“The Sirena 68 brings together all the qualities that experienced owners would seek in a new yacht – essentially an upgrade in comfort and confidence in all areas,” says Sirena’s Chief Commercial Officer Ali Onger.
“The vibe of the Sirena 68 starts with the details. When each person steps aboard, their eyes come to rest on a facet or a fabric, an accent or an angle, some hint that lets them know they’re welcome in a way that is somehow simultaneously familiar and new.”
Like all Sirenas, the 68 is built on a hull that seamlessly marries efficiency and performance thanks to the innovative semi-displacement hull lines by German Frers that delivers comfortable cruising and world-class range at displacement speeds.
“This new model in the Sirena Marine line of yachts is an evolution of the well-proven SY 64 and benefits from improvements in different areas,” says the Argentinean designer.
“A new general arrangement provides for a larger main deck area, including full-height saloon windows, in combination with a transparent bulwark opening.”
The saloon welcomes those entering from the aft deck, where a dining area and open-concept galley awaits them. Immediately noticeable is the play of light in this bright and dynamic space from the large windows that draw the eye to the ever-changing views.
Forward of the galley is a large U-shaped sofa where family and friends can congregate while sharing their time with an owner-operator who does not feel excluded from the company on board.
The master stateroom is amidships on the lower deck to take advantage of the full beam of almost 6 metres. Large hull windows admit plenty of natural light, and a his-and-hers head arrangement serves the stateroom. The guest accommodation is completed with a twin single guest cabin and a VIP cabin in the bow, with ensuite bathrooms.
On deck, the forward area has been arranged for sunbathing and a relaxed life at sea. An enclosed version of the ample bridge deck is available for colder climates with direct access to the main saloon below. Not forgetting the generous flydeck set up for relaxing and dining under the protective shade of the hardtop.
The interior design by Cor D Rover is available in three colour and material combinations.
The first unit is based on light honey-coloured wood and soft semi-gloss lacquer, which together with the large windows for panoramic views, provide a serene and elegant ambience. The bold dark wood and anthracite lacquer create a very masculine and energetic look. The finest white leathers and fabrics result in an interior that feels stylish, fresh and contemporary.
“As cooking becomes more and more central on board, the open galley concept has become a focal point in the saloon,” says the Dutch designer.
“By taking the design of the galley to the next level and integrating it into the overall design concept, it stands out in terms of functionality and becomes a relaxed gathering place for family and guests.”
The general style of the new Sirena 68 is elegant and purposeful, the engineering platform is well tested, and hull form is sea kindly.
Since the new model was announced, the unprecedented sale of 20 units proves that Sirena’s customised approach to production boatbuilding continues to be a hit with owners in the market for mid-size motor cruisers.
“We are a production boat shipyard and never stop building, rather like a car assembly line,” says Onger.
“But we also customise every yacht as much as possible to suit individual client requests. Once a boat is signed for and decided on the interior layout and decor, it takes around ten months to finish.
“Of the multiple yachts we complete each year, no two are the same.”
