Holland, Michigan – Tiara Yachts debuted the new Q 44 to an audience of domestic and international factory authorized dealers during its annual conference commemorating 2015 model year achievements and introducing 2016 business plans for Tiara Yachts. The Tiara dealers along with a select group of marine media professionals were given access to sea trial and preview the boat prior to her release to the consumer marketplace.
The Q 44 is the brainchild of legendary boat builder Leon Slikkers and comes to life after more than 3 years of development built on Leon’s almost 70 years of boat building experience! Tiara’s design and engineering team delivered the vessel under the guidance of Leon Slikkers through a process of forums and feedback on each critical element that included full scale mockups, detailed computer aided design and Leon’s robust knowledge of boat building.
“Our company has a unique advantage in product design when you factor in the practical experience our chairman, my father, brings to product development. Our design process, coupled with real world experience, is delivering groundbreaking new products like the Q 44 which defines an entirely new market segment,” Tom Slikkers, CEO and President, S2 Yachts.
Like the successful Coupe series introduced by Tiara over the past two years, the Q 44 takes outdoor/indoor living to a whole new level. The Q 44 is a luxury SUV for the water, a unique blend of social zones built around a single level deck with full walk around and walk through capabilities. The bow, bridgedeck, companion seating and aft cockpit to teak beach all combine to deliver entertainment zones offering family and friends private areas to enjoy day-yachting as they wish.
The Q 44 appeals to all ages, from a use and safety standpoint. The captain has unimpeded visibility forward and aft so they may keep a keen eye on grandchildren or friends out for a day on your favorite stretch of coastline.
