Sirena just introduced its first 58 designed for the U.S. market at the recent Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, a German Frers-designed semi-displacement cruiser built for performance and easy living. The interior, by Tommaso Spadolini, is filled with natural light from large windows; the main deck is on one level to make moving around easy.

Explaining the appeal of the Turkish-built yacht, Constantinos Constantinou, the head of Sirena’s North American operations, said, “We’ve seen that the  priorities of U.S. yacht owners have changed in recent years. Build quality is considered a given, but yacht owners are now putting much more emphasis on onboard livability, safety and comfort. The Sirena 58 responds to all those needs with its hull design, accommodation solutions and technical specifications that are unique for a fast trawler-style vessel in her class.”

The Sirena is built with carbon fiber in the superstructure and hardtop to keep weight down and lower the center of gravity, providing a stable ride. The teak side decks are wide and protected by high bulwarks. Side boarding gates are standard.

Powered by a pair of standard 650-hp CAT diesels, the Sirena 58 has a cruising speed of 20 knots, and a top speed of 25 knots. At 10 knots, range is 850 nm. With optional 850-hp CATs, the top speed climbs to 28 knots.

The boat draws only 4’1” and the props are protected by pockets, making it a good candidate for cruising in shallow-water areas of the Bahamas, south Florida, the ICW and the Chesapeake. Extra fuel filters have been added, also with cruising to the islands (with more remote fuel docks and diesel quality) in mind. An inverter has been added for the U.S. market, so that cruisers won’t have to run the genset all the time if they’re anchored out; a water maker is an option.

The Sirena 58 comes with two accommodation plans; a two-stateroom version, with two large almost equal cabins, one in the bow and one amidships, and a three-cabin version, which probably will be more popular in the U.S. In this version, a large, full-beam master is midships, with lots of walking-around room, a second large VIP stateroom is in the bow, and the third cabin, with twin berths, lies between the two on the port side. All cabins have en suite heads and showers.
