Istanbul-based shipyard Sirena Yachts has a full order book for 2024, continuing the trend of growth that the builder has enjoyed since its foundation in 2017.
Sirena Yachts completed more than 40 successful yacht deliveries in 2023, which spanned its entire size range. These included the delivery of two units of its smaller, entry-level yacht, the Sirena 48 – which made its debut at the 2023 Cannes Yachting Festival – to Türkiye.
Moving up in size, 14 units of the Sirena 58 yacht were delivered in 2023, with eight finding their homes in the US, three in Italy and three in Türkiye. Türkiye and the US represent strong markets for Sirena Yachts.
The model with the largest number of deliveries in 2023, however, is the mid-range Sirena 68. A total of 16 units of this model were delivered in the 12 months just passed, including the first-ever delivery to both the archipelago of New Caledonia to a private client, and one to the Maldives, which will be used for the purposes of tourism.
In addition, five units of the Sirena 68 were delivered to the US, seven to Türkiye, one to Spain and one to France. This high-performance model boasts a maximum speed of up to 28 knots (when powered by 1000 hp engines) alongside a range of 1,200 nautical miles at an economical cruising speed of 10 knots.
Turning to the largest models currently on offer, Sirena Yachts delivered four units of both its Sirena 78 and flagship Sirena 88 in 2023. These found homes in Türkiye and the US, in the case of the Sirena 78; and in the US, UAE and Türkiye for the largest model in its product range, the Sirena 88.
Sirena says the flexibility of its models goes some way in explaining their widespread popularity.
As one example, owners of the Sirena 78 are able to opt for an open, semi-enclosed or fully-enclosed flybridge design, depending on their preferences and needs. All designs benefit from large windows.
The shipyard continues to invest in technology as evidenced by its deployment of new dual-mode hull technology that ensures smooth navigation and excellent seakeeping, alongside the sound insulation and advanced carbon technology which can be found on all of its latest models.
Looking ahead, Sirena Yachts’ total production capacity for 2024 has been increased by 20 percent, with a full order book. The company anticipates more growth going forward.
“As we reflect on the year just gone, we could not be happier with our results, and it is all thanks to the hard work, expertise, skill and dedication of our team, as well as the fantastic owners we work to serve,” says Sirena Yachts CEO Çağın Genç. “Looking to the future, we look forward to beginning construction of the first Sirena superyacht in 2024.
“This is our three-model range of steel and alloy superyachts which will be completed by 2026 – we can’t wait to showcase these to the industry to highlight what we are capable of.”
