The Tiara 3100 Coronet is a 36-foot day cruiser yacht produced by the award-winning Michigan-based yacht-building firm Tiara Yachts between 2012 and 2019. A timeless, sharp profile with graceful curves, a fine bow entry, sloping windscreen glazing, porthole windows and a traditionally shaped aft cockpit hide what is in fact a very modern vessel. Hi-tech electronics, powerful inboard engines, contemporary styled living spaces and a surprising amount of lower-deck accommodation make this the ideal boat for stylish weekend cruising. No longer in current production, this remains an enduringly popular option on the used and charter markets.
To aft there is a 40-inch integrated swim platform in fiberglass or teak that sits on the same level as the aft-cockpit, which can be accessed via a central transom gate. Once in here you will find either a set of L-shaped transom sofas in neutral toned Ultraleather or a comprehensive set of fishing amenities such as fish boxes, live-wells, a fighting chair, rod holders, hosepipes and so on. Moving further forward you will discover a pair of mezzanine loveseats and a smartly hidden wet-bar console to starboard with refrigeration, a sink and a mini-barbecue grill on which you can cook up your catch.
Buyers can equip this yacht with an optional hard-top canopy with a retractable sunroof over the helm for all-weather piloting, though boats come with an open aspect as standard for an opportunity to work on your tan as you steer this vessel. Up in the cockpit you will find an L-shaped sofa in Ultraleather with a pop-up cocktail table as well as a twin helm seat with superb visibility. Bow thruster controls, a steel and timber steering wheel, trim tab controls, a Garmin multi-function display screen, VHF radio and plenty of analogue instrumentation make piloting this boat a real joy from the starboard side helm station.
A transparent companionway door leads into a spacious lower deck that sits up against the bow. Plenty of portholes, a teak and holly sole, plush carpeting and Corian countertops await down here, where an open galley has been fitted into the same studio-like space as the main cabin. You will find a sink, a below-counter fridge and a microwave oven in here, while a queen-sized bed, hanging lockers, hidden storage and a skylight complete the space. A single main head on this level features an open shower fixture ideal for freshening up in the morning.
Powered by a pair of 375MHP Crusader 6.0L MPI gasoline inboards or twin 330MHP Cummins QSB 5.9 diesel engines, this yacht can reach top speeds of approximately 34 knots. At cruising speeds of 21 knots, meanwhile, you can expect fuel efficiency of around one mile per US gallon and a range of 181 nautical miles. A modified V “Paraplane” hull with a 14-degree transom deadrise, a flattened aft and downturned chines offers immense stability, plenty of natural lift and a relatively dry ride.
