An inexpensive entry level club racer the Eygthene was designed and launched by Ron Holland 1973. The Eygthene being one of his first designs; the efficient hull shape and sail plan firmly establishing the Ron Holland brand after winning the Quarter Ton Cup in its first year. A New Zealander by decent the name Eygthene originated from the pronunciation in a strong Kiwi accent sounding like EIGHTEEN; the designs old IOR rating number.
Her lines are unique and very much a result of a design which in its day was a 'rule beater'. The wide beam at deck level running into a more conventional beam at the water line letting the crew sit as far as possible from the centre line when on the rail. This additional leverage helping to keep the boat flat on the water. The benefits of this shape below is a very spacious interior for a boat of its size.
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.
