Fusion Entertainment Ltd. said it signed a partnership deal with Tiara Yachts.

New Tiara yachts will be offered with the Fusion MS-UD750 stereo with internal UNI-Dock, MS-AV750 or the BB300 black-box entertainment system, depending on the boat model, Fusion said.

New Zealand-based Fusion said the MS-UD750 is built with Fusion-Link via NMEA 2000 control, Bluetooth audio streaming and Multi-Zone technology.

“Tiara has been manufacturing beautiful motorboats for over 40 years and they are now clearly one of the most prestigious American-built brands,” Fusion Entertainment managing director Chris Baird said in a statement.

“We are very proud to be supplying Fusion products for each and every vessel built by Tiara and we look forward to a long and successful business partnership. Customers are demanding the same high quality from the accessories that are installed on their boat that they expect from the boat itself. Fusion will continue to be the entertainment company that these customers deserve.”
