Yes the full title is the Auspicious Aurora.
With her distinguishing sports car look and sleek, dynamic exterior, the 50-metre Aurora remains one of the wildest launches of 2017. Aurora always make beautiful looking yachts but the Auspicious borrows heavily from supercars and that makes it one of the dynamic yachts we’ve ever seen.
The Italian stallion built for a young owner is designed to look every part a speeding demon, with the volume and interior comfort of a limousine. More Transformer than superyacht, we took a look on board to get a better idea of how life on this custom Rossinavi is like.
Designers Fulvio De Simoni and Rossinavi were instructed by the owner to create a vessel in which when an anchored would not feel claustrophobic and that they did. Other than they were given free rein when it came to the exterior.
A unique full-beam main deck layout was opted for to help get the most of the available interior volume as well as keeping exterior line sharp and clean. Exterior traffic flow is mainly limited to the upper deck where two side decks connect stern with bow as you pass the upper master suite (there is a second master suite forward on the main deck) and the wheelhouse.
There is a grand lounge are with a big sun pad and plush seating area. From here our two staircases lead to the foredeck area where guest looking for extra privacy can congregate.
The upper aft deck is where the pool is conveniently located right outside the main master suite.
The exterior of the Aurora is very masculine but the interior is a stark contrast. Aurora’s interior designer Achille Salvagni went for a toned-down and more lifestyle-friendly scene on the inside. Compared to the hard-lines of the exterior Salvagni manages to bring curves you wouldn’t expect to find after looking at the yacht from the outside. Velvet and organic material combine to bring the hard-faced Aurora to life.
However, step outside to the bridge and you are reminded of the beast you are currently on. The all-black control centre comes alive at night with red LED accent lighting that you can turn on to be come a James Bond villain. It is here where the captain controls the two MTU M93L engines that are responsible for Aurora’s 21-knot top speed.
