We tracked down the inside scoop on what boatbuilders are up to next.
The lid’s been kept on pretty tight over at Tiara when it comes to the new Q44. The project was officially announced to much fanfare at this past Miami show, but I had been tracking it for months for this column. The Q44 will be a quintessential Tiara, replete with the distinctive lines that make Tiaras so easy to spot. She’ll be available with either pods or shafts that should have her moving in the 30-knot range, and she’ll also have Glass Cockpit technology. Another interesting note, legendary Tiara founder Leon Slikkers has been very involved with this boat’s progression. It should be interesting to see what one of the marine industries’ wisest elders has in store for us, what with an almost unmatched amount of accumulated boatbuilding knowledge. For now though, we’ll just have to wait and see how that ghostly rendering above materializes. There’s lots to come from Tiara, and lots to like as well.
