Winch design created the exterior and the interior with a family-oriented approach, also leaving many areas intimate and personal. Moran Yacht & Ship acts as the owner’s Project Manager.
Her standout features include a large portlight to the main staircase and the custom exterior lighting across each deck. On the bridge deck are a number of artworks and an aft bar.
Her interior is based on the early 1900s Art Deco era, taking inspiration from influential artists and designers from the time period. The interior follows the vision of the owner, who was heavily involved in the design process. The master suite is based on antique artworks and each guest cabin boasts some individual characteristics. The yacht also highlights the full beam skylounge.
Peter Lurssen, Managing Partner of the shipyard, said: “At Lürssen, we believe to build a yacht, it is vital to work as a team, and to execute such a comprehensive project, an excellent team is necessary.
“The owner’s family happily enjoyed yachting for many years,” he explains. “After gaining so much experience, they had no doubts with whom to build their first bespoke yacht. We are happy that we have met the high expectations of the owner, both in terms of product quality and being able to deliver within budget and on time. We are looking forward to Aurora finding her place amongst her peers as a remarkable statement in large yacht construction, based on a strong design and expert engineering skills.”
