This is a spectacular example of the very popular Swan 651 model.
AURORA is hull #17 of 18 built. The owner of this 1989, Swan 651, took AURORA through a major refit in 2019 and 2020 in Europe.
In this refit the teak decks were replaced, new sails purchased, new electronics added, a water maker installed, along with solar panels, the engine and generator overhauled, new pumps fitted and all the deck hatch lenses replaced. Other upgrades continue to be made to AURORA today.
Her in-mast furling system along with a hydraulics winch package make her easily sailed short-handed. AURORA is an ideal family cruising yacht with four guest cabins and room for crew.
A viewing is highly recommended.
New photos coming soon.
