FLIBS 2013: Tiara Yachts unveils 50 Coupe

FORT LAUDERDALE — The Tiara Yachts 50 Coupe made its first public appearance Thursday at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. It’s the first in a new generation of Tiara sport yachts from 31 to 58 feet.

“We have been able to preserve a lot of the great DNA that my family has historically provided for the foundation of this boat company,” Tiara CEO Tom Slikkers said at the press introduction. “And that foundation includes a great ride, aesthetics, a beautiful boat that’s functional and a lot of elements that are uniquely innovative.”

The Tiara 50 Coupe departs from the more traditional Tiara profile. The Holland, Mich., builder used contemporary interior elements, such as modular settees and angular door handles, but has maintained some brand design characteristics, such as the Tiara sheer and deck wings.

The 35-knot yacht is powered with the new Volvo Penta IPS950s and D11 diesels. It’s the first North American production yacht with Volvo Penta's Glass Cockpit, an integrated electronics system that collects all navigation, engine and mechanical information and delivers it to touch-screen displays.
