YN19650 Project Aura

50m Steel Displacement

True blue

Blending practicality with luxurious detail, this 50-metre steel-hulled yacht has been optimised to deliver the largest possible volume while still remaining under the 500 GT threshold. Wrapped in a refined yet striking exterior, Aura makes a splash for all the right reasons.

A true bluewater motor yacht ideal for cruising, Aura features a displacement hull designed by Heesen’s in-house team of naval architects and engineers. Two MTU 8V4000 M63 engines provide a top speed of 15 knots to travel and explore new horizons. A bulbous bow allows her to glide through the water with ease. At 50 metres, this cutting-edge design boasts a range of 3,800 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 13 knots.

First impressions

British designer Clifford Denn has imagined a sophisticated exterior with generous outdoor space. A large sun deck promises the best of the yachting lifestyle, complete with jacuzzi, al fresco dining and sun loungers. Tenders and toys are stored on the foredeck. The spacious aft deck complements the part-enclosed sky lounge. Access to the water is made easy from the enticing main deck aft. The stairs on both sides lead to the fold-out swim platform. Built upon Heesen’s proven technical platform, Aura invites guests to step aboard, and chill.

Step aboard

Aura transforms a yacht into a home. The interior, imagined by British studio Reymond Langton Design, is defined by clean lines and surfaces. Billowy clouds of white and taupe give an ethereal elegance, peppered with sharp accents of sea greens and deep blues. Textured materials evoke a sense of calm, refined by the chicness of Scandinavian simplicity. Light, airy and spacious areas are ideal for entertaining. Natural light and well-placed ambience LEDs are twinned with views of the great outdoors. True to her name, Aura is a glowing hub of comfort on water.
