Michigan-based Tiara Yachts debuted the Tiara 49 Coupe late last year and now the build is available in the Pacific Northwest. A sporty motoryacht with an eye towards comfortable cruising, the Tiara 49 Coupe aims to be a crossover boat that can do it all.
The look of the 49 is very much in-line with its predecessors; modern and sleek with a prominent recessed and padded sunlounge on the foredeck, convertible-style sunroof built into the cabintop, and a cockpit-sized swim step combo at the stern. The cockpit is partially covered with a hardtop and has an abundance of integrated padded seating and a dining table. There’s built-in transom storage too.
A notable feature of the cockpit layout is the large, all-glass sliding door that separates the cockpit from the cabin interior. If left open, the two spaces blend seamlessly into a common entertainment space. One walks forward through the galley and up two steps to the salon and helm. Further forward and down are the two luxury staterooms and two heads. The sleek black windows integrated into the hull let in plenty of natural light.
The helm is in the middle of the action, something a social skipper will appreciate. The Tiara 49 is powered by a Volvo D8 IPS800 inboard diesel engine that dishes out an impressive 26-knot cruising speed and 31-knot maximum speed.
Overall, the Tiara 49 Coupe appears to provide a solid cruising platform, luxury entertainment pad, and zippy sport yacht. If interested in learning more and pricing, you can contact the local dealer Alexander Marine USA.
