Foiling Cruiser Cat: Eagle Class 53

The Eagle Class 53' its a trickle up of Petrucci's S9 beachcat conf. Later White Formula also adopted the 4pt T foil conf.  The Vampire M20 has a 3pt foil conf but can be out in this category on the T foil selecction. Watch closely the setup towards coming big projects. We'll revisit this design in the future.

Built to Play Born to Race.
Fast Forward Composites is about to debut the exciting new foiling high-performance Eagle Class 53 Catamaran in September. This unique and technologically forward design has been kept quiet and under wraps as it has been developed.

Fast Forward Composites – The Team
Our team on the floor consists of seasoned boatbuilders and composite specialists from around the country as well as from boatbuilding schools in our own backyard - I.Y.R.S. in Newport, Rhode Island and the Landing School in Arundel, Maine. Our crew includes builders from campaigns such as Oracle Racing, Luna Rossa, Artemis Racing, and Comanche, as well as mast builders of Alinghi, Luna Rossa, and Young America.

We work together to provide the innovative know-how needed to design and produce exactly what your project requires. Our mission is to deliver the highest quality composite structures, on time and on budget.

The New Eagle Class Boat
Conceived by professional sailors and designed by an international team of designers, engineers and naval architects, the Eagle Class 53 is the ultimate weekender. EC 53 is equipped with the latest in foiling and wing technology and is capable of navigating at top speeds with unrivaled comfort and luxury.

Our vision is simple; to deliver the technology and performance of a competitive racing boat to the recreational sailor.

The boat is also hoping to make its way to Antigua in time for RORC’s Caribbean 600 in February 2019.

Press invitation to see the boat
As the boat will launch in September we hope to have some limited availability for press to sail the boat during its trials in mid September (date still to be announced)

We will then have the official press launch and boat debut at the Annapolis Boat Show 4th to 8th October (official press invites to come).

Please contact Alex Cordts at Fast Forward Composites - press@fastforwardcomposites.com for any further information and to book your press place.

Attached to this email is additional information including comments on the design from some of the key team members along with recent images from the yard.
