Tiara Yachts 3900 Sovran Manufacturer's Overview

With roots dating back to 1955, Tiara Yachts is one of the oldest and most respected privately-held Motor yacht manufacturers in the U.S. Since that time, the company has maintained an unwavering commitment to innovation, advanced technology, and the highest standards of quality. Each Tiara is built with the customer’s needs and desires, from comfort and storage space to performance and reliability, in mind. The Tiara Yachts range includes the inboard-powered Open Series, Flybridge, and Coupe model lines from 39 to 53 feet, and the outboard-powered Tiara Sport series from 34 to 38 feet.

The Tiara 3900 Sovran is a sleek, spacious and seaworthy luxury cruising yacht. Her exterior gathering spaces include a large foredeck sun pad with backrests and a huge cockpit seating area. One step up, on the sheltered bridge deck, is a wet bar with a fridge, making it convenient to grab snacks and drinks. There is also a dining area positioned to take full advantage of the view through the windshield and side windows. The helm is large and well-laid out – everything is right at the driver’s fingertips. Volvo IPS controls, including a joystick, make docking the 3900 Sovran a dream. Below, the compact Volvo propulsion system also affords room for a wealth of amenities. The headroom is high and traffic flows easily through the airy salon and galley. The woodwork is exceptional for a yacht of this size range. There are two staterooms large enough to be designated the master. Forward, double doors lead to a private cabin with an island queen berth. Aft is the “Theater”, a mid-cabin lounge with facing settees and a large TV with a surround-sound entertainment system. By night, the settees convert to berths. The spacious head with a separate shower also is located amidships. Throughout the 3900 Sovran, fit and finish is first-rate Tiara style.
