The 26.81-metre flagship of Turkish shipyard Sirena Yachts has been launched. The Sirena 88 will debut later this year at the Cannes Yachting Festival and is the largest yacht ever built by the yard. The composite hull was fully vacuum infused using E-glass and vinylester resin to German Frers' naval architecture design. Fitting of the main-deck furniture, lower deck and flybridge is now being completed to the designs of interior designer Cor D. Rover.

The master suite features a seating area with a foldout balcony, desk, dressing table and walk-in double shower. Further below, a VIP suite and three double staterooms can be found all with en-suite bathrooms. Up to four crew are housed in a full-beam crew area in between the guest accommodation and the engine room.Photo: Jeff Brown / BreedmediaPhoto: Jeff Brown / Breedmedia“The layout is something that we can change to meet a client’s needs,” says Tanil Surmeli, product manager for Sirena Yachts. “We are able to play dramatically with the spaces within the structural confines of this hull. As a semi-custom builder, we are open to their ideas.” The current model features a main-deck seating area with a formal dining table with seating for ten. The flybridge provides guests with a bar, an additional dining area and whirlpool spa tub.

This bigger model means we now play in a new category and I'm sure we are now ready for this. Over 400 boats – 410 to date - that we have produced so far are now cruising all over the world keep receiving huge acclaim,” commented Ipek Kirac, CEO of Sirena Marine.Photo: Sirena MarinePowered by twin 1,550 hp MAN engines, the Sirena 88 is expected to have a range of 2,400 nautical miles when travelling at 9 knots.
