Over forty years later…
Tiara Yachts has been building mid-sized luxury yachts for over four decades. The company’s founder, Leon Slikkers, got his start in boat building working at Chris Craft, before moving on to start his own yard. In 1974, he founded S2 (parent company of Tiara) and began designing and building sailboats.
Shortly after S2 Yachts was founded, Slikkers’ two older sons joined the company, offering both new perspectives and a commitment to excellence. Just two years after the company was born, S2 made the bold switch to building motor yachts. It was at this time that Tiara Yachts was born.
Tiara is regarded as one of the top boat builders in the US, and offers service all across North America. The Michigan based company remains privately owned and family operated.
