Tiara Yachts 48 LE

Tiara Yachts traces its heritage back to 1946 , when founder Leon Slikkers began his boat-building career at Chris-Craft. Within 10 years he would go on to form his own brand, SlickCraft, embrace fiberglass hull construction and ultimately found S2 Yachts with sons David and Robert in 1974. Initially a builder of sailboats, S2 launched the Tiara powerboat line in 1976 that would ultimately become today’s Tiara Yachts brand. Handcrafted luxury models with virtually all components built in-house in Holland, Michigan , Tiara now produces 9 different models from 34’ to 60’. These include the EX series, powered by Volvo Penta’s Inboard Performance System (IPS) pod drives, and the LS, LX and LE models powered by Mercury Verado outboards.

Tiara builds two true yachts, the EX 54 and the EX 60 , powered by Volvo Penta’s Inboard Performance System. Outboard-powered choices include the LS dayboat from 34’ – 48’, a 35’ LX dual-console bowrider , 43’ and 48’ LE express cruisers .

Tiara Yachts is headquartered and boats built in Holland, Michigan.

Tiara works closely with two power partners, Volvo Penta and Mercury. Inboard models use Volvo Penta’s Inboard Performance System (IPS) . Tiara’s outboard models use Mercury Verados.

Tiara Yachts provides Limited Warranty coverage on products sold for use by retail customers . It applies to the original purchaser of the boat but can be transferred to subsequent owners. Coverage includes defects in materials and workmanship in the boat and all components and accessories for two years; structural defects in materials and workmanship in hull and deck for a period of five years; blistering due to defects in material and workmanship in the painted surface of the hull bottom for a period of five years, providing that the surface has not been altered in any way (including sanding, sandblasting or application of a coating other than standard antifouling paint).

Tiara Yachts are easy to maintain. Like any boat, basic maintenance, including washing and waxing the fiberglass hull, keeping compartments clean and dry, and cleaning and using protectant on vinyl surfaces will keep any boat looking and performing like new for years to come.

Boats left in the water should have hulls cleaned yearly to remove marine growth; anti-fouling paint on submerged areas of the hull should also be applied.

Follow the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule, including yearly engine service, to ensure reliable, safe operation. Factory-recommended service should be performed at an authorized Tiara Yachts dealer.

All Tiara models are designed with family excursions in mind, with abundant creature comforts and stable, smooth-running hull designs.

From humble beginnings to building a $3.5M boat: The journey of Tiara Yachts

tiara yachts history

HOLLAND, Mich. — When you walk into Tiara Yachts in Holland, you're immediately greeted by a sixteen-feet long boat shining under the lobby lights. It's a 1958 Runabout, restored to its original condition.

For Tom Slikkers, it isn't just another boat. It's a piece of history that tells his dad's story.

“So when we come into work every day, this is a great reminder of our humble beginnings, and what now has transpired into being a great legacy," said Slikkers, President and CEO of Tiara Yachts .

In the mid-1940s, his dad, Leon, worked for Chris Craft, another boat company in West Michigan. He worked there for nine years, building a dream home for his wife and family on the side.

Then, in 1955, Leon decided it was time to take a risk.

“So he sold the home that he built, he paid off all his bills and he had $5,000 to his name," said Slikkers. "He had to find a place to work, find a place to live and then start his business.”

Leon started by building boats in his garage, creating everything by hand. In fact, the first-ever steering wheel he ever made sits on a shelf as you walk from the lobby to the production plant.

Eventually, Leon bought an old roller skating rink and turned that into his factory.

The 1958 Runabout at the front entrance was one of his first models. It sold for $1,165 at that time.

Fast forward to now, and you won't find a boat at Tiara Yachts for less than half-a-million dollars.

Leon left the company when he retired in September, but the company hasn't left the family. Leon's two sons, Tom and David, along with their three combined sons, all work together at the company, while his daughter is a shareholder.

As president and CEO, Slikkers's goal is to keep the company's original identity alive by making sure the risk-taking attitude doesn't slow down.

“It’ll have the most innovation and wide breadth of technology that we’ve ever put into a boat," said Slikkers.

He was talking about their most expensive project yet — a $3.5 million dose of luxury — the EX 60 .

It's a 60-foot-long, 17-feet-wide yacht, with all the bells and whistles you can imagine.

From the initial drawings, to the mock-up FOX 17 got to check out on Thursday, the idea is one and a half years in the making. Now, the first edition is finally underway.

The plan is to have the EX 60 in full production by early next year. It's a beautiful benchmark for success, floating on the foundation of those humble beginnings.

"This is a reminder that it started small," said Slikkers. "You can’t get too big for your britches.”

Tiara’s New Flagship Is a Spunky, Go-the-Distance 60-Footer. Here’s What It’s Like on the Water.

In Tiara’s 60-year history, this is its biggest, most luxurious and most expensive offering to date. The first in its new EX range, it sits above the popular C49 inboard coupe and 48LS outboard models.

The new EX 60 is Tiara's flagship.

Penned by Tiara’s design director Andrew Bartlett, the lines of the EX 60 closely follow those of the smaller Coupe models. That means a graceful, unbroken shearline from transom to bow, a curvy, raked-back windshield, swoopy hardtop, and lots of windows.

On first impressions of the EX, moored stern-to at the Stuart dock, it was clear the focus was on classic style and elegance, rather than breaking any design rules. Tiara leaves the bold, plumb bows and vertical windshields to the Europeans.

The real focus here, however, is on outdoor space, and here the EX 60 excels. The oversize, two-level aft cockpit features a lower section with opposite facing sofas and dining table. Power-lowering side terraces increase the beam from 16’11” to 20’6”—and make terrific dive platforms.

Step down to the hydraulic swim platform, and the entire section can lower into the water to launch a large tender—an optional 345 Williams jet RIB on our test boat—or double as a spacious beach club.

Step-up to the salon-level cockpit and the surprise-and-delight feature is the height-adjustable breakfast bar—perfect for gazing out over the stern with a coffee or sunset cocktail.

The EX features a well-equipped galley on the starboard side with a U-shaped dinette opposite. Power back the large sunroof in the hardtop, for al fresco dining.

Also impressive is the yacht’s helm station. With twin seats on either side, it’s a great place to watch the action, courtesy of terrific all-round visibility and impressively tall windows. The power-sliding pilothouse door is just a terrific feature.

Below decks are three cabins and two heads, with a spacious amidships master suite, a forward VIP and a twin-berth guest cabin. All the interior decorations are the work of Seattle-based designer Mary Flores.

Power-wise, the EX 60 is offered with 1350 Volvo Penta D13 turbo diesels with shafts driving IPS pods.

Out in the St. Lucie River it was easy to see why they chose these powerplants. Push forward on the throttles and the 55,000-pound Tiara leaps from idle to 30mph in just 17 seconds. Flat out we hit an impressive top speed of 46mph with the big Volvos spinning at just 2,454 rpm.

Throttle back to Matt’s preferred 29-mph cruise speed and the engines were burning just 52 gallons per hour, delivering a range of around 350 miles.

The new EX 60 is Tiara's flagship.

What impressed us the most was the hushed refinement of the EX at speed. Tiara puts a great deal of effort in keeping things quiet, and even at that 46-mph top speed, the noise level in the salon was just 72 decibels. That was just three decibels more than at 23 mph.

Despite the fact that the boat has yet to be officially unveiled, hulls 2, 3 and 4 have already been sold. After the Ex 60’s long-distance delivery, they can be sure the boat can go the extra mile.

HOLLAND, MI — Inside Tiara Yachts, amid a whir of cranes, trucks and machinery, Thomas Slikkers climbs aboard a prototype of his company’s newest luxury watercraft, the EX 60.

Today, the 60-foot vessel is still a work in progress. Its hull is unpainted. The cockpit, engine and navigation system have yet to be installed. But Slikkers, Tiara’s president and CEO, lights up with excitement as he describes the high-end flourishes that will make his company’s newest creation akin to a “high-end home on the water.”

“It really is our greatest hits,” he said.

With a roughly $3.5 million price tag, the EX 60 will feature a customizable cockpit with plush seating, an outdoor breakfast bar, and two bathrooms. It boasts a well-appointed kitchen, and the propulsion system has extras such as assisted docking. Below deck, three sleeping areas can accommodate six adults.

For more than 60 years, the Slikkers family has been making boats in Holland — and the EX 60 is its biggest and most expensive boat yet.

The family’s start in the boating business dates back to 1955 when Leon Slikkers, Thomas Slikkers’ father, left his job at Chris-Craft Boats to start Slickcraft Boat Company. He funded the venture by selling his family’s home for $5,000 and using the proceeds to buy materials and rent space on Washington Avenue near downtown Holland. Then, he moved his family into an apartment above his new shop.

Launching the business was a gamble. But Leon Slikkers found success with the 16-foot Slickcraft premier. Featuring a molded mahogany plywood hull, the 16-foot vessel sold for $1,165 in 1958. By the late 1960s, the company had grown in popularity, and Slikkers sold his business to American Machine and Foundry.

But Leon Slikkers, whose family describes him as a “true entrepreneur,” soon craved independence.

In 1973, he resigned as president of Slickcraft, and the following year he launched S2 Yachts, the parent company of Tiara Yachts.

“It had very small, humble beginnings,” Thomas Slikkers said. “But within a short period of time, my dad was able to convince people that we’ve got a great product here.”

Today, the private, family-owned company has grown substantially.

Inside its headquarters, 725 E. 40th St., 600 employees design, build and sell yachts. The company’s boats, the least expensive of which retails for more than $500,000, are sold to customers throughout the U.S. as well as Central America, South America, the Caribbean, Italy and elsewhere. Its biggest markets are the U.S. and portions of Latin America.

“Wherever there’s big blue water, that’s usually a good market for us,” said Slikkers, who grew up with the business but officially joined Tiara Yachts in 1982 as an accounting clerk.

The EX-60, which has been in the works for 1 ½ years, is still under development, but the prototype is slated to be complete by mid-August and available to customers later this year. The company has a focus on luxury, and high-end features that create a comfortable, quiet experience for customers.

“We want you to enjoy nature, and enjoy the sounds of nature — not the sounds of our diesel engines,” said Andrew Bartlett, Tiara’s director of design.

Walking through the company’s cavernous factory, where about 400 workers create the yachts, Slikkers describes the craftsmanship that Tiara prides itself upon. Nearly everything on each yacht, from its furniture to its kitchen cabinets, are made in house. Engines that power Tiara’s boats are made by outside companies, such as Volvo Penta and Mercury.

Workers at Tiara can produce about one boat a day, Slikkers said.

On a recent afternoon, as a worker inside the factory inspected a 43-foot LS yacht, Slikkers said his company’s production line is not unlike an automotive assembly line. The process starts with the hull, the body of the boat, and about halfway through the deck is added. Later, chairs, furniture, paneling and interior fixtures are installed.

Finally, the vessel is painted, and put on a truck for delivery, he said.

“It hasn’t been painted yet,” Slikkers said, as he pointed to the 43-foot LS yacht. “So, it’s not as pretty as it’s going to be.”

While Tiara has evolved, adding new models, production techniques and automation, the company has stayed true to its roots as a family-owned company, Slikkers said. Walk inside Tiara Yachts, and you might bump into one of his six family members who work there.

His brother David serves as director of government relations, while his brother Bob is senior vice president of operations. His son Alex is a sales and marketing specialist, and two of his nephews, Tim and Kelly, also call Tiara yachts home. Kelly’s wife, Tiffany, has joined the family business too. She works in human resources.

That level of family involvement creates a bond that isn’t present in every business, said Slikkers, whose father, Leon, retired from Tiara in September.

“We aren’t trying to make sure that we’ve got a golden parachute tucked in the back corner in case we ever need to jettison at the first sign of trouble,” he said. “We’re the guys that are still driving the ship when she’s taking on water.”

Tiara yachts’ michelle seneca named a 2024 “women making waves” recipient by boating industry.

Seneca is recognized as a trailblazer and one of the most impactful women in the marine industry

HOLLAND, Mich., June 18, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tiara Yachts , a family-owned manufacturer of American-made luxury watercrafts celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2024, today announced that Director of IT, Michelle Seneca, has been selected as a winner of the 2024 Boating Industry’s Women Making Waves award.

As a valued member of the Tiara Yachts team for more than three decades, Michelle began her career as executive assistant to David Slikkers, president and eventual CEO of S2 Yachts. As her reach into the organization grew, she found a passion for technology, continued her college education, received a leadership role within the team’s IT department, and ultimately became the first woman to join the Senior Leadership team.

“When I first came to work at Tiara, I took notes at the Senior Leadership meetings. Today, I’m a member of the Senior Leadership team and I’m able to influence and contribute in a greater way to the success of the company,” said Seneca.

In her role, Seneca successfully implemented an enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, making Tiara Yachts one of the first marine industry manufacturers to integrate automation technologies to boat production lines. In return, Tiara Yachts has increased production efficiencies, empowered marine industry craftsman to focus on the art of the build, and strengthen customer satisfaction.

However, one of the things she’s most passionate about is mentoring other young women to pursue an education in the male-dominated IT field.

As of 2022, women held only 28% of computing and mathematical roles in the US ( Zippia ). Furthermore, women accounted for only 18% of computer science degrees (Bureau of Labor Statistics) and half of women pursuing tech industry positions drop out by the age of 35 ( Accenture ). Seneca feels privileged to have grown Tiara Yachts’ IT department with nearly half the team being females.

“Being able to shape and inspire young women in technology and the marine world is really rewarding. I'm grateful to be a part of Tiara’s team and I look forward to witnessing the future of women in the marine industry,” continued Seneca.

The Women Making Waves award honors the women in the industry who have and continue to contribute to its success, propel its growth and lead their individual organizations to success. Tiara Yachts’ Quality Manager Fawn Filley-Myers received the recognition in 2023.

“Michelle’s dedication to Tiara and to uplifting women in the marine industry is truly inspiring,” said Tom Slikkers, CEO and President of Tiara Yachts. “Her efforts and implementations have propelled Tiara’s practices to a new level of performance, streamlining the way we do things without compromising quality, creativity, or craftsmanship. I look forward to watching her continue to grow in her career and to witnessing how she continues to shape the future generation of women in the marine industry.”

The full list of 2024 recipients can be viewed on Boating Industry ’s website and within the latest print issue . To learn more about Tiara Yachts, please visit tiarayachts.com .
