Serenity Yachts, electric and solar-powered vacation vessels, has seen a rise in interest from both national and European markets.
“I could easily say that the calls and emails have doubled,” says executive director Boyd Taylor.
A brand new, fully outfitted Serenity 64 model with all the latest bells and whistles in navigation and entertainment technology costs around $3.3 million.
Over at Eclipse Yacht Furnishing, CEO Joy Hutchinson says that business has been good, though she declines to give any figures.
“Yacht owners are definitely spending more time on board, in their own private world,” she says in an email. “We’ve worked on more than 40 boats this summer. We foresee an even busier fall when people who are now in the Mediterranean come back here on their way to the Caribbean.”
