The Tiara 39 Coupe is 40-foot coupe-style motor yacht launched by the Michigan-based shipyard Tiara Yachts in 2016. A super-sporty look with a flared bow, wrap-around glazing, a sunroof and striking modern living spaces has been paired with powerful pod-drive engines to create one of the finest entry-level yachts on the market today.
Though guests can sunbathe to their heart’s content out on the foredeck, where there is room for an optional double-width sunpad, it is to the stern where this yacht really comes alive. A fixed, full-beam swimming platform lined in waterproofed teak comes with a stern-facing transom sofa, a hidden aft-grill and a watersports or fishing locker to turn this space into a mini-beach club. Steps and a transom gate lead up to a vast cockpit with another transom sofa and a pair of armchairs, with enough room here for an al-fresco dining table.
Transparent sliding glass doors lead into a breezy main-deck salon with dynamic side glazing and a retractable, above-helm manual sunroof. You will find teak floors and satin-finished wenge surfaces in here, paired with an Ultraleather sofa, a coffee table and cabinetry to port and an open galley to starboard. Galley appliances can be cleverly hidden when not in use, and the kitchen features Corian counter-tops, a Sharp microwave, an under-counter Vitrifrigo fridge-freezer, a two-zone Kenyon hob, a stainless-steel sink and plenty of storage. Up front there is a starboard helm with a twin Stidd Helm seat and a Volvo Glass Cockpit dashboard featuring two multi-function Garmin display screens, Volvo Plus joystick handling, throttle controls, Lenco trim tabs, VHF radio and a Ritchie SuperSport compass.
No mere day-boat, the 39 Coupe features enough room on the lower-deck for up to five overnight guests across two double cabins and a single main-head. A spacious cabin to aft features a double bed and a side-sofa that can be conveniently turned into a single bed, and features recessed lighting, circular portholes and a cedar-lined locker. A VIP suite to the bow, meanwhile, benefits from a skylight, a queen-sized island bed, underfloor storage, Sisal Seagrass carpeting, a full-height locker and cushioned wall panels. The main head comes with timber and stone surfaces, a porcelain sink, steel fixtures and mirrored medicine cabinets as well as a walk-in shower cubicle with a teak-lined bench.
A hand-laid proprietary Tiara hull with an Imron coating, a fine entry, modified chines and traditional strakes promotes confident handling and superb balance across a range of conditions while twin 370MHP Volvo Penta IPS500 pod-drives offer top speeds of up to 35 knots. At cruising speeds of 26 knots, meanwhile, you can expect a range of around 272 nautical miles, a distance that only increases the slower you go.
