Tiara Yachts and Cummins MerCruiser Diesel announced the installation of CMD Zeus propulsion technology in Tiara's 4300 Open model. The first Tiara Yacht 4300 Open powered by the Zeus 600-hp propulsion system will debut next week at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

The 4300 Open is equipped with joystick-controlled twin Zeus 3000 series pods coupled to QSC8.3?liter 600?hp engines.

“The Zeus system is a great match for the 4300 Open. We believe this combination will be a game?changer for Tiara customers who demand the best,” CMD director of sales Richard Newman said.

“We are excited to work with Cummins MerCruiser Diesel in offering this kind of revolutionary technology to our customers on what we feel is one of the most exciting boating platforms to come along in some time,” said David Slikkers, chief executive of S2 Yachts, the parent company of Tiara Yachts.
