German Frèrs presented in Cannes its new creature:the
Euphoria 54
, born of a collaboration with the Turkish shipyard Sirena Marine. A 54-footer which we saw “born” in the shipyard, during our trip to Istanbul at the Sirena Marine shipyards and which we now have the pleasure of seeing ready to take to the water. This boat aims to offer a perfect balance between sailing perfomance, ease in maneuvering, elegance on the water and comfort on board. To have a “luxury” hull but capable of running fast on water. And with the hallmark of Frers’ pencil, present in all his boats: the flared stern about which we asked the Argentine designer to explain why and where it came from, as you can hear from the interview above.


A dominant feature of the deck plan is the deckhouse with its long, sharp windows the wedge shape of which has the upper surface connecting with the forward part of the deck continuously, creating a central area free of encumbrances and running undisturbed to the hatch. The cockpit, enclosed at the stern by a large opening bridge, is protected by high handguards that extend to the aft wheel. Immediately forward of the wheelhouse are shown two winches within easy reach of the helmsman. Spaces dedicated to relaxation are expanded to the maximum so that even long cruises can be sailed comfortably. The hull is constructed of vinylester resin using an injection process that ensures, at the same time, maximum strength and lightness. At the specific request of the owner, the shaft(made of aluminum in the standard version) can also be made of carbon fiber. A furling mainsail version is available for the rigging.
