Best Naval Architecture Sailing Yacht Award for Sea Eagle II


81 m SEA EAGLE II won "Best Naval Architecture Sailing Yachts" Award at Boat International's Design and Innovation Awards 2021.

Very proud of this achievement and many thanks and congratulations to the Owner of SEA EAGLE II and the whole project and built team including Royal Huisman and Mark Whiteley Design!

As described by Boat International:

Sea Eagle II
In the most intricately quantitative category, the numbers determined the two top candidates to be the ones most unalike, one a race-ready yacht and the other a cruising schooner. Surprisingly the science behind their designs, their hull and sail plan efficiencies and performance under power were very similar. While both are custom designs, Sea Eagle II was the more novel concept and presented the larger design and innovation, given the owner's brief and the loads and complexities associated with her size and 1,027-tonne displacement. She is not just a large cruising yacht with global capability but a beautiful boat that sails well.
