New Sirena 78 unveiled ahead of Cannes debut

30 June 2022• Written by Katia Damborsky

Turkish yachtbuilder Sirena has pulled the wraps off its new 25 metre model, the Sirena 78.

Characterised by a high-volume interior and long-range cruising capacities packed into a slender 87 tonne displacement envelope, the new model is a mid-level addition to the award-winning Sirena series.

The yacht will be available in a number of different colour palette themes

The new Sirena model offers great scope for customisation, with owners able to tailor their layout and add a second saloon should they so choose. The flybridge also comes in an open, semi-enclosed or fully-enclosed format that will appeal to a range of buyers cruising in different climates.

The saloon is flooded with light from large windows

The model’s exterior design comes from Frers Naval Architecture and Engineering, while Cor d. Rover has created the yacht’s cool and contemporary interiors. Key features of the Sirena 78 include a huge main deck galley and a foredeck lounge area that is complete with a sunpad, sofas and tables.

The master suite has its own dressing room

German Frers, who is at the helm of Frers Naval Architecture and Engineering, is best-known for sailing yacht design, and this experience has been harnessed into the design of the Sirena 78. Loose furniture allows the owner to modify the look and feel of the yacht daily, while a full-beam master suite with an en suite and dressing room proves that smart use of space has been ingrained into the design of the superyacht.

The galley will be a focal point on the new model

Accommodation is across four cabins, with an additional cabin for crew. The boat’s size and amenities mean it would make a good transition for an owner looking to take the first steps into crew-operated yachts.

Buyers can opt for an enclosed, semi-enclosed or open flybridge

There are a number of different propulsion packages on offer, with top speeds of 23.7 knots offered by the standard twin Man V12 engines. This offers a range of approximately 1,550 nautical miles at ten knots in the innovative “economy cruising mode”. Meanwhile, standard cruising speed stands at 16 knots.

The new model will make its debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September.
