Every category that the project has taken on, complete exterior, from the top of the mast to bottom of the keel, new sails, rigging, total electrical system, plumbing, tankage, lighting, electronics, entertainment system, thrusters, every category has been addressed and brought up to the highest standard possible!!Under previous ownership,EAGLES NESTwas sailed around the world by a retired couple and endured every type of sea and wind condition in all oceans of the world. The yacht was originally custom built in 1986, with the intent to do exactly that.....Now after the just completed refit, she is ready to embark on another adventure cruise or enter into the charter business with one of the best layouts of any sailboat under 100 ft. Now offering totally new modern systems and state of the art technology throughout, you must schedule a visit to appreciate what this recreation represents....

Considered perhaps the finest layout ever in an 80’ cruising auxiliary,EAGLES NESTis an excellent performing sailing vessel with the ability to motor sail through the lulls. Notably dry at all times within the enclosable cockpit. Handling under sail is made a pleasure with hydraulic winches and hydraulic roller furling sails. In fair weather, sailing with the sheltered cockpit wide open, there is no greater enjoyment. Her combined good looks, wonderful interior and fine performance makesEAGLES NESTan excellent choice for short hand cruising or sailing with alarge family. She also would prove to be a well‐received yacht for the charter industry.With the total update of the Caterpillar “New Generation” Cat 3.5 rated clean efficient diesel, “Eagles Nest” now has a range of 1,800 miles plus just under power alone…not to mention motor sailing the boat to any destination you desire.Think of this recreation essentially as the total modernization of a fantastic design from the 80’s with comfortable sailing speeds of 10.5 knots plus for long continuous passages in all oceans of the world…You name it, this vessel has been there and now the perfect choice to do it again, but certainly in a more efficient, comfortable manner.
