Can you say Tiara Yachts and triple outboards in the same sentence?

The Tiara Sport 38 LS, which stands for Luxury Sport, is the first-ever outboard-powered Tiara, and the first boat in the Tiara Sport line, which is expected to grow to seven models ranging from 29 to 42 feet length overall.

The 38 LS fuses center console sensibilities with the amenities of an express day cruiser. Tiara’s design team created distinct social zones, with wraparound seating forward and a clever turntable dinette aft.


In between is the enclosable helm area with triple bucket seats, and a teak-trimmed console with room for dual 16-inch Garmin monitors. There are Yamaha Helm Master shifter/throttle controls as well as a joystick for easy maneuvering, and a standard bow thruster.

Inside the cabin is an enclosed head with 7-foot headroom, a VacuFlush toilet and a shower. There’s also a full-size berth (54 by 79 inches) with a foam mattress.

The one-piece curved windshield (left) on the 38 LS provides forward views through tempered glass withouta single mullion in the way. A pantograph wiper is big enough to clear the windscreen, and tempered-glass side windows provide protection from the elements. The 38 LS’s hardtop has husky supports aft, as well as on the outside of the windscreen. It also has a hand-stitched headliner, twin skylights, an opening hatch over the wheel, speakers and LED lighting. Tiara

Outboard power is new to Tiara, and the standard (and only) choice is a trio of 350 hp Yamaha V-8 5.3L four-strokes. This setup gets the 38 LS up to more than 48.3 knots darn quick. She cruises at 30.2 knots while sipping 40.9 gph, getting 0.85 mpg.


Tiara equipped the 38 LS with a standard 5 kW Onan generator, Garmin electronics, a Fusion stereo and an LCD TV. The boat also has space allocated for an optional Seakeeper gyro.

Play Spin-the-Dinette

On a lot of boats, the U-shaped dinette with varnished teak table faces forward, toward a sink, fridge and grill. On the Tiara Sport 38 LS, anyone who wants to look aft can do so without flipping seat backs or moving cushions. The entire console spins with the push of a finger, turning the seats, table, teak deck and underseat stowage. It’s a smart setup for times when boaters are towing kids on water toys, wetting a line at trolling speed or just enjoying the view. Tiara Sport 38LS

Construction is a hand-laminated hull and an infused fiberglass structural grid that strengthens the hull while creating finished bilges.

For owners of the Tiara Sport 38 LS, the real trick will be to practice in the mirror saying, “I own an outboard-powered Tiara.”
