s Aurora Boat Hire | Private charters - Sydney Boat Hire


A classic Dutch-built vessel by Moonen, Aurora was delivered in 2004 and refitted in 2016. Designed by renowned naval architect Rene Van Der Velden, Aurora built in Northern Europe by one of the worlds most renowned shipyard.

Aurora features a steel hull design, this 85ft Superyacht can accommodate 8 guests amongst 4 cabins. Boat hire on Aurora can safely cater for 36 guests for day and evening cruises. She boasts luxury, class, and elegance that all complement each other. Not only is this vessel aesthetically pleasing, but Aurora can also entertain guests amongst 3 different entertainment areas. This is the perfect summer boat because of her huge sun deck. But because of her spacious enclosed aft deck, she is a versatile vessel that becomes suitable in the colder seasons.

We recommend Aurora for days out on the water or even birthday cruises on Sydney Harbour.
