Project Serenitas II under construction at Mengi-Yay
by Chris Jefferies
The 31.7 metre Project Serenitas II is under construction at Turkish shipyard Mengi-Yay, it has been revealed.
This steel and aluminium yacht is the follow-up to the yard’s 2014 launch Ocean Dream, which was built under the codename Project Serenitas. As before, Ginton Naval Architects provided the exterior styling, however Project Serenitas II will vary from her sistership in having interiors by Guido De Groot Design.
Built on speculation and currently offered for sale, Project Serenitas II is being project managed by Uri Rotshtain of Yacht Marina Management. Launch is scheduled to take place in June, ahead of a planned public debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival.
Accommodation is for ten guests split between five staterooms, including a main-deck owner’s cabin, three doubles and a twin, while the crew quarters allows for a staff of up to five people.
The main-deck saloon features an L-shaped seating area just aft of the formal dining area, while the amidships galley provides separate access to the crew area, allowing for discreet service at all times.
Guests will have plenty of options for relaxing on deck, with a spacious flybridge and foredeck seating area.
Tender storage is provided on the upper deck of Project Serenitas II, with room for a five metre RIB and a Jet Ski.
Power will come from a pair of 497hp Caterpillar C12 engines for a top speed of 13 knots, while the total fuel capacity of 34,150 litres allows for a maximum range of 3,600 nautical miles when cruising at ten knots.
