AURORA is the best of both worlds: an ideal blend of hull construction technology well ahead of her time and timeless, high-quality materials and finishes that are rarely found in new boats today.  Her fiberglass hull is cored using closed-cell Airex foam that will provide everlasting strength and an interior finished in teak to exacting standards and timeless design.  Having recently undergone a comprehensive refit, AURORA is a vessel that offers unmatched comfort both at anchor and offshore.  Having 4 staterooms and generous living spaces, her versatile layout would be ideal for a cruising family or charter boat.  Please review the listing for details on her  extensive refit and be sure to watch the detailed walk-through video.
