Sirena 58 designed to maximize liveaboard space and performance

Measuring 18,58 metres in length overall, arguably the highlight of the Sirena 58 is her general arrangement and design by Italian designer Tommaso Spadolini.
Careful space planning means the interior volumes are very generous and the joinery, built out of high quality woods and fabrics, offers several options according to individual taste. In particular, the vertical bow provided Sirena 58 with much more living space, both inside the full-beam master stateroom and outside on the foredeck.
The Italian designer used also picture windows in the salon and lower-deck staterooms, along with 6-foot-4-inch headroom, to maximize the sense of spaciousness.
DIRECT ACCESS TO FOREDECK FROM OWNER’S CABIN
This led to a feature that in the two-cabin layout is unique for this size of yacht: a private staircase leading directly from the master stateroom through an opening in the deck to the foredeck lounging area, much like an owner’s private terrace on a much larger yacht.
“This is a lovely practical feature that adds to the onboard experience for the owner, but took some thoughtful design to achieve,” says Tommaso Spadolini. “We built reinforcements into the structure behind the bed and covered them with oak panelling. Basically, the owner can walk straight from his cabin, take seven steps, and emerge onto the foredeck without having to pass through the main salon as is usually the case.”
From the outside, the ‘hidden’ panel where the stairs emerges looks just like a stowage locker so the design stays balanced and its position also leaves the side companionways free for anyone else who wants to use the foredeck lounging area.
Owners walk up seven steps to the panel, which lifts right into the foredeck lounge.
The Sirena 58 is also available in a three-cabin layout (one with two aft cabins side by side, the other with a twin cabin between the master stateroom and aft cabin), but the two-cabin configuration offers owners an additional advantage: the biggest bathroom of the three arrangements.
Featuring a spacious flybridge that offers an incredible view of the sea from the large sun bathing area, the convertible hardtop means guests can enjoy the flybridge even under the midday sun.
The cockpit is sheltered by the flybridge structure, providing an ideal place to relax with a cocktail or over a light lunch. Two stairways provide easy access to the wide stern platform, a true private beach.
Forward is a spacious area with an ample sunbathing zone dedicated to pure relaxation, which is completely sheltered even when underway.
NAVAL ARCHITECTURE BY GERMAN FRERS KIND OF PERFORMANCE LIKE A MINI EXPLORER YACHT
Thanks to her advanced naval architecture by German Frers and high-tech resin infusion construction that provides the optimal fibre to resin ratio, the rugged yet elegant Sirena 58 is designed to perform at both planing and displacement speeds comfortably and economically.
In fact, with a range of 850 nautical miles at 10 knots she is 20% more efficient than many other yachts her class. This kind of performance is more like a mini explorer yacht and has led German Frers to describe her as a yacht for cruising “all corners of the world.”
