Cannibal was designed by Morgan Embroden and built by Dennis Choate in Southern California. Embroden was also the designer of the Trismus class of yacht so very popular in Europe. He was associated with Patrick Van God, the renowned European sailor and singlehander who tragically lost his life at sea. The design and construction revolutionized cruising sailboats for many years.

Cannibal a été conçu par Morgan Embroden et construit par Dennis Choate en Californie.

Embroden était également le concepteur du Trismus, voilier  très populaire en Europe.
Il a été associé à Patrick Van God, le marin européen renommé qui a tragiquement disparu en mer.

La conception et la construction ont révolutionné les bateaux à voiles de croisière 
pour plusieurs années.

Cannibal is a unique blue water cruiser which has been sailed around the world twice by a husband and wife team. She is extremely easy to sail, set up to be handled single handed while the mate sleeps. Her helm can be so finely balanced that an Autohelm 3000 is sufficient for steering in winds up to 45k with accompanying seas. She is easily capable of 200+ nm in 24 hours. With the infinite adjustments available with the dagger and swing boards and the sail configuration Cannibal can be sailed flat, increasing the comfort and safety factors associated with sailing.

Cannibal has a long run box keel, 36 inches wide, which allows her to be beached when tides allow. She will stand upright. Because of her shallow 4 foot draft she can spend cruising time in much shallower water than most 54’ yachts. The dagger board drops to as much as 10’ for maneuvering in close quarters, or going to weather. The swing board along with the dagger board allows infinite adjustment of the lateral
plane so that the boat will track comfortably on any course through the water.
