Brief Summary

The Tiara Sport 38 LS made her debut in the fall of 2017, but it’s only now that the impact of this model has really settled in. For one thing, she won an Innovation award at the 2018 Miami International Boat Show for cuddy cabin and bowrider boats (interestingly, she falls into both categories thanks to her “off-center console” design). She’s also the first boat called a “Tiara” to have outboard propulsion. But that in itself is news: Tiara Sport is its own brand, the third under S2 Yachts, the company that builds Tiara Yachts as well as Pursuit Boats. The Tiara Sport 38 LS carries a bit of the DNA from each of the other brands, from her triple Yamaha F350 outboards to her inventive deckplan. But we’ll tell you why she’s got more to offer.

    Editor's Report

    Tiara Sport 38 LS running
    Tiara Sport introduced its 38 LS to take family fun to the next level.

    The triple Yamaha F350 outboards are mounted in such a way that recalls an engine bracket, a swim platform and a Euro transom, all at the same time.

    Creative Solutions

    Want to make a center console that offers something a little different? Then decide what is most important about the center console and keep that, while ditching the rest. In short order, the designers at Tiara Sport figured out that the central location of the center console—which allows anglers to pass by both sides while fighting fish all around the boat—was less important than comfort of the crew in this model. The idea of wraparound seating in the bow, as well as additional high-headroom space in the cabin beneath the console made sense. The portside raised step was another advantage.

    Tiara Sport 38 LS windshield
    Tiara Sport grabbed some windshield and hardtop design from sister brand Pursuit Boats for the 38 LS.

    The boat has a full-beam hardtop supported by the windshield frame forward and large struts aft to the covering boards that shades the amidships area and helm. Seating there is three-wide with a center helm. The middle seat adjusts electrically fore and aft, and the skipper has two levels of angled teak footrests.

    The side seats have flip-down footrests while a lower section on the console’s aft side folds down to create a platform between the console and the seats for better sightlines from the helm. The curved, tempered safety-glass windshield has a beefy frame and provides protection from the elements. The hardtop has built-in overhead LED lighting as well as skylights and an opening hatch for ventilation. An optional Makefast Marine electric sunshade can extend from the aft edge of the hardtop to shelter the cockpit.

    The centerline helm and two companion seats have folding armrests and the forward half of each seat folds up to become a bolster for leaning.

    High-gloss finishes and glass-bridge-style Garmin helm displays contribute to the yacht-like feel on the Tiara Sport 38 LS.

    Aft-facing seats and high-gloss wood accent an al fresco galley area with electric grill.

    The galley area abaft the helm seats features gloss-finished teak faces on the storage drawer and a drawer-style refrigerator, with an electric grill above and sink to port.

    The foredeck seating area has a stainless steel bowrail set into the covering boards. An available Mediterranean-style sunshade is deployed on stainless hardware.

    Pivoting Cockpit Seating Area

    Aft is a U-shaped cockpit lounge with dining table up on a raised platform, facing an al fresco galley with centerline electric grill along with sink and countertop. Here’s an innovative idea: Tiara Sport made the whole seating area rotate so that the U-shaped lounge can face aft in seconds. A hi-lo table lets the lounge be converted to a sun pad.

    The aft lounge turns easily on its pedestal to become a great vantage point for family watersports at anchor.

    A main deckplan gives an idea of how this asymmetrical layout makes the most of her space. Note the companionway to port on the aft side of the console.

    Details in the Cabin

    Solid-teak steps lead down from the companionway on the console to the cabin beneath the console, where a separate head compartment and athwartships berth allow for comfortable overnighting. Lockers and a flatscreen TV round out the amenities.
