It’s been just over 12 months since Sirena Marine launched its superyachts division, and the Turkish yard confirms that construction of the first 42-metre model is now underway.

The yard is no stranger to building complexity and the highest levels of quality – their foundational range, spanning yachts from 16 to 27 metres, picked up several awards and has steadily increased its market share. The move into superyachts is a natural progression for the brand, and Sirena Superyachts proposes to develop an innovative range of models at 35 metres, 42 metres and 50 metres.

The first Sirena 42m features an exterior design by Luca Vallebona, and an interior design by the Italy-based Hot Lab studio.

The layout of the 42-metre model can be tailor-made to the needs of any owner, with options that include an owner’s suite located on the main or upper deck, which in turn allows for a dedicated dining area in the saloon or something less formal, and to create a guest area in the bow dedicated to fine dining or pure relaxation.

“The layout we propose has the owner’s cabin in the bow, designed to provide direct access to the forward patio – an open and private space that characterizes the Sirena 42m,” explains Luca Vallebona, who was also responsible for the internal layout and space planning. “Often, reference is made to large windows as a method to enhance the relationship between the interior and exterior. In the case of this 42m for Sirena Superyachts, I wanted to take this concept a step further, ensuring not only expansive views of the landscape but also the possibility of physically stepping beyond the usually enclosed interior.”

The forward ‘patio’ itself boasts elements such as a pergola, pool, and an organically shaped staircase that leads to the upper deck. The interior of the main deck is characterized by an aft salon, which connects almost seamlessly to the aft pool. 

“The four uest cabins are located on the lower deck, with two VIP cabins featuring transverse beds and the partition that separates them from the guest cabins serves as a wardrobe,” continues Luca Vallebona. “Thanks to this solution and the en-suite bathrooms that separate them from the technical areas aft (garage and engine room), sound insulation in these spaces is well taken care of.”

“The shipyard asked us to create a fresh, elegant and at the same time innovative interior design,” says Antonio Romano, Commercial Director and Partner of The Viken Group and co-founder of Hot Lab. “We developed various stylistic solutions that could satisfy owners with different needs while allowing the shipyard to standardize production as much as possible,” explains Romano.

The team took the same multi-configurational approach when it came to deciding the interior design, blending a clever mix of linear and curved geometries, and drawing on a palette of natural and warm materials combined with richly textured fabrics for a sophisticated design language.

“The effect we wanted to achieve is that of a studied environment rich in detail, but at the same time one that did not become mannerist,” offers Enrico Lumini, Partner and Head of Design at Hot Lab. “The lines are essential, almost obvious, yet in their continuous chromatic and material contrast they find strength and richness.”

The style combines Nordic design, essential and rigorous, with a more Mediterranean ambiance, soft and relaxed. “Details are updated from cabin to cabin, but they reflect coherence,” adds Lumini. “Although they are never identical, the lounges recall each other just as the cabins recall the public spaces, and the decoration of the private bathrooms recalls some elements of the living areas.”

Inside and out, the concept of the yacht is to be a waterborne dream home that is adaptable to multiple needs. Rich but not opulent, technically proficient, and easy on the eyes. It is, as the Hot Lab team suggest, an excellent celebration of the technical capabilities of a constantly growing shipyard and of full maturity expressed by the design studio.

“It has been a desire of the Sirena management team to work with Luca Vallebona and Hot Lab for a long time, and we are excited by the results of our collaboration,” enthuses Cagin Genc, CEO of Sirena. “The interiors are simply stunning…Hot Lab captured the essence of Sirena’s unique superyachts and their innovative and inviting layouts, and we are confident our enthusiasm will be shared by our clients.”
