Winner of the Motorboat and Yachting Magazine “Sportsboat of the Year 2020” Award – Literally… This was one of the two Eagle 8s that were tested by Motorboat and Yachting Magazine and featured in two video reports that they did.
This particular boat was fitted with the new Suzuki DF350 Duo-prop engine and hydraulic jacking plate and is capable of about 48 knots, but at 25 knots averages about 33 litres an hour.
It has always been kept on a Tetradock so no growth on bottom. As well as the usual refinements of the Eagle 8 with an electric anchor windlass and electric flush toilet (never been used), this boat benefits from a larger than standard chart plotter and upgraded Fusion Apollo 770 stereo. The custom colour scheme is very effective with grey gelcoat, upgraded white carbon effect tubes and beige upholstery
