This week will see the eagerly awaited Nordhavn 120 luxury yacht Aurora set sail on her own bottom from Xiamen, China, bound for Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The 6,300 nm trip marks the N120#1 motor yacht Aurora’s maiden voyage, a sea trial by delivery of sorts.
For the past two months, the 120 yacht Aurora has undergone rigorous tests and surveys, having passed with flying colors. But this Friday, the massive yacht will take on her greatest challenge as a crew of Pacific Asian Enterprises, Inc. (PAE) staff, factory engineers, vendor technicians, and the boat’s esteemed owners bring her half-way across the world with just one planned stop less than 300 nm into the trip in Hong Kong.
The journey is expected to take approximately 28 days, and PAE is inviting all virtual crew members to accompany them on the historic delivery of the brand new Nordhavn queenship. Throughout the voyage, 120-watchers can get real-time tracking, current video footage, daily on-board commentary and trip statistics by following the special N120 delivery section.
