Sirena Yachts is progressing with work on its first superyacht, Sirena 42M, which has been in-build for six months and is on track for a 2026 delivery.

The first hull sections of this 42-metre steel superyacht have been welded and are standing ready for assembly at the superyacht facility at Altınova Yalova, near the Turkish city of Bursa.

When construction is complete, the yacht will have four ensuite guest cabins and a master suite. Although the master suite can be positioned according to the client’s wishes, Sirena says it is “at its most glorious” when positioned forward.

In this configuration, the cabin gives access to a private patio terrace sunken into the foredeck, with a jacuzzi, views and decorative plants. This secret oasis also has a sinuous winding staircase that echoes the curves of the interior.

“A plumb bow, high bulwarks and a gentle curve to the shearline will make Sirena 42M an instant head-turner,” says Cagin Genc, Chief Executive of Sirena Yachts.


The Sirena 42M was designed by Luca Vallebona (exterior and interior layouts) and Hot Lab (interior design), part of The Viken Group, while Van Oossanen was responsible for the naval architecture.

The yacht’s superstructure will be lightweight aluminium, and engineering design work is ongoing. The yard’s delivery time is increased by the standard construction, while interior styling and configuration are flexible depending on the owner’s preferences.

An extended living area option complements the aft salon with a flexible space that can be dedicated as a games room or studio. Forward again is the option to give another space for dining. A pool on the aft deck has drop-down bulwarks that can extend it, plus a beach club and open flybridge.

Over 30 people are working to build the boat at the moment, and Sirena is expecting to join the hull and superstructure as soon as September, with the final hot-metal work completed early in the new year.

“Due to the complexity of the build, we decided to employ an external surveyor to monitor progress and control quality – in addition to the Class Society,” says Genc.

“I’m delighted to report we’re exactly where we wanted to be at this stage of the build – precisely on schedule and working to a very high standard of finish.”

The Sirena 42M is being built on spec and is due for delivery in 2026. The project is currently for sale through Northrop and Johnson, asking €23.95 million (A$38.98 million).
