Nearly everything is getting a sustainable makeover, even luxury yachts, apparently. Grand Cayman-based Serenity Yachts just showed off two of their new designs for solar-powered yachts at the Miami International Boat show.

The Serenity 64 and Serenity 74 will go for $US3.3 million and $US5.5 million, respectively. So far, two of the 64 have been produced, while the 74 is still in production. The yachts are designed to maximise efficiency while maintaining a smooth ride, according to Serenity.
