SERENE slips in to Auckland

SERENE slips in to Auckland

Unique in so many ways, SERENE is notable for her turquoise LED lights underwater and on-deck that give it an eeirie glow. It boasts a helicopter hangar, two helipads and a submarine onboard.

In 2014, SERENE was deemed the fifth-most expensive superyacht afloat, costing US$330 million to build.

SERENE was built in Italy and launched in 2011 after a three-year build period where no expense was spared. The impeccable luxury megayacht, more a ship than a yacht, 

There is an underwater viewing space and 12 luxurious staterooms for 24 charter guests whose every whim is attended by up to 52 crew members. The Owner's suite boasts an exterior hot tub on its terrace. This stateroom has a centred oversize California king bed, full walk-in dressing area and spacious ensuite bathroom.

SERENE has its own lift which links to a sea cabin on deck two, with a private swim platform. Behind the Owner's suite are a salon, lounge bar and library with a fireplace. There's an internal seawater swimming pool, a hot and a cold Jacuzzi plus jet stream swimming pool on the sundeck, as well as a library and an indoor climbing wall.

SERENE is returning to the Mediterranean for charter in the summer of 2015 after its sojourn in Auckland where her Owner is said to be enjoying the New Zealand pastimes of hiking, fishing and hunting, savouring the diverse scenery from alpine slopes and fjords in the south to sub-tropical beaches in the north.

Owned by Russian vodka impresario, Yuri Scheffler, SERENE is the largest yacht to visit New Zealand. Her visit is a coup for luxury tourism in NZ. She is wowing visitors to the waterfront precinct for the myriad festivals and events over the remaining weeks of the southern summer.
