Penciled by Luca Vallebona and delivered in 2015, she may project calm and composure but the 42m semi-displacement M/Y SERENITY isn’t idle at all. Following her world premiere at the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show, this unconventional yacht set off really quickly on a 4,500-mile maiden voyage in the Mediterranean, down the Suez Canal and to Dubai via Oman. Her unique layout and interior design earned M/Y SERENITY a spot among finalists at the 2016 Show Boats Design Awards and at the World Superyacht Awards.
Luca Vallebona drew the fresh and modern interior and exterior lines of this semi-displacement yacht with innovative styling which conveys a timeless sense of luxury, immune from the influence of fashion and very focused on enjoyment and on the rediscovery of the essence of travel, adventure.
From the owner’s brief for great views from his cabin and absolute privacy from the crew, Vallebona worked out an exterior styling with dramatically slanted fashion plates and dark, ribbon-like windows and dedicated the whole upper deck to the master quarters that, in addition to sleeping areas, includes a family lounge doubling as a cinema room. Outside, guests benefit from a whole range of options to mingle with family and friends or relax in solitude — from the sundeck with its infinity-style pool clad in shimmering Bisazza blue tiles and large sunbathing area, to the owner’s terrace and the main aft deck with its comfortable sofa. Last but not least, a huge swim platform allows everyone to enjoy direct contact with the sea.
The interiors follow the same clean design. The master cabin features a split-level suite with the panoramic bedroom on the upper deck and the huge bathroom with a stylish freestanding bathtub, beautiful mosaics and marble floor few steps down. Each of the four stylish guest suites on the below deck have an individual colour scheme matched by the bathroom’s onyx basin tops. Fancy touches are provided by elegant fabrics and decorative features such as the two vertical gardens hanging behind the bed heads in both double and VIP cabins.
But nowhere is Mondomarine’s expertise more visible than in the tidy and expertly arranged engine room, where all machinery and systems are easily accessible. Propelled by twin MTU 12V2000 M94 engines, all-aluminium Serenity achieves a top speed of 17.5 knots and at her eco speed of 12 knots provides a remarkable 4,500 nautical mile range.
