"Donny D III" is a 2011 48 Tiara Convertible yacht and a step above the rest, this 48 Tiara spared no expense in its build and aftermarket rigging by a knowledgeable team.  Professionally captain maintained and serviced to the highest of standards, "Donny D III" will not disappoint. The 48 Tiara sets the benchmark in its class. Superior head-sea ride designed to tackle the much less than favorable sea conditions of the Great Lakes, the 48 Tiara is not afraid of sea conditions thrown at her globally. Extremely fuel efficient with a pair of proven C-18 CAT’s, the 48 will provide you with the range needed for a boat this size. Her spacious layout is generous and comfortable, the cockpit very well designed for competitive tournament fishing or comfortable cruising with the family. The molded-in fiberglass staircase finished off with teak steps is a winner for all. Visibility from the helm is spot on making the 48 Tiara a pleasure to captain. This two boat owner is motivated as indicated by the asking price for a vessel as well equipped and cared for as this one. Don’t miss a terrific opportunity to own a best in class Convertible at 48 feet with 3 spacious staterooms and 2 well-appointed heads.

Fresh out of the yard with a complete bottom job, top and hull side wax, and detail!

Vessel Walkthrough

As you enter the salon from the cockpit, you find a spacious salon layout with an ultra leather L-shaped sofa to port, and a 37” pop up TV to starboard. Below the sofa, you will find a pullout sleeper spacious enough for 2, and below the pop-up TV, you will find the Bose audio system and the main breaker panel to the boat. As you continue forward, you will find a large ultra leather dinette to starboard and a u-shaped galley to port fitted with sub-zero refrigeration, microwave oven, stovetop, and a dishwasher.

Heading down the teak steps into the companionway, immediately to starboard you find a generous set of bunks. On port side, you will find the very cavernous master stateroom with teak accents and an en-suite head. Moving forward, you have a hanging closet to starboard. To round out this superior design we have access to the head on starboard and access to the forward bunks.
