29 June 2021 • Written by Tom McGhie

Turkish builder Sirena Yachts has delivered the third and fourth hulls in its flagship 26.8m Sirena 88 series.

The third hull has been delivered to its Canadian owner, who will live on board for seven months of the year cruising the Bahamas and Caribbean. As a result, the yacht was customised to his “specific technical and lifestyle requests”.

“Everything from the engines, generators and the stabilisation systems to the veneers, finishes, soft furnishings and even the door hinges were selected according to the owner’s exacting requirements,” said Sirena’s director of North American sales Constantinos Constantinou.

Customisation examples include the fitting of stabilisation fins and a Seakeeper gyro, as well as an extra fuel tank to increase the cruising range to 4000 nautical miles at 10 knots. The fourth hull meanwhile was delivered to a Spanish owner.

The raised pilothouse design features exterior design and naval architecture by Frers Naval Architecture while the interiors are penned by Cor D Rover.

According to the builder, the interior “provides an exclusive feeling of relaxed enjoyment,” with materials including “luxurious fabrics and soft carpets in natural tones with accents of bright colours”.

A total of 10 guests are accommodated in five staterooms, including the owner’s suite, which features a private balcony and far-reaching ocean views. Elsewhere, the yacht features two dining areas, a large saloon and a sundeck with a bar and lounge.

The builder also revealed that a total of eight units of the superyacht model have been sold so far, with other hulls under negotiation.

Chief commercial officer Ali Onger said: “Like other boat builders, we saw some initial production delays due to Covid-19, mostly associated with the difficulties experienced by suppliers, but this has been more than compensated by the increase in enquiries since the start of the pandemic.”
