The vessels will feature steel hulls and aluminium superstructures with designs that show a “natural progression from the shipyard’s existing models”. To create the range, Sirena forged a new partnership with exterior designer Luca Vallebona and Van Oossanen Naval Architects. Each unit will feature a customisable interior to suit each individual owner.
“Our objective is to carry the spacious interior, attention to detail, efficient and sea-worthy hull and customer orientation approach to our new line of superyachts,” says Sirena Yachts CEO Çağın Genç.
All of Sirena’s new superyachts have been designed with high-volume, fold-out wing decks, multi-level gathering spaces, plunge pools and sunpads. As privacy was a key element of the brief, the 50 metre, the owner’s suite extends out onto a private “patio” area.
“The Sirena’s superyachts will be sporty, elegant and offer large open spaces”, said Luca Vallebona. “I would like to underline two references to the past that I used for the concepts. The first one is the use of words like patio and pergola that come straight from the classic Latin age, as I am fascinated with this architecture. The other one is the bottom line of the main deck side window that can be seen as nothing else than a sheerline of a beautiful J Class, a timeless symbol of luxury and sportiness.”
As well as branching into the superyacht sector, Sirena’s ambition is to cater to a younger generation of clients. “The average age of our owners has decreased by 10 years, and is now in the 40-50 age bracket,” adds Genç. As a result, the designs feature “less formal more social” spaces and no dedicated dining area.
Sirena states it has serious clients interested, particularly in the 50-metre model, and are well positioned to build on spec. “Our goal has been to provide yachts that exceed expectations in every size category in which we build,” says Sirena Yachts’ chairwoman and president İpek Kıraç.
