You don’t have to be an expert on Greco-Roman mythology to know that the Sirens were three beautiful creatures who lured sailors with their beauty. The new Sirena 58 Coupé may well be a fourth sister. Consider yourself warned.
Based on the highly successful Sirena 58 flybridge from this Turkish builder, the 58 Coupé is a breath of fresh air in a crowded size range. Starting with a slippery hull from renowned naval architect Germán Frers, designer Tommaso Spadolini drew several layouts. The one I fell in love with is the optional three-stateroom master-forward.
Rather than wedging a triangular berth into the forward cabin, Sirena has created a bi-level master suite with a forward-facing berth, utilizing the narrow bow for a delightful table with seats (Backgammon anyone? Aperitifs?).
But the real breakthrough is the second stairway (the main entry is from the salon) to the foredeck, where owners can wallow in the sheer decadence of a forward-facing couch with a table, plus two forward-facing chaises that become a sunpad. This creates a private deck area that you would usually find on a megayacht.
The master suite has an en suite head with shower, and clever design allows room for two more cabins. Aft to starboard is a VIP cabin with a double berth and en suite head with a stall shower, while a twin cabin sits to port with another head.
The standard layout contains three cabins, with a full-beam master amidships, a VIP forward and a twin guest cabin to port. But the bi-level master-forward design should be the easy bestseller.
Another area where Spadolini and Sirena have mined gold is the salon, which offers sweeping vistas through large windows and a dedicated living/dining space amidships. Here you’ll find a pop-up TV and a relaxing lounge.
Forward, the helm is (surprisingly) to port. Skippers need to acclimate to left-handed throttle operation, but the glare-free dash holds a pair of 10-inch Garmin monitors, tidy rocker switches and the joystick for the standard bow thruster. Vision is terrific, except for an inexplicably wide center mullion splitting the windshield, and the double-wide helm seat is bolstered for standing comfortably behind the wheel.
Just aft of the salon seating, and using the full-cabin width is the galley. It has a useful inside table, especially when used in tandem with the spacious aft deck’s table for alfresco meals. The aft deck has the expected grill, but the unexpected is an electric awning to shade the entire area.
The galley puts the sink and four-burner cooktop/oven to starboard in an L-shaped counter, with a full-height fridge to port sharing space with the eye-level electrical panel. Of note aft are the four-panel cockpit sliders that disappear on each side to open the Coupé from transom to helm.
A pair of 650-hp Cat C-8 diesels power the Sirena, driving through ZF v-drives. Optional C-12 (840-hp) Cats are available as well. With the standard power, the 58 Coupé tops out around 27 knots, with a conventional cruise at about 15 knots. But drop back to 10 knots with Frers’ “fast-displacement hull” and expect to get 850 nm out of the 950-gallon tank, which also powers the Onan 21.5-kW genset.
Thoroughly delightful, albeit with a couple of quirks, the Sirena 58 Coupé is a Siren whose call you need to answer. —Louisa Beckett
