That Tiara’s new 50 Coupe represents a design departure for the Holland, Michigan-based boatbuilder becomes evident the minute you enter the cabin. This boat’s accommodations are bright, airy and heavy on the feng shui. The dark-panel, teak-bedecked club look is gone, like so many bubbles in a wake that streams back across the years. But this new cruiser hasn’t given up what we consider one of Tiara’s hallmark trademarks. What is it? Read on and find out.
I may be overstating the point. I believe one will find a hint of teak in each and every space aboard the 50 Coupe. This might be the electric table that rises from the cockpit sole, the locker doors in the salon, the vanity counter in the head or the trim ringing the guest berth belowdecks. In effect, the longstanding Tiara DNA is there, but this new generation replaces bulkheads completely paneled in wood with some upholstered in light fabric, offering an elegant hand and a bright look. Drawer pulls, and other hardware, are square-shaped and stylish; the locker doors they operate are no longer louvered and proud. Instead these solid doors and drawers fully overlay the frames upon which they hinge. The nautical coziness offered by a cabin with old-school ports and hatches has been replaced with the fresh, energizing feel resulting from the torrent of sunlight that streams through the hull side windows and an atrium forward of the helm.
Aboard the 50 Coupe, both heads and both staterooms are belowdecks. (An optional three-stateroom plan is available.) The galley and salon, along with the helm, are “topside,” under the hardtop. The cockpit is naturally aft, but know that Tiara has equipped this space with flexible furnishings, like the electric table and convertible, movable ottoman-seats and a retractable sun shade, so that it serves as well for al fresco socializing as it does as a staging point for water sports to be enjoyed off the capacious swim platform and dinghy handling system. With “heads and beds” belowdecks and such amenity-rich topside areas, the 50 Coupe delivers extraordinary privacy for the owner while simultaneously providing an entertaining experience that’s rare to find at this length overall.
