The new Sirena 78 is an all-in-one yacht that offers safe, comfortable and reliable cruising for extended voyages, but is also designed as a platform for relaxation and fun.
Firstly, there is a choice of three flybridge solutions: Open, Semi-Enclosed and Fully-Enclosed. Sirena has decided to offer these options to meet all the needs of customers sailing in places with different climates.
The Open model is obviously intended for cruising in sunny weather, but the sturdy hardtop still provides shade and shelter. The Fully-Enclosed version offers all-weather comfort and fun in colder climates or perhaps at the end of the season, while the Semi-Enclosed option has an open stern section for the best of both worlds.
The enclosed versions benefit from large windows (the side windows can be electronically activated for a refreshing sea breeze) to let in natural light and allow excellent views. All have direct access to the interior of the main deck via a floating spiral staircase that maximises space and utility.
The Sirena 78 echoes the layouts of the Sirena yacht range, which have allowed for ample volumes together with optimum visibility and flow of circulation, developed further on this model. This was made possible by eliminating the helm station on the main deck.
The galley is the centrepiece of the boat, which is proposed as a true home on the sea, available with an open-plan island or a wrap-around layout.
“As the galley becomes increasingly central on board, the open galley concept has become a focal point of the saloon,” explains interior designer Cor D Rover. “By taking the kitchen design 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.”
For the interior, owners can choose from three styles developed by Cor D Rover: Inspiration, Serenity, and Elegance. Inspiration is based on light, airy materials and color palettes that soothe the senses and invite the outdoors in. The light honey-colored wood and soft semi-gloss lacquer of Serenity create a warm and inviting atmosphere that makes one feel at home. The dark wood and anthracite look of Elegance, on the other hand, create a very masculine and energetic look without being heavy.
Below deck is a full-beam, mid-ship master cabin with en-suite bathroom and dressing area for the owner’s use. Although reminiscent of similar layouts on other Sirena models, with a king-size berth, large hull windows and plenty of stowage, the Sirena 78 reinvents the space with a two-seater dinette for a private experience at the highest level for a couple of owners. The forward VIP cabin has a double berth angled to make the most of the deck area, while a built-in chaise longue allows guests to watch the water pouring out of the four-metre-long hull windows when the yacht is under sail.
To port and starboard between the master and VIP are twin guest cabins, both with en-suite bathrooms.
