Aurora, a splendid Hylas 46 designed by German Frers, was built for blue-water cruising and is suitably equipped for a luxurious experience while crossing oceans. She's been well maintained and is fully outfitted for long-distance passage-making including a liberal complement of spares. Stowage is ample.

The Hylas 46 design has a generous beam carried well aft, providing excellent stability and more interior volume than yachts of similar length. The design incorporates many safety features including true waterproof bulkheads fore and aft as well as a Twaron (a Kevlar-like material) reinforced hull.

The design is visually stunning, and Aurora has received a steady stream of compliments for her superb good looks. Below decks you will find a beautifully appointed teak interior with a high-gloss finish. There are staterooms with ensuite heads fore and aft. The aft has a centerline queen-sized berth; the forward berth also sleeps two. In the saloon there is room to sleep three. The galley is truly capable of gourmet cooking.

Aurora is cutter-rigged, with in-mast roller furling by Selden, jib and staysail furling by Furlex. With her electric winches, she is easily handled by two.
