The Tiara 3800 has been an ultra-popular model whether for fishing or cruising. Solid construction, inside and out, with an aggressive bottom providing excellent sea-keeping abilities, mated with interiors that show a high degree of engineering and craftsmanship, using only the best materials make Tiara a stand-alone in its class.

Still Waters II has been lovingly maintained by her two-time Tiara owners. They reluctantly are sacrificing it because it won't fit behind their new house, so their loss is your gain.

Additional Information

Tiara’s custom diamond pattern non-skid is used on all deck and cockpit surfaces for sure, safe footing. The custom Tiara windshield is made of composite fiberglass that blends beautifully with the lines of the boat. This new method of windshield construction is revolutionary in the marine industry and is engineered to eliminate the corner pilasters. A center ventilating section with power actuator is great for airflow while idling and a helm air option is available for added comfort. The transition to the foredeck is easy with grab rails and a sturdy one-piece welded bow rail. Other features include three aluminum deck hatches with screens and privacy covers, flush forward anchor locker with overboard drain, and a fiberglass molded-in bow pulpit with standard S.S. roller assembly. The hull is constructed with a water barrier outer gelcoat layer and handlaid fiberglass with a special formulated resin. Wood and foam core stringers are vacuum sealed and encapsulated with handlaid fiberglass and integrated into the hull. The seacocks and all underwater thru-hull fittings are made of bronze, and a hullside exhaust system is used. The 3800 has six oval custom opening port lights with screens for great ventilation and natural light while below deck.
