Equipment & Boat Data

What is Serenity and how is she equipped? This page shall serve as information source for everyone interested in the technical part andwhat I deemed necessary or good to have on board for bluewater voyages.

You might have seen some strange piece of equipment on a picture or in one of my upcoming videos. If this is the case, you probably will find some information here to sort it out. And if you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly, I’ll be more than happy to give you more details on specific topics.

That said, I have to mention that Serenity is for sure not at all equipped with the latest tech but all systems installed have proven itself reliable and functional so far.
