Sirena Yachts just announced that it’s building a new 78 cruiser with the Turkish builder’s elegant, modern-European lines and a lot of options for a new owner. The 78 will debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September.
The new 78 is designed to be run by an owner-operator or by a crew. It’s in the middle of the Sirena lineup that already has a 58, 66, and 88.
And it has Sirena’s plumb bow, a long, low hardtop over the flybridge and an aft deck that’s protected by the overhang from the boat deck above. It also has the company’s signature look of full-length, wraparound windows on the main deck that let in massive amounts of natural light while providing excellent visibility all around.
The new Sirena is notable for the choices it offers, since it recognizes that potential owners come from different climates in various parts of the world. The flybridge, for example, can be open, semi-enclosed, or fully enclosed. The last two options come with super-sized windows.
The salon gives an owner even more choices, starting with what Sirena calls a loose-furniture concept, where settees and ottomans can be arranged in different spots, depending on the mood of the day or of the cruise. The salon does not have a helm station; the only one is up top on the flybridge. But that space now becomes part of the open salon, available for entertaining and lounging.
The galley is on the main deck. It’s large enough to keep everyone happy on a long cruise, with an island for food prep. It also has a deep sink, extra stowage spaces and full-size appliances.
Full-width glass doors aft lead to the cockpit, another social area, with the usual settee and table. The swim platform all the way aft can be lowered to an underwater level.
Wide, teak side decks lead to the foredeck, with a massive sun pad, tables and an L-shaped settee.
Below, the master stateroom is full-beam amidships with a private dressing room and luxurious en suite head. The VIP stateroom is forward and benefits from large side windows.
