The Tiara 53 Flybridge is a 54-foot luxury motor yacht with a flybridge launched by the award-winning Michigan-based yacht-building firm Tiara Yachts in 2017. One of the largest yachts to ever leave the Tiara boatyard, the 53 Flybridge bears a striking, modern profile with a flared bow, jagged glazing, sleek lines and a bridge that seems to defy gravity. A seaworthy hull, next-generation pod-drive engines and cool, contemporary interiors round out this superb yacht’s appeal, making it a superb choice for extended cruising with the whole family.
188-square feet of canopy-covered flybridge space promises room to relax and soak up the views, while an elevated central helm station provides the perfect spot to command your vessel with the sea breeze rushing through your hair. Up here there is a hook-shaped dining sofa to the rear that hugs a wide breakfast table, a wet-bar island with a grill and a vast modular seating area with daybed dimensions, cup-holders and backrests that traces the sides of the bridge all the way to the front.
On the main deck you will find a cushioned double sunpad out on the foredeck with marina-facing views, while guardrail enclosed side-decks lead back to a sheltered aft-cockpit. Back here you will enjoy sipping cocktails on a gently curving transom sofa for up to four guests that is matched with a pair of bespoke ottomans in waterproof upholstery, a loveseat, an extending glossy teak dining table and a wet-bar with an optional ice-chipper. Side steps lead down to a 70-inch hydraulic swimming platform, a transom locker and a cleverly hidden transom grill perfect for barbecuing your line-caught fish.
Interiors strike a fine balance between modern elegance and traditional comfort, with authentic teak floors joining steel fixtures, recessed lighting, brushed fiberglass and wenge-wood cabinets for a high-class finish. There is an aft-galley directly beyond the rear sliding glass doors, where you will find a three-zone Kenyon hob, a wine cooler, a Samsung combination microwave oven, a steel sink, granite-effect work surfaces and bulky under-counter Isotherm fridge-freezer units. Ahead of the galley sits a handsome main-deck lounge with an L-shaped sofa, a double settee and an armchair that surround a custom-built coffee table. At the front of the main-deck there is a starboard side Glass Cockpit helm station boasting a pair of 16-inch Garmin multi-function touchscreens with integrated controls, a Penta Plus joystick, thruster controls, a Ritchie SuperSport compass, VHF radio, Seakeeper 9 gyrostabilizer switches and Volvo engine feedback. If you want a larger salon on this level, then you can remove the helm on this level and stick with one set of controls up on the flybridge.
Across the lower deck there is space for up to four overnight guests across two double en-suite staterooms, though there is an option to exchange a lower storage room for a twin bunk berth raising the overnight capacity to six. A scissor berth to the bow features large portholes, a skylight, cedar-lined lockers and two twins that can be pushed together to form a double. A full-beam owner’s stateroom amidship features panoramic knife-insert hull glazing, a king-sized bed, a double-width closet, bedside cabinets, carpeted floors and a bathroom lined in Aurora Ash, steel and timber with a waterfall shower cubicle.
