e/XL sailboat

Discover the e/XL

The e/XL is a breakthrough design from Howard Boats. It's the New England cat boat that planes. Spirit of Tradition in a fun, planing, no-maintenance, good looking modern twist on the cat boat. You won't believe it when you sail it.

All fiberglass, zero-maintenance construction - just enough teak to dress up the centerboard trunk.

Self-bailing cockpit, kick-up rudder, and easily-adjusted pivoting centerboard, the e/XL is more than a beach boat. This design is surprisingly difficult to capsize due to its traditional New England cat boat hull-shape and roots, yet planes easily (Check out our latest video here) and will ride on a mooring through any amount of breeze.

The two-piece Carbon Fiber mast has a track and a halyard for ease of rigging, yet is transportable with the spars inside the cockpit due to the two-piece mast and light-weight Carbon Fiber boom.

Custom colors are available and encouraged, so call or email Peter Eastman to discuss your e/XL.

Racing Fleets are encouraged and is our goal. Fleet pricing is available as well as Introductory Pricing Deals.
