The yacht was designed by the scottish naval architect, william mcmeek, and constructed by the highly respected lowestoft based builders, brooks motor craft uk. She was constructed to massive scantlings in composite steel frames and 3' teak planking; at the time this method of construction was popular in the united states but jeanry was one of the first to be built in the uk in this manner. Wwii broke out shortly following her christening and launching in 1939; it wasn't long before she was commandeered by the royal navy for coastal patrols. She is said to have assisted the evacuation of allied troops at dunkirk. As an air force pilot, henry was killed during the war; at the end of the war the royal navy offered to reinstate ownership, however henry's widow and the white family decided against receiving the jeanry. Stavros niarchos, a greek shipping tycoon and the first man internationally known as a billionaire purchased her as his private yacht, and renamed her eros'. Under niarchos' ownership in the years following the war she became a highly recognized staple of the mediterranean yachting community and was universally admired for her grace sailing abilities. Eros eventually spent time on the east coast of the united states before being sailed to california where she eventually found her way into the hands of her present owners in 1992. Her new owners began a long and painstaking reconstruction of this fine cruising vessel. Over the following years all of the hull and deck planks were carefully removed to allow access to the steel structure which was repaired and replaced as necessary; all of the bronze bolts fastening the planks to the steel frames were renewed (20,000 in all); keel bolts were removed, inspected, and replaced where necessary. All of the piping, wiring, pumps, winches, spars, standing rigging, running rigging, electronics, and all ancillary systems on the yacht were either completely overhauled or replaced with new. There is a complete written and photographic history available for interested parties. The end result of this museum-quality reconstruction is one of the most beautiful, no-nonsense, classic wooden cruising staysail schooners afloat. Eros is easily handled by a small crew and she is capable of sailing anywhere in the world at a moment's notice once provisioned. Vessel walk through eros is a classic gloucesterman staysail schooner; she carries a marconi mainsail (1620 sq. Ft.), main staysail (683 sq. Ft.), fore staysail (419 sq. Ft.), jib (1300 sq.
