As you might know, The New York Times has recently named the owner of 134-meter Serene to be Saudi Arabia's deputy crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman. Serene's previous owner's involvement in the project is however not over yet.M/Y SereneRussian billionaire, Yuri Shefler, whose net worth is estimated at $2.1 billion by Forbes, had commissioned Serene from Italy-based Fincantieri back in 2006 according to Italian media. The yacht was eventually delivered in August 2011 as the 9th largest yacht in the world and became the first superyacht ever built by the Italian group that was primarily known for its commercial ships.In 2014, Fincantieri launched its second megayacht, the 140-meter Ocean Victory which was commissioned by another Russian oligarch, Viktor Rashnikov, whose net worth is estimated at $4.8 billion. Prior to its launch in December 2014 however, Fincantieri was ordered to pay €20.9 million to Serena Equity Limited (the company controlled by Shefler that owned Serene) by London courts.M/Y Ocean VictoryShefler's main claim was that Fincantieri had used Serene, on which the billionaire says he holds intellectual property, to develop Ocean Victory which he says is a near sistership. In fact, both superyachts boast an exterior design by Espen Oeino and seem to have similar technical characteristics. As such, English courts have granted Shefler €13,2 million for the violation of his intellectual property and €7.7 million for late deliveries, which were to be paid by Fincantieri where the Italian government holds a 70% controlling stake.Fincantieri however filed a motion in Trieste's Court of Appeals in 2015 to dismiss the fact that London's ruling applied. A procedure is also currently ongoing at the specialized courts in Venice to determine whether Shefler holds a right to the intellectual property over Serene. Since May 2016 another legal proceeding over this case is also being held in The Netherlands between Serena Equity Limited and Fincantieri Holdings BV.

We have already shared with you the pictures of Feadship superyacht Aquarius leaving Rotterdam for her North Sea trials. And now Dutch Yachting has posted the photos of the newly launched superyacht getting ready to set sail for the first time. The yacht left the Merwehaven in Schiedam this morning and just returned after her first sea trials on the North Sea. 92-meter Aquarius (Project Touchdown) was launched by Feadship for Steve Wynn one month ago. The vessel was initially built at Scheepswerft Slob and then was relocated to the Dutch shipyard's finishing facilities in June 2015. The superyacht features a resolutely contemporary exterior design with a number of archetypal Feadship elements, such as a conventional bow and raked superstructure shape. The profile comes from the boards of the Dutch company Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design, which was also responsible for the interior design together with the owner's design team in close cooperation with Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects.Aquarius can sleep up to 14 guests in 7 suites including 6 VIP-suites forward on the main deck and an owner's suite on the upper deck. Her alluring amenities include a helipad on the bow, a beauty salon, a large pool on the aft main deck, a gym, massage and therapy room, jacuzzi and large outdoor deck spaces. Feadship and Sinot Yacht Design has recently introduced 80m superyacht Zen as the result of a close cooperation of two longtime partners in the yachting world. The Dutch shipyard has also presented 74m Future concept Choice during the Monaco Yacht Show.Photos by Jan Oosterboer via Dutch Yachting

The 44.20-metre Moon Sand was launched in April 2015. The project showcases a collaboration between her experienced owners, Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects and the interior designers from Bannenberg & Rowell Design.Dickie Bannenberg said:For Moon Sand we created a crisp and contemporary design, with many different types of wood and various bright and colourful influences brought in by the ownersAll the works about the yacht were beautifully executed, boasting inspired layout, striking patterns and sumptuous materials. The main deck lobby boasts a tinted bespoke light feature designed by Bannenberg & Rowell, the colour of which can be chosen according to the owner's mood. The flooring in this area consists of arresting petrified wood marble and limestone.Mr Bannenberg added:Highly focused on details, the owners managed everything down to the heights of the hooks for robes and towels in the bathrooms. This reflects both their considerable past experience in boats and self-assured tasteMoon Sand represents a salient reminder of the formidable design expertise Feadship has in-house. From the bridge deck wing stations to the main deck lifting pool, all the main elements synthesize design with owner desires, marrying practicality with a passion for perfection that was shared by all involved. Amongst one the most alluring features onboard is her contraflow swimming pool, situated on the aft deck, allowing the owners to engage in exercise. As we have seen, Moon Sand is the result of a collective desire from the owners, designers and shipyard to deliver a truly exceptional yacht and "as one of the most specified ever in her class" that is exactly what they have achieved. Even the smallest details are important to Moon Sand's owners and working with Feadship made everything achievable James Hutchinson, who represented the owners throughout the project and was involved in every aspectFeadship and Sinot Yacht Design has recently introduced 80m superyacht Zen as the result of a close cooperation of two longtime partners in the yachting world.
