"EOS" The Worlds Largest Sailing Yacht

Eos is the worlds largest sailing yacht measuring in at a staggering 92.92m (305ft). She was built by the German yard Lurssen and launched in July of 2006 and had 6 months of finishing and sea trials before it left for the Caribbean in November of that year. She is currently in Holland where she is about to go through a refit by Royal Huisman's refit section Huisfit. This picture was taken 6 weeks ago as she left Valencia, Spain on her way to Holland.

Her heavy schedule over the past 5 years has taken its toll and some of the work she will be getting done in the refit consists of:
  • New paint job for her hull and spars
  • Updates and repairs to her teak deck
  • Reconditioning of deck equipment by Rondal
  • Cosmetic repairs
  • Systems upgrading
Lurssen were responsible for her naval architecture and Bill Langton and Francois Catroux were responsible for her interior design. One of the main features on board Eos is the 14ft world map mural. She can accommodate 16 guests in luxury cabins and has a crew of 21 to run the yacht.
