Serene attended the 2011 Monaco Yacht Show.
Work started in 2007 on Hull # 6154, which was delivered in 2010 as Serene. Designed by Espen Øino, with seven decks and a length of 134m, Serene was one of the largest yachts ever built at launch.
Fincantieri are more known for building military vessels - recently they launched the 244m Cavour Aircraft Carrier, for the Italian Navy. While Fincantieri was responsible for the major structural work, they struck a partnership[ with Benetti, before work started, and are likely to have drawn on their expertise in the finishing.
