This truly exceptional German Registered catamaran was based upon the TAG 60 catamaran design by renowned New Zealand Designer Greg Young but then modified by Oliver Treutlein working in conjunction with Greg Young working to create this incredible boat over an eight-year project to the owner’s specific requirements relating to performance, seaworthiness and structural integrity. Having been launched in Germany at the end of 2017 she has been sailed to Spain where she is now lying.
Incorporating the Carbon sandwich construction with a 24m Hall Spars rotating carbon mast with a 9m carbon Park Avenue boom from which can be flown a; 150 sqm flat head main sail, self-tacking 65 sqm headsail and 32 sqm staysail (both on furlers) with an additional 150 sqm Code zero and a 175sqm gennaker (on a drum positioned on the bowsprit) (all by Doyle Sails in high performance “Stratis” material), EOS is certain to be the most amazing long distance, easily managed, luxury cruising yacht. To add to the ease of handling, she has a pair of electric winches plus additional manual ones.
She incorporates such technologies as; both natural and solar driven ventilation throughout the boat’s interior and such are the insulation qualities of her construction combined with minimising the deck hatches and having vertical cabin windows, that air conditioning is deemed to not be necessary, so minimising cost, maintenance and of course, space and weight. She has a Watertech water maker able to produce 160 litres per hour plus LED exterior and interior lighting with red courtesy lighting to protect night vision, a washing machine whilst the hot water can be generated either via an electric immersion heater or via a heat exchanger devise run from the engines.
The boat also has a tremendous entertainment system which includes; a flat screen TV mounted on a telescopic pivot enabling it to be viewed from either the cockpit or the saloon (this screen also retracts to be flat on the cabin roof), three further TVs to the sleeping cabins, a Clarion Radio/CD with Bose speakers to the saloon and cockpit, an internet antenna with a G4 router and a KVH satellite TV antenna.
EOS has twin Yanmar SD 60 diesel engines with approximately 75hp each run through sail drive gearboxes to Gori 3-bladed folding propellers. Her easily handled cruising specification also includes an electric anchor windlass with an integrated flushing device and a remote control to lift the 60kg stainless steel anchor attached to 70m of chain.
The attention to detail and weight saving includes carbon tender davits at the stern which allow for the 4.2m Highfield RIB combined with a Yamaha 25hp outboard to be easily launched and retrieved. Six layers of Coppercoat antifouling system were applied in October 2017.
An independent Surveyor who inspected EOS estimated in 2018 that the rebuild cost for the boat would be approximately EUR 2,850,000, so with just approximately 250 hours on her engines since she was launched, she surely represents an amazing opportunity to own and enjoy an incredible yacht at a very significant saving in both time and money if she was to be recreated!
