1981 Allied Seawind II

New Bern, North Carolina


One of the best built small cruiser's of all time, The first fiberglass boat to sail around the world, and one of the best hull to deck joints in the industry.


AURORA is a fine passagemaker! AURORA is an Allied Seawind II rigged as a sloop instead of the traditional ketch, hull #124. She was designed by Tom Gilmer of Annapolis, MD, and built at the Allied yard in Catskill, NY in March 1981. She was one of the last Seawinds built and was personally equipped as their show boat by Brax Freeman, owner of the company. The objective was to show prospective buyers that Allied would produce a first class small yacht with quality products. Previously, the Seawinds were regarded as extremely seaworthy, but somewhat spartan and dull below decks. Freeman changed that perception with this model. See for yourself. Call to schedule a private showing.  AURORA is sound, reliable and a fine,comfortable sailing boat capable of taking two people anywhere in the world.


If you are looking to do some real offshore cruising put this on your wish-list. The current owner has gone thru this boat and has over built everything he has done so far. All new over-sized rigging, New Awlgrip paint on the hull, the bottom was coated with 6 layers of epoxy and 3 layers of barrier coat and 3 coats of bottom paint. The bow section was epoxied and Kevlar was added for extra protection. All new life lines and all deck hardware was replaced and set in epoxy. All new Thru-hulls. New fuel tank, New Garmin GPS, Monitor Windvane, New Jordon series drogue $2,000. New 12' Para anchor, Switlick liferaft, and a full 18x10 storage unit full of extras click on full specs to see the full list of gear and pictures.. The boat still needs a few things and needs to be finished, but could easily be ready for you spring and summer cruising. Still needs a stove and a head. The current owner was going to put in a compost toilet. The old stove was in bad shape so he got rid of it.
