25m/83ft Motor Yacht Aurora was built by the Dutch yard, Moonen in 2004 and refit in 2016.  AURORA has since received a ‘no expense spared’ refit in 2021. Known for the expedition-style, AURORA is the epitome of seaworthiness without compromising on the finer things. Her latest fit out simply oozes opulence. Now back on the water, AURORA is a spectacular sight, ready to charm discerning charter guests. From the iconic Sydney Harbour to the pristine waters of the Whitsundays and islands of the Great Barrier Reef, AURORA invites guests to enjoy a premier charter experience unlike any other.

The interior offers a wide array of fine furnishings and décor collected from around the world, along with four spacious and luxurious cabins accommodating up to eight guests overnight, including a Master Cabin, a VIP, a double and a twin, all found on the lower deck.

The exterior boasts an array of superbly spacious deck areas for entertaining and lounging, including the flybridge, aft deck, and bow. An outdoor cinema on the flybridge gives you the ability to watch your favourite films under the stars. Al fresco dining options are available on the aft deck and flybridge, along with a formal dining option in the main saloon.

For those seeking a unique and intimate yacht for an event venue that allows for privacy and discretion, AURORA is the perfect match.

In addition to events and day charters, AURORA offers a fantastic platform for liveaboard charters with an array of water sports equipment for both kids and adults and is accompanied by 3 full time crew for day charters, 4 for overnight charters. Guests are in great hands with a fantastic captain, a highly experienced chief stewardess, a talented chef and an experienced deckhand.

AURORA will be available for charter in the Whitsundays for charter from the start of July until November 2023, with potential for charters in Far North Queensland, so please submit all enquiries.

In December AURORA will return to Sydney for summer.
