The new Sirena 58 is built for liveaboard comfort with lots of space inside and out. It also is built for long-range cruising. Indeed, German Frers, the famed naval architect who designed it, says it’s a mini explorer yacht made for cruising “all corners of the world.”
The new cruiser, built by Sirena Yachts in Turkey, has a Frers-designed hull that’s smooth and efficient at displacement and planing speeds. With two standard 650-hp Cat diesels, the Sirena 58 tops out at 26.5 knots; with optional 850-hp Cats, it reaches 30 knots. Dial back to 10 knots, and the Sirena 58 has a range of 850 nm, with a 10 percent reserve.
The boat comes in a two- or three-cabin arrangement, with the interior designed by Tommaso Spadolini, head of the Spadolini Design Studio in Florence. In the two-cabin mode, one innovative feature is a stairway from the master stateroom that gives owners immediate, and private, access to the foredeck. “We built reinforcements into the structure behind the bed and covered them with oak paneling,” Spadolini said. “Basically, the owner can walk straight from this cabin take seven steps and emerge onto the foredeck without having to pass through the main salon, as is usually the case.” The foredeck, which also can be accessed via the side decks, has a large sunpad for lounging.
The salon is filled with light from picture windows all around and is designed in a contemporary European style. The helm is to port and a door opens to the sidedeck to starboard. There’s an L-shaped sofa on each side, with a table to starboard.
The flybridge is large and the boat deck aft extends over the cockpit for all-weather protection. The teak swim platform is super-sized to serve as a base for water sports.
