The largest build from Sirena Yachts is on track for world debut at Cannes Yachting Festival (Sep 10-15)

Construction of the Sirena 88 Hull No. 1 is well underway and on track for her world debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2019 (Sep 10-15). The build marks the latest design from Sirena Yachts to become reality, and is also the largest build for the marque to date.

The hull features naval architecture by German Frers and the interior design is by Cor D. Rover.

The composite hull was fully vacuum infused, using E-glass and vinylester resin. The all carbon fibre construction deck and super structure were also vacuum-infused, and the hull, deck and superstructure have been joined. Construction has also begun to fit out the furniture of the main-deck interior as well as areas on the lower deck and the flying bridge.

The Sirena 88 will have prodigious volume in a raised pilothouse design, and will feature a five-stateroom layout with a main-deck master with panoramic views. The master suite will have a sitting area to port along with a foldout balcony. To starboard will be a combination desk and dressing table. Forward, the head features distinctive windows that curve into the overhead to serve as skylights along with a walk-in double shower and private toilet compartment.

The comfortable layout belowdecks features an amidships VIP suite and forward luxury guest cabin with private head will have a pair of en suite double guest staterooms between. A full- beam crew area insulates the guest accommodations from the engine space, and provides up to four crew with a private sitting room and two cabins.

“The layout is something that we can change to meet a client’s needs,” says Tanil Surmeli, product manager for Sirena Yachts. “We are able to play dramatically with the spaces within the structural confines of this hull. As a semi-custom builder we are open to their ideas.”

The yacht’s raised pilothouse provides excellent sightlines for navigation while taking the business of operating the yacht out of the main-deck areas to allow for a relaxing guest experience.

The main-deck social area will have a large formal dining table with seating for ten, served by a nearby galley. Aft a seating with facing U-shaped and straight settees will be a gathering spot for guests, and opens through wide doors on the sheltered aft deck, where another dining area stretches across the transom. Down port and starboard stairs will be the swim platform, served by a striking beachclub built into the transom.

The flying bridge will be a social space all its own, where the upper helm is located forward to starboard. A bar will serve yet another formal dining table while aft groupings of settees will surround large cocktail tables. A whirlpool spa tub will be nearby to help guest relax even more.

The foredeck social area will be protected from wind and ensure privacy with high bulwarks, while a dipping pool will be flanked by sun pad lounge areas to either side.

Her advanced naval architecture by German Frers is enhanced by high-tech resin infusion construction and generous use of carbon fibre to reduce weight and optimise the vertical and longitudinal centers of gravity. The Sirena 88 will perform at both planing and displacement speeds comfortably and economically. She’s expected to have a range of 2,430 nautical miles at 9 knots.

Watch for future updates as her build progresses over the coming months, with an expected launch for testing in June.

“We have some additional layout ideas that we are going introduce,” Surmeli says. “The Sirena 88 will make her debut at Cannes, but some additional layouts will also be shown there.”
