Sirena 88 flagship yacht approaches launch

Turkish yard Sirena Yachts has given a construction update on its flagship project, the Sirena 88, which is due to debut later this year at the Cannes Yachting Festival.

Construction is well underway on the 26.81 metre project, which will be the largest yacht ever built by the yard.

The hull, deck and superstructure have now been joined and work has begun to fit out the furniture of the main deck interior, as well as the lower deck and flybridge.

The raised pilothouse yacht, which sports exterior design by Frers Naval Architecture and interior design by Cor D Rover, is scheduled to launch in June.

The five stateroom layout sees the master located on the main deck with a sitting area to port and foldout balcony. The remaining lower deck guest accommodation will be insulated from the engine room by a full beam crew area. This area will accommodate a total of four staff in a private sitting room and two cabins.

Other features include a main deck social area, which includes a large formal dining table, and a transom tender garage, which can be transformed into a beach club.

A foredeck social area will include a "dipping pool" surrounded by sunpads while the flybridge will feature a bar, dining table, settee and spa pool.

Interior designer Rover previously told BOAT International that the décor was developed around a desire to bring the outdoors in. “Our interior design philosophy is based upon an inseparable link between the inside and the outside of the yacht,” he said.

“Nothing brings nature more into our designs than these large windows. Daylight brightens up the unique, luxurious and comfortable interiors and makes you feel as if you are on board a much larger yacht.”

However, Sirena Yachts product manager Tanil Surmeli said the layout can be altered according to client preferences.

"The layout if something that we can change to meet a client’s needs. We are able to play dramatically with the spaces within the structural confines of this hull.”

Power will come from a pair of 1,550hp MAN V12 engines for a top speed of 25 knots and a range in excess of 2,430 nautical miles when cruising at nine knots.
