The  23.8m / 78’1 custom Motor yacht ‘Serenity was built by Burger. This luxury vessel’s sophisticated exterior design and engineering are the work of Sparkman & Stephens. Previously named Electra (Silver Seas, & Harvest Moon). Her exterior is styled by the Sparkman & Stephens team who are also responsible for the entire engineering package.

Serenity withstood damage during Hurricane Ian. A 9′ storm surge lifted the boat over a concrete dock, and it rolled off the dock and floated on the other side. Water came in both engine room air intakes, but the boat floated. Struts, rudders, propellers, stabilizers, and exhaust cowlings were damaged. The TNT platform was ripped off of its brackets under the original Burger swim platform. The boat has been hauled out of the water since January; all of the above damage has been repaired, a new phasor generator is being installed, and Serenity is getting a whole new paint and varnish job.

The boat was purchased in January 2022 after both transmissions were rebuilt and was run to Sanibel, Florida, without an issue. Prior to Hurricane Ian, the boat was used on the west coast of Florida without any problems. This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a Burger motor yacht with a factory cockpit with all running gear rebuilt or replaced and stabilizer actuators rebuilt.

Key Features:

  • Serenity was previously owned by the Naval Academy Sailing Foundation for 7 years and lightly used. Current owner purchased the yacht in 2021 and did extensive hull and engine surveys including audioguage of the bottom and opening and inspecting water tank, black water and grey water tanks.
  • The engine and generators were tuned up in accordance with the survey recommendations and both twin disk MG 514 transmissions were completely rebuilt. Various other systems were rebuilt and air conditioning compressors were replaced.
  • Serenity was cruised successfully from Annapolis, MD through the keys and on to Sanibel, FL.
  • Serenity is a 78′ Burger cockpit motor yacht to which a TNT platform was added to the swim platform. The hull was extended under the swim platform to support the TNT platform; however, the TNT platform and tender were broken off during the hurricane, so there is no TNT platform now, but the brackets are still there. 
  • Both main engines were replaced in 2001 utilizing the original transmissions
  • 2 X 20KW Onans replaced in 1999, however, these were damaged during Hurricane Ian, and the owner is looking into making one good one out of 2 and installing a brand new 20kW phasor generator 
  • 3 staterooms aft with ensuite heads plus 3 crew forward
  • Bow Thruster and Naiad Stabilizers
  • The exterior was painted about 7 years ago and still looks presentable, however, will need touch-up from hurricane damage.
  • The original boat deck davit was removed when the TNT platform was added for a tender. The original tender area on the boat deck has been enclosed with railings and is now a safe open-air lounge area with a bbq grille complementing the covered flybridge.
