The Sirena 56 is among a growing number of yachts designed to maximize liveaboard space. The 56 may look like a flybridge motoryacht, but she could be more accurately described as a long-distance cruiser, or even a mini explorer. The exterior, by German Frers, famous for sailing yachts, mates a boxy topside with a fast-displacement hull that reaches 26 knots with optional twin 850 hp Cat C12.9 diesels that also deliver a range of 850 nautical miles at 10 knots.
Tommaso Spadolini used “light” and “comfort” as keywords when creating the interior. The Italian designer used picture windows in the salon and lower-deck staterooms, along with 6-foot-4-inch headroom, to maximize the sense of spaciousness.
