  • HS Eugenios Eugenidis - Introdution
    argue that it was but natural that the sailing ship Eugenios Eugenides should come to be connected to Greece a country celebrated for its islands with a shoreline of 16 000 km a country whose fate has been intertwined with a deep knowledge of the sea of her moods and of ways to cope with them Let us not forget that praise to the seamanship of Greeks of mariners shipbuilders fishermen and traders alike to the daring and ingenuity of our people to their constant search for that which is new can be found in writings as early as the epics of Homer And as to the historic sailing ship Eugenios Eugenides the elegant three masted schooner built in 1929 she too has a luring story to tell She starts her life as Sunbeam II in a famous shipyard somewhere in rainy Scotland and then come pleasure cruises in the warm Mediterranean waters to be followed by clandestine missions to rescue resistance fighters in the Second World War After the war she is taken to the North Sea where under Swedish ownership she acts as a training vessel and then she reaches sunny Greek waters to be used for the tryingof marine cadets in Hydra These past years the ship has remained silent moored at Phloisvos waiting for better days to come which seem at last to have arrived The Navy has taken on it a rescue operation of distinct nature Eugenios Eugenides back to life to see to it that it is repaired and refitted Ami more than anything else to blow new life into a vessel neglected for so long And it is this same wish that gave life to the exhibitioni presenting Eugenios Eugenides which was organised with great care and will be housed for several months

  • SUNBEAM II
    53 957 0s l ld Sunbeam II was built to replace the composite hulled Sunbeam I built in 1874 and as such it may well be stated to be a product of the industrial revolution s latter stage embracing features such as the single screw propeller the multi cylinder diesel engine and evident ly the steel hull She was designed by G L Watson Co and as requested by her first owner Sir Walter Runciman care was taken so that Sunbeam II had characteristics of a private yacht The designer was J R Barnett The interior designs were by A M Innes Graham This is made clear when referring to the joiner work order namely to be of high class character in best taste but to be very simple in design as well as attention being paid to stop all tendencies to rattle or vibrate a common element of modern passenger vessels and leisure boats Sunbeam II was built with the purpose of disturbing the passengers well being as little as possible To begin with the machinery was arranged so that it balanced about the centre line bunkers and water tanks are arranged so that oil and water does not materially affect the trim thus minimizing any natural tendency to pitch roll or yaw Framing and the framing of the stern in particular from where a great part of the overall vibration is generated due to the propeller is closely spaced and built very strongly Likewise the engine seats are extra strong run well from forward to aft and seats for all auxiliary engines are similarly strong specially stiffened to prevent vibration and are as far as possible combined with the main seatings to minimize vibration As fas as joinery work is concerned the deckhouse is neatly constructed with camber similar to the main deck but well rounded in elliptical form at sides and ends At the time the practice of welding steel plates together had been used for structural joining and as appearance mattered the sight of riveted plates used for the majority of steelwork did not match the expectation of the owner Thus all external and any exposed internal riveting are double and flush Even in the main and crew s galleys carefully finished steel has been used as the walls are left bare and enamel painted A similar attitude to design applies to the engine skylight that is accessible to the passengers as it lies in the main deck i e made of teak and glazed with thick wired clear plate glass At the aft end of the deckhouse the extended sides formed a shelter indicating the leisure time usage of the deck during life at sea Moreover internal joinery work was delicately fitted For example the owner s office is furnished in dark mahogany and the deck salon in polished walnut and equipped with a fireplace The dining room despite having a boiler to heat the cabin space is also equipped with a fireplace which indicates
