What’s On Board: Tiara

A private sailing yacht with a seven-seat helicopter and an aviation communications systems. How about that…?
“After completing sea-trials in Auckland in April and May, the 54m (178ft) Dubois-designed sloop Tiara landed an EC 130 helicopter on the aft-deck. It is believed Tiara is the first privately-owned sailing yacht with a helipad. Tiara, built by Alloy Yachts Auckland New Zealand, was specifically designed to accommodate the owner’s seven-seat helicopter. The aft deck has landing lights sunk into the teak and the yacht has aviation communications systems.”
