On the heels of launching a 36-meter (118-foot) megayacht in May, Tecnomar has splashed another megayacht, albeit a bit smaller. Aurora, part of its Nadara 30 series, tasted salt water for the first time on June 22.
As her series names suggests, Aurora measures 30 meters (98 feet). As part of the Nadara 30 lineup, Aurora emphasizes a blend of traditional and modern motoryacht styling. While it’s hard to see them in the launch photo, large windows wrap all the way around the main deck. The expanse of glass becomes even more expansive where the bulwarks lower. The Nadara 30 series emphasizes speed, too, and Aurora does not disappoint. Tecnomar says she tops out at 26 knots and cruises at 22 knots, given twin 1,825-hp Caterpillar C32 ACERTs.
Aurora’s styling and interior design are each by Tecnomar’s in-house team, Tecnomar Centro Stile. All staterooms, including the master, are on the lower deck. The owner’s stateroom is accompanied by two double cabins and two twin staterooms. This leaves the main deck devoted mostly to relaxation, though the galley and pilothouse are fully forward. More relaxation space lies up top, on the sundeck. Sunpads, settees, and a shaded dining/drinks area are the highlights. When the owner wants more shade, the crew can extend awnings. Alternately, if friends and family seek more sunning space, they can head to the main aft deck or bow. The aft-deck dining table can drop down for a fill-in sunpad. Permanent pads surround the hot tub on the bow.
For the owner’s privacy, the crew, housed in three staterooms aft below decks, have dedicated staircases.
