On schedule for an early summer delivery, the new 74-metre motor yacht Aurora has left Lürssen’s Rendsburg facility in Germany on an unseasonably snowy late-April day to conduct her first sea trials following the yacht’s launch last month.

Winch Design is behind Aurora’s exterior and interior who has delivered a timeless and classic profile with a generous interior that is said to continue the elegant theme.

Project Gatsby, as she was known throughout her construction, was sold by Moran Yacht & Ship who also managed the build of the yacht.
