Grabau International is pleased to share a fascinating two-part video review of the 2017 Young 65 Custom Catamaran ‘EOS’.
2017-launched carbon fibre performance bluewater catamaran, based on the Greg Young designed TAG 60 but with full custom construction. A very special yacht!
FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
This truly exceptional German Registered catamaran was based upon the TAG 60 catamaran design by renowned New Zealand Designer Greg Young but then modified by Oliver Treutlein working in conjunction with Greg Young working to create this incredible boat over an eight-year project to the owner’s specific requirements relating to performance, seaworthiness and structural integrity. Having been launched in Germany at the end of 2017 she has been sailed to Spain where she is now lying.
Incorporating the Carbon sandwich construction with a 24m Hall Spars rotating carbon mast with a 9m carbon Park Avenue boom from which can be flown a; 150 sqm flat head main sail, self-tacking 65 sqm headsail and 32 sqm staysail (both on furlers) with an additional 150 sqm Code zero and a 175sqm gennaker (on a drum positioned on the bowsprit) (all by Doyle Sails in high performance “Stratis” material), EOS is certain to be the most amazing long distance, easily managed, luxury cruising yacht. To add to the ease of handling, she has a pair of electric winches plus additional manual ones.
She incorporates such technologies as; both natural and solar driven ventilation throughout the boat’s interior and such are the insulation qualities of her construction combined with minimising the deck hatches and having vertical cabin windows, that air conditioning is deemed to not be necessary, so minimising cost, maintenance and of course, space and weight. She has a Watertech water maker able to produce 160 litres per hour plus LED exterior and interior lighting with red courtesy lighting to protect night vision, a washing machine whilst the hot water can be generated either via an electric immersion heater or via a heat exchanger devise run from the engines.
The boat also has a tremendous entertainment system which includes; a flat screen TV mounted on a telescopic pivot enabling it to be viewed from either the cockpit or the saloon (this screen also retracts to be flat on the cabin roof), three further TVs to the sleeping cabins, a Clarion Radio/CD with Bose speakers to the saloon and cockpit, an internet antenna with a G4 router and a KVH satellite TV antenna.
EOS has twin Yanmar SD 60 diesel engines with approximately 75hp each run through sail drive gearboxes to Gori 3-bladed folding propellers. Her easily handled cruising specification also includes an electric anchor windlass with an integrated flushing device and a remote control to lift the 60kg stainless steel anchor attached to 70m of chain.
The attention to detail and weight saving includes carbon tender davits at the stern which allow for the 4.2m Highfield RIB combined with a Yamaha 25hp outboard to be easily launched and retrieved. Six layers of Coppercoat antifouling system were applied in October 2017.
An independent Surveyor who inspected EOS estimated in 2018 that the rebuild cost for the boat would be approximately EUR 2,850,000, so with just approximately 250 hours on her engines since she was launched, she surely represents an amazing opportunity to own and enjoy an incredible yacht at a very significant saving in both time and money if she was to be recreated!

MARINE ARCHITECT’S BACKGROUND:
Young Yacht Design founded by Greg Young – Greg Young Comes from a well-known New Zealand family of yacht designers and boat builders and has over 30 years’ experience designing and building a variety of vessels. Growing up and living on the water, Greg established his sailing skills at a young age. Greg’s uncle (Jim Young) is a well-respected designer of many of New Zealand’s most popular sail and power boats while Greg’s father (Alan Young) established one of New Zealand’s largest production boat building companies building the highly successful Formula 4000.
At the age of 19 Greg started traveling around the world gaining experience in all areas of life and following his sports of yacht racing, cruising, windsurfing, surfing and snowboarding. Skippering charter yachts in the Mediterranean was a highlight. It was here that Greg developed a strong affinity with European design and style.
After winning a Yacht design competition in 1992, Greg Started Greg Young Marine Ltd soon after to build and export the award-winning Bull 7000 all over the world and following on from that and other designs, Greg designed and built the Young 57 in 2000. This was his first multihull design and this design received acclaimed attention and led to his strong affliction with multihulls and the establishment of Young Yacht Design Ltd in 2000.
Client relationships are vital in any creative process and we thoroughly enjoy the interaction and many of our previous clients have become life-long friends and repeat customers. Greg and his associates are pushing back design boundaries with a passion to explore and design truly unique and exciting projects. Text taken from Young Yacht Design’s website
Marine Architect’s summary of EOS during the design and build process:
We were very fortunate to meet these German owner’s and design their project. One of the nicest people you would ever hope to meet is also one of the very best boat builders you would ever hope could build your design. The German workmanship and accuracy of this build is simply outstanding. The best we have ever encountered anywhere.
The design started as a progression from the TAG 60 yet evolved into a highly efficient and lighter design. 100% carbon and refined in the areas of bowsprit, cabin design and component integration. This is a state-of-the-art vessel.
This is also the first Young Yacht Design to feature a reverse or Axe bow design. The hull shape is exceptionally fast, with low rocker, high water plane, lots of balanced buoyancy forward, fine waterlines and yet it is able to be pushed very hard into waves. We expect this vessel to pitch much less than conventional designs and with its deep angled asymmetrical dagger boards, it will sail to windward and deliver to the helmsman a stunning performance….
The interior is reasonably modest yet features stunning forward views through our vertical, opening windows. The subject of much discussion with the owner, the refinement of which is still (even at this late stage) a moving target, but also shows that the design is ever evolving as we seek the best solutions for our client.
Light air performance is very important and in this respect the vessel features our trademark light air headsail configuration that sets it apart from other designs. Sailing this vessel will be a great experience and we can’t wait for it to be completed. Young Yacht Design
