The Tiara 3000 Open is a 33-foot express cruiser yacht produce by award-winning Michigan-based yacht firm Tiara Yachts between the years of 2006 and 2012. Combining the best qualities of a compact, offshore cruiser and an entry-level sportfisher, the 3000 Open offers style, comfort and practicality in a finely balanced package. A sporty hull form and powerful engines make this a great option for chasing prize catches, while an open main-deck with a hard-top and wrap-around windscreen glazing will prove popular with those who prefer that intuitive and elemental connection to the seas.
The fish-focused aft-cockpit boasts an optional 48-gallon live-well, under-floor fish boxes, a tackle station and bait-prep area, raw and freshwater hoses, rod holders, space for a fighting chair and a transom lifting gate. Yet this is also a space that can be enjoyed by the whole family, featuring a fold-out transom sofa, a pair of mezzanine-style loveseats in white leatherette and room for a wet-bar console with an outdoor grill. And at the stern there is a de rigueur swimming platform that will be beloved by swimmers of all ages, not to mention anglers attempting to haul their marlin aboard.
Up front you will find a pair of forward-facing twin seats, one of which faces a superbly configured helm station featuring a Raymarine display screen with integrated controls, an Axiom Pro chart-plotter, a Ritchie Compass, a steel-framed Hynautic power-assisted steering wheel, QL trim tab controls, autopilot, VHF radio and optional extras like a fish-finder.
A watertight, glazed companionway door leads down to one of the most spacious lower-deck layouts you are likely to find on a boat of this class. No mere after-thought, the lobby down here is a real place to relax at night. A durable teak and holly sole, glossy teak cabinetry, maple-lined tables, oval portholes, a plethora of skylights and furnishings in off-white leather keep this space feeling bright even on dark days. There is a large U-shaped sofa surrounding a breakfast table down here, facing an open galley with Corian counter-tops, an Isotherm fridge, a Panasonic microwave, a one-zone Kenyon glass hob, a stainless-steel sink and masses of cabinetry. The boat’s main head has been neatly located to port to feature an open shower fixture, while a double bed sits snugly up against the bow and the sofa can be swiftly turned into a second bed.
A pair of 385MHP Crusader 8.1 gasoline inboard engines prompt this yacht to top speeds of over 35 knots with cruising speeds of around 25 knots at half-loads offering a range of approximately 200 nautical miles. A modified V-hull with a flared bow and a 14-degree transom deadrise has been designed to manage swells and maintain balance on the turn, ensuring you can keep pace as you track tuna miles offshore.
