Brokerage: Tiara Yachts Q44

“We ran the boat on a blustery day in 3-foot seas on Lake Michigan. The builder says it connects Volvo Penta’s 435 hp engines via jack shaft to IPS pod drives to lessen vibration and give the Q44 excellent maneuverability. It works. Our test boat hit a top speed of 33 knots at 3,600 rpm. Joystick steering makes it a fun ride, even in tight turns.” — Yachting, January 2016
