About SERENE

Operating in the Bahamas and the Caribbean

Cruise the amazing azure waters and visit the fantastic BVI and other Caribbean islands as well as the Bahamas  in ultimate luxury aboard this beautiful streamlined Sunseeker Manhattan 73ft. This luxury crewed motor yacht is part of the Virgin Motor Yachts fleet at Nanny Cay Marina, BVI, and is available for fully-crewed charters.

‘Serene’ boasts many impressive leisure and entertaining areas within its welcoming and spacious open plan layout. Consisting of a luxurious main salon with multiple seating areas as well as a formal dining area, it can easily accommodate up to 8 guests. The top of the line, open concept galley allows guests the opportunity to watch their luxury chef in action as she prepares their personalized, gourmet meals.

‘Serene’ offers a high level of elegance and comfort throughout, with beautiful wood work and flooring that perfectly complements the warm tones of her furnishings. Her beautiful living space is topped off with large panoramic windows that will ensure you capture the spectacular views of the islands no matter where you choose to sit and relax.

‘Serene’ has large salon doors aft, which lead to an outside area which is equally as inviting. There is a spacious aft deck with excellent dining area where you can dine al fresco with family and friends while enjoying the cool sea breeze and watching the magnificent Caribbean sunsets. Guests can also head up the sweeping staircase to a sizeable fly bridge which offers great seating areas in the shade of the bimini, and large sun pads where guests can enjoy sipping on wonderful tropical cocktails in total relaxation. A large boarding ladder on the stern provides safe and easy access to the yacht. 

Offering plenty of cabin space below deck, the lower level of the yacht has 4 tastefully designed cabins that can accommodate up to 8 guests, each with its own en-suite bathroom and entertaining system. There is a magnificent full-beam master suite to aft, and a forward VIP, both with queen berths. The two additional berths are comprised of one cabin which has two twins that are on a track system which allows them to convert to a queen if guests prefer, and one cabin which has two twin bunk beds. Crew quarters are aft, and completely separate to ensure total privacy. 

With a cruising speed of 23 knots and maximum of 34 knots she is fast, yet virtually as comfortable at sea as when docked due to the well proven hull profile and design balance along with an excellent sound insulation throughout.

Crew Profile

Captain: Vlad Boshoff

M/Y Serene is very excited to have fantastic captain Vladimir (Vlad) Boshoff at the helm! Vlad is a native of South Africa where he grew up with a love of the ocean and yachting. Vlad has worked on yachts all over the world including; BVI, South Africa, Mozambique and the Indian Ocean. In spite of all his travels, the BVI has always felt like ‘home’ and after a brief hiatus back to South Africa,Vlad returned to the Islands full-time with his family in 2014.

Vlad has worked on sail and motor yachts from 45-97’ and has spent the last two seasons as captain and dive master aboard a very busy and popular catamaran here in the BVI. With over five seasons total experience navigating the BVI waters, Vlad knows all the ‘secret spots’ for guests to create a memorable, once in a lifetime charter holiday. Vlad is a very active captain, who is excited to be at the helm of this luxury crewed motor yacht. He will ensure an itinerary that includes the best locations in the BVI and looks forward to spending time engaging with his guests in activities such as scuba diving, surfing, paddle boarding, fly fishing etc..

Vlad is an incredibly friendly, outgoing and personable captain. He is always enthusiastic and upbeat, and his welcoming smile from the first time you step on board will set the tone for a fun and adventurous holiday you will not soon forget!

Chef: Chris Osman

Chris is a very adventurous and outgoing chef who is native of the BVI. Chris grew up in Tortola and has always enjoyed being outside and on the water. Living in the BVI, Chris has always been on or around boats, so it comes very naturally to be on board as a chef. Chris has spent much of his life exploring all around the BVI, so he can offer charter guests a chance to see some of the ‘secret spots’ the islands have to offer.

After exploring many career paths including landscape architecture, photography and marine engineering, Chris found his true passion in cooking. Chris has always loved baking, and a friend was opening a new restaurant and asked Chris for his help. Chris was instrumental in the successful opening of the fantastic waterfront restaurant, ‘Fish N Lime,’ at Soper’s Hole. While working as a chef at Fish N Lime, Chris often saw the charter yachts passing in front of the restaurant and soon left the land to work as a freelance chef on charter yachts. When the opportunity for a permanent role on Serene came up, Chris jumped at the chance.

When Chris is not on the water he enjoying hiking, gardening, baking, scuba diving, windsurfing, and restoring old cars. One of Chris’ most exciting adventures was spending 8 weeks climbing the Himalayas, including climbing to the advanced base camp on Mt. Everest. Chris loves meeting new people and looks forward to travelling more of the world in the future!

Testimonials

AWESOME TIME!

Getting back to work was tough J. We had an AWESOME TIME!  Vlad and Chris were absolutely the best. Such great guys.  The yacht was very clean and was so nice to be on for 3days.  We loved all the spots that we got to see which were new and fun.  The beach where we renewed our vows was absolutely perfect. Thank you for setting that up.  Kathy & Samuel May 21st - 24th 2017

Wow!

What an amazing experience onboard 'Serene'. Chris and Vlad were wonderful hosts. Chris, your meals were superb and we looked forward to each one. Everything was delicious!

All the best in the future, Sarah & Greg. April 19-26 2017


Fantastic

We can't begin to tell you both how much we enjoyed our vacation around the BVI. You guys made us feel like family from day one. Your hospitality and kindness is second to none. The meals were fantastic as well as all the activities. Can't believe I have to return to cooking LOL. Thank you again for everything, we had a deadly trip and will remember it for years to come.  Cheers to you both! Love, Mary & Steve.


Many thanks for welcoming us aboard Serene!

Vlad and Chris couldn't have been more accommodating and treated our family as their own! it is a blessing to be able to see and enjoy these beautiful islands and take in all their beauty. Our itinerary was perfect and we truly enjoyed every moment! Happy Spring Break and Easter.

New Year 2016/2017

This was a very special trip for our family whereby we renewed our wedding vows, all of which was co-ordinated perfectly by the crew. Every port and spot we cruised and adventured too was absolutely perfect, every day was a new adventure and we did not want the trip to end. We wish we could have extended the vacation by another week. We will return and look forward to meeting up with Captain Vlad and Chef Chris.  Thank you for making this vacation very special for my family.
