Pacific Trailer Yachts subcontracts the manufacture of the Eclipse 750 to local boatbuilder, Davie Norris.
We have re-introduced new yachts to New Zealand after a lull of 25 years. Trailer Yachts were built in large numbers in the 70's & 80's which put family yachting within the reach of many New Zealanders.
Thanks to a luxury tax in the 80's this crippled the industry overnight and the next generations missed out on this wonderful activity.
We have "broken the mould" and brought back to life a solid design, a modern reincarnation of the Trojan 750, originally designed as a fixed keel "cruiser / racer" designed to International Offshore Rules (IOR). However, the Trojan did not exhibit any of the vices evident in other IOR designs of the time. With the addition of the new High lift foil keel and centreplate the performance of the design has been brought right up to date.
