Overview/History

Serenity was manufactured in 1982, and is one of the earlier 4 berth production boats of the "2nd Generation Design" M17s produced by Jerry Mongomery.
Serenity spent the first 30 years of her life in Arizona, sailing mostly in fresh water lakes, with a few trips to the Sea of Cortez.

In 2013 Serenity was purchased by Keith Martin a former Sea Scout Leader and coastal wilderness enthusiast from Vancouver BC. Since relocating to
Vancouver, Serenity can be seen plying the BC coastal waters of Howe Sound, Georgia Straight, the Canadian Gulf Islands, and points all along the
Inside Passage, or just day sailing up the Indian Arm.

Serenity was in great shape upon arriving in Vancouver benefiting from a long history of being well maintained. The tradition continues with many upgrade
projects reflecting her new role in the single handed exploration of the BC coast. Projects include;

Centre board & keel maintenance ::-:: Barrier coat & anti-fouling
Refurbished teak ::-:: Bow roller mounted Rocna anchor c/w 240 ft of rode
