The first foray into megayacht territory by Sirena Yachts is on pace for a June launch. Hull number one of the Sirena 88, with all carbon fiber composite construction, is the Turkish shipyard’s largest yacht so far.
The Sirena 88 has naval architecture by the renowned German Frers. Besides using carbon fiber and resin infusion to keep weight down, the design emphasizes good performance. A pair of 1,550-hp MAN engines should allow a cruising speed of 16 knots. They should further allow a 2,430-nautical-mile range when the raised-pilothouse megayacht slows down to 9 knots. Since the Sirena 88 has a shallow draft of 5’9” (11.804 meters), she can reach plenty of places.
Measuring 87’10” (26.81 meters), with a 23’3” (7.1-meter) beam, the Sirena 88 is currently seeing furnishings go into place. The yacht is part of a semi-custom series, with Cor D. Rover Design creating a sophisticated ambiance for hull number one. Rich wood covers walls and floors in common areas and the staterooms, accommodating ten. (Alternate arrangements are, of course, available for future deliveries.)
One of the most striking features of the design, though, comes in the master suite. Forward on the main deck, it has both a fold-down balcony as well as windows that curve up overhead in the en suite bath. Those windows therefore become much like skylights.
American buyers will be pleased to see a main-deck galley in proximity to the formal dining area. Buyers of all nationalities will also like the beach club. Further attractive, the Sirena 88 offers a cozy pool, surrounded by sunpads, on her foredeck. High bulwarks keep it relatively private, too.
Sirena Yachts intends to show off the new megayacht at September’s Cannes Yachting Festival.
