Serena

M/Y SERENA

The steel-hulled 74-foot motor yacht Serena was launched in 1964 bearing two of the most illustrious names in the maritime industry—designed by the Italian Carlo Riva and built in the Netherlands by the De Vries Brothers, who would later be known as Feadship

Six decades and several owners later, Serena has been restored to mint condition and serves as mothership to the Sparkman & Stephens-designed Dorade, launched in 1930 and still one of sailing's most active and successful ocean-racing competitors. The two vessels were built decades apart on different continents, but they are well-matched, both created by iconic designers whose boats revolutionized the boating industry. 

UNDERWAY


Winter Cruising in the Islands

Serena arrived in the Caribbean in November as deck cargo in St. Thomas, USVI. (See “Heading South, Serena Hitches a Ride.”) Once underway, she sailed east through the British Virgin Islands and across uncharacteristically placid seas to a winter home base in St. Maarten. Subsequent cruising took Serena south to St. Kitts and Nevis, and then to Antigua, farther east.
