Manufacturer Provided Description

The Tiara 3500 Open features a stepped cockpit with an over 60-square-foot upper and 67-square-foot lower cockpit. Available in either gas or diesel power, the 3500 has engine access thru upper cockpit drop-down hatch, or lower cockpit electric engine hatch lift. Seating includes double-wide back-to-back helm seat, with top-loading cooler - storage box, and port back-to-back companion seats, with storage - wet bar - entertaining center. The 3500 features Tiara's tilt-away helm and chart flat console with deep-blue non-glare. There are three full-size opening foredeck hatches, and six opening hullside portlights with screens. The integrated swim platform has a folding swim ladder. TIARA YACHTS FEATURES: Over forty years of boat building results in yachts of uncommon style and performance. Tiara's deep-V hull gives a quick planing, fuel efficient, stable, dry ride, and the advanced keel design maximizes tracking and maneuverability. Stringer systems are constructed of strong, lightweight materials, and hullsides and decks are balsa-cored, resulting in excellent structural strength-to-weight ratio. Hull - deck joints are sealed with a combination of polyurethane membrane and fasteners every six to eight-inches, eliminating any leaks. Cockpit and deck are of one-piece construction, greatly increasing overall strength, and further ensuring a watertight fit. Master hull and deck molds are hand-sanded, creating a perfect mold. Hulls and decks are laid-up by hand, resulting in a smooth, distortion-free and long lasting finish. Engine rooms, hatches and overheads are gelcoated, as are all bilge and storage compartments - resulting in finished and stain-resistant surfaces throughout. Large scuppers and gutters, and channeled cockpit hatches ensure quick drainage of water and debris. Scupper and gutter baffles prevent water entry when backing down. Cockpit seating has a base of durable, non-rotting, waterproof polyethylene seat framing. Cushions feature quick-drying, drain-fast foam. All Tiara Open and Express helm consoles are one-piece molded fiberglass units that tilt aft for clear access-for easy service. Instrumentation is laid out in function - usage clusters for improved operator visibility, and each panel layout allows ample room for a variety of custom electronics. Custom Tiara diamond nonskid provides sure, safe footing on all deck surfaces. The strongest in the industry, Tiara windshields are more than aesthetically pleasing - they are built for maximum visibility and protection. All deck fittings and hardware are recessed for safety, and through-bolted with backup plates. Integrated molded-in bow pulpits include anchor roller assemblies, and anchor lockers are self-draining. Below deck, interiors are executed with fine fabrics, plush carpets, supple leathers and exquisite woodwork. All primary harnesses are built in-house, and tie wrapped, with cushioned clamps, anti-chafe collars, and meet ABYC standards. Model to model, Tiara engine selections are designed to give optimum performance and efficiency. As are underwater gear propellers, custom designed for each particular model.
