Superyacht Lite

Yachts with a foredeck jacuzzi, two levels of lounge areas, ocean-crossing range and a tender garage tend to be huge and require a crew to operate. The Sirena 88 is all this, but it’s one you can run yourself.

The new flagship from Sirena is the ideal choice for those who long for superyacht amenities in an owner-operated package. At 26.7 meters, it is sized for home or condominium docks. The German Frers designed vacuum-infused e-glass and vinylester resin hull with a sleek flybridge presents a striking profile whether underway or alongside the dock. The interior is even more spectacular. The foredeck sun pad and whirlpool area and upper and main deck covered alfresco lounge/dining areas are complimented by a formal dining space, large salon with ample natural light and a gourmet-quality galley. A 5-stateroom layout includes an owner’s suite, VIP suite and three double suites. The huge owner’s suite features full-sized windows to port and starboard, private access to the foredeck, a foldout balcony and a walk-in double shower. Crew quarters for up to four are located adjacent to the engine room. In standard trim, the Sirena 88 has a cruising range of 2,100 nautical miles at 9 knots. An optional 5,500 liter fuel tank increases the range to an ocean-crossing 3,100 nm. Twin 1,550-hp MAN V12 engines provide a top speed of 25 knots;
