Turkish yard Sirena Yachts is set to start construction on its first 42-metre superyacht and future flagship. Unveiled at the 2022 Monaco Yacht Show, Sirena 42 is part of a new range that also encompasses 35 and 50-metre models.
Accommodation is across four lower-deck guest cabins, with two VIP cabins featuring transverse beds. While the layout is customisable, the suggested arrangement features an owner's cabin at the bow – a solution designed to provide direct access to the private forward patio. "Often, reference is made to large windows as a method to enhance the relationship between the interior and exterior," explained designer Luca Vallebona. "In the case of Sirena Superyachts, I wanted to take this concept a step further, ensuring not only expansive views of the landscape but also the possibility of physically stepping outside of the usually enclosed interior."
Interiors are Nordic-meets-Mediterranean, incorporating curves, large fillets, and plenty of plants for a relaxed, organic feel. Chosen materials range from natural beech and oak to cotton and chenille for the sofas. This results in a light and desaturated colour range which, according to Hot Lab, emphasises natural light. “The effect we wanted to achieve is certainly that of a studied environment rich in detail, but at the same time one that did not become mannerist at all costs,” said partner and head of design at Hot Lab, Enrico Lumini. “The lines are essential, almost obvious, yet in their continuous chromatic and material contrast they find strength and richness.”
Exterior renderings reveal an al fresco dining area on the sundeck and casual sofa seating on the main deck – both providing uninhibited views off the stern. Towards the back of the vessel, the aft deck houses a large pool with fixed sunpads, sun loungers and complementary fold-out bulwarks. The design also caters to the younger generation's greater affinity for water sports with generous onboard storage for tenders and toys.
“It has been a desire of the Sirena management team to work with Luca Vallebona and Hot Lab for a long time, and we are excited by the results of our collaboration," said Sirena CEO Cagin Genc. “The interiors are simply stunning, with stylishly realised options that allow for highly personalised finishing coupled to design flexibility in layout that ties in perfectly with Sirena’s forward-thinking approach to general arrangements without impacting on engineering elements. HotLab captured the essence of Sirena’s unique superyachts and their innovative and inviting layouts, and we are confident our enthusiasm will be shared by our clients.”
According to BOATPro, Sirena Yachts currently has two units under construction, both belonging to its Sirena 88 series.Read More/CEO Series: Çağın Genç on expanding the range at Sirena Yachts
