The Tiara 5200 Express is about as perfect a pre-owned yacht as one can find in the big Express Cruiser category. Skeeter is a solid, seaworthy vessel and one that reflects some of Tiara’s most classic design cues. With recently upgraded Simrad electronics, Fusion entertainment systems, plumbing and electrical enhancements, this cruiser is ready to serve her next owner. Resale value of this express cruiser remains one of the best in the market.
The open living space and accommodations represent what’s in demand in the luxury Express Cruiser category. Skeeter is combination day boat, entertainment platform, sunset chaser and coastal cruiser. All the comforts from air conditioning to teak finishes to Vacuflush heads. Skeeter is the two-stateroom model creating a huge saloon with a large guest cabin, guest head, and the galley aft to port. The master is forward with an en suite head. There is plenty of headroom throughout, much more than other boats this size. As on all Tiaras, the interior woodwork is beautiful, with teak-and-holly sole and cherry joinery. Everything in the Tiara is built on a large scale compared to a lot of Express boats that are European and very compartmentalized.
There is ample access to the engines and the other mechanical equipment as well as standing headroom. Engine-room access is from the cockpit or through a hatch in the center of the bridge deck.
Tiara put every bit of new technology that they had in this vessel, and it shows. This model year was the first Tiara that had the hardtop meet the top of the windshield for a modern look that didn’t come out on the rest of the fleet for a few years. Underway, this yacht delivers a comfortable ride. The 5200’s twin 850hp Cats deliver superior maneuverability and power to overcome any sea conditions while providing granular maneuverability. This yacht maintains a flat running angle, which skippers will find friendly, as you never lose sight ahead.
With her stunning blue hull, expansive fore deck, rows of guest seating and convenient wet bar, this yacht is the ideal platform to complement the southern California lifestyle.
