Well, there's

,----[ C-h f eww-browse-url RET ]
| eww-browse-url is an autoloaded compiled Lisp function in ‘eww.el’.
| 
| (eww-browse-url URL &optional NEW-WINDOW)
| 
| Not documented.
`----

which can open a new buffer.  And that's used by

,----[ C-h f eww-follow-link RET ]
| eww-follow-link is an interactive compiled Lisp function in ‘eww.el’.
| 
| (eww-follow-link &optional EXTERNAL MOUSE-EVENT)
| 
| Browse the URL under point.
| If EXTERNAL is single prefix, browse the URL using ‘shr-external-browser’.
| If EXTERNAL is double prefix, browse in new buffer.
`----

So you'd usually start with one eww buffer and then follow links with
`C-u C-u RET' which would create a new buffer for the referenced link.

But you're right.  It seems quite strange to me that you can't call
`eww' itself with a prefix arg to make it open a new buffer...

HTH,
