General Details

Aren’t all these listings Tiara 42’s?  NO!  This is a CAT C-12  715hp Tiara 42.  If you have never had the opportunity to run this boat with the CAT C-12 engine upgrade (715 hp ea. Vs. 535 to 660hp for the Cummins QSM11 series) you can’t imagine the difference!  But the difference is not just top end speed.  With these engines she operates at cruise speeds in a completely different range on the power curve.  Translation: she has more torque power when you need it and isn’t working as hard to provide it.  Higher top end plus more power to push through the seas.  The Cummins engine Tiara is a great boat.  The CAT boat is Amazing! 

This boat is also the cleanest, best maintained I have seen in many years.  She has spent her life as a gentleman’s day fishing boat, not a tournament battlewagon, although she is certainly equipped for it.  Cared for by someone who understands what it takes and can afford to keep a yacht in Bristol condition.  If you would have been a knowledgeable enough buyer to invest in these upgraded features buying her new, here is your opportunity.  **CAT Extended Warranty January 28,2016

Engine Room, Gelcoat, Canvas, Isinglass…flawless.  This boat originally sold for low $600’s, then add the C-12 engine option.  Add a $45K tower and riggers, complete redundant electronics, Tiara Tournament Package, Integrated Teaser Reels, Icemaker, Bait Freezer, rocket launcher pedestal…. And maintain in as new condition. 

This boat and power package is a “sweet spot” boat (if you know what that term means) and I’ll put her up against a Viking, Bertram, Cabo, Luhrs or Hatteras any day. 

** Many high-res, detail photos to convey the condition of this boat available on request.

The side-decks are wide and easily managed.  On the foredeck is a stainless bow rail for safety and a large anchor rode locker with a Maxwell Windlass with foot controls on the deck and remote controls at the helm. Fresh and Raw water wash down for the anchor.  ** Note in the photos, this boat is so clean the anchor locker reflects the line like a mirror!
