Derek Jarvis

Raised in the small mining towns of northern Ontario, Derek found his interest for all things ocean watching Mike Nelson on Sea Hunt, the 1950s television series. While backpacking in Europe in 1972, Derek was offered his first position as crew on a pre-war wooden cutter bound for Brazil. This is when the passion came to life. Derek learned navigation and seamanship during this voyage, and his talents have grown exponentially over the years.

By 1986, Derek had owned 2 of his own sailing vessels and spent 12 years cruising the Caribbean and Pacific Islands. Derek then captained sailing yachts up to 80 feet in size both privately owned and by charter and has delivered vessels to all corners of the globe.

He has logged over 175,000 nautical miles and completed 7 trans-Atlantic and 3 trans-Pacific crossings. In 2002 Derek began a new chapter as a yacht broker, working for a local brokerage in Fort Lauderdale. It wasn’t long before Derek’s knowledge and expertise brought him to the forefront as the “go-to guy” for sailing vessels within the firm. Honest, easygoing and knowledgeable are a few of the adjectives previous clients have used to describe Derek. He now hopes to help you achieve the dream he has lived.

Basic Info

Yacht Name: Serenity
Builder: Morgan
Model: 60
Year: 1983
Location: Hollywood, FL
Hull Material: Fiberglass

Serenity is a lovely four stateroom, four head solid fiberglass cruiser from designer Charley Morgan. She has an easy to use schooner rig with all lines leading to the back cockpit. All the sails are nearly the same size so the combinations available will handle all the sea conditions you can imagine.

For close quarter docking situations, Serenity has a powerful bow thruster that allows the crew to maneuver with confidence.

On deck, there are numerous areas for lounging aside from the large comfortable cockpit.

Below, the boat features a generous amount of space that would suit charterers or family alike. 

Serenity has tremendous tankage both in fuel and water plus solar and a wind generator. These alternative sources of power, along with the 16kw generator and Sea Recovery watermaker , make long stretches away from marinas possible.  

Serenity has just completed a total bottom job including sanding and painting, thru hulls, cutlass bearing, max prop and buffing out the topsides and is excellent condition.

There is also a very recent survey available that was done 6/1/18.

Serenity is the only Morgan 60 available worldwide and won't last long on today's market.
