One of the world’s largest privately-owned yachts has docked in Bermuda.

The $150 million Eos, named after the Greek goddess of the dawn, arrived in Bermuda last Sunday and is berthed at Penno’s Wharf in St George.

The 305 feet Bermuda-rigged schooner, registered in the Cayman Islands, is owned by Diane von Furstenberg, a top fashion designer and her media mogul husband Barry Diller.

The duty officer at Harbour Radio said he believed it was the yacht’s first visit and that it would refuel and replenish its stores while in Bermuda.

Eos was built at the world famous Lürssen shipyard in Bremen, Germany and launched in 2006. Ms von Furstenberg and Mr Diller bought the yacht in 2009.

The yacht can accommodate 16 guests and has a crew of 21.

The vessel arrived in Bermuda after a five-day voyage from Balboa in Panama.

Little is known about its interior - but it is said to have a glass staircase and many other luxury features.
