About EROS

Operating in the Caribbean, North America and the East Mediterranean

Schooner '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. In 2015, 'EROS' 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 EROS 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.

First mate: Jared Frith
First mate: Jared Frith

Jared started sailing dinghies and other small boats on Lake Dillon near his home in Breckenridge, Colorado. He joined a steel l ketch carrying charter guests between Panama and Colombia through the San Blas Islands and fell in love with sailing and the charter business. From there Jared traveled by land through many different countries, but really missed sailing so he found himself on more yachts, gravitating towards larger and older traditional vessels, mostly schooners. Jared loves wooden yachts, the older the better; he enjoys their character. And he loves sharing time on these yachts with guests that he can teach and form friendships with. He enjoys long sea deliveries, seeing the crew become a team, standing watch and partaking in the ultimate nature outing. In his free time Jared loves spending time in the outdoors and traveling as much as possible.

Stewardess: Eva
Stewardess: Eva

Eva’s love for sailing began when her parents signed her up for sailing camp while on family vacation in the south of France. She began learning the basics on Hobie cats in France and when back home in New England, on small dinghys her neighbors had. When her family moved to Newport, RI Eva found her home with the high school sailing team where she hit, and excelled through a massive learning curve in the art of racing. Eva competed year round for 4 years, until she started college. During her short time in college, she realized how much she missed sailing, and soon paused her studies to pursue a career in the industry.

-Nantucket, MA September 2019

Everything was magnificent, impeccable Eros behaving wonderful, captain Justin and his crew A#1,I would like to personally thank you for the wonderful suggestion to sail Eros.  She is amazing, the crew even more amazing.  We really appreciate your kindness as always guiding us in having a wonderful and memorable vacation with our friends and family. 

-Newport, RI June 2020​

"Thank you for everything that you must do to keep this vessel available to those of us without your courage to undertake such a daunting task. Sleeping on her deck and contemplating the heavens through the frame of her rigging provided a picture of sheer magnificence. And the sailing compounded the joy of it all. The entire crew was sensational and all in it has left me wanting more."

- Antigua and Barbuda (Christmas and New Year 2017/2018)

"My week on Eros during the Antigua regatta was one of the most memorable experiences I’ve had. The combination of a beautiful boat, an amazing crew and great meals make for a wonderful vacation. The racing was fun too!"

-S.R., Hermosa Beach, CA (April 2017)

"I recently had the opportunity to go sailing on Eros with my son, some of my best buddies and their sons. What an experience! The boat is beautiful - everything it's advertised to be. We hit surfing and snorkeling spots you can't get to without a boat. We did some fishing, took many father/son kayak trips and just soaked up the amazing sun and waters of the BVIs. Simply put, a trip we will remember forever."

-B.D., San Gabriel, CA (2017)

"Excellent in every way. Loved the sailing. We wouldn’t change a thing."

-J.M., Denver, CO (2017)

“Our group of seven ladies absolutely loved every minute of our five days on board Eros; we are very grateful for the experience and look forward to returning with husbands and kids.”

-R.J., New York, NY (2017)

"We had an amazing time. Eros is a spectacular yacht, the crew was excellent, the USVI were beautiful and the weather was good too! The highlight of the trip was sail down passage between USVI & BVI. We also had great time with anchored activities: diving off transom/swimming around Eros; snorkeling with colorful reef fish, turtles and a sting ray; seeing spotted eagle rays jumping out of the water; enjoying delicious meals; “skurfing” (one son learned to water ski, the other learned to wake board); spending two afternoons on uncrowded beaches; etc. Great family time!”
