The Serenity 64 has electric and hybrid motors.Advertisement
It has a cruising speed of five to six knots using electric power, or up to 16 knots using diesel.
The 64-foot boat can come in several different layouts.Advertisement
Now, let's take a look inside.
This model has a combined galley and saloon on the main deck.Advertisement
The cockpit table can fit six to ten people, with two more sofas that seat an extra eight people.
The lounge area in the saloon has a dining table that seats eight.Advertisement
Furniture is made from wood veneers over a honeycomb interior.
As one potential interior option, the yacht can be built with an extra-large master cabin that spans the full hull.Advertisement
In that configuration, there would also be two VIP cabins, each with their own bathroom, and one crew cabin.
Alternatively, the yacht could have four VIP cabins with en-suite bathrooms, plus a crew cabin.Advertisement
Bathrooms each contain a sink, electric toilet, and separate shower.
The master bathroom is larger than the others.Advertisement
It has a larger, king-sized shower, and an optional Jacuzzi.
All bathrooms have stone countertops and access to hot water, plus a rainfall shower.Advertisement
Each bedroom has at least a double bed.
Cabins can also have additional storage under the bed and built into lockers.Advertisement
Or, they can have extra lounge seating.
Each room also has a desk, plus additional floor storage.Advertisement
The master even has a walk-in closet.
A large storage area is available as an alternative for the crew cabin.Advertisement
The pantry includes a kitchen with cabinets for storage, a sink, and a cooktop.
The flybridge holds the engine controls and control panel.Advertisement
The other controls are at the helm.
It's located on the upper level of the yacht.Advertisement
It has three lounge seats, plus a sofa that transforms into a sunbed.
In case of bad weather, the retractable roof can close over the deck.Advertisement
The upper deck can also be a great place to catch a sunset.
