Eagle is a custom open bridge-deck performance cruising catamaran from the design board of John Shuttleworth who is known for his innovative performance multihulls used in racing circuits and endurance events worldwide. 

The Shuttleworth 32 was conceptualized as a lightweight, simple to sail, sailor’s catamaran.  Eagle  was professionally built in Florida by Dale Schneider. The hull and deck are fiberglass impregnated with vinylester resin over closed cell foam core. The hull is flared above the waterline to create greater interior volume, without increasing windage.  Consequently this catamaran provides excellent sailing performance on all points of sail,  The design is expected to tack through 80 degrees at maximum VMG, sailing closer to the wind than almost any cruising catamaran on the water. There is a single dagger-board located in the port hull which can be raised easily for off-wind and shallow water sailing. 

Eagle is fitted with a rotating wing mast constructed of carbon. The rig was completely refurbished in 2018 with partial Dyneema standing and running rigging added. The wing provides a very efficient and simple rig. The high aspect jib is self tacking which means no winching nor flogging lines when coming about. The mast size is designed so that the mast itself becomes the storm sail. The forward cross beam is also built in carbon to minimize weight forward and provide exceptional strength to this critical structure. The rig is equipped with a furling screecher for fast off wind sailing.

An advantage of the flared hull design is not only to provide latent buoyancy and lift, but to significantly increase in interior cabin volume. The accommodations are comfortable for a couple with space for guests in each hull. A full galley is found in the port hull and a chart table and head on the starboard side. The open bridge-deck with hard top has plentiful seating, excellent visibility in all directions and easy access to sail controls. There are large fridge/ freezer compartments located in the forward section of the cockpit. 

Eagle will appeal to adventurous sailors who want be off the grid and enjoy sparkling sailing and the ability to access very shallow anchorages or pull up to beaches with ease. Thanks to the kick-up rudders and dagger board,  the vessel has 18″ of draft! 

Accommodations

Eagle has an open cockpit/bridgedeck with accommodation in the hulls.

The port hull has a spacious (7’x 4’6″) double bunk in the bow, with the canted daggerboard casing on the outer side of the hull behind;  the lateral galley is mid-ships and a comfortable salon/dinette aft with a large table can drop down to form a 4th double berth. There is a large, open storage compartment in the stern.   

The starboard hull has the ‘master cabin’  aft, with large (6’7 x 5’4) berth, with standing room & plentiful storage. Forward is the chart table & wet locker & separate head, with Lavac toilet on the inboard side and basin & shower on the outboard side. The double cabin  in the bow mirrors that in the port bow – with double berth and storage.
