After successfully concluding her sea trials at the end of May in the Baltic Sea, Lürssen’s 74-metre superyacht – Aurora – left the Bremen-based shipbuilding outfit and is heading to the Mediterranean where she will enjoy her first season with her new owners.
The striking exterior and stunning interior design were delivered by the talented Winch Design team. The design also stayed true to the owner’s desire to enjoy the superyacht with his growing family. Aurora includes many “intimate and personal” areas. All her decks were built taking family spaces into consideration. Rich mahogany and stainless steel adorn the exterior profile, reflecting the romance of transatlantic liners and giving the yacht a timeless grace.
Aurora has authentic charm; she is a modern interpretation of an old classic, with many innovative features such as a large portlight to the central staircase and custom, state-of-the-art exterior lighting across each deck. Numerous remarkable artworks can be found on the bridge deck, which also features an aft bar for entertaining.
This elegant superyacht’s interior is based on the early 20th century Art Deco era, taking inspiration from influential artists and designers from the period. The interior is unique and following the specific vision of the owner, who was heavily involved in the design process. Furthermore, the full beam ‘sky lounge’ is one of the most impressive and luxurious areas of the yacht.
“At Lürssen, we believe in building a yacht through a dynamic team, and to execute such a comprehensive project, an excellent team is necessary,” says Managing Partner, Peter Lürssen.
“The owner’s family has enjoyed yachting for many years,” Lürssen explained. “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 unique design and expert engineering skills.”
