Builder/Manufacturer Lien Hwa

Serenity was designed by the legendary Ted Hood, built in the reputable Lien Hwa boatyard in Taiwan and launched in 2000, and has since traversed the world’s oceans.  She is an extremely capable vessel with a fully enclosed pilot house with full controls.  She has twin diesel engines that provide the ultimate in safety.  Having crossed the Atlantic twice with shorthanded crew, 50 knot winds proved no worry for her.  All of the sails are hydraulically controlled, meaning push button furling; mainsail furls into the mast and jib furls onto the forestay.  A very comfortable and spacious interior for hosting guests or doing long term charters.  The current owner did charters in the Caribbean and Med with her.

The price reflects current maintenance needs and the owner will negotiate refit costs.  Owner financing with collateral is available for US citizens, up to 4 year term.

Contacts and quotes for refit works are available and will be provided to serious buyers.

Currently the vessel is berthed in San Juan, Puerto Rico.  An easy flight in and out of major hubs in the United States with many hotel options.
