Sirena Yachts is a yachting success story, with 100 deliveries from its 58 to its 88 in just five years. Some customers want to be at the center of the customization conversation with a bigger boat but not necessarily the biggest. It’s therefore added the Sirena Superyachts division, offering a handful of megayacht models to suit
Specifically, Sirena Superyachts includes the Sirena 35 Meter (115 feet), 42 Meter (138 feet), and 50 Meter (164 feet). Each features a steel hull and aluminum superstructure, with styling by Luca Vallebona. Vallebona says the shipyard asked for sportiness and openness. He personally wanted to add architecturally striking elements, too. The three concepts come together especially at the bow, where a patio-like alfresco area (below) is aboard each model. “This small, almost architectural feature hidden inside the hull on the main deck is a private, open-air space dedicated to the owners,” says Vallebona. “It is very special.” Additionally, he says he drew inspiration from J Class sailing yachts’ sheerlines in creating the main-deck windows.
Naturally, while a hot tub can sit forward, a larger pool sits aft for guests. It’s just above the swim platform, in an alfresco area that becomes more expansive when the side bulwarks fold down. Altogether, it becomes 915 square feet (85 square meters) aboard the 35 Meter. Even more significantly, it becomes 1,507 square feet (140 square meters) aboard the 50 Meter.
Naval architecture, meanwhile, is by Van Oossanen Naval Architects. It is employing its Fast Displacement Hull Form as well as the Hull Vane foil for additional efficiency. Although full particulars on engine packages and anticipated speeds aren’t yet publicized, Sirena says hybrid propulsion is available.
Sirena is in discussion with a few clients about commissioning the first hulls. It already planned to start construction on spec, making for a more attractive delivery time. Additionally attractive, each project within the Sirena Superyachts division comes with sunning areas and abundant space for watertoys.
Notably, the builder wants owners to come to the table with their own designers, to ensure true personalization. Further noteworthy, the shipyard has suggestions that certainly meet with how today’s cruisers live. “The average age of our owners has decreased by 10 years, and is now in the 40 to 50 age bracket, meaning that they are looking for different features in their yachts,” says Sirena Yachts’ CEO, Çağın Genç..”We have removed the formal dining area, as these owners want to be more sociable in the exterior areas and enjoy more informal meals with their friends. To ensure that the owner still maintains their privacy when they want it, we have created an owner’s private terrace where they can spend time alone and relax without being with other guests.”
