Tiara is one of the countrys premier builders of dual-purpose express boats, combining hardcore fishing capabilities with beautifully crafted interiors. Like all of Tiaras Open models, the 3800 was offered as a tournament-ready fishing machine or equipped with the cruising amenities of a comfortable family express. A huge U-shaped settee to starboard, opposite the galley, dominates the elegant single-stateroom interior. Theres a separate stall shower in the head, and the beautiful teak-and-holly cabin sole gives the interior of the 3800 a traditional feel found in few other boats. (Note that an alternate floorplan introduced in 2003 has a smaller head but adds a portside settee.) The cockpit, with about 70 square feet of space, could be ordered with an 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 hideaway TV in the salon, a cockpit wet bar, a fold-down transom seat, transom door and shower, side exhausts and wide side decks. Prop pockets reduce the shaft angles and draft. Cummins 480hp diesels cruise the Tiara 3800 at 2526 knots (about 30 knots top).
