Serenity Yachts reaffirmed its commitment to sustainability this Earth Day, April 22, by continuing to reduce the yachting industry’s carbon footprint with its solar-powered vessels. Serenity Yachts’ next generation of vessels are not only green, but performance-driven and are made with today’s modern sea traveler in mind. While luxury has always played a large role in yacht design, green technology has historically lagged behind in the industry – until now.
Led by Executive Director Boyd Taylor, Serenity Yachts blends luxury and technology, creating a tranquil yachting experience. With quiet electric motors, the yachts allow all onboard to experience the beauty that our reefs and oceans have to offer without polluting and damaging them in the process.
Serenity Yachts strives to eliminate dependency on fossil fuel and is committed to building yachts that stand the test of time. Each part of the yacht ― from the carbon fiber hulls to the hydraulic flybridge ― is designed to maximize efficiency and performance. Every yacht that Serenity builds is fully customizable. Serenity’s shipbuilders are artisans and seasoned masters of their craft.
Serenity Yachts, which was featured in the annual Neiman Marcus Christmas Book, presently has two lines of vessels: the Serenity 64 and Serenity 74. Each is equipped with the latest technologies and offers a selection of the most cutting-edge equipment in navigation, entertainment, and smart home technologies.
- The Serenity 64 offers 65 square meters of SunPower® solar panels and can cruise indefinitely at 4-6 knots while still providing power to the onboard amenities. The vessel features a combined galley and saloon on main deck, four VIP cabins (each with their own en-suite bathroom), one crew cabin, and a hydraulic flybridge. Other layouts are available.
- The Serenity 74 offers 110 square meters of SunPower® solar panels and has the ability to cruise endlessly at 7–9 knots while still powering the onboard amenities. The ideal yacht for luxurious onboard living or chartering, it features a combined galley and saloon on the main deck, four VIP cabins (each cabin with an en-suite bathroom) and two additional cabins and baths in the forepeaks, that can be configured for family or crew (other layouts are available). The Serenity 74’s chic interior was designed with fashion in mind. The vision for the design was inspired by the keen style of former Neiman Marcus Fashion Director Ken Downing.
Serenity Yachts is constantly improving its vessels. The brand designs its systems to make them simple to upgrade once new and improved technologies are available. As solar and battery technology continue to accelerate, these yachts will only become faster and more powerful.
In addition to engineering custom build vessels and providing general refitting services, Serenity Yachts offers seafarers the ability to convert traditional gas-powered boats into more eco-friendly versions.
“We believe the future of yachting is in solar technology and want to show the world that yachting can be sustainable. Our solar-powered yachts are perfect for veteran yacht owners as well as first time buyers. Our performance-driven vessels provide a truly unparalleled yachting experience,” said Taylor.
“In addition to the sustainability and fuel savings, the quiet electric motors make for a much more enjoyable experience. There are no unpleasant diesel fumes or loud noise, just the fresh ocean air,” he continued.
