Ever wondered what it’s really like to cruise on board a classic superyacht? The owner and crew of 35 metre Eros have now given viewers an inside look with a new series of YouTube videos detailing life on board the charter yacht.

First delivered in 1939 by Brook Marine, the wooden schooner boasts a colourful history and has retained many of the original, classic interior features.

The sailing yacht was formerly owned by Greek shipping tycoon Stavros Niarchos and was once chartered by the former King of Spain Juan Carlos I during his royal honeymoon. Having been meticulously maintained with a refit in 2016, Eros can now welcome up to 10 charter guests on board.

To give prospective charterers and classic yacht enthusiasts a closer look inside the superyacht, owner Cameron Riddell has created a series of YouTube videos to document day-to-day excitement and activities on board. 

Offering winter cruises in the Caribbean and summer season charters around New England, Eros is “an amazing platform for a lot of great things to happen” comments Riddell, describing “sailing races, family trips, charters and crossing oceans” as some of the opportunities offered on board.

The first episode of Sailing Eros gives viewers a virtual tour of the yacht and introduces members of the crew. Following episodes document the sailing and regatta experience on board, show how repairs are conducted on a classic yacht, and feature clips and highlights from previous cruises.
