Looking great this year, under new ownership, who has replaced the old red upholstery on the settees in the original teak paneled saloon with light blue cotton upholstery and who has put Director’s chairs on deck, old-world style, the beautifully varnished, restored, 115’ British-built schooner EROS is the epitome of 1938 luxury. Built for the daughter and son in law of an English Lord, high bulwarks surrounding flush teak decks forward of the chart house have large butterfly hatches that let in lots of light, while a small cockpit aft around an out of door dining table adjoining the chart house allows guests to sit comfortably, undisturbed at sea. Awnings give shade over the main and staysail booms all the way to the foremast with masses of deck space underneath. With helm aft, a varnished companionway leading below through the chart house opens to a central corridor, off of which are four guest cabins of varying sizes.
The largest stateroom, the master cabin, with white paint and original mahogany furniture, has a large Queen berth and adjoining bathroom with Jacuzzi tub. Opposite is the VIP guest stateroom with private bathroom and shower. Aft of those cabins are two upper and lower twin cabins, each with lower double berths, but one lower double is quite narrow; so it could be considered a single bunk. Both staterooms share a bathroom with shower.
Fully air conditioned, the spacious, full-width saloon has highly varnished, beveled mahogany paneling, white ceiling, wall sconces, and a nicely set, gimballed dining table. The owners reluctantly took the piano out, but this extends the seating area, so that everyone in the party can find a place to sit. The full width stainless steel galley and crew quarters for six are forward. The best thing about EROS is her brightwork; all her varnish gleams on deck and below. Built in 1938, she is a true classic. Her schooner rig makes her easy to sail. “All the sails are manageable.”
Crew of Five – Captain Justin Bernhart is from the United States and has 20 years of sailing experience, running schooners and classic vessels. He is assisted by a crew of four, all of whom have received many testimonials; they have entertained alot. Amy the chief stewardess is personable, petite and blond. Jared the first mate is capable; chef Jessica and Eva stewardess, all are mostly Newport-based. “With our 22 ft beam,” Jared says, “We offer the same space as a catamaran, only we are a different shape.”
Available from St. Thomas from November through May, EROS charters for $38,900 to $45,700 weekly all inclusive for four to twelve guests (rates slide according to number in party). Although the yacht is best suited for eight, twelve is okay if two sleep in the saloon and two in the deck house. Christmas and New Years is available for $48,000 weekly plus expenses. EROS sails from Newport, Rhode Island during the summer, and she is available for racing charters.
Water Toys – Loads! Large tender with 90 hp outoard pulls anything – 2nd tender with additional outboard – two stand up paddle boards, wake board, water skis, snorkel gear, sea scooters, yoga mats, swim platform and towables.
“We love the ‘big brawler’ (the large tender),” Justin tells me, “and we love sailing the yacht herself; guests are welcome to take the helm, man the sheets, and she’s the prettiest yacht in most anchorages.”
