The Tiara Yachts EX 54 adds a second model to the builder’s EX series, which started with the flagship EX 60. The trademark of this series is each yacht’s flexibility, which is especially evident in the cockpit.

For entertainment-centric owners, the EX 54 has a lounge-module option with solid-surface countertops, a drawer-style refrigerator and an optional ice maker.

For angling aficionados, there is an adventure module that includes a sink with a cutting board, an optional livewell, five rod holders at the transom, an insulated cooler tub, tackle stowage with dividers, and an electric grill to cook the catch of the day.

There is also a glass patio module. In this setup, there is a laminated glass bulkhead, a high-gloss teak countertop, and adjustable ottomans that can lock into place. The ottomans are covered in Ultraleather, with four color options: Whitewater Beige, Lighthouse White, Coast Dolphin Gray and Sea Cliff Gray.

In all versions, the EX 54 has three staterooms, accommodating six guests for extended cruising. The owners’ stateroom is amidships, spans the yacht’s full 15-foot-11-inch beam, and has a queen pedestal berth and an en suite head with a separate shower stall. The room also has ocean views via hullside windows flanking the space. Additional amenities include a 50-inch smart HDTV, 18,000-Btu Webasto air conditioning, a settee to starboard (a great place to read a book on the hook), a cedar-lined hanging locker and a backlit mirror.

Like the owners’ stateroom, the forepeak VIP has a queen berth. There are hullside windows and a skylight, and a 32-inch HDTV. The VIP has access to a head that also serves as the day head. A third stateroom is abaft and to starboard of the VIP with bunk berths for kids.

The main- deck interior has an L-shaped galley aft and to starboard with direct access to the cockpit. Across is a dining table that, at first glance, looks like an L-shaped layout. However, the companion helm seat to port slides forward to create a U-shaped scenario, increasing seating for another guest or two.

The helm is forward and to starboard, with two 22-inch Garmin GPSMap 8622 displays (a third is optional), a Stidd helm seat, and side-deck access via a sliding pilothouse door.

Power is a pair of Volvo Penta IPS950 diesels.

Clever Design

There are foldout terraces to port and starboard, increasing usable cockpit space. They have Herculan synthetic teak soles, and each side has an integrated boarding door.
