The build of AURA Yachts is accompanied by regular visits from a professional firm which ensures all guidelines a followed during the process. This results in meeting or exceeding the necessary safety standards required for Ocean going CE Certification.


Aluminium is AURA Yachts material of choice for building. The AURA 57 is just 15tons displacement. Aluminium allows for performance yet also allows the freedom for ease of customizations which doing in other materials would be much more difficult.


No one is the same so why should you have the same boat. We have built numerous yachts for people around the globe. Each owner has their own ideas on how their yacht will be laid out. We work with you on things like deck layout, rigging setup and interior design is in line with how you want YOUR yacht to be.


We strive to build with sustainability in mind. Solar, wind and other technologies are used for electricity generating. Battery and electric motor advancements are being made each year and the best are incorporated into AURA Yachts.

To truly provide a customised yacht, great detail and modifications can be required. Sinan has been working on CAD models of yachts for 10 years. During this time he has gained extensive knowledge in various CAD programs that has allowed him to not only make the visual customization for interior and deck layouts, but even more importantly, producing detailed 2D drawings and cutting files for CNC machines to create the necessary parts for building yachts. Every millimeter counts when striving for perfection and Sinan’s dedication and attention to detail make parts fit together the way they were intended.
