Wellington Yacht Partners currently has Again, a Tiara Yachts 53 Coupe, listed for sale with an asking price of $1.379 million. The 2018 express cruiser has a three-stateroom, two-head, layout that can sleep six, low hours on its engines and sporty 34-knot speed.

Again‘s three staterooms make this yacht a solid fit for growing cruising families. There is a full-beam owner’s stateroom amidships, a VIP in the bow, and the third guest stateroom is abaft and to starboard of the VIP. The owner’s space has a king berth fitted with luxury linen sheets, a cedar-lined hanging locker, hullside windows and an overhead skylight for natural lighting, a 32-inch flat-screen TV and an en suite head. The forepeak VIP has a centerline scissor-style queen berth that converts into two single berths, cedar-lined hanging locker and en suite head. The VIP head also acts as the day head. The final guest stateroom has two singles as well as access to VIP head via the lower atrium.

Serving meals to the guests in the cockpit or the salon is made easy with the Tiara 53 Coupe’s aft galley layout. The galley is equipped with a three-burner electric cooktop, countertops to port and starboard, double stainless-steel undermount sinks with covers, a microwave oven, drawers and stowage lockers to provision for a cruise, four Isotherm 110V refrigerator and freezer drawers and a beverage cooler.

The salon is forward and one step up from the galley, beckoning guests to sit for casual conversation and enjoy the L-shaped sofa, lounge chair and fixed table to port. A love seat is to starboard, abaft the two-seat helm station, completing the salon’s seating arrangement. If the 360 degrees of natural sunlight from the salon’s windows isn’t enough, the captain can dial it up to 10 with the retractable sunroof.

When it comes to exterior spaces on board Again, the cockpit has two rear-facing seats flanking the sliding glass doors along with a folding table and bench seat aft against the transom. Pull up loose chairs for alfresco dining. Forward, side decks with high rails lead to the foredeck, which has a recessed sun pad with cup holders, a great spot for catching some sun before dinner ashore.

Power on Again comes from twin 750 hp Volvo Penta IPS950 diesels, giving this Tiara 53 Coupe a reported 34-knot top hop. It’s worth noting the engines only have 410 hours on them. This yacht also has joystick driving for close-quarters maneuvering.
