Motor yacht Aurora, hull one of the debut Nordhavn 120 explorer yacht has been sold by Pacific Asian Enterprises (PAE), the largest luxury expedition yacht built by the shipyard to date. The yachts owner has already christened her Aurora.

To be delivered in April 2012, the 36.75 metre superyacht carries a price tag almost three times that of the next largest Nordhavn explorer, the 26 metre N86.

The buyer of the explorer motor yacht Aurora is a previous Nordhavn owner who desired a design where lavish living was matched by a sound, seaworthy and seamlessly finished hull.

Hull one of the Nordhavn 120 will offer all the modern comforts of a private luxury yacht while incorporating plenty of space for both entertaining and relaxing.

Renowned interior designer Dee Robinson customise the yacht to her owner’s exact tastes and will use African cherry as the primary hardwood to create a simple, elegant yet contemporary interior.

The Naval architecture was by the in-house team at PAE who have produced an exterior design fusing opulence, quality, comfort, safety and sea-keeping ability.

Superior sea keeping capabilities are a key to the 120 motor yacht as with the rest of the Nordhavn line which are purpose built to handle the seas.

The four-deck N120 sleeps up to 10 guests in an Owner’s suite and four King size guest cabins

Motor yacht Aurora is to begin construction in January 2010 at PAE’s partner factory in Xiamen, China which has been specifically designed to accommodate the N120 line.

The Nordhavn 120 is ABS certified and with twin MTU 2000 M72 engines has a cruising speed of 10 knots and a range of 3,000 nautical miles at reduced speeds.

Shipyard Pacific Asian Enterprises builds fibreglass semi-custom Nordhavn motor yachts for long-range cruising and currently boasts a 15-boat product line in lengths from 12 to 37 metres.
