Sirena Yachts’ smallest model to date recently made its US debut at the Palm Beach International Boat Show. The Sirena 48 completes the existing product line for Sirena, comprising the Sirena 58, 58 Coupe, 68, 78 and 88 models. 

According to a press release from Sirena Yachts, the Sirena 48 is targeted at the next generation of boating enthusiasts to enter the on-the-water lifestyle, and is already proving to be popular in the market. The shipyard has sold more than 27 hulls to date, including 13 units in the US.

“Similar to the Sirena 58, the new Sirena 48 has the qualities to become another bestseller for Sirena in the USA and the Americas as a whole,” said Constantinos Constantinou, head of operations for Sirena in North America.

The new yacht features a semi-displacement hull, which is efficient in displacement mode, but also permits fast planing performance. It boasts a striking, modern trawler design and naval architecture from the drawing boards of naval architect Germán Frers.

Performance-wise, the Sirena 48 is capable of reaching top speeds of 27 knots and is ideal for brisk trips at speed, as well as for longer, efficient bluewater cruising. The yacht’s cruising speed is 17 to 20 knots, with an economical cruising speed of 10 knots. 

The Sirena 48 has three spacious staterooms, as well as one additional, optional crew cabin. The owners’ stateroom is significantly larger and is comparable with those on a 60-plus-foot yacht.

The yacht has numerous layout options as well as two alternative layout options for the spacious cockpit. Customers can choose between an open layout and a more traditional aft deck, with the customization continuing to the stern area. A generous stowage area can be chosen to replace the crew cabin, with a full-height door or seating area, which opens out of the transom.

Additionally, Sirena Yachts has recently unveiled a new hybrid variant of the Sirena 48 capable of silent power on demand without exhaust emissions. Driven by twin 213kW/285hp electric motors, the Sirena 48 hybrid tops out at a speed of 14 knots. In silent electric mode, it can draw power directly from the large battery bank to cover up to 30 nautical miles before switching on the variable-speed generators.

“As an all-weather yacht offering an unprecedented level of choice and flexibility for a boat in her size range, we anticipate that she will be very well received across both the Mediterranean and US markets,” said Sirena Yachts COO Ali Onger. “The fact that we’ve already sold more than 27 of these units to date speaks for itself!”
