Sirena Yachts Unveils New 78: World Debut to Come at Cannes
Turkey’s Sirena Yachts has a new 82’ (25 m) model, the 78. She’s a flying bridge motoryacht that the company says is characterized by high interior volume and long-range cruising capabilities. She’s a mid-level addition to the popular Sirena series.
An owner can tailor the layout to his family’s needs. For example, a second salon can be added. The flying bridge also comes in open, semi-enclosed or fully enclosed as a skylounge, expanding her appeal to a wider range of potential buyers.
Her exterior design comes from Frers Naval Architecture and Engineering, while Cor d. Rover created her contemporary interiors. Key features include a spacious main deck galley and a foredeck that has a sunpad, sofas and tables.
For the interior, German Frers chose to use loose furniture to allow for maximum flexibility of the yacht. A full-beam master stateroom has an en suite and dressing room, and there are accommodations for six in three cabins plus crew quarters.
Sirena says her size makes the 78 a good candidate for an owner looking to step into crew-operated yachts. She’s available with a range of propulsion choices starting with twin MAN V12s that push her to a top speed of 23.7 knots, according to the builder. At her most economical, she has a cruising range of 1,550 nautical miles and the standard cruising speed is 16 knots.
The Sirena 78 will make her debut at the Canne Yachting Festival in September.
