I'm going to assume you mean the Transpac Eagle 40?
After 17 years with out previous boat, (a 36 Sundowner tug), we switched to a 40' Eagle three summers ago. Spent over 5 weeks aboard this summer on a long cruise in the Pacific NW. We are very pleased with the boat. Good sea boat for coastal cruising. We burned 2 gph, including generator and diesel furnace, for 100 engine hours between fuel ups.
Here's a link to a current magazine article about Eagle 40 Trawlers
