Held in the breathtaking surroundings of Çiragan Palace Kempinski in Istanbul, Turkey, this year’s seventh annual “World Superyacht Awards”, which honor the finest new superyacht builds, awarded the megayacht built by Fincantieri Yachts, the M/Y “Serene” the best new yacht in 2011 in the category “displacement motor yacht 3000gt and above”.

Organized and promoted by “Boat International Media”, the prestige event was attended by all the main operators in the sector, from the top builders to high profile luxury yacht owners.

Delivered last year by Muggiano (La Spezia) shipyard the M/Y “Serene”, at 134 meters long, is one of the ten largest yachts ever built in the world and one of the finest in terms of sophistication and technology.

Designed in accordance with the maximum class of international safety regulations for passenger transport the MY “Serene” has seven decks, a hangar and two helicopter landing pads. The vessel also features a large sea-water pool which can accommodate service craft and a submarine with a diving depth of up to 100 meters. There are 4,500 square meters of interior space including 2,700 square meters of super-luxury designed by Pascale Reymond from Reymond Langton Design, one of the industry’s most famous designers.

The “Serene” marks Fincantieri’s entrance into an exclusive market sector, where the company can draw on its wealth of expertise in the construction of sophisticated, highly innovative vessels combining cutting edge design and state of the art technology.

Fincantieri is devoting increasingly substantial resources to this market in order to offer customers ever higher levels of quality, design and style.

The company is currently building, again at Muggiano yard, a 140-metre megayacht, the “Victory”, on which work began at the end of 2010.
