Serena Rose is completely capable, comissioned and ready to do the job.
Sailing vessel Serena Rose is a 48' Sparkman and Stephens design number 1674-C1; one of 15 boats built by Sunward Yacht Corp, now known as Bennett Brothers. She is a true sister-ship to Walter Cronkite's Sunward 48, "Wyntje".
Serena Rose's hull was built in 1986 and after further refinements, she was commissioned in 1992. This vessel has some of the finest hand carved woodwork and joinery ever seen on a boat her size; rich in Honduran Mahogany, Teak, Cherry and Ash. Very unique wooden scrolls and inlays complement stain glass cabinet doors, handcrafted by master craftsman Cabrini.
This is a true blue water ketch that is very comfortable as a live-aboard as well as cruising. She has three staterooms and two heads and is outfitted for cruising comfortably.
Just some of her appointments and noted upgrades follow.
She is easy to see in Fort Pierce, Florida and will not disappoint!
The owners are wonderful record keepers and have a complete manual of all systems and operating procedures in place to pass along to the new owners.
I must stress that you will never see a boat like this again. Her pedigree is the best to be had and the joinery and artful care she has had is outstanding.

Serena Rose has the most amazing interior. Starting forward.....
There is a V-berth with filler forward. Light ash battens keep the room bright. There is plenty of storage with cabinets above the bunks and drawers beneath, plus a hanging locker.
Next aft to port is a stateroom with over and under bunks, huge hanging locker and drawers underneath. There is an opening port for ventilation.
The forward head (guest head) is next aft to starboard and features mahogany raised panel cabinetry with beautiful floral inlay pattern, ceramic tile floor, head, and sink.
Serena Rose has a wonderful main saloon. It is roomy and spacious, yet cozy. Natural light floods in from a custom circular overhead hatch and there are two more overheads that open for ventilation. The most outstanding note here is the woodworking. There is a combination of mahogany and cherry wood here that requires time to appreciate. Many pieces were hand selected for character and grain and the effect is stunning. There is a "L" shaped settee to port with a huge table and custom cabinetry behind with stained glass doors showing her name. The floors are white ash with Honduran mahogany strips and the overhead beams are laminated ash.
The galley is to starboard of the companionway and is "U" shaped. The three-burner propane stove with oven; microwave, double bowl sink, overhead dish storage and counter space afford the cook a great place to work. The mahogany raised panel cabinetry is gorgeous and the spice rack is simply a work of art!
The huge front opening freezer and refrigerator is to port of the companionway.
Walking past the refrigerator you enter the walk through to the aft cabin. This area is used as a work space, storage and an area for the washer and dryer. There is a large chart drawer and access to the engine room is here also.
The aft cabin/ private owners stateroom has again, beautiful cabinetry. The bed is athwartship. A vanity with sink and huge mirror are on the forward bulkhead and this area has an entire bank of hanging lockers and storage areas.
The private owners head has a separate stall shower, ceramic tile floors and again, the loveliest woodworking.
Serena Rose imparts a feeling of artistic traditionalism in her interior design and finish. She is truly one of a kind and should be seen.
Just look at the picture of this galley and imagine yourself here. It is beautiful and above all, safe.
The Sunward 48 is considered by many to be the perfect bluewater cruiser. Serena Rose is for the traditionalist who wants to learn her/his boat and enjoy the safety she gives in return.
She is comfortable and inviting, providing all systems necessary for comfortable dock side or open ocean use. You won't be roughing it. She offers air conditioning/heat, full galley with tons of storage, TV, washer/dryer, water maker and a generator to keep you comfortable at anchor or when passage making.
She has solar panels, wind turbine, inverter
