Aurora and Haida yachts in Venice, ItalyPhoto: William SmithSeen here side by side are the two German-built  Aurora and Haida 1929 superyachts in Venice, Italy. Some 88 years separate these two vessels with Haida 1929 dating back to the year 1929 when she was launched at the Krupp Germania Werft in Kiel. Commissioned by millionaire yeast magnate Max Fleischmann, Haida 1929 has sailed under a number of high-profile owners since her launch nearly 90 years ago. In 2018, she was delivered to her latest owner following an extensive 18-month restoration at the Pendennis shipyard in Falmouth, UK.

Having recently returned from an extensive cruise throughout the Pacific Ocean, the 74-metre Aurora has returned to the Mediterranean with Venice as one of its first ports of call this season. Built in Rendsburg under the project name Gatsby, the Lürssen motor yacht was completed in 2017 as a custom project designed by Winch Design. She was designed with hosting large groups in mind and boasts generous interior and exterior spaces. On board, she accommodates up to 16 guests over eight staterooms.
