1984 Westsail Kendall 32

  • Description

Seller's Description

Mona is a well found, well maintained cruising boat of traditional design. She was built from a bare fiberglass hull over a period of 6 years on the west coast by her original owner from a kit supplied by the Worldcruiser company, the makers of the Westsail 32. Her design is more similar to the original boats that Larry Kendall produced.

Her hull, rig and main appointments are identical to the Westsail 32, arguably the most prolific cruising sailboat ever mass produced. Her other design elements build on a rock solid concept and improve it in ways that make for a unique and in my opinion, superior, version of the production W32. The flush deck makes much more room down below and on deck, while increasing the strength of the vessel tremendousl. The addition of a pilothouse and enclosed cockpit create much more comfort for offshore cruising. The A-frame bowsprit platform is a much more secure platform for sail and anchor handling. Because her hull and rig are identical, parts and spares are still easily available and supported by an active owners association and parts company run by Bud Taplin, who worked for the original manufacturer and continues to be an amazing resource for owners.

The result is an amazingly versatile vessel, which many have written praise about. She is practical and elegant, rugged but surprisingly graceful. Her design, construction, and fittings are of the highest quality, but she has proven to be affordable to purchase, own, and operate.

Rig and Sails

Auxilary power, accomodations, calculations.

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio .311 Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64) 2/3

  • SA : Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D : Displacement in pounds.

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Ballast / Displacement * 100

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam 1.33 )

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

From :

The Westsail 32 goes down in history as the boat that launched a thousand dreams. She’s generally credited for starting the cruising boom of the 1970s which brought “the cruising life” out of the fringes and into the mainstream. Designed by Bill Crealock as a heavy displacement double ender for long distance cruising, this boat is the epitome of seaworthiness; built strong and heavy with huge interior volume. The trade off is in nimbleness; she is slow through the tacks and slow to accelerate. In the early years, often sailed by beginners on badly setup rigs, boat speed was often lacking and she was ridiculed as the “Wet-snail 32” among the bluewater sailing fraternity, however some of this reputation has been shrugged off in recent years. When sailed well the Westsail 32 can surprise.

The Westsail 32 started out life as a flush-deck Kendall 32 when Larry Kendall approached Crealock to design a heavy displacement offshore sailboat along the lines of William Aitken’s famous 32 foot double enders Eric and Thistle . It’s said when asked how big the market for such a boat, Crealock estimated 10-12 boats. The Kendall 32 was introduced in 1969 and production exceeded Crealock’s estimates with a run of 30 boats.

It wasn’t until 1971 when a young electrical engineer turned boatbuilder by the name of Snyder Vick who bought the molds did sales begin to take off. He had Crealock redesign the deck layout, adding a cabin house and a revised interior. The new company became Westsail Corporation and the new boat was dubbed the Westsail 32. “Westsail the world” was the advertising mantra, oozing adventure in far away places. So successful was the marketing campaign that by June of 1973 Time Magazine featured a four page spread on “the cruising life” including a large image of a Westsail 32 in a suitably exotic location. It caught the imagination of the American public. The boat sold in incredible numbers, and along the way set in stone the shape and style of American bluewater cruising boats for nearly two decades.

In total 830 boats were produced by Westsail. To keep up with demand around 400 of these boats were sold as hull and deck kits; requiring interior finishing by their respective purchasers. Kits were sold in various stages of completion; Hull and Deck, Sail-Away, and a complete boat. With kits owners could add any option they felt they wanted including ballast, bulkheads, rigging, etc.

Although the Westsail 32 was a runaway marketing success, the company did not enjoy financial success. The petroleum crunch of the 1970’s hit the company hard. Their sales process involved taking orders for boats at fixed prices and selling them out in the order in which they received them. This meant that the company was selling boats up to eighteen months later at prices that were considerably outdated. The company ceased operations in 1981. The molds got sold to P&M Worldwide and another 15 boats were sold in kit form before production finally ceased.

Configuration & Layout

The Westsail 32 follows a long line of traditional double-enders dating back to Colin Archer’s famous 19th century Norwegian pilot boat Regis Voyager which itself was influenced by Archer’s earlier work with designing lifeboats.

A cutter rig sits on top with a bowsprit forward and on some boats a boomkin astern. Below the waterline is a very full keel drawing 5 feet.

The deck arrangement has offshore work in mind. The lifelines are high and the high bulwark combine to provide a sense of security on the foredeck. The cockpit is suitably tiny as was the thinking for blue water sailboats, but it gets crowded quickly with more than two people.

Down below, there’s an enormous interior volume, definitely one of the largest and most livable interiors for 32 feet. There is a huge V-berth forward followed by the head, a port side dinette and starboard settee and a U-shaped galley to port and a starboard navigation station and quarter berth aft. An optional interior featured opposing settees and a centerline table. Later mods included a change in the head configuration and a sit down chart table.

The joinery was aimed more for function than all out beauty and the factory finish varied through the years. Many of the kit boats were finished by their owners superbly, however some are in serious need of TLC.


The hull is heavily built from hand-laid fiberglass in 12 layers with polyester resin resulting in a hull that ranges from 3/4 inch near the topsides to 1 1/8 inches at the turn of the bilge. The 3/4″ bulkheads are marine plywood and tabbed to the hull with fiberglass.

Ballast varied between boats, but always with at least 7,000 pounds. Some had 2,000 pounds of lead and 5,000 pounds of steel punchings. From 1974, cast lead was used in the keel cavity in three sections. One can easily tell the lead ballast because the keel sump is much deeper under the engine pan.

The deck and cabin trunk is fiberglass cored with two layers of half inch plywood, with an extra two inch plywood base to reinforce below the mast step. Many boats had teak decks at an unbelievably thick (and heavy) 13/16 inches. There were three versions of the deck molds. The first mold had a forward hatch and large heavy sliding companionway with a lazarette hatch that sat up above the deck. The second mold added a center skylight hatch, and the last mold added a cockpit locker, flush lazarette hatch and tapered black anodized aluminum stanchions with aluminum built into the mold for easy on off removal.

Later hulls had fiberglass gudgeons, earlier hulls had stainless steel gudgeons with a bronze pintal.

The hull to deck join with its substantial bulwark is strong, though not impervious to leaking.

The Westsail 32 has a reputation for getting cruisers where they want to go, though not very quickly. According to most owners this is falsely deserved. Motion through the water is comfortable, but the ride has been criticized by some as being relatively wet. Often this is a result of owners overloading their boats. While the boat can easily carry all she needs for comfortable cruising, she will be affected by loading her below her water line. Some owners report the wetness comes from the cockpit seats being flush with the side decks, so any water channeling down the side deck is likely to wet your bottom (some custom boats have this problem solved with a cockpit coaming). Further; later models had a 3″ hawse pipe added midships that eliminated much of water entering the cockpit.

As with many boats with full keels, the boat tracks well but trades this off for maneuverability; both under power and while under canvas. Acceleration is sluggish due to its large wetted area and light weather performance (without the correct sail combination) is nothing to brag about; 10 knots or more is needed before the boats starts moving nicely. The best point of sail is a beam to broad reach between 90 to 120 degrees off the wind with an optimal heal angle of 20 degrees, with good trade winds owners report the boat is capable of  7 knots which is its hull speed.

In the early days the boat had a terrible reputation under sail, perhaps not entirely deserved. Many owners were new to sailing and didn’t have the experience to make a heavy displacement boat perform well. The early rigs weren’t optimal, the mainsails were too big and the headsails too small. The boat gained a reputation for weather helm.

In more recent years the Westsail 32 has turned its slow reputation upside down. In 1988 David King skippered his personally modified** Westsail 32  Saraband to a Trans-Pacific Cup victory, a remarkable feat given the light wind conditions that year. Additionally we hear reports of owners logging week-long consecutive runs of 140 to 160 mile days during trade-wind sailing. Record runs aside, most owners can expect to average around 110 miles per day in the trades.

** David King has documented his modifications for other members of the Westsail Owners Association. The tweaks include subtle modifications to the keel and a revised rig with a smaller mainsail

Buyers Notes

The Westsail 32 has suffered few if any structural problems over the years. It has a solid hull and osmotic blisters that appear on older boats are not an issue with the Westsail.

It’s worth checking out the fuel tanks, especially if they are of black iron. Other areas worth a check are the bottom fittings on the boomkin and the bobstay. Look for signs of rot in the plywood cored decking and signs of fiberglass compression at the mast step. As with any older boat, if the standing rigging is original consider replacing them.

Look for a boat that has 35 hp or more, the original 25hp Volvo MD2B is often reported as insufficient for a distance motoring into adverse weather.

There’s an active owners association at , it’s recommended interested buyers contact them for advice. Additionally, Bud Taplin is an known expert on Westsail boats, he was the first general manager at Westsail, and is now active in providing advice and surveying services for prospective buyers.

As at 2014 the asking price of Westsail 32s are in the range of $30k-$55k USD. Realistically these boats sell 10%-20% below asking price with most trading hands between $30k-$45k USD.

Albin Boats Yachts For Sale

With origins in the Scandinavia, Albin Boats were built in the North Sea workboat design tradition to be capable of handling the very rough sea conditions off the Swedish coast. Albin Marine got its start in 1899 as a Swedish marine diesel engine and boat manufacturer.

The company’s first vessels were sailboats launched in 1929. Albin entered the US market in 1966 and established a global presence, but it wasn’t until 1969 that the first powerboat was introduced—the Albin 25 Double Cabin. During the 1980s, thousands of Albin offshore trawlers were built in Taiwan. In the late 1980s, focus shifted to “Downeast” cruising and fishing boats.

List Of Albin Boats Yachts On The Brokerage Market

  • Page 1 of 2

Some Albin owners have questioned the validity of the “Downeast” designation, but the style has been influenced by workboats, whether the Maine lobster fishing boats that originated the Downeast style, or the Swedish fishing workboats of the North Sea. The true Downeast semi-displacement hulls provide a safe, predictable ride at 12-18 knots in any sea condition, and go back to a long line of rugged ocean-proven workboats—sailing sloops and schooners of the 19th century with full displacement hulls that were relied on by generations of fishermen to take them out and return safely again in any weather.

When sail transitioned to power, the full displacement hull was modified to semi displacement; builders kept the long, narrow hull proportions, but shortened the keep (skeg), which is similar to a sailboat’s keel, though not ballasted. Eventually the Downeast hull developed into a longer, wider 3 to 1 length to beam proportion. The keel/skeg helps keep the boat steady, especially in a beam sea, minimizing rolling/heaving and also protects the boats running gear in case of groundings. And as engines got larger and heavier, fishermen’s workboats were built with flatter aft sections to support the engine’s weight and bulk, while retaining the traditional flared bow with wave-slicing fine entry. The Downeast hull design, built on 100-year workboat traditions, is optimized for a very comfortable, dry, sea kindly, safe ride in all kinds of sea and weather conditions.

Albin owners mention the same experience of seaworthiness and economical to run, though some later models, such as the 28TE (Tournament Edition series) were designed with planing hulls to satisfy the market demand for greater speed.

By 2007, as an established brand recognized for being extremely seaworthy, Albin was building trawlers, motor yachts, and tournament express yachts in a 147,000 square foot fabrication facility in Portsmouth, RI. Unfortunately, economic conditions in late 2007 hit the boat building industry especially hard and Albin was sold to Bladen Composites in North Carolina, but in 2009, Bladen was also forced to shut its doors. Some of the Albin molds found their way to C & C Marine in Bristol, RI, an experienced high-quality manufacturer of several top local brands.

Today, the only way to enjoy a handcrafted, diesel-powered Albin with its timeless lines and “North Sea Workboat” traditions, is with a well-cared for preowned Albin. Currently there are 32 Albins of varying models available in the USA yacht MLS ranging from model years 1976 to 2008. From 1976 to 1999 there are 16 models ranging in listing price from about $16,000 for a 1976 Albin 25 Deluxe to about $150,000 for a 1980 Albin 36 Trawler. From 2000 to 2008, there are 16 models ranging in listing price from about $79,000 for a 2005 Albin 28 TE Flush Deck to about $390,000 for a 2007 Albin 45 Command Bridge Sports Cruiser.

I hope this thread will serve to educate and stimulate discussion and knowledge about this form of construction or design, including an appreciation for the best that utilize this Flush design . And, I hope you will enjoy about these boats as I have.

I am not paid by anyone to write this (I have NO financial connection to the owners or sellers of these boats). My writing here on CF is simply a labor of love as I enjoy sharing noteworthy boats. My motivation? I am simply fascinated by boat designs, and consider FD boats interesting as a design category within boat building and design.

In this thread I will post photos and descriptions of boats I find that are Flush Deck (FD). This will be an "ongoing thread" or evergreen discussion that will contain examples of boats, links to information about the FD boat, opinions from owners of FD boats, photos of FD boats I find and generally anything about FD boats. FD boats are relatively rare, compared to Trunk boats, so you may see this thread get in the for a while, then pop up again when I find a new FD boat to display in this exhibition. I will continue to post what I find as I find it.

One thing to be aware of is that some boats may have variations such that one year or model may have flush deck while a variation of that boat may have a small or low trunk . Some FD boats will have a hard and some may even have a pilot house with a flush deck forward of the pilot house. So, there is some flexibility in what may be shown here and discussed. As I view many boats, I will include boats where the boat design has some aspect of a Flush Deck boat, even if it is not described as such in a listing.

I am not an expert on FD boats, though I have sailed and raced on some of them and admired them for many years. I encourage any CF members who own a FD boat to address the likely technical questions, and I will defer to their knowledge on technical issues. Consider me a guide or curator of the exhibition.

I encourage any CF members to participate and to contribute to this thread. Feel free to post your own finds, your own FD boats (post photos please), your own anecdotes about your experience with FD boats, or anything you find interesting about FD boats.

are for Illustrative Purposes
Occasionally I will post photos and a link to a boat that is listed (at the time posted) , but I have no financial connection to that boat or any boat or seller. I use these photos and descriptions because they are accessible and pertinent. I am not selling these boats. I am merely sharing information about boats I find and I post the link to help others here on CF who may be looking for a boat like the ones I find.

I hope it helps others to see a real Asking for a currently listed boat, that is my primary reason for doing it (and because I don't have time to answer requests for links to where I found the photos or boats). I do hope if someone does buy one of these boats, that they will then post some photos of it sailing or tell us about it.

Just remember I am not an expert on these boats, my post is not an endorsement of any particular boat, you should always do your own , and if it is an expensive boat have a professional performed. And as I always say: "Caveat Emptor."

I post the best photos I have found of a boat type to illustrate that model. The photos will be from a mix of sources. So, even if I post a listing to show you a recent street of a boat, I may be photos of that particular boat along with additional photos of sister boats of the same model but perhaps not the same year. These photos are to illustrate only. Remember that.


I hope you enjoy this thread and if you do, I suggest you subscribe to it so you will see the boats I post over time. It is simple to subscribe to a thread on CF, you simply use the drop down Thread Tools menu or simply post a comment (even a simple "I like this" will do) in the thread and you will be automatically subscribed. Be aware that also means you will be notified each time a post is made in the thread. That can be annoying if it is a hot topic. You can choose how often you want to receive notices about new posts in the thread or you can choose to not receive any notification at all. I subscribe to MANY threads, but usually choose the option for "weekly" notifications of new posts for special threads I want to .

I think subscribing is a good thing to do, if you want to see new posts on a topic of special interest, especially if you are an infrequent visitor to CF and most especially if you are looking for a particular type of boat and want to see the "sale listing" notifications ASAP. I also use my CF to quickly see which of my subscribed threads has had activity, and then surf to it from there.

I mention this because this thread may only see sporadic due to the more rare nature of the topic boats.

And as I have learned while looking for relatively rare boats, The best opportunities go fast, and I have missed more than a few outstanding boats because I was too late in the process (others learned about the boat before me .comand acted before I could).

Fair winds to all!

I am sure you will find many descriptions online. My simple definition is:

"A boat where most of the deck forward of the is relatively flush or flat and there is no large trunk cabin."

As mentioned earlier, some Flush Deck (FD) boats may have a hard or a low trunk cabin or House, or even a relatively large Pilot House on deck. So, there are some boats that push the boundaries of a definition.


space or volume.

This can be very important on smaller boats, but is also seen as advantageous on larger boats too. This is particularly appreciated by sailors who or extensively.


boats often have a Flush Deck to allow their crews to efficiently and safely while changing .

Some traditional boats have flush decks to accommodate a or other on deck.

Some cruisers prefer a Flush Deck so they may keep a on deck, but in a lower position on deck.

to be shed off the boat more easily, increasing in heavy .

This probably originated as a way of designing a more "seaworthy" boat that could shed green during heavy . Colin Archer designed or influenced boats, themselves designed originally to be very boats used in even the most extreme conditions) often have a Flush Deck.

Some and "blue water" cruising boats feature flush decks for these reasons. Examples include the latest high tech IMOCA boats and many others. If you watch a video of the fast IMOCA boats sailing, you will often see the green water rushing over and off the boat deck as it pierces waves at high speed.

This is what some consider one of the most noteworthy and "ultimate" cruising boats. Designed by Steve Dashew to be sailed by a couple (he and Linda, his wife) and to have outstanding performance and very comfortable and safe features. It is remarkable that such a large boat was succesfully cruised for many miles by a couple. It broke many boundaries of what was considered possible at the time.

There is extensive information about BEOWULF on the Dashew website, including many photos of it. I will post a few photos here to illustrate what many consider an admirable boat that is designed with a Flush Deck.

You can learn about Dashew's other boat designs (also FD boats) via this link:

Steady's NOTES:
Notice this boat has a rather large Hard Dodger (or a partially enclosed pilot house) where the Dashews will sit while on watch, using a control to adjust the .

Each of Steve Dashew's significant sailboat designs (SUNDEER, DEERFOOT, BEOWULF) have had a Flush Deck.

Dashew writes about this in his book "Offshore Cruising Encyclopedia" and describes his view of why he prefers a FD. You can read a free copy of that book via this link. I highly recommend that book, and I read it cover to cover many years ago (1989) and enjoyed it immensely. It is full of insights into cruising boat design and gear. It is one of three free that Dashew has made available for download. Highly Recommended!

The Flush Deck on a like this can provide more in the , making it more comfortable below. But, it also allows for safer on the foredeck, as oftentimes small boats with trunk cabins have very narrow decks and small foredecks. This was particularly important in the days before became popular.

I am posting this humorous for a bit of levity, but also to show how a Flush Deck can be a great place for lounging, by a weary crew, sunbathers, or others.

Steady's NOTES:
I first saw these boats sailing when I was racing on Bay. They were eyecatching because of their distinctive Flush Deck, , and schemes. I admired them, and heard a lot of good things about them.

Here is a brief to this Flush Deck boat that has many fans.
I will include some links to two of this design, and I am sure if you do some searching on the net you will find much more written about them.

While some may not find them "pretty" as boats, I think a boat's beauty really is in the eye of the beholder, and sometimes a functional design is elegant for simplicity, and can be considered another type of beauty.

When I look at these sailing, I admire them. When I look at them in large photos, I admire them. I only regret I have not yet had a chance to sail on one yet, but I hope to change that in the future (Anyone have one I can sail on?). I think they look distinctive and well designed for a small boat. They are a .

Some were built in (40), some in GRP (150) or .

This small boat has a Vberth and could be used as a "pocket cruiser" but be aware the is at most 48" so it is a bit cramped in the cabin. It does have a large , so is better suited for . Most have a and boomkin.

. As, unless you get something like an 39, or a Sundeer, with windows built into the cabin sides, then you have to go on deck in order to see anything.
And that's hard on some folks, especially those with weak stomachs.

Albeit, adding your own/more windows is an option. But you've gotta' keep up on the maintenance on their . Plus, they add a touch of drag. Though nothing worth fretting over, unless you're match racing.

But with a few deck hatches, & a couple of prisims or deadlights set into the deck, the is actually quite good down below. And yeah, they feel pretty spacious as compared to boats with coach houses of the same size.

I LOVE those older Swans, & have done some Incredible racing, cruising, & deliveries in them. And would snap a good one up in a heartbeat.
You might want to look at ones which have had several taller masts added, as the S&S era Swans were heavy for the amount of sail area which they had. And much of their light weather performance depends overly, on jibs which overlap heavily.

Like I prefer to sail at windspeed, or 2/3 of it all the way down to 5kts or less. And my of thumb to be able to do that is to shoot ffor an SADR of 25, with your light air ... meaning, the upwind type.
Which, even on a heavy Swan, is doable, with a roachy main & a Code 0. And or a detachable sprit, for a light air that you have a sew a Kevlar/Vectran/Spectra luff or tape into/onto. It's a simple job to do/have done to a light #1.

The only drawback on some of those Swans, is the . As basically there isn't one. There's pretty much just a sliding set into the deck, with a grab bar on either side of it.
Which can make entry/egress in heavy weather a much more physical chore. And require a lot more upper body strength & balance.

Plus, it's a good bit harder to seal the completely. Be it via coamings & the hatch's build in rails. Or, via a dodger. Which can be tough, to impossible to rig on such boats. And best, you can do something akin to a pram , or a solid version of same.
Though Ann T. & Jim Cate came up with a good hard dodger on their flush decker, so it's possible. And I've got a few links & tips if you get to that point & get stuck/want more info.

Thus, protection for the helmsman is a bit tougher to come by. But you can sit under the pram & steer with the AP . When she really needs "a hand on the wheel" in the bad stuff. Though they're enough of a dream to when it's like that, that often, you up reveling in it... for a while anyway, depending on the Sea temp.

Bottom line: IMO, if the boat's solid, & the price fits, snag one. They'll always be classics... for a reason. And they handle weather with aplomb. Especially as compared to 90%+ of everything else.

flush deck sailboats for sale


SERENISSIMA I is a bespoke 47-meter tri-deck superyacht crafted by Mengi Yay, one of Turkey’s leading construction yards renowned for building custom yachts since 1964. In recent years, they have maintained a significant presence in the sub-500 GRT market. Boasting a robust steel hull and lightweight aluminum superstructure, this new construction is due for delivery in August 2024. Collaborating with naval architect Van Oossanen and acclaimed design studio Nuvolari Lenard, SERENISSIMA I has left no stone unturned, utilizing every available space for either relaxation or entertainment.

At the heart of SERENISSIMA I's design is an upper private owner’s deck, offering sweeping views and private outdoor space. Her two Jacuzzis—one nestled on the sundeck and the other situated on the owner’s deck aft—and a gentleman’s lounge with a cinema room, complemented by a drop-down balcony and walk-in wine cellar, contribute to her immersive onboard experience.

SERENISSIMA I showcases a contemporary and airy interior. The traditional aft main salon and dining room lead through to the midship guest lobby. She welcomes 10 guests in five beautifully appointed cabins. The master cabin, situated on the bridge deck aft, boasts a walk-in wardrobe and a lavish en-suite bathroom with sea-view windows and direct access to a private deck adorned with a small dining area, sunpads and a Jacuzzi—a sanctuary of tranquility. The lower deck features four additional guest cabins, including twin en-suite cabins forward and aft cabins that can be configured as doubles or opened to create a full-beam VIP suite. Nine crewmembers are welcome in five crew cabins on the lower deck. Beyond the guest accommodations, SERENISSIMA I features an elevator connecting all interior decks for effortless movement throughout the yacht.

Exterior designs by Nuvolari Lenard elevate SERENISSIMA I's aesthetic appeal. The main deck aft accommodates the primary guest tender to port, with additional guest seating. The central staircase leads down to the generous swim platform and there is a secondary tender garage forward on the main deck to accommodate the rescue tender and Jet Skis. Walkaround side decks on her bridge deck lead to the flush foredeck where guests can sit back and admire unobstructed views of the horizon. Her sundeck is the primary alfresco entertainment space, boasting chic glass panels midships to split up and shelter the aft area. Forward is a large Jacuzzi flanked by sunpads and a dining table for 10 can be found under the hardtop shelter. There is a cozy firepit aft, perfect for conversations and relaxation under the stars.
