Schooner EROS Available for Charter in New England

One of the world’s most iconic classic schooners, the 115-foot sailing yacht EROS, has arrived in Newport, RI, and is ready to take you on your classic yacht dream vacation.

One of the world’s most iconic classic schooners, the 115-foot sailing yacht EROS, has arrived in Newport, RI, and is ready to take you on your classic yacht dream vacation.

As one of the larger classics to grace local waters, EROS will take guests on multi-day vacations to local islands like Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard, as well as a handful of classic yacht regattas.

“We love bringing EROS to Narragansett Bay and surrounding waters,” says Cameron Riddell, EROS’ managing partner. “She just looks at home here among all these wonderful classics in this historic setting — not to mention the sailing is exceptional.”

The islands just outside of Newport, RI offer an unparalleled sailing and vacationing experience. While Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard and the rest are quintessential New England, they are all unique with their own charm. Each island is totally accessible by tender and rented bikes and provide attractions for young and old alike. EROS can visit them all in one week or spend multiple days on one or two. Nothing is set in stone plans can be altered to suit your desires. Let Captain Justin create the perfect itinerary for you. EROS is available for private charters during the summer in New England, and in the Caribbean for the winter. She can be booked for classic regattas or vacation sailing in coastal waters from Long Island through the coast of Maine.


Enjoy EROS with family and friends

EROS is crewed by a professional team of five, including captain, chef, mate/engineer, deckhand and stewardess. They are dedicated to EROS’s guests’ comfort, safety, and most of all, enjoyment.

EROS can day sail with up to 12 guests and can accommodate eight guests in four nicely appointed double cabins for term charters. She’s ideal for two families, or 3-4 couples.

The Perfect Team Building Experience

“As a lifelong sailor, our regatta charter on EROS at the Herreshoff Classic Regatta was like a dream come true. Not only was the racing fun and competitive but the Planet Fitness managers we brought along truly bonded as a team and had a whole new approach to our business after the experience. Racing on the large and beautiful EROS far exceeded my expectations, thanks in large part to the wonderful captain and crew who guided our team members through all their sail handling tasks; we were all a critical part of the race team even though some of our team had never set foot on a boat before. If you want to transform a disparate group into a cohesive team, take them on a regatta on EROS. It was well worth the investment.”
