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.

Caribbean Cruising Begins 

Serena arrived in St. Thomas by ship and soon motored east and south through the islands towards Antigua. One early stop was in Virgin Gorda’s North Sound in the British Virgin Islands in a quiet anchorage in front of Prickly Pear island. When the anchor hit the sandy bottom of the sound, Serena’s Caribbean cruising season was officially underway.
