Preston Marina Lancashire UK|
This is genuinely a remarkable little boat...
Firstly, those who want a modern, sleek production sailing yacht probably won't like "Serenity"
However, those who are looking for a proven ocean passage making boat which is truly affordable, easy to manage and supremely comfortable for an intrepid sailing couple (or solo sailer), looking to do some serious sea miles in a boat with real character - read on....
We have known "Serenity" for many years here at Preston Marina, and all of her 3 previous owners.
The first owner, who built her we believe from 1997 to 2000, took her on two voyages from Lancashire to the Azores and back.
The second owner took her from Preston to the Caribbean and back.
All of this in a boat under 24 feet long!
The third owner has been studying to Yachtmaster level, while refitting and improving "Serenity" - but has realised sadly that now the refit is complete, he just does not have the time to enjoy her.
So...she is now reluctantly offered to someone out there who will appreciate that this is a serious sailing yacht that is ready for more voyages.

UPDATE (SEPTEMBER 2019) - The porthole on the port side above the galley does appear to have a slight leak resulting some minor cosmetic water damage to the wooden tongue and groove interior lining.
