Custom built by Mengi-Yay Yachts in Turkey in 2010, SERENITY II is a 40m (131.2ft) luxury yacht. With her steel hull and aluminium superstructure, her top speed is 13 knots, and she cruises at 11 knots. Her engineering and external design comes from the draft board of Endaze Muhendislik, and her interior was conceived by H2 Yacht Design.
Known for her elegant lines, SERENITY II features walkaround teak decks and uses her internal space to capacity. Forward on the main deck, the unusual 180-degree windows create amazing views in the VIP guest suite, which also has private use of the foredeck.
The upper deck is mainly given over to the owner’s suite: an aft facing cabin with floor to ceiling sliding glass doors opening onto the aft deck for their private dining and relaxation. The décor is cool and luxurious in silver-grey and cream, upholstered walls and Macassar cabinetry.
Forward on the upper deck is the well-equipped bridge where full beam windows line the cabin creating an uninterrupted view for the helm.
Another full beam VIP guest suite is situated on the lower deck, this has a bed positioned at an angle to help prevent discomfort. The yacht also has zero speed stabilisers to smooth her motion when underway and at anchor. There are three further double cabins on the lower deck. SERENITY II accommodates up to 13 guests in six cabins.
For living space, the main deck offers a saloon with an open plan lounge-dining room and a bar, which leads a partially covered aft deck with an outdoor table and banquette seating. On the extensive sun deck, guests can dine outside at another large table, sheltered by the hardtop, or sunbathe on the sunpads surrounding the jacuzzi forward. Plus there a sit-up bar.
The tender is a 5.8m Golden Line G580 with 150hp Mercury, which is stored on the upper aft deck, with a crane to launch. A 4.2m Golden Line with 90hp Mercury is stored on the lower deck, accessed through the transom. Also a range of water toys: jetskis, wakeboards, waterskis, scuba gear and towables.
SERENITY II needs nine crew to operate to her full potential. The captain has a double cabin by the bridge, the rest of the crew quarters are on the lower deck, including a dedicated mess room.
Turn-key and ready for new ownership, SERENITY II has been well maintained and consistently upgraded over the years. In 2022 she completed an extensive flag and classification survey, and then received a full hull repaint in 2021.
