Desert Escape Yacht Description

TIARA YACHTS are described as "A Distinctly American Sport Cruiser" and the TIARA 5200 SOVRAN SALON is a perfect example of that!  The current owners of Desert Escape have enjoyed cruising her on BOTH the US Intracoastal Waterways and the Atlantic Ocean from South Florida to Hilton Head Island, SC....She is happiest while underway to any destination and truly performs like a high-end Sports Car!  Having the fully enclosed upper helm/bridge deck IS A MUST!  It provides either heat or air conditioning for the perfect cruising environment...It doesn't get better than that!!!


Desert Escape is a turn-key Tiara 5200 Sovran yacht with less than 300 original hours on her recently heavily serviced 800/hp Caterpillar 3406E diesel engines that have a CAT authorized warranty.  Her recent owners (with over 25 years of yachting experience) have intentionally had her methodically upgraded over the past 6-months.  Recent upgrades and maintenance to the main engines and generator include the 1000-hour regular maintenance performed by CAT technicians including:  intercoolers, heat exchangers, hoses, water pumps, belts, fluids as well as bottom paint, cutlass bearings, rudder bearings, and props balanced.  She was also professionally detail


Onboard, you can enjoy three settees....(2) in the main salon below and (1) in the hard enclosed upper helm.  An oversized dining table (foldable to downsize) is perfect for comfortably seating six.  Her teak & holly sole interior reflects the detailed construction by TIARA YACHTS!  Her exterior deck is extremely user friendly and her classic design makes her a true beauty to behold.  The galley was upgraded with Vitrofrigo drawer refrigerators and the layout was modified to provide a more efficient and spacious floorplan.


This is a truly spectacular offering in near bristol condition....
