Mondomarine will showcase its latest superyacht design, the SF40, at the Monaco Yacht Show 2015. This yacht is a semi-displacement collaboration from Mondomarine Engineering and designer, Luca Vallebona of SF Yachts. Upon launching, she will be christened Serenity, and she is then due to be delivered to her owner at the end of 2015.

With an overall length of 42.3m, a beam of 8.8m, this all-aluminium vessel is capable of 16 knots but the main emphasis is on a 'new conception of internal and external volumes and layout.'

She will feature four guest cabins on the lower deck and an owner's cabin on the main deck, although the design team claims the dimensions and layout are 'unusual'.

Special attention to the position and privacy of the owner's cabin has inspired its 'unusual' layout on two split-levels, each with its own specific connotation: the upper part fully immersed in the surroundings, with a panoramic open view to the fore, while the lower area is more intimate and private.

Mondomarine issued the following statement to the media about what to expect:

'Each part of the yacht has been conceived both individually and in relation to the others so to provide a flow of aesthetical continuity and functionality where the eye is not hit by any "predominant" element but it is instead attracted by a harmoniously calibrated combination of elegant elements.

'The distinctively clean exterior and interior lines produce a timeless sense of luxury immune from the influence of fashion and very focused on the enjoyment of the ambient and on the rediscovery of the essence of travel, adventure and discretion without any ostentation.'
