Sirena Yachts has revealed details about how sophisticated space management and radical design thinking will characterise its new range of 35-50m superyachts. The boats were unveiled at the Monaco Yacht Show 2022, where the Turkish shipyard promised to maximise the on-board experience for owners and guests. Now it has shone a spotlight on features like the unique private owner’s patio, mullion-less windows and the vast, flexible beach club area.
These yachts are bursting with fresh ideas and unashamedly tailored for the next generation of yacht owners. But Sirena Yachts has also built on the run-away success of its smaller Sirena models, whose bold lines and smart use of space are widely recognised. Connoisseurs will spot the towering bows and long, elegant line of the bulwarks; dark glazing contrasting with the flawless white hull.
“The new range had to be sporty and elegant with some reference to the Sirena Yachts production designs. It had to be a timeless design,” said CCO Ali Onger. “Like our smaller yachts, the superyacht range is pitched at owners who love to spend time on the water with friends and their family.”
Fresh, informal styling is echoed by the use of space, which favours open entertaining areas, large external relaxing zones and the unique owner’s suite at the front of the superstructure. “The pearl of these yachts, particularly the 42m and 50m, is the forward patio,” said Luca Vallebona, the designer responsible for developing these yachts with the Sirena Yachts team. “This small, almost architectural feature hidden inside the hull on the main deck is a private, open-air space dedicated to the owners. It is very special.”
Dappled in sunlight, ringed with soothing plants, this private oasis receives natural light from above and from the side. Freestanding seating makes this a fine spot for a morning coffee, or for receiving guests in perfect privacy – even as you’re moored in the heart of the harbour. On the two larger boats, there is a Jacuzzi here, as well as steps up to the main deck, where the owner again benefits from a dedicated forward lounge area, with deep, comfy sofas, away from prying eyes.
Naturally enough there’s a larger pool aft for guest use. It stands slightly above the deep bathing platform, the focus of a space that grows dramatically when the two bulwarks are folded down, creating twin balconies just above the sea. The effect is dramatic on the 50m; but on the 35m it is nothing short of transformative. The yard likens this area to a private beach resort, and the figures speak for themselves. Altogether, the aft deck on 35m amounts to 85 square metres; on the 50m yacht, it is a vast 140 square metres.
But the flagship also has another jewel in its crown. “The main and upper deck cockpits are visually connected by a double-height space close to the saloon entrances,” explained Vallebona. “This space could be hung with plants or a giant sculpture, creating a common thread – a sinuous passage from the main deck to the upper deck cockpit. Verticality is a dimension that is not so often seen on a yacht, especially in a 50m.”
Clients are able to customise their yachts to an incredible degree, while still benefiting from the faster build times and lower costs of a ready-developed technical platform. It would be easy to find room for a gym – outside on the sundeck, for instance, or close to the pool. But the scale of these yachts means that there is plenty of room inside as well.
Recognising that younger owners are more enthusiastic about water sports, Sirena has designed in very generous storage space for a large tender and toys. On the flagship, there is garaging for two tenders, two jetskis and a range of boards, but even the 35m can fit a large crew/guest tender and the all-important jetskis on the foredeck.
“We have been overwhelmed by the wave of positive response to our new superyacht designs,” said Onger. “With this latest step, we have cemented our product line-up in every segment of the boating market. We have been prudent, so it has taken Sirena Yachts 17 years to build up to this point, but we are proud to say that our reputation speaks loudly for itself.”
The new Sirena superyacht line will feature exteriors by Luca Vallebona and naval architecture by Van Oossanen Naval Architects, with the interior designs of each vessel fully customisable to meet the requirements and desires of each individual owner within the selection of Sirena Superyachts renowned interior designers or with a freedom to bring any studio to create their bespoke dream superyacht.
