Aurelia looks spectacular in her (almost) Gulf Porsche Racing colours, which are stunningly continued on the 14ft Castoldi tender. A different ‘sports/racing’ theme is used for each of her four guest cabins and, by happy coincidence, the yacht is actually hull number 10, launched on the 10th and has her ‘racing number’ 10 applied to both quarters
While the standard layout for Heesen’s ‘37’ is a 5 cabin configuration, the owner wanted more comfort for guests and more space for the crew, so designated a guest cabin for the captain. The result is a more realistic 6 crew for 8 guests and everyone benefits from extra living space, plus a welcome and essential increase in laundry facilities. A further aid to comfort, especially when at anchor, is a pair of gyro stabilisers although these are also incredibly efficient under all conditions.
