The Tiara 3500 Open is a very high quality, US-built sport cruiser (, Holland, MI). The hull is a deep-V designed for quick planing with a stable, dry ride. The hull is built for strength and lightness with a full stringer system and balsa coring in the deck and hull sides. The cockpit and deck are a one piece molding bonded to the hull with a polyurethane membrane and fasteners every six to eight inches. All moldings are hand layups. Even the interior surfaces, including the engine compartment, bilges and storage compartments are gel coated for finished, stain resistant surfaces. All wiring harnesses meet ABYC standards. All deck hardware is recessed and through bolted with heavy backing plates.

The layout features a 67 square foot lower cockpit aft for fishing and water sports and a step to the 60 square foot upper cockpit with the helm to starboard and guest seating to port. The spacious engine compartment is accessed by raising a hatch which is most of the upper cockpit deck on electric powered jacks, including seating, This provides an almost full width opening exposing boat engines and all systems for easy service access. An additional hatch to the engine compartment is located centrally in the forward part of the upper cockpit deck.

A sliding door leads forward down stairs to the galley, salon and master cabin. The engine compartment is reached through a full width hatch on powered jacks that lift most of the upper cockpit deck, completely exposing the twin diesel engines and their systems.
The large fore deck area is molded with a diamond non-skid pattern and is enclosed with a high railing and provides an anchor pulpit which stores the anchor largely out of sight. An electric windlass raises the anchor and chain is stowed in a locker accessible through a deck hatch in the bow.

The Tiara is a luxury sport cruiser intended to compete with the very best boats in the market. This particular example is in showroom new condition with only 422 hours on the engines and the galley stove and anchor windlass have never been used. It is kept in covered moorage in fresh water.

One enters the boat over the very wide swim step through a transom gate to the lower cockpit area. A large seating area at the transom is also a storage locker and can be tilted up as a unit to open the under deck storage area and access to steering and other systems. Additional seating facing aft is provided at the forward end of the cockpit backed by a wet bar and icemaker. The lower cockpit is fitted with fresh water shower and salt water wash down.
Forward up a step leads to the upper cockpit with a solid, streamlined radar arch and complete canvas enclosure. The helm is to starboard with all controls and instruments fitted into a aircraft style control console in front of a double helm seat. The entire control console tilts aft for easy service access. A high, wrap around windshield protects the upper cockpit even with the canvas removed. All exterior seating has a base of durable, non-rotting, waterproof polyethylene seat framing. Cushions feature quick-drying, drain fast foam.

Steps molded into the aft cockpit with hand holds molded into the radar arch and high railings from the steps forward to the bow pulpit with molded in diamond non-skid pattern on the entire side and fore deck, make access to the fore deck easy. The deck over the forward cabin is relatively low making for an almost flat fore deck area providing ample space for lounging.

A sliding door, with a second sliding screened panel, leads forward from the upper cockpit down stairs to the galley and salon. A complete head and shower is located at the base of the stair to port. The galley and salon floor is really exceptional beveled teak and holly planking. The interior design features outstanding wood work and quality materials. The galley is to port with Corian counters and built-in appliances including a Samsung microwave, Nova Kool double door refer/freezer, a two burner electric stove and a covered sink. To starboard is a “U” shaped seating area around the table which can be lowered to convert to a double berth. The electrical control panels are located on the aft bulkhead under glass doors. The cabin walls and table are finished in teak.

Through a door forward is the master cabin with an island queen size bed and hanging lockers on each side. Additional storage areas is under the mattress.

Broker's Comments

The Tiara 3500 Open is a fast, luxury express yacht built in the US and suitable for cruising, entertaining or fishing. This particular example is truly in show room condition with only 421 hours on the two Caterpillar 3126 engines (700 HP total) yet it is priced far below market value for a quick sale. It can cruise at over 25 knots and still provide luxury accommodations. Outstanding design and construction with features not seen on lesser boats make this a great boat and one that you'll be proud to own.
