Ship Ahoy! EOS

EOS, named after the Greek goddess of dawn, is said to be valued in excess of US$150 million, and is regarded as the world's largest private sailing yacht. There are other yachts which have longer over the deck lengths and shorter bowsprits but EOS takes the prize for overall length including bowsprit. She has an all-aluminium hull and superstructure which took three years to build at the Fr. Lurssen Werft shipyard in Bremen, Germany, where she was launched in 2005 and completed in 2006. EOS was designed as a three-masted Bermuda rigged schooner by Bill Langan, who is the owner…
