If you appreciate life onboard a yacht with the reliability, seaworthiness and timeless design to make the journey a satisfying destination in itself then Tiara yachts, especially premier Tiara yachts are for you. Tiara yachts yachts began its history with Leon Slikkers, formerly of Chris-Craft. In 1954 he registered the Slickcraft name, and the following year he left a promising career at the age of 27 to open his own shop and fulfill his dream. He sold his house and started a small factory on Washington Avenue in Holland, Michigan. Leon began experimenting with a new material called fiberglass in 1955. Thus, 1955 year is considered as a start of Leon own yacht building company. Within three years, the company put a few of the boats into production and, by 1963, had stopped building with wood completely.
In 1969, Leon sold Slickcraft to the AMF Corporation. Later in 1974 he started building sailboats under the name S2 Yachts. Within ten years, S2 was one of the top five sailboat manufacturers in the United States, known for building both quality cruising vessels as well as racing boats. Gradually the company began producing high-quality power boats called Tiara Yachts, and phasing out the sailboats. In 1983, S2 Yachts purchased the Slickcraft brand name from AMF, and the following year, Leon Slikkers became Chief Executive Officer and David Slikkers was named President.
Nowadays Tiara is a division of S2 Yachts, Inc., with head offices/manufacturing in Holland, Michigan, and another manufacturing facility for specific models in Swansboro, North Carolina. Tiara features two lines of yachts: open, measuring from 31 feet to 53 feet in length with standard pulpit, and express Sovran, ranging from 41 feet to 55 feet with standard pulpit.
