2011 Boats, Tiara 4500 Boats / Yachts Coming in Oct.

…On the (coming in OCT and in  about a mid-40s  in length) Sovran Tiaraa, dramatically reduced noise and vibration allow conversations in comfort while underway. Because Volvo Penta’s IPS® releases up to 25% fewer emissions, owners enjoy diesel power performance, economy and durability without exhaust smoke, noise or vibration. In fact, Volvo Penta’s IPS in the Tiara ….. Sovran delivers 25% better fuel efficiency, resulting in fewer trips to the fuel dock, increased speed and acceleration, and extended cruising range.

The …. Sovran also integrates the Volvo IPS joystick control, putting unmatched low-speed maneuverability at your fingertips. With a single, subtle movement of the IPS Joystick, you command the IPS propulsion units to respond in any direction. This gives you the power to maintain control of your ….. during tight-quarter docking, coming about, reversing or even going straight sideways – all without the need for bow thrusters.

Because IPS takes up 25% less area than traditional engines, the design team was able to employ the available space as a full second stateroom with head. Vessel sinks and shower partitions, an optional washer/dryer, a full-size refrigerator/freezer, even a spice rack and voluminous storage are a few of the options you will find. The cockpit seating is also both inviting and comfortable – a perfect environment for the cruising lover.

After spending an hour in a tight canal with a a Sovran from Tiara equipped with IPS, I’ll sing its praises to anyone who askes. Best thing for boating in 50 years….
