The new 68 is built on a hull that marries efficiency and performance seamlessly. The hull shape encapsulates a cavernous volume of space, allowing everyone onboard to spread out and get comfortable, but still be together. The interior is a special kind of intersection where craftsmanship meets utility, elevating every aspect of the space to make it feel welcoming, comfortable, and human size.
Like all Sirena’s, the 68 incorporates the innovative German Frers hull design which delivers world-class range by allowing displacement speeds for extended cruising. Optional power is expected to push the top speed of this semi-displacement hull to 29 knots.
Forward of the galley is a large U-shaped settee where family and friends can congregate while sharing their time aboard with the helmsman too. Outside the saloon, the side decks have large cutaway sections of the bulwarks, improving the lines of site for those inside.
Belowdecks the amidships master stretches across the full beam, where a king-size berth welcomes the owner, and seems to float thanks to inventive lighting design. Large hullside windows admit natural light and provide views of the water’s surface. This stateroom is served by a his-and-hers head arrangement, affording a high level of luxury, similar to designs popularized by numerous megayachts.
