About Luxury Classic Sailing Yacht EROS:
Luxury Crewed charter yacht EROS is one of the most luxurious classic schooner sailing yachts in the world at this moment in time.   Available for fully customised private yacht charter cruises in the East Caribbean and NEW England, she was designed for an English Lord’s daughter. Apart from genuine classic cruising offer, this fabulous super sail yacht promises luxury performance sailing as well. With her luxurious accommodations and fantastic Captain and super yacht crew, EROS is a standout among any yachts currently available for luxury crewed and private super yacht charters worldwide!
Luxury sailing yacht EROS has a unique history. She was built as a schooner, a genuine classic beauty in England back in 1939. The order came from top of the establishment for the daughter and son-in-law of a British Lord. Soon after her launch, EROS was very soon commandeered by the Royal Navy to participate in the famous evacuation at Dunkirk as part of WW2 efforts. In late 1940’s she was purchased by the first man internationally known as a billionaire, Stavros Niarchos, who made her his own private floating palace and helping her become a well-known super sail yacht in the Mediterranean yachting community. Her present owners acquired her in 1992 with the latest, museum quality restoration, with no expenses spared completed only recently! During the restoration, the original hull and deck plans were removed allowing reparation or as appropriate replacement of parts of the steel structure. A total of 20,000 bronze bolts were replaced, or renewed, all used to fasten the planks to the steel. Furthermore, the piping, pumps, winches, spars, wiring, electronics and all systems on the yacht were also either replaced or where possible completely overhauled. And while her exterior makes her what she is, the interior is where the genuine connoisseurs of sailing will be at home. The original Art-Deco grandeur of a bygone era is visible throughout with varnished teak joinery, brass fittings and rich, elegant fabrics providing a homely, yet historical atmosphere. The classic nautical theme with suitable artwork plus sofas with specially chosen burgundy velvet hue compliment a first class, classic décor par excellence.

While she has been fitted with all the latest navigation, galley and engine room equipment, she is otherwise restored as she was built. With her original varnished teak joiner work and fittings she is a step back in time evoking the romance and beauty of the Art Deco era from whence she came.

Luxury Sailing Yacht EROS can accommodate up to 8+1 guests in 4 luxuriously appointed en-suite cabins. The guests will have a total of 3 double and 1 twin cabins at their disposal, with the twin and one double also featuring additional 2 Pullman berths. The master suite is starboard and has a Queen size bed, en-suite and shower/Jacuzzi tub. Port forward cabin has a double bed, while port aft cabin has Twin upper and lower beds. One final cabin located starboard aft has a matrimonial lower bed and a twin upper bed. This set up is very flexible and enables all parties seeking a classic yacht charter with state-of-the-art facilities required for a genuine luxury crewed yacht charter experience and adventure filled, fully customized sailing vacation in the East Caribbean and most recently in NEW England. All cabins are en-suite and with their own individual air con and audio-video entertainment systems.

He is one of the most experienced sailors in the charter fleets worldwide and an award winning mariner, his work was featured in a number of high profile magazines thanks to his considerable reputation as a builder and restoration man of classic schooner yachts.
