Sirena Marine celebrates ten years of success with the ambition of challenging itself with wider horizons. Thus the group has announced the birth of the Sirena Yachts brand, together with the projects of two ambitious motor yachts which seem to want to conquer a specific segment of a no easy market.
The largest model of the range, a 64-foot boat, debuts these days in Düsseldorf and seems to maintain all the expectations generated in the design phase. The Turkish manufacturer has decided to combine two features not always compatible: a considerable top speed and a low consumption at both low and semi-displacing speeds, in addition to welcoming, if not luxurious, interiors enjoying a perfect interaction with the external environment, as in the case of some villas where structures merge with the surrounding horizons and landscapes.
With these ambitions, Sirena Yachts turned to “Frers Naval Architecture & Engineering” for the naval architecture, engineering and exterior design and to Tommaso Spadolini for the interior design.
At first glance, the Sirena 64 leaves no doubt. The bottom is powerful, with a thin and almost vertical right ahead which immediately leaves room for more generous and well-arranged volumes on the stern. This way, the boat can stand rough sea even at high speed. Taking a closer look, we also understand that the bottom arises from some specific choices made by the Frers engineers in the naval pool of Southampton.
With the motorization actually proposed, a couple of Cat C12.9 850 Hp engines, the maximum speed is 27 knots ( but the producer promises the study of even more performing motorizations): however, as soon as the boat is not at full throttle and speed drops to 10 knots, the Sirena 64 acts like a stable semi-displacing trawler with a consumption of just 48 l/h and a range of 1,000 nautical miles . Moreover, a system of gyroscopic stabilizers allows to stay at anchor comfortably.
External lines, with square or rectangular windows, clean angles and a vertical deckhouse window, seem to follow the recent trend which has pushed many shipbuilders to like almost military lines. Indeed, the development of the topside compared to the waterline is considerable but the windows sloping down to the stern and the presence of an impressive fly bridge soften this first impression.
If the deck offers a large sofa on the stern, huge sun pads on the bow and an intriguing swimming platform which can be partially submerged, the very heart of exteriors is the flybridge. It’s a gathering space, a privileged helm station and a huge terrace with a wonderful view. Moreover, it is overlooked by a modular superstructure thanks to a shade which can be closed on the stern in order to make the sun flood this level.
Interiors, designed by Tommaso Spadolini, accomplish the ambition of the yard of providing a continuity with both exteriors and sea while designing a real “home”. Windows entirely envelop the 52-square-metre deck which, in its turn, includes a surprising galley enclosed by some glass walls which put it in contact with the other spaces while isolating it in its function at the same time.
Opposite this elegant lunch area and before the large sliding glass walls, there is a saloon with opposed sofas. Natural coloured fabrics and clear shades combine with dark-wood elements creating a very elegant atmosphere.
Several spotlights illuminate any corner of this level. The same high-quality finishes feature in the sleeping quarters, accessible from a semicircular stairway located next to the inner wheelhouse. The master cabin is huge: 24 square metres!
The smaller “sister” of the Sirena 64, a 56-foot model, will be presented at the Miami Boat Show next February. With this range of boats, the yard declares its ambition of producing models up to 100 feet.
