Vessel Overview

AURORA was designed by Ron Holland and built by Belliure Yachts in Spain, to the very highest standards.  Originally conceived as the largest yacht a couple or family can comfortably handle without crew, she is a very forward looking design, being one of the first, low-profile raised pilothouse sailing yachts.  She has a very pleasing profile, while offering an exceptional level of light and visibility in her partially raised main saloon.

AURORA is a powerful sailing yacht with simple sail handling systems, equipped for comfortable world voyaging. Her three-stateroom layout provides comfortable living aboard with all amenities.  AURORA had a comprehensive refit in 2012/2013 to outfit the vessel  with new mast and standing/running rigging, installation of new halyard  winches, main house windows, a new navigation electronics and A/V equipment, refit many ship’s systems, and complete cosmetic restoration  of the exterior of the vessel.  The owner has continually pursued a rigorous and thorough maintenance and upgrade program.

For the past 10+ years, AURORA has been an extremely successful charter yacht in New England and the Caribbean, and has built a stellar reputation among the most knowledgeable charter brokers and guests, with an impressive roster of repeat bookings.  Any buyer who wishes to keep AURORA in the charter trade will benefit from AURORA’s brand and her excellent reputation.  Visit her charter website at www.sailaurora.com.
