Only 12 were made, of which she is 4th of class. Built of mahogany planking on oak frames.
History is a bit vague- she sold originally to a gentleman in Brighton and she is reputed to have
belonged to an Irish Pop Group for a time and was then sold to another man in Brighton. The
present owner bought her in Emsworth in 2004 and spent two years fully refitting her. Launched in
2006, her shakedown cruise was to cross the Channel.
Eos is a practical and manageable craft with many admiring heads turned her way.
