Aurora - Oceanis 411 Clipper.
“A comfortable and well-equipped yacht with a great cruising layout. Looks the part too, with her smart blue hull and full teak decks.”
New chart plotter, vhf, mainsail and furling genoa for 2015 season, new cooker and sprayhood for 2016.
This yacht is now managed by our sister company
Seascape Scotland Yacht Charter Ltd
The Oceanis 411 has a super cruising layout with four comfortable sleeping cabins – 3 doubles plus a twin – plus a large dining area in the saloon that easily converts if needed, to a further double bunk. Two good sized heads/showers, a good sized chart table and a well-equipped & spacious linear galley, complete the interior.
With new electric windlass, powerful engine, furling headsail and main, and all sail controls led back to her large secure cockpit, she is as easily handled by a smaller crew as she is comfortable with a larger one. She is a great yacht to charter the West Coast of Scotland.
Interior fully refurbished in 2014, with all new upholstery.
Warm air heating is provided by a powerful Eberspacher hydronic unit, with hot and cold water at the galley and in the two heads/shower compartments.
Charter coded for up to 10, she carries full navigation equipment including twin GPS plotter units, one at the helm and the other at the chart table.
Her 550 litre fresh water and 150 litre diesel tanks, give her a good cruising range
Recent charterer feedback:
Some might think organising for a group of 17 to charter two yachts for three days might be a logistical nightmare....not with Sailaway and Seascape Scotland! Both Andrew and Wilson were extremely accomodating both with dates and boats when both were altering by the day. The flexibility and friendly advice helped no end in selecting the perfect duo of boats and suggested itinerary. Both Calico Moon and Aurora were excellent vessels packed full of features which made the trip a joy and a pleasure. With both boats benefiting from self furling mains and genoas the boats couldn't be easier to sail. The spacious interior of Calico Moon provided the perfect boat for a crew of 10 and the slightly smaller Aurora a crew of 7. Both boats have brilliant swim platforms which makes launching the tenders a breeze, especially so with the handy tender lashing points on the stern of Aurora.
All aspects of the charter service we received were top notch, the booking, the handovers, hiring of oilies and the boats. We were met with a warm welcome and encouragement wherever we went which puts Largs at the top of the list for our next yachting adventure. We spent the journey home dreaming of our next charter!
Thanks Andrew and Wilson!

This is to thank you once again for a fantastic week on Aurora. The six of us had a great time on a very comfortable boat that was easy to sail. I was particularly impressed with the level of equipment and especially in the galley - as good as I have ever encountered. This was greatly appreciated as the crew included a couple of keen cooks. I would unhesitatingly recommend you to others looking for a similar week's cruising. Jeremy Cross – Chartered May 2017
Seven of us had an excellent week on Aurora, pottering about the Firth of Clyde at the end of April 2016 in the non-seasonal snow, hail, strong Northerly winds and sun. The boat is well equipped, well kept and sails to order; the heater kept the cold at bay. Wilson is very straight forward to deal with and I would not hesitate to use Sailaway Scotland in the future.

Aurora was the best equipped yacht i ever chartered. New sails, perfect safety and navigation equipment and even the galley was appropriate to prepare an original bavarian "Schweinsbraten" (roast pork). Martin Straeten and friends chartered "Aurora" for a week in August 2015.
The weekend went very well. Aurora was great and we're already keen to sail again next year and would be delighted to charter again from Sailaway Scotland. Drew was extremely helpful and great to deal with. Aurora was very well equipped and more than met our needs. She handled very well in all conditions.
John Wrinn and friends enjoyed a long weekend on Aurora in September 2014.
Aurora is in excellent condition, very well equipped and all fixtures and fittings in good shape. She moves very well under engine power and is easily handled under sail, with the in-mast furling main and furling head making handling very easy. The high boom makes movement around the cockpit safe, and with spotless interior and roomy cabins she is very comfortable and a real pleasure to charter. We would be happy to take her out for another trip. Merv Hardy chartered "Aurora" in April 2014
