This week brought an additional point of interest to Palace by the Sea, as Barry Diller’s EOS the world’s largest sailing yacht is moored right in front of La Punta private beach, providing a spectacular view of this magnificent vessel. Here are some photos we took and a brief description from wiki:

The Eos is a three-masted Bermuda rigged schooner. The ship is one of the largest private sailing yachts in the world, and as of 2009 was owned by movie and media billionaire Barry Diller,[3] husband of fashion designer Diane von Fürstenberg.[4] According to a 2007 article in Harper’s Bazaar, Eos features a figurehead of von Fürstenberg sculpted by Anh Duong.[5] Its overall length measures approximately 305 feet (92.92m).[1]

Eos was launched in Bremen, Germany from the Lürssen yard in 2006. The ship took three years to build.[2] When launched, she “knocked Athena off the number one spot [for largest sailing yacht].”[1] Bill Langan was the designer,[6] Rondal/Huisman supplied the rig, and the remaining naval architecture was completed by Lürssen. The interior was designed by François Catroux.[7] The 200 feet (61 m) tall masts are “the maximum height allowed to enable the craft to pass underneath bridges cross the globe.”[8]

Latitude 38 describes Eos’ owner, Barry Diller, creator of Fox Broadcasting Company, as “currently the Chairman of Expedia and the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of IAC/InterActiveCorp … parent of companies including Home Shopping Network, Ticketmaster, Match.com and others,” noting that “In 2005, Diller received $295 million in compensation, the highest of any executive in the United States.”[12]
