SIRONA was designed by Bull Tripp and built in 1999 by Marten Yachts of composite construction for stable world cruising combined with safety & performance to easily reach sailing speeds up to 20 knots. SIRONA underwent an extensive refit in 2015 at New England Boatworks . She has an overall length of 72' and a beam of 16.7'. A custom designed lifting keep allows SIRONA to cruise waters or glide in an anchorage close to shore. Designed with a low center of gravity keep as opposed to increased ballast SIRONA is highly stable and lightweight allowing for smaller sails, higher hull speed and lower loads resulting in more time to enjoy the sailing. The Tripp design includes a raised pilot saloon which allows for comfortable sailing in any weather from the interior steering & lounging areas and excellent panoramic visibility. The pilot house shelters the cockpit which is surrounded by dual coamings. A twin headsail system provides the right sail at all wind speeds and allows SIRONA to reach her sailing potential without the need to change sails. A fully battened mainsail sits in a "gull wing" boom and enables ease of handling. Stepping down from the pilot salon to the lower salon, there is a bar to to starboard is a dining area to port with the galley forward of the bar. Two cabins and a guest head are forward and the master with private head is aft. Engine room sits amidships below the cockpit & pilothouse and a hydraulic transom door opens for storage.
