A wolf in sheep’s clothing, the Eggemoggin 47 combines the classic elegance of yachting’s past with the performance of today’s hot racing classes. The extremely lightweight and incredibly strong hull is strip-planked cedar sandwiched between inner and outer carbon skins. The decks are built with lightness and strength in mind, but the eye sees only the traditional laid teak, varnished brightwork and shining polished stainless steel deck hardware.
The Eggemoggin 47 has an aggressive underwater profile with a fin / bulb lead ballast keel and balanced carbon fiber spade rudder. Aloft the Eggemoggin 47 is powered by a generous (846 sq ft) sail plan. The double-spreader, fractionally-rigged carbon fiber mast has lightweight PBO standing rigging, Harken roller-furling headstay, self-tacking jib track and leisure-furl boom. Most halyards and sail-control lines are led back to the cockpit making single- or short-handed daysailing a breeze while the well laid-out cockpit and deck plan make for highly effective crew work when in racing mode.
The interior of the Eggemoggin 47 is finished in Herreshoff-style white-painted bulkheads and joinery, accented by varnished mahogany cabinsides, countertops and trim. There is a private head space located in the forward cabin and hidden under the counter when not in use. Interior accommodations on the Eggemoggin 47 allow for comfortable cruising. There is ample sleeping space for four people in the main saloon settees and the forward cabin vee-berth. A two-burner propane stove, drawer storage refrigeration, and a sink basin with cold water tap provide a cozy galley for long weekends of coastal cruising.
Auxiliary power is provided by a 29-HP Yanmar diesel with saildrive propulsion unit and two-bladed feathering Max-prop. The engine is located under the cockpit sole in a sound-insulated engine box accessible by way of both cockpit hatch and interior cabin engine box.
