Yacht Zeus

The yacht Zeus was purchased in 2017 for EUR 48,5 million. Before that she was known as Enigma and owned by Aidan Barclay. Zeus was built as Eco for Mexican mogul Emilio Azcárraga, 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, who named her Katana. When Ellison’s new yacht Rising Sun was delivered, he sold Katana to Aidan Barclay, who named her Enigma. Christodoulou also owns a 165 ft Mangusta, now named Zeus I. The yacht’s name is probably related to his Zeus House in London.
