Tiara is one of the country’s premier builders of dual-purpose express boats, combining hardcore fishing capabilities with beautifully crafted interiors. Like all of Tiara’s Open models, the 3800 was offered as a tournament-ready fishing machine or equipped wit the cruising amenities of a comfortable family express. A huge U-shaped settee to starboard, opposite the galley, dominates the elegant single-stateroom interior. There’s a separate stall shower i the head, and the beautiful teak & holly cabin sole gives the interior of the 3800 a traditional feel found in few other boats. The cockpit, with about 70 square feet of space, could be ordered with aft facing jump seat or a complete tackle center. The entire helm deck lifts mechanically for easy access to the large engine room. Additional features include a hideway TV in the salon, a cockpit wet bar, a fold down transom seat, transom door and shower, side exhausts and wide side decks. Prop pocket reduce the shaft angles and draft. Cummins 480HP diesels cruise the Tiara 3800 in the 25 knot range. (PowerBoat Guide)
