Sirena, the Turkish builder of luxury yachts, just displayed its new flagship 88 long-range cruiser at the Düsseldorf show. Designed by Germán Frers, the Sirena 88 has a top speed of 25 knots and a cruising speed of 16 knots. Dialed back to 9 knots, it has a range of 2,100 nm; additional fuel tanks boost the range to 3,100 nm.
A raised pilothouse design, the Sirena features the full-beam master stateroom on the main deck, and it has panoramic views. There’s a sitting area to port, and a fold-out balcony. And it has direct access to a private “dipping pool” and sunbathing area on the foredeck. You can look directly from the owner’s bed to the pool. High bulwarks guarantee privacy there.
“The exterior lines talk of a practical, rugged seagoing expedition yacht,” Frers says, “with generous interior light and sea views from the interior, ample deck spaces and corridors. These features have been included on all Sirena models, while maintaining an original family resemblance.”
The interior features luxurious fabrics, soft carpets in natural tones and bright-colored accents with some stainless steel detailing. Off-white, hand-stitched leather and grey oak provide a contemporary look. Sirena make the custom furniture in house.
The main deck includes a large formal dining seating ten, with the galley nearby. The salon has facing U-shaped and straight settees. Another dining area is set across the sheltered aft deck. A beach club is built into the transom.
Owners can customize the layouts, but the basic design has the master on the main deck and the other four cabins below. The VIP suite is full-beam amidships; another VIP cabin is forward with skylights on each side. Two en suite guest cabins, with twin beds each, are set between the two VIP areas.
The flybridge provides another social space. The upper helm is to starboard and there’s a bar and a formal dining table. Groups of settees surround large cocktail tables. And there’s whirlpool spa tub for relaxing.
