Construction of the Sirena Yachts 88 Hull No.1 is well underway. The build also is the largest build of this yacht marque to date.  Her World Debut is scheduled at Cannes Yachting Festival 2019.



Sirena 88 is a true expedition-go-anywhere 26.8-meters yacht in comfort and safety on a dynamically stabilized offshore design. According to the hull characteristics and design, it is an evolution of her smaller sister Sirena 64, a low resistance that performs efficiently with a minimum of fuel consumption at high and at all speed ranges.



For the date the composite hull was fully vacuum infused, using E-glass and vinyl ester resin. The all-carbon-fiber-construction deck and superstructure also were vacuum-infused, and the hull, deck, and superstructure have been joined. Construction has also begun to fit out the furniture of the main-deck interior as well as areas on the lower deck and the flying bridge.


“We have some additional layout ideas that we are going introduce,” says Tanil Surmeli, product manager for Sirena Yachts “The Sirena 88 will make her debut at Cannes, but some additional layouts will also be shown there.”

Her advanced naval architecture by German Frers and the interior design is by well-known Cor D. Rover.



Exterior deck areas are well suited for entertaining. The aft deck extends the main saloon with a large al fresco dining area while the bridge deck with extra seating complements the sky lounge. The sun deck includes a bar, forward seating area and Jacuzzi aft. 



The foredeck social area will be protected from wind and ensure privacy with high bulwarks, while a dipping pool will be flanked by sun pad lounge areas to either side. Down port and starboard, stairs will be the swim platform, served by a striking beach club built into the transom. The flying bridge will be a social space all its own with a bar serves another formal dining table while aft groupings of settees will surround large cocktail tables.



Accommodations space is very generous and includes the full-width Owner cabin with its own balcony to the sea, plus four en-suite, one of them a very large VIP guest suite. Two formal dinner areas, one “al fresco” on the upper deck and a second on the specially designated area on the main deck saloon are planned. 



Sirena 88 features a five decks layout accommodating up to twelve persons with elegant and stylish decor. A full-beam crew area insulates the guest accommodations from the engine space and provides up to four crews with a private sitting room and two cabins. 



The Sirena 88 will perform at both planning and displacement speeds comfortably and economically. She will be powered by 2/1,550-hp MAN diesel at cruising speed 16 knots and top speed 25 knots. With economy mode, she expected to have a range of 2,430 nautical miles at 9 knots.



Yacht Harbour will watch for future updates for Sirena 88 build progresses over the coming months, as the testing launch is expected in June.

Why people used to flip 40-60 m yachts and then stopped
After a growth period of 20-30 meters and megayachts, which is even closer to the recession, there was a short period for high demand for medium-sized superyachts.The market for 40-60 meter yachts, the last of which began to grow before the recession began, has also recently begun to gain momentum, as owners are looking for yachts in order to switch to them with growing disposable incomes. Indeed, if several years earlier it was expected that yachts in this range would be traded at 30-40% at the asking price, this gap narrowed to 25-30% in recent quarters.Shipyards, primarily known for their 20-30-meter yachts, are also expanding their ranges to 40-60 meters in order to keep customers who want to grow in size. For example, Sanlorenzo, which for decades focused on 20-30-meter yachts, put at the beginning of this year its newest flagship - the 64-meter Attila.Atilla is a 64.25m luxury yacht, built by Sanlorenzo and delivered in 2019. Her top speed is 18.0kn and her power comes from two 2375.0hp Caterpillar 3516-C diesel engines. She can accommodate up to 12 people with 18 crew members.Yacht was designed by Officina Italiana Design, and the interior design was created by Francesco Paszkowski.

Interior equipment is currently on schedule for a technical launch next month.Attitude offers a number of modifications to the original GA model, including the individual design of the front deck, which has a large solarium and a height-adjustable table to maximize the use of outdoor space.The cabin was also enlarged to accommodate a horseshoe-shaped sofa that can accommodate 10 guests. Another tanning bed is located on the transom, and modified protective gates lead down to the swimming platform.The tender bay garage under the aft sun deck has also been expanded to accommodate a 3.95 meter long Williams sports tender, capable of carrying six passengers.Attitude will feature four cabins with a common main cabin, the best VIP room, a guest cabin with two single beds and a fourth cabin for the owner's chef.Two 2600 hp engines MTUs combined with Arneson drives allow Attitude to reach a maximum speed of 47 knots and a cruising speed of 40 knots.
Magnum 60 Furia by Hammer: the final stages of reconstruction
The Magnum 60 Furia was launched in 2001, designed by Magnum Marine and Ceo Catherine Theodoli. They say that this is the most successful of the Magnum models.Back in 2001, the 120-kilometer 60 Furia Magnum was named the fastest yacht of this size in the world and after extensive repairs at the Perini Navi Hammer shipyard reached higher speeds.Changes include new air intakes in the engine compartment along with a customizable display on the control panel.The new Magnum 60 concept is attractive to the original design, but much more pleasing to the eye, with distinctive details throughout the American style of the 50s. The owner’s room has individual storage solutions on either side of the room to ensure clean space.Marnix Hoekstra from Vripak says that they kept the overall layout and tuning of the boat, but improved it where it was possible, for example, expanding the companion from the saloon in the middle to the double and twin cabins. They also added daylight, and in the interior they used the same tree that was used in the construction of the boat, painting it in matt white.
