Sirena Yachts continues to add to its line of semidisplacement, flybridge-equipped vessels with the 78, set to premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival which is slated for Sept. 6-11.

Like the Sirena models that came before her, the 78’s hull and exterior styling is courtesy of German Frers Naval Architecture and Engineering, with interior design by Cor D. Rover.

The interior of the 78-footer is where she differs most from her brethren, as the boat will not be equipped with a lower helm station. The builder says this opens up the space for entertainment, allowing them to add a massive galley, with multiple entertainment areas that take advantage of her 21-foot, 3-inch beam. A “loose furniture” concept gives owners the ability to change her look by moving ottomans and settees throughout the salon. An elegant, curved staircase provides interior access to her flybridge; there’s also access from the cockpit, where wide side decks lead to a well-equipped foredeck where a massive sunpad is flanked by tables and accompanied by a pair of L-shaped settees.


Her flybridge concept is also something different from the Turkish builder, available in either open, semi-enclosed or fully enclosed formats. Belowdecks, four en suite staterooms, including a full-beam, amidships master stateroom and crew quarters aft, complete her accommodations package.

Standard power is via twin, 1,400-hp MAN V12s matched to V-drive transmissions, granting the 78 a 16-knot cruise speed and 23-knot top end. At 10 knots, the builder estimates the 78 will return a 1,500 nautical-mile range. Both 1,550-hp and 1,800-hp MANs are available as optional power.
