Captain's Report

Tiara Yachts EX 60, new Tiara 60

The new EX 60 measures 60’3” (18.36 m) long overall with a 16’11” (51.6 m) beam and she’s powered by Volvo Penta IPS pod propulsion systems.

At the Discover Boating Miami International Boat Show, Tiara Yachts announced plans for the company’s largest yacht to date, the EX 60. She’s a 60’3” (18.36 m) long yacht with a 16’11” (51.6 m) beam that blends design elements of the company’s LS and inboard coupe lines.

For optimum personalization, an owner can choose among four layouts for the aft cockpit. Al Fresco and Aft Cockpit modules as well as a Breakfast Bar Module with ottoman seating are available. The Adventure Module has rod holders, a livewell and tackle storage. Tiara says the flagship yacht will be completed in the last quarter of 2022 at its headquarters in Holland, MI.

The main deck places a premium on ease of movement from the stern to the bow and into the salon.

The Stern

The EX 60 comes with a hydraulic swim platform that’s large enough to accommodate a rigid-hulled inflatable (RIB) tender. The stern can be configured with an Adventure Module that has rod holders on the trailing edge and a livewell, grill and ice maker plus storage on the front. An owner can also select a lounge on the front side. Regardless of the choice made, the entire aft module raises on power rams to access voluminous storage.

The convertible cockpit seats that have become a Tiara trademark are on the EX 60, which also has opening bulwarks on each side of the cockpit. Even with the opening bulwarks, there are also opening side doors on each side of the boat. At the front are an aft-facing lounge and a table.

It’s a step up to the mezzanine deck where there’s a forward-facing lounge with a small table that can be set at coffee, dining and standing heights. There are also two L-shaped lounges on each side, plus a hatch to access the engine compartment in the deck.

The majority of the aft deck raises on power rams to reveal enough storage for a kayak and more.

The narrower table makes it easier to pass on the teak-covered deck.

Tiara EX 60, aft lounges

An owner can opt for an extra lounge across the stern that creates booth-style seating. The table folds in half if needed.

The bulwarks open to expand the cockpit for all kinds of fun.

Tiara EX 60, side doors, hullside doors, boarding doors

To facilitate boarding from a dock, there are hullside doors on each side of the cockpit.

The Bow

From the cockpit, it’s a step up to the teak-covered side decks. At about amidships, step up once more to head forward to the bow lounge. It has a sofa-style sunpad with a raised backrest and padded sides as well. There’s a walkway between the lounge and the anchor locker that has ground tackle beneath a flush hatch.

Tiara has always done a good job of providing as much storage space as possible and the EX 60 looks to be no different.

The Salon

Heading back down the symmetrical side decks, the glass bulkhead separating the mezzanine deck from the salon basically disappears to link the two gathering areas seamlessly. A J-shaped lounge wraps around a table to port with the galley to starboard. A TV rises out of the back of the galley.

Tiara devised a system to fully open the doors to make it easy to connect the mezzanine to the salon.

On the left side of the salon, the lounge is raised to provide guests with views that are as unobstructed as possible.

Opposite, the galley has refrigerated drawers, a grill and microwave plus more outstanding views.

Tiara EX 60, salon TV

When it’s time to watch the game or the kids want to check out a movie, the TV pops up.

The Helm will have the Volvo Penta glass dash with accessory switches in a single row just above the steering wheel and the digital controls alongside to the right. The joystick is in the starboard armrest of the doublewide helm seat and just alongside is a pilot door that the captain can open and step outside for a better view while still being able to work the joystick.

Opposite ahead of the triple-wide companion seat to port are engine monitoring screens plus the Fusion stereo control. The atrium stairs to the accommodations level are in between.

The helm deck has redundant screens to port so companions can help the captain with navigating or checking on engine status.

Kudos to Tiara for the pilot door alongside the helm and notice that the joystick on the helm seat armrest is in reach.

Accommodations Deck

Even though the EX 60 is considered a day boat, she still has accommodations for six.

Belowdecks, the EX 60 can accommodate six adults in three cabins including a full-beam master. The owner’s cabin can have a sofa or chest of drawers to starboard and has an en suite with a separate shower while the guest cabin to starboard and the VIP in the bow share the second head.

The guest cabin can have the berths separate or pushed together.

The VIP cabin in the bow rivals the master for comfort and fit and finish.

Power and Performance

Continuing its long partnership with Volvo Penta, Tiara plans to power the EX 60 with twin 1,200- or 1,350-hp IPS pod propulsion systems. Tiara expects her to hit a top speed of 41.5 mph/36 knots with the 1200s or 44 mph/38 knots with the 1350s. The company is also focused on reducing noise, vibration and harshness when underway and naval architects designed her so the air conditioning systems and water pumps are housed in an aft compartment that isolates them from the helm and accommodations.

The EX 60 could be called a day boat or an adventure yacht. She’s designed for versatility.

At Your Service

Additionally, Tiara will have individualized Concierge service for each EX 60 buyer, providing updates of various stages of construction and when the time is right, the consumer will be brought to the factory to see his boat take shape. Once the boat is ready for delivery, the Concierge will conduct the initial sea trial.
