1986 Union Yachts Cutter 36

For the adventurers who dream to sail without feeling overpowered, ‘Aurora’ is a sturdy and properly rigged cruiser with rich clean solid teak interior and shiny teak and holly flooring. New glossy decks and nonskid make this ship look brand new and second life at sea without the worry-some teak decking penetrating the core. 

Aurora’s lavish use of interior  wood is attractive, warm and classic. The midship butterfly hatches bathe the saloon with natural light and excellent for ventilation without letting the rain pour in. The wash closet has a separate stand-up shower and good ventalation. The ship cabins are heated by a diesel fired convention heater and the water with a brand new 8 gallon heater. A U-shaped galley to port features S/S sinks, a four-burner stovetop and oven, Icebox and ample storage. To starboard is a hanging closet, chart table and aft quarter berth. 

A full canvas and eisenglass enclosure wraps the cockpit making sailing in any season a comfortable and dry journey. The custom stainless steel davit rack with twin winches suspends a AB 11′ RIB pedestal steering dinghy with a 15hp electric-start and tilt Honda outboard, a 135-watt solar panel and antennas. Stainless steel BBQ and cutting table and an aft anchor roller equipped with anchor + rode. 

The boom rests on a boom gallow forward of the cockpit and a Northsail stackpack cradles a  professionally cleaned full-batten mainsail. There is a genoa on Schaseffer furler and a staysail on hanks for cutter rig mode. 

All AC and DC electrical breakers, fuses, connectors have been updated and ran on new insulated stranded copper wire to meet ABYC requirements. (5) group 31 AGM have been dropped in for the house bank + (1) Group 20 AGM for the starter. ProWatt 600 Inverter, Xantrex 20 Amp Battery charger, BlueSky solar cell system and Ample Power DC monitor all added during the re-wire too.
