History

Sirena Voile

1994: The creation

Pierre-Yves ROBIN, 22 years old, passionate about sailing, creates the company in 1994 in La Turballe (44). Firstly specialized in the purchase, the renovation and the sales of used dinghies, the company rapidly expands on a national and European level and thus becomes a reference in its area. Four years later, Sirena Voile is the European number 1 in the amount of sales.

1999: The beginning of Loday-Sirena’s collaboration

The creation of the Mercator schooner marks the beginning of the sustainable collaboration between Sirena and former Olympic champion and the renowned architect, Yves Loday. Designer of this collective dinghy it becomes a franc success, Yves Loday continues to accompany the society in the world of shipbuilding. This is the same year that the company leaves its premises of origin for Le Pouliguen.

2000: The Nacra is imported by Sirena

In 2000, Sirena continues its development and chooses to import the NACRA catamarans. It becomes therefore, the importer of the high-performance California brand.

2003: The birth of the SL

Yves Loday and Sirena continue their collaboration and revise the KL15.5 to create the SL15.5. This new catamaran signs the birth of the now famous range SL. The creation of the SL16 follows very quickly the same year. The SL15.5 and the SL 16, now known for their great performance, are quickly selected as official boats by the national and international federations. The FFV (French Sailing Federation) chooses the SL15.5 for the Cadet French Championships while the SL16 is retained for the Junior Championships. The ISAF makes the same choice for the international circuit: the best competitors compete on the SL16 at the World Junior Championships.

2004: Sirena changes hands

Pierre-Yves ROBIN decides to leave the company and sells the company to new shareholders. The latter will continue the distribution of SL catamarans throughout the world until 2009. The company then suffers a bad passage which leads to a bankruptcy filing this same year.

2009: Back to the roots

Pierre-Yves ROBIN returns to the company’s helm which he previously created 15 years ago. Two associates join him in this new adventure: Yves LODAY, thus sealing his interest for Sirena and Jean-Christophe Amedee-Manesme, a young passionate sailor himself, former export manager under the former management. The abandonment of the Nacra card, the choice of catamarans Topaz and LodayWhite or yet the launch of a new SL, the SL5.2, are all elements that mark this new turning point.
