    About this Sailboat:

    “Ezili”

    One of 6, 30 Foot S-Class Eagle’s built in 1926, and thought to be the last one remaining.

    Built by Dachel-Carter Company, in Benton Harbor, Michigan.

    Ezili represents the apogee of prewar ‘S’ class design. The boat is sleeker, faster and more nimble than the more numerous Herreshoff variant. Ezili has an intriguing pedigree and only has changed hands once; built for the owner of the Chicago Cubs,William Wrigley, the current owner bought her in 2004 following the boat’s restoration by IYRS of Newport, Rhode Island. The hardware was replated in 2006, the canvas decking replaced in 2007, and in 2007-08 Bluewater Marine in conjunction with the Master Shipwright at Mystic Seaport conducted a major refit. In 2008, Ezili won a special citation for excellence from Mystic Seaport at the annual Antique & Classic Boat rendezvous.
