Tiara is building a new 43 LE, the first model in its Luxury Express series, with sports styling, upscale touches, and outboard power. The 43 LE is scheduled to be launched later this summer.
The new boat has an innovative seating arrangement up top, and two staterooms and one head with shower below. The master stateroom is forward with an island queen berth, and the guest cabin is amidships with a double berth.
The 43 LE is a sistership to the popular 43 LS that was launched at the Fort Lauderdale show in 2017 with a first-of-its-kind 360-degree rotating seating in the cockpit. The new boat has the same performance hull, with a 21 degree deadrise at the transom.
The 43 LE comes with two power options: Three 425-hp Yamaha outboards, and a base price of $978,000, or three 450-hp Mercury Racing outboards, and a base price of $1,081,000.
On the foredeck, the 43 LE has a recessed chaise lounge and sun pad to create a separate social space. Aft, the cockpit expands with drop-down gunwales on each side, and it has an updated version of the rotating lounge.
The rotating module now has multiple locking stations, so the lounge can face forward, aft, or sideways, looking out over the drop-down “terraces,” and it has a built-in footrest. A removable high-gloss table fits into the module to hold drinks or dinner. There’s also an electric grill aft.
The helm is protected by a molded, full-beam fiberglass hardtop with a skylight. The two-person helm and companion seats also swivel to face forward, while underway, or aft, to face the amidships galley.
