Eros is a classic beauty built in England in 1939 for the daughter and son-in-law of a British Lord. She was very soon after commandeered by the Royal Navy to participate in the famous evacuation at Dunkirk. After the war she became the private yacht of the first man internationally known as a billionaire, Stavros Niarchos, and she became well known in the Mediterranean yachting community. Her present owners acquired her in 1992 and have just completed a museum quality restoration, no expenses spared!
Eros comfortably accommodates up to eight guests in four double cabins. The usual toys are aboard for amusing oneself when at anchor: small boats suitable for sailing, paddling or skiing, snorkeling gear and dive boat, plasma TV, piano, hammocks – the list goes on!
When money is no object, the crew can arrange for you to have the ultimate toy aboard – one of Graham Hawke’s deep flight submersibles along with a qualified instructor.
The professional crew of five includes a very experienced Captain and gourmet chef. Guests can swing in a hammock sipping a tropical drink, swim to the beach, or take the helm and help hoist the sails if you wish.
Eros comfortably sleeps up to 9 guests in its 4 smartly furnished guest cabins. Each air-conditioned room is handsomely appointed with original teak paneling, tasteful artwork, ample storage to unpack your belongings, and all the bedside conveniences of home. Hatches provide natural light as well as the option for fresh air ventilation. Daily housekeeping is included.
