Hailing from Holland, Michigan, is Tiara Yachts, a division of S2 Yachts (yes, they made sailboats back in the day). The new 44’ Tiara Coupe joins her larger sistership, the 49’ Tiara Coupe, in Seattle as a mid-sized, purebred, modern luxury yacht for those wanting to take in the view of the Emerald City as it’s meant to be seen— by the water in the sexiest boat you can get.
The 44’ Tiara Coupe, at a glance, is one sleek ride with relatively narrow beam and elongated, arrow-like look accentuated with that swept back cabin and extra-long swim platform. The almost completely glass cabin and some windows in the hull play into the modern look, the portholes of the past downright cave-like by comparison.
Another 21st century touch is the massive padded sunlounge on the foredeck. Overall, the look is somewhat like a Maine-built Sabre, and certainly hypermodern like the Riviera line. The yacht is laid up with a solid fiberglass bottom and balsa coring on the deck and hullsides.
With the many seating options in the partially covered cockpit, aft-facing seating integrated into the transom, and gorgeous interior, this is a cocktail yacht through and through. An optional BBQ can be integrated into the transom, a good location in the middle of all that aft entertainment space.
The retractable sunroof, racecar-styling of the helm station, and twin Volvo IPS 600 inboard diesels give this planning hulled Tiara a sports-car-of-the-sea feeling. There’s also joystick steering when needed. The engine access is great, thanks to the garage-style entrance to the engine roof in the stern.
As far as accommodations go, one travels forward and down to find the large V-berth with island style bed (naturally) and the two berths of the second stateroom. The two heads are also down there. If a yacht has two staterooms, does it need two heads? On a luxury yacht like the 44’ Tiara Coupe, of course!
The salon is a no-expenses-spared work of art with the galley against the starboard and L-shaped seating around a table to the port. Large glass sliding doors seperate the interior from the cockpit.
The new 44’ Tiara Coupe looks like she’s feeling right at home here in Seattle. Perhaps she’ll find her perfect match here? For more information and pricing, you can reach out to local dealer Alexander Marine USA.
