Serenity 70 Description
In current times when the industry is concentrating more and more on larger yachts, Serenity 70 is one of the few motor sailers that is available for charter in the East Med which is modest in size and budget without compromising on luxury and comfort. She has a very cosy honeymooner master cabin with a white interior and four portholes that flood in reflections from the sea. The remaining two double cabins are smaller in size and ideal for children or younger adults, though throughout her charter history this vessel has successfully accommodated six adults during many charters. Taking into consideration that guests will spend almost all their time outdoors, the limited space of the two double cabins is over shadowed by the comfortable aft dining area, inviting flybridge, ideal forward sun tanning area and the variety of amenities and water toys that you would normally only find aboard much larger vessels. The salon is very functional and includes a traditionally designed bar area with high seats facing panoramic views of the outside that is just perfect for enjoying an evening drink with friends and crew.

Serenity 70 Guest Reviews
Hidde Frankena, NL - SERENITY 70 (2013)
The trip was fantastic for all involved. Like last time also this family considered it the best vacation ever. It is clearly a very strong concept: a nice boat, great environment and beautiful water/bays, the freedom to go wherever you want to go, a great cook (Alpay is really impressive), a great captain and boats man. What also was striking for them (we already knew this) was the friendliness and service mindedness of the Turkish people: the crew but also the people in restaurants, etcetc.
Tom Kudelka, AU - SERENITY 70 (2013)
Really cannot be much better! Will come back if possible. Great yacht, great crew, food unbeatable!
Bill & Kay Randall, AU - SERENITY 70 (2013)
The cleanliness of SERENITY 70 is a credit to the crew. Especially Ramo who does not stop wiping and washing inside, deck and hull. Every part of the boat shines! Adem, Alpay and Ramo are a fantastic team and work extremely well together, whether it be the running and crewing of SERENITY 70 or keeping their guests happy and well attended too. They always have a smile on their face!
Michael & Johanna Wald, USA - SERENITY 70 (2011)
Everybody went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. It really was a perfect experience - we have done a lot of travel and this was best care we´ve ever received.
Mark & Jayne Wingate, US - SERENITY 70 (2011)
Adem was the penultimate professional - taking care of all our needs while constantly watching out for our safety. Alpay´s cooking and demeanor were great! Always friendly, helpful and the food was amazing! Ozan was continually watching out for every need, and was very good at the perfect blend of congeniality & professionalism. Unbelievable experience!!!
Michael Weibel, CH - SERENITY 70 (2011)

This is the most personable and accommodating crew we have EVER HAD!!! This was a stress-free and relaxing week. Every wish was met with a smile. I would recommend this boat, captain and crew to all my friends who like to travel. We hope to return next year - there is no better recommendation than that.

Adam was very responsive in planning the route and we loved everywhere we went. We were after privacy and seclusion and we got it. THANK YOU!
Mr & Mrs. Champion, AUSTRALIA - SERENITY 70 (2008)
The whole experience far exceeded our expactations. The boat, the crew and the food was fantastic and with a great service. Loved TURKEY!!
Alexandra Cussins, UK - SERENITY 70 (2007)
Such a wonderful holiday we could not fault it. All thanks to the wonderful crew who made our stay so thoroughly enjoyable. The food was absolutely excellent so healthy and so many little surprises. It was the personal touches and the way the staff looked after us that made the holiday all the more special. Much thanks to Adam, Ali and Alpay for such a memorable week. It was so short and we wouldhappily stay forever.
Jane Haskins, USA - SERENITY 70 (2007)
We weren´t sure what we were getting into when our friends invited us on a boat trip in Turkey, but our week on Serenity has surpassed anything we could have imagined. The crew is fantastic, the boat is beautiful, the food was amazing. We couldn´t be happier!
Mr. & Mrs. Rizzuto, AUSTRALIA - SERENITY 70 (2007)
Excellent crew. Cannot speak more highly of Adam, Ali and Alpay. Nothing was too much trouble. Our memories will last forever. Thank you.
Mr/Mrs Wheeler & Mr/Mrs Knott - SERENITY 70 (2006)
Excellent and More!! The experience of a lifetime surpassed all our expectations. Chef looked after Johns food allergies so well and provided everything he could have wanted and more! The crew fashioned some more comfortable lower steps for our party to get in and out of the water. They couldnt have done more. What else to say??! Just wonderful, relaxing out of this world! Hang on to that crew theyre good value! They didnt miss a thing
Denise Allen, USA - SERENITY 70 (2006)
This trip clearly exceeded our expectations. It has been one of our best vacations. The turquoise coast is stunning, beautiful sites and villages along the way, plenty of activities like kayaking, swimming, hiking and waterskiing, and wonderful coves and bays for overnight anchoring. The trip would not have been as good without the excellent crew and service, the delicious meals, and gorgeous gullet.
Fosca, SPAIN - SERENITY 70 (2006)
No comments! Everything has met our expectations. This has been one of our best holidays ever. It makes very well for two families of two children. You were amazing with the children and looked after all of us really well. We will all miss you, Mehmet, Adam, and Ali.. Serenity and Turkey. We hope to repeat next year.
Mr. & Mrs. Cussins, UK - SERENITY 70 (2006)
We have chartered many yachts around the world and often on this coast. This is by far our best experience. A wonderful yacht shown off to its best by a fantastic crew. Adam, a captain who recognizes the different preferences of passengers and tailors the cruise accordingly, always trying his outmost to give people the best time. Ali, such a great enthusiast for the Serenity company with great knowledge & energy and a desire to anticipate guests every need. And Mehmet, one of the finest chefs on the coast.
