Dykstra & Partners, the Dutch naval architecture firm best known for its design of the 289-foot Perini Navi sailing yacht Maltese Falcon, has teamed with Leonardo Yachts, a new Dutch shipyard specializing in daysailers, to create a much smaller breed of sailboat. The 44-foot Leonardo Eagle 44 exhibits the classic lines of the J-Class racing yachts for which Dykstra & Partners is renowned. The Eagle 44, priced from about $300,000, features a hull made of strong but lightweight foam-cored epoxy laminate and teak decking. The boat is built for speed and leisure. The mahogany-clad belowdecks area includes a bar, a sink, a small refrigerator, a head, and even a bed, making the Eagle 44 perfect for summer sleepovers.
