Lürssen's largest sailing yacht completes six-month refit

7 May 2024 • Written by Dea Jusufi

The 92.9-metre schooner Eos has now completed a six-month refit with Lürssen, having arrived at the shipyard's Hamburg facilities in October 2023.

Work included an overhaul of all three masts, booms and rigging components, an upgrade to the automation system and a new coat of paint. Her halogen lighting was also converted to LED while her hull, masts and certain sections of the superstructure were repainted.

Delivered in 2006, Eos is the largest sailing yacht built by Lürssen and, at the time, was the largest sailing yacht in the world. She has since travelled over 200,000 nautical miles. Her exterior is owed to the late Bill Langan, with interior design by Francois Catroux.

At the time, Eos captains Shairp and Cottle said: "We are proud to return to the builder for this Special Survey and yard period. Planning with Lürssen over the last 18 months has been thorough and they offer a total commitment to the redelivery date."

She is expected to return to Lürssen in five years' time for her 20-year survey.

Eos' previous refit was at Royal Huisman in 2019, which saw a major engine overhaul as well as the removal, inspection and repainting of her Rondal rigs. 

Lürssen recently welcomed the 90-metre sailing yacht Athena for a substantial interior refit.
