The property investor is an active philanthropist. Through his Yianis Christodoulou Foundation. The foundation's mission is to empower under served children and their families. To reach their full potential and improve their livelihoods. And take advantage of economic opportunity through education and social projects.
He lives with his wife Maria in Monaco in a large apartment. We believe he also owns a property in London.
The Zeus yacht was built as Eco for Mexican mogul Emilio Azcárraga. He was founder and former CEO of TV and media conglomerate Televisa. After he died in 1997 (onboard his yacht) the yacht was sold to Larry Ellison. He named her Katana.
When Ellison’s new yacht Rising Sun was delivered, he sold Katana to Aidan Barclay. Barclay named her Enigma. Christodoulou also owns a 165 ft Mangusta, now named Zeus I.
The yacht was purchased in 2017 for EUR 48,5 million. Before that she was known as Enigma. She was owned by Aidan Barclay.
The yacht’s name is probably related to his Zeus House in London.
Zeus is designed by Martin Francis. She can accommodate 15 guests and a crew of 21.
She is powered by a General Electric Gas Turbine, in combination with Deutz diesel engines. She has a total power of 28,500 hp.
Her top speed is 35 knots. Her cruise speed is 19 knots.
The yacht has an amazing interior. Her original interior was designed by Francois Zuretti. But she has since been refitted twice. And received an all new interior.
We are not sure who designed her current interior. Please do send a message if you do.
The boat is not available for yacht charter. And she is not listed for sale.
