Sirena Marine Sets Sailing Yacht Premieres at 2016 Cannes Yachting Festival
Founded by the Kiraç family in Turkey a decade ago, Sirena Marine will celebrate that anniversary at the Cannes Yachting Festival, Sept. 6-11, 2016 with the world premiere of the Azuree 41 and Euphoria 68 sailing yachts. Tucking the successful completion of 350 vessels into its portfolio, both sail and power, along with the creation of two international brands cruising the waters from Europe, the US, Hong Kong, Australia, and China, the Turkish shipyard has established itself as a leader in the world of yachting.
Attributing their success to uncompromising quality, superior design, relentless passion, and strategic vision, the Azuree and Euphoria lines illustrate the boat builder’s ability to live up to their word. The Azuree 41, designed by Giovanni Ceccarelli for a combination of sport and comfort, is a carbon fiber reinforced, vacuum-infused GRP performance cruiser that shows speed in light air and powerful stability under heavier winds. Interiors by Tommaso Spadolini make effective use of space, embellishing three cabins and social spaces with an elegant simplicity that complements the engineering. The 12.5m craft uses 100 sq. meters of sail, and has a standard draft of 2.4m, with an option to shave it to 2.0m. Forty boats of this model have already sold.
The Euphoria 68, a collaboration by Argentine designer German Frers and the English Design Unlimited studio, is aimed at a sophisticated, demanding owner. A library of customizable options, enhanced hull, clean deck, and spacious guest areas make her comfortable and enjoyable. Twin rudder configuration, evenly distributed displacement along the waterline, and rig and draft options make her a strong contender and ideal blue water world cruiser. A sail area of 265 square meters, large wrap-around windows, flush decks, hidden fittings, sumptuous natural woods, and natural color palette contribute to a clean, contemporary feel.
Poised to launch the third phase of Sirena Marine is the ready- to-ride powerboat line top-secret project. Under wraps are the names of two world famous designers already busy with production of vessels scheduled to debut at next year’s Dusseldorf and Miami boat shows. Sirena Marine’s Bursa Orhangazi yard currently employs 550 workers, and claims €30 million in total annual sales.
