2020 Tiara Yachts C 44 Coupe

Fort Myers, Florida


This vessel sustained no damage from hurricane Ian nor did the marina it is berthed in.  very easily viewed.

Heavily optioned and very well maintained Tiara C44.  Seakeeper 6, hydraulic platform, extended transferable Volvo warranty(*through 2026) as well as great condition separate this vessel from the others on the used market.  

Two stateroom two head layout.  Opening sunroof, electric aft sunshade, joystick operation with DPS, sat tv, underwater lights, exterior LED accent down lighting on rail and cupholders, cockpit woven carpet.   Vessel shows little use.  Main engines (260 hours) and generator (285 hours) recently serviced.  These boats have an excellent 2 stateroom, 2 head design with creating space for two couples that legitimately can have privacy in a vessel under 50'.  Multiple exterior spaces combined with an up galley/up salon layout makes for a beautiful machine.  Substantial amount of storage.  Sporty and responsive while running very much adds to the enjoyment.  Gorgeous machine.

Please see the rest of the listing for full details and to view the attached walk-through video.

Stern Platform

Because this large platform extends aft of the hull of the boat it makes boarding from a floating dock quite easy. But that is just one of its many uses…

Stern BBQ.

The swim platform runs nearly full beam and extends 60" fore and aft. Because it is so large, it serves as yet another "activity venue". For example, an optional electric grill on the transom console counter makes a fun place for a BBQ. With the grill away from the boat, greasy smoke will not stain the overhead. The wide counter surface insures that there is plenty of room for food prep, and we can see the chef and helpers enjoying standing on this platform as the burgers sizzle.
Naturally, the platform can be used for swimming and there is a recessed re-boarding ladder, hand holds, and a standard hot and cold water shower is tucked into the transom.

Hydraulic Platform.

Tiara offers a Nautical Structures hydraulic platform ($46,980) instead of the standard integral one. This serves the purpose of easily launching the yacht's tender or a PWC. Secondary duty will be to be a "teak beach" slightly submerged for both kids and adults to sit on and cool down on a hot summer day.

Cockpit/Aft Deck.

For most owners the cockpit will be the epicenter of activities on the Tiara 44 Coupe. It has been designed to be versatile so that the owner can stage cocktail parties, informal lunches, and more formal evening dinner parties without any hassle. The cockpit table is teak and does have a filler cushion for additional sun lounge. There are two stationary, aft-facing seats next to the cabin bulkhead which keep the cockpit open for cocktail parties. A cooler is below one of these seats and storage in the other.

Salon/Galley.  Sliding Door.

Entering the salon is through a heavy-duty, polished stainless steel framed sliding glass door. I really liked that Tiara installed a beefy handle on it, as we’ve learned that these doors take a beating over time. Just as important, the handle gives leverage and is a far better design than the plastic vertical sliding latch we find on some boats in class. The door panels stow to the sides, and opens the salon to the aft cockpit for one continued party room.
Opening side windows and the standard opening sunroof overhead complete the salon's commune with nature.
However, should the outside become too hot, the salons multiple AC systems keep it temp controlled. This will be powered by an Onan generator or shoreside from the 65’ (19.8 m) 50-Amp shorepower cord.


In the cabin is comprised of a huge L-shaped lounge that consumes almost half of the salon to port. Covered in buttery soft Ultraleather, this sofa is sure to win buyers over with its decadent comfort. A gleaming teak table offers dining space for at least four people, compliments the settee. 


in the salon/galley is solid teak, as standard. Interior wood is architectural teak and wenge. The L-shaped seating to port and the standard, hi-gloss teak, hi-lo pedestal table seats four adults. Tiara even includes throw pillows and a 29" TV with Blu-Ray DVD player.

Galley Up and Aft.

Immediately to starboard is the long counter top of the galley. Its configuration allows two people to work at meal prep, and not block access to the fridge and freezer drawers in the middle below the counter. The galley supports all the basic needs of cooking while cruising; convection/microwave oven, electric cooktop, deep sink and a solid-surface counter top. When the capabilities of the galley and the grilling station at the transom are considered, the 44 Coupe has all the makings of an epic holiday entertainment venue.

Operations. The Helm.

The captain is treated to the same plush seating at the helm. A wide, adjustable seat was chosen for the control station and is covered in supple Ultraleather upholstery. The dash features an ‘all glass cockpit’ with two, 12” Volvo-Garmin flat panel displays integrating all the navigation and propulsion monitoring into a touch screen package. The systems’ autopilot is so advanced that you can literally point to a location on the screen, and the yacht will change heading and go to that waypoint.

Standing Tall.

Tiara is going with nothing short of first-class with the helm area. First of all, the captain is able to actually stand at the helm, as well as sit, and see out the windshield without bending over or having to pop through the sunroof for a look-see. This sets the Tiara 44 Coupe apart from many European-built coupes, and is important for long trips, rugged conditions and when docking.
Steering and all engine controls are drive-by-wire.


Begins with dual displays from Volvo Penta’s Glass Cockpit. This system works in conjunction with Garmin displays and provides integration with all of the ship's systems, from electrical to mechanical, to navigational. Touchscreens provide displays, which can then be customized with preferences ideal to the individual operator.

Glass Dash/Electronics Galore.

The remote Garmin Grid controller is installed aft of the joystick. The integrated electronics package also includes a Garmin GPS, chartplotter, radar, sounder, and VHF. A Volvo Penta autopilot makes the electronics suite complete. A set of Kahlenberg dual trumpet air horns are included, to give the 44 Coupe the proper gravitas.
As mentioned, a joystick is standard, as are Lenco electric trim tabs. An aluminum windshield frame holds tempered safety glass and there are two windshield wipers and washers. 

Master Stateroom.

Another bright feature of the 44 Coupe is the master stateroom’s cabin door. A bi-fold design allows the cabin to be opened to the atrium when desired, expanding the openness of the room considerably. Large hull side windows with portholes deliver plenty of ambient light, plus a view of the water. The master stateroom is forward and is fitted with an island berth. The opening deck hatch above includes a built-in Ocean Air screen and separate privacy cover. While the deck is solid teak, the risers to either side of the island berth are carpeted. For the berth itself, Tiara went with a pillow-top innerspring mattress, upholstered headboard, coverlet and pillow shams.

Bedtime Details.

The foot of the berth lifts, and is held open with, the assistance of gas struts to access storage beneath. When the screened portlights and overhead hatch are not providing ventilation, the stateroom is cooled with the 8,000 BTU air conditioning system that also feeds to the head.  Entertainment features include a 19” (48.3 cm) flatscreen TV

The Master Head

is to port and it has a fully framed door, allowing private access from the master stateroom. A separate shower stall has a glass door and a teak seat. The counters are fabricated from teak with solid surface accents. Storage is via a lighted and mirrored medicine cabinet above a vanity and storage is below the vessel sink. As with the master, the sole is teak.

VIP Stateroom

Both beds in the VIP cabin are fitted with innerspring mattresses, upholstered headboard, coverlets and pillow shams. Storage is under the forward berth. The usual accommodations for cedar hanging lockers and hullside cabinets are present. Hullside windows and a skylight provide natural light. The stateroom is cooled with the 6,000 BTU air conditioner.

Guest Head/Day Head.

Most important, is the second head which is to starboard. This is the detail that so strongly sets the Tiara 44 Coupe’s layout plan apart from other boats in this size range. The builder has managed this feat by placing the toilet under a teak seat in the separate shower stall, so this space serves two purposes. This is considerably better than a wet head that incorporates the sink. Its shower door is also glass and the sole is teak. Both heads have VacuFlush toilets, ventilation fans and opening portlights with screens.

Hull Design

Tiara designers utilized its proven “Blue Water” hull rather than risk a new bottom design that could compromise ride quality in rough water. The blue water hull is an 18-degree dead rise deep-V running surface that is used on Tiara’s sportfishing boats. What better than a battlewagon bottom that spends it’s life pounding the swells off-shore?
With a sharp entry warping to an 18-degree deadrise at the transom, Tiara has combined efficiency with comfort. The construction of this hull is solid, laminated fiber-glass nearly ¾ of an inch thick below the waterline, with balsa coring on the hull sides for maximum strength and lightweight.

Performance - Propulsion

Volvo Penta IPS600 Diesel pod drives with 435 horsepower each The yacht has an amazing amount of acceleration considering she’s nearly a 33,784 lb. (15,324 kgs) displacement and a 14'11" (4.54 m) beam. She hops up to plane in 13.1 seconds at 3000 rpm and 26.4 miles per hour.

The Test Numbers.

Her WOT speed was 36.7 mph (31.9 knots) at 3600 rpm where she burned a total of 44 gph. Best cruise was found to be at 3250 rpm where she went 31.2 mph (27.1 knots) and burned 36 gph for a range of 273 statute miles (237 nm) with a 10% fuel reserve. Her endurance at that speed is 8.8 hours.

Slowdown Lowdown.

For those who are not in a hurry, at 11.6 mph (10 knots) she has a range of 416 sm and 362 nm. Pull her back to 1250 rpm and and go 9.1 mph (7.9 knots) and travel 983 sm or 855 nm. Check out our "Test Results" tab above for all of the details.


Most notable is the boat’s handling. Since the boat can be steered using either the wheel or the joystick, the captain can perform tight turns at speed by simply tilting the joystick to the side. The 44 Coupe does dip it’s shoulder as would be expected, but it is a very smooth transition as the boat rolls in and out of the turn. I noticed very little, if any, cavitation from the forward facing duo props regardless of how hard over I pushed the yacht. It should also be noted that this boat has passed the ABYC Quick Turn Test (H-26.8.3.) at WOT.

Engine Room

The engine room is accessed through a hatch in the cockpit deck. Tiara selected a pair of 435-hp Volvo Penta D6 engines driving IPS600 pods through jackshafts.  Volvo's "Active Corrosion Protection" system is standard. The entire compartment is protected with acoustical insulation. A plate mounted, through-bolted engine mounting system ties into vibration mounts. A three-port oil changing system will service the mains and single generator.
A single 350-gallon (1,325 L) fuel tank is ahead of the engines and mounted athwartships. An FE-227 automatic discharge fire protection system is also standard. Bronze seacocks are on all underwater thru-hull fittings.


Tiara builds all of its own electrical panels and harnesses in house to maintain maximum quality control. On a boat that is so turn-key as this one, it is not surprising to see everything done right as far as we can see. For example, there are two starting batteries for each engine, one for the generator and four house batteries. Everything is bonded, there is a battery charger, isolation transformer, and a Glendinning Cablemaster for the 65' of 50 Amp cord.
