Improve-it = Tiara 4300 Open

Tiara Yachts announces the installation of ZF Zeus pods in it's 4300 Open model. This addition to the 4300 Open defines this sportfish cruiser express in the marketplace today, and will be the first Tiara, powered by Cummins MerCruiser Diesel with ZF Zeus propulsion combination.  The first 4300 Open fitted with this propulsion system is now under construction and will make its debut later this month at the Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show. The 4300 Open is equipped with twin ZF Zeus 3000 series pods coupled to Cummins 600hp engines. It uses the intuitive joystick for docking and other slow speed maneuvers, fundamentally changing the ability to control the large power vessel with protection and confidence in the most challenging conditions. The system also offers more speed and economy to the 4300 Open.  Tiara Yachts is no stranger to pod technology, being one of the first to have used Volvo IPS, and also to fix a triple pods installation on its 5800 Sovran flagship.
