Take a glimpse at New Mondomarine SF40 Superyacht SERENITY

August 06, 2015

Take a glimpse at the all-new Mondomarine SF40 superyacht SERENITY in the video below, made by ‘perfect’. Superbly penned by Luca Vallebona – SF Yachts, the 42,30-metre motor yacht SERENITY will be displayed at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show in September.

Boasting a clean and well-balanced design, the Mondomarine SF40 luxury yacht SERENITY offers comfortable accommodation in a lavish owner’s cabin on the main deck and four guest cabins, all positioned on the lower deck. The owner’s cabin features an unusual layout on two semi-levels: the upper part is fully immersed in the surroundings, with an open view to the fore, while the lower area is more intimate and private, with light coming from the top and from the sides, resulting in a relaxing and hideaway sense of this space.

Day 1 – Gocek

Kayak Emerald Islands

Start your motor yacht Starfire adventure with a steaming cup of sweet mint tea on the deck as you sail into the azure hues of Gocek. Superyachts are strung like diamonds across the velvet sapphire sea and the only way to explore is to take a kayak and paddle out to the slips of dreamy green islands that surround the picturesque port. Witness your first Turkish sunset with a dazzling supper soiree and watch the lights of this pretty town glitter against the darkening skies.



Day 2 – Fethiye

Silver Trinkets and Turkish Scrubs

Sail into the fishing delight of soft lit Fethiye and after a bright morning swim diving off from the deck of MY Starfire you can explore the town. Pick out from fresh seafood from the market for your personal chef to cook for supper. Shop for silver chessboards, glass lanterns and ornate ceramics before hiking the emerald draped hills to see the ruins of the Knights of Rhodes. This afternoon you can enjoy a rich foaming scrub in a traditional Hamam before slipping back on board My Starfire for a tranquil night of cocktails and relaxing in front of the open air cinema.

Honey and Pines

Olive groves, tangled vineyards, beehives and natural beauty – this is what is waiting for you on the shores of Bozburun. Those seeking a true taste of Turkey will fall in love the second they lay eyes on this sleepy coastal village. Start the day embracing tradition as you sip dark sweet Turkish coffee on the sundeck and pick at your honey soaked baklava. Read a book on the creamy soft sun lounger and watch the locals pass with a smile as they head for deeper waters to fish. In the pale light of the afternoon you can wander the ancient ruins and Grecian pillars strewn around the hillside and stop to barter with the old women selling honey amongst the pines. Finish the day with a starlight tender to the Turtle Beach of Dalyan where you can watch the mamas hatch their eggs beneath a full round milky moon.
