Design 2211 - Trojan Eagle

Trojan Eagle was constructed of aluminum by Steel Yachts & Launches of Aukland, New Zealand and launched in 1974. The design is a development of Inca, design #2131. As such please reference those drawings for profile and interior arrangement.

Reviewing the material we have, I can we used the rig plans for Tantara, design #2176.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 45'-0"
LWL 34'-6"
Beam 13'-1"
Draft 7'-1"
Displacement 25,500 lbs
Ballast 11,735 lbs (outside) 1,000 lbs (inside)
Sail Area 903 sq ft


  1. We've owned Trojan Eagle since March 2002. She was built by Wanganui Steel Boats Ltd (now defunct and maybe taken over by Q-West?) and launched in 1976. So some of the details here need to be corrected. The photos show her on our/her mooring in Beeches Bay, Waikawa Bay, New Zealand soon after we bought her.

  2. I now own Trojan Eagle. For the second time, having previously owned it in the 1990s. The hull and sail plan are exact copies of Tantara, the designated design number is a result of changes to a full length cabin trunk and a modified keel. In the last 18 months the boat has had a major refit and a complete new paint job. Unfortunately due to ill health, my use of the boat is limited and I am hopeful I can find Trojan Eagle a new owner.
