IDEAL BLUEWATER CRUISER OFFERING SPACE AND COMFORT FOR LONG PASSAGES OR LIVING ABOARD IN COMFORT!
Oceanis 50 built by Beneteau in France in December 2006 for the London Boat Show, was launched in January/February 2007. The first owner sailed her from Lymington in the UK and the second and present owner bought her when she was lying in Athens in August 2015 and changed her name to Eos (the Greek Goddess of the Dawn). She is optimised for the Mediterranean and is maintained meticulously to provide reliable use throughout the year. She has all of the bells and whistles needed to make your journey and arrival comfortable including a 5.5 kW generator and a three-zone air conditioning system. She has never been chartered or raced and comes with full part one registry. Currently, she is lying in Lefkas Marina, Greece. We will be sorry to see her go, but tempus fugit!
