Eyghtene 24, 'Paljas', Nieuwpoort

€ 2 700

The Eygthene 24 was first built in 1973. The designer, Ron Holland, has gone on to design other succesful boat designs, including both half ton cup and Fastnet race winners. The Eygthene was one of the very first designs from Ron Holland. Its efficient shape and sail plan made him famous after it won the Quarter Ton Cup in 1973.

The name of the boat comes from Ron Hollands New Zealander background. If you say Eygthene in a strong New Zealand accent it sounds like eighteen - which is the rating number that came out from the old I.O.R. rule for a boat to qualify as a 1/4-ton boat.

The hull shape is unusual. The boat has a very wide beam at the deck level, whilst the waterline beam is slimmer and more inline with other boats of its era. Originally this design allowed the racing crew to place their weight far from the centreline of the boat in order to keep it flat. This arrangement makes the boat great for cruising as well as it makes the interior of the boat really spacious.
