The Tiara 5000 Express combines spacious exterior accommodations built for fun and entertainment with a stylishly appointed interior. The 5000 speaks for itself with its grandeur looks, cosmopolitan flair, and functionality.

Key Features

    For water-sports fans there is a hot-and-cold shower back by the transom door to cool off or just wash off the salt before stepping back aboard. The cockpit can be very versatile with two dinette tables that rise out of the floor electrically for dining, or turned back into a sun worshiper’s haven with large sunpad cushions added in. On the bridge lounge there is a wetbar, sink, cutting board, icemaker and refrigerator so you can cut back on the traffic belowdecks and keep the conversations intact. The galley includes a Sub-Zero refrigerator, a microwave/convection oven, and a three-burner stove. With two staterooms, two heads and a complete entertainment center, the 5000 is ready to push off the docks for weeks at a time.

Tiara 5000 Express Captain's Report

At 50’ overall the 5000 Express is Tiara’s flagship yacht, and when you design a flagship you want to get everything right, from the grand features like the sprawling lounge right down to the details like the lifejackets customized with the Tiara logo.

With or without the optional hard top, the 5000 Express combines a spacious exterior built for fun with a stylishly appointed interior. Meanwhile a modified-V hull with 17 degrees of deadrise at the transom helps flatten out the bumps. In short, it’s the express cruiser taken to its logical extreme.

As you might expect on a yacht like this, the price tag reflects the 5000’s rugged, high-tech construction, which includes vacuum bagging, quad-axial fiberglass, and a mixture of balsa and PVC cores.

Caterpillar 660-hp engines put the express in the 5000 Express. At wide open throttle, she registered at 39.7 mph, while at her standard 1750 rpm cruise, she registered at 28.6 mph with a 410-mile range.

You might be surprised to find those heads stocked with Tiara towels, but it’s the details that count. After all, this is the Flagship, and the biggest jewel in the Tiara fleet. For more information call (616) 392-7163 or visit www.tiarayachts.com.
