About EROS

Operating in the East Coast of North America, Caribbean and Other Cruising Areas

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. Her present owners acquired her in 1992 and have just 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.

Crew Profile

Captain: Jeremy King

Growing up sailing on the Hudson River in New York, Jeremy has cultivated a life long passion for the sea. Prior to joining Eros, Jeremy captained a Bermudian rigged schooner offering tours of the Narragansett Bay and a charter motor yacht based in Manhattan. With more than 5 years in the yachting industry Jeremy holds his 200 Ton USCG captain’s license and is a PADI Advanced Diver. Jeremy now calls Newport, RI his home port but feels equally at home in the blue waters of the Caribbean. Captain Jeremy will assure your time aboard Eros is safe, relaxing, and memorable for years to come.

Deckhand: John Billings-Clark

John is the deckhand onboard Eros. Growing up outside of Chicago John’s first passion was for film and cinematography. Taking a leave of absence from art school he cruised the Caribbean on a small catamaran and found his love for sailing. An accomplished Eagle Scout, John is always up for a challenge. His job is to keep the boat in ship shape and ensure smooth sailing for everyone on board. John is the person in charge of Eros’ many toys. Whether you wish to gunkhole on a paddleboard, kayak to shore, or use one of the towable tubes, wakeboards, and water skis, John will make sure everything is prepared for a fun, safe time.

First Mate/Engineer: Wilson Willkom

A native of the Philippines, Wilson’s work as a research technician in Biotech brought him to the US in 1999. He spent most of his free time climbing the Sierra Nevada Mountains and sailing on the San Francisco Bay. Wilson has sailed extensively in California, Mexico and the Caribbean as both crew member and skipper. He joined Eros in 2012 for a charter season in the Caribbean which included the voyage from San Francisco to St. Thomas, Virgin Islands via the Panama Canal. A consummate professional whose love for Eros matches his passion for sailing, Wilson takes great pride in her care and upkeep. Dedicated to pleasing guests and captain alike, he is beloved for his cheerful and welcoming disposition.

Stewardess: Renée Randolph Myers

Renée brings 20 years of hospitality and catering leadership to Eros, where she combines her talent and professionalism with her love for sailing. A product of California’s food & wine entertainment boom, she has managed countless affairs through the years, from high-profile corporate and public events to intimate private dinners. Her attention to detail, style and simplicity reflect her early background in TV advertising production.

No stranger to the sailing world, her yachting hospitality credits include the Presidential Yacht, Potomac, America's Cup, Moet Cup, Louis Vuitton Cup and the Mayor's Cup Yacht Races in Newport, RI. Her warmth and conviviality, combined with a passion for world travel, make her at home with Eros guests from around the world, from our youngest to our most seasoned travelers. Renée is eager to learn her guests’ favorite items so that she can prepare Eros for your arrival in the most personal way.

Master Chef: John Meyers

John brings a wealth of culinary vision and international flair to Eros, with a focus on artfully presented cuisine prepared with the finest and freshest ingredients. We strive to accommodate all preferences and dietary restrictions. Child-friendly menus, late-night snacks, and picnic boxes to go can also be arranged.
