ABOUT US

Vessel Origin

The Ocean Eagle (formally called ‘Chubasco’ & ‘American Eagle’) is a 72foot Swath Ocean catamaran, designed and built in the United States. She was originally built for the owner of a San Diego boat building company ‘Swath Ocean Systems’ as his own personal pleasure vessel. She was designed to travel the world with all her sophisticated systems.

America's Cup History

The Ocean Eagles involvement with the America’s Cup Challenge has been a long and colourful one. She was bought by the billionaire ‘Bill Koch’ who also owned the yacht America 3, defeating the Italian team four races to one in the 1992 Challenge. The Eagle was used as his personal chase boat.

She was also involved in the 1995 Challenge when Bill Koch financed another team to compete for the Cup. This time the crew consisted entirely of women except for tactician David Dellenbaugh on a yacht named the Mighty Mary, skippered by the New Zealander, Leslie Egnot. The Eagle was once again his personal chase boat.

She then went on to being the San Diego Yacht Clubs committee boat for the New Zealand ‘Big Boat KZ1’, defeated by the defender, a catamaran, Stars and Stripes – US1. The ‘Big Boat’ is still being displayed today in Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour Basin.

When New Zealand won the America’s Cup in 1995, the owner of the vessel New Zealand Challenge, purchased the Ocean Eagle from Bill Koch and shipped her to New Zealand. Since then, amongst being the most popular corporate function vessel, she has been Team New Zealand’s hospitality boat for the two America’s Cups held in the ‘City of Sails’.

something on the smaller side might be better. But if you want a more traditional cruise
experience, then a larger ship might be right for you.

responsive to their needs. If they don’t care about their customers, satisfaction, they probably
