned from sailing around the world in a Mull 30 what they thought the ideal cruiser was and they said an Elliot 12, because that would spent the least time between destinations.

Shorter keel should be good for the Tweed River?

It's funny isn't it.

Yes JUST like that one.

I am not sure that the wife can get her head around the reputation of the Elliott designs as flat out racers.

I think we should march it up the flagpole and see.
