A bespoke fit: Here’s how you can make the 25m Sirena 78 your own

11 August 2022

At the Cannes Yachting Festival, Turkish yacht builder Sirena will present its hotly-anticipated new 25 metre model, the Sirena 78. Penned by exterior design studio Frers Naval Architecture and interior designer Cor D. Rover, the new yacht is packed with distinct characteristics that set it apart from the competition.

One defining feature is the high-volume layout, which is styled in a cool and contemporary theme. However, the actual configuration of the Sirena 78 is all about flexibility and customisation. Ahead of her debut, we take a look at what kind of features an owner can adapt to make the Sirena 78 a perfect fit.

One or two saloons?

The yard conceived the Sirena 78 as the ultimate at-sea entertainer, so the yacht offers plenty of social hotspots across her decks. The owner can alter the layout to include either one or two saloons. Plus, the absence of a main-deck helm station has provided even more space for gathering and entertaining.

To help form a warm and inviting ambience, the choice of materials in the saloon includes light honey-coloured wood and soft semi-gloss lacquer. To add flair and complement the yacht’s exterior, Sirena Yachts has added bold dark woods and an anthracite lacquer to the pallete offset by fine white leathers and fabrics. The result is a modern version of an open loft that promotes a sense of unrestricted freedom, which is particularly welcome during long voyages.

Open or closed flybridge?

To appeal to a range of buyers cruising in different climates, the Sirena 78’s flybridge is available in an open, semi-enclosed or fully-enclosed format. Those opting for a semi or fully-closed design will also benefit from super-sized windows that let in light and block any unpleasant weather or sea spray. The open flybridge will give guests more exposure to the outdoor environment while still providing shade and shelter thanks to the robust hardtop.

10 or 20 items of furniture?

Sirena Yachts has given its owners many opportunities to customise their Sirena 78. With each unit set to be different from the last, the yard has devised a “revolutionary” loose furniture concept, where all items can be arranged however the owner sees fit. Furniture such as settees and ottomans can carry the yacht’s pale and light grey colour scheme to continue Sirena Yachts’ tranquil theme. This style of decor has been created to “soothe the senses and invite the environment in”, particularly on the main deck, where large windows and seamless doors keep guests connected to the outdoors.

Inside or outside?

Aside from the flybridge, a key outdoor area on board the Sirena 78 is the foredeck. Here guests can lounge on the huge sunpad or settees, or sit around the tables to port and starboard to enjoy the alfresco lifestyle. Further inside on the main deck is where the galley can be found. Doubling as another entertainment space, the galley features a large central island, long countertops, a deep sink and full-size appliances.

Down below on the lower deck, a full-beam master cabin with a private bath and dressing area amidships is dedicated to the owner. Complete with an en-suite bathroom, the VIP benefits from large windows that give guests a close-up view over the water.

Crew or no crew?

The boat’s size and amenities are created to appeal to owners looking to take their first steps into crew-operated yachts. However, for the more experienced owner-operators, the yacht can be handled by a single person from the helm station on the flybridge. The flybridge is a key element on nearly all Sirenas that offers plenty of space and undisrupted views, making it the ideal place for anyone to drive the Sirena 78 and fully appreciate her capability.

Standard or custom propulsion?

To help her owner discover new cruising grounds, the Sirena 78 comes with a range of approximately 1,550 nautical miles when travelling at 10 knots in the innovative “economy cruising mode”. This can be achieved with Sirena Yachts’ standard propulsion package that includes twin Man V12 1400 HP engines and a top speed of 23.1 knots. The other two engine options – the 1550 HP and the 1800 HP – can reach 24.2 and 25.7 knots respectively.
