Stast: 31.39 metres, Brooke Marine, 1939, 8 guests, 6 crew
Eros was built in England in 1939 for the daughter and son-in-law of a British Lord. Soon after her launch the waters were mined by the Germans and she spent World War II stuck in port, during which time her owner died. After the war she became the private yacht of billionaire Greek shipping magnate Stavros Niarchos. Following a no-expense-spared restoration, Eros is a true classic in immaculate condition.
She still retains much of her original features like teak panelling in the dining saloon - a nod to her original art-deco interior - and can sleep up to eight guests in four double cabins. Those looking for the thrill of sailing can take the helm at her classic wooden wheel, while others can simply kick back on a sun lounger at the bow. As the sun sets, guests can dine on deck thanks to a large teak table with wraparound seating for up to 10. Eros also boasts a well-stocked toybox, carrying the likes of kayaks, deep-sea fishing gear, paddle boards and equipment for waterskiing and wakeboarding.
Charter cost: Eros is available to charter with Classic Charters, with a weekly rate starting from $42,000.
