Step aboard this well-built vessel and you will see why Tiara is a well-respected name in the marine industry. The cockpit is wide and roomy with a transom door for easy access to the water for swimming, diving or to pull in that big fish. There is a cockpit shower to get the sand off your feet before entering the salon. On the transom there is a dive ladder to the water.

Climb to the flybridge and there you will see a well laid out console with all the electronics needed for safe cruising. The bridge offers captain seating as well seating for passengers. A NEW full enclosure keeps everyone and everything nice and dry.

Back down to the cockpit thru the door into the salon which is finished with beautiful Teak wood cabinetry. There is a TV, overhead lighting, stereo and plush carpeting. Moving forward to the starboard, there you will see a beautiful custom inlaid table with ample seating. To the port side is the galley which again is finished in high quality Teak cabinetry with a double sink, microwave and refrigerator.

As you move forward, you will see the head area to the port side with an enclosed shower, further forward to the bow you will enter the master stateroom with a full size bed and ample storage cabinets. There is also a TV in the stateroom and all this is cooled by the two on board air conditioners.

On those hot, hot days, this vessel is equipped with sun shades on the exterior to keep the heat out and allows the A/C to keep the cabins comfortable.

This vessel has had multiple thousands of dollars spent on upgrades throughout her life. This vessel was originally owned by this owner’s brother and both spared no expense on her throughout their years of ownership. I also have had the honor to be good friends of the present owner and can assure you that everything on this vessel is on the up and up. This owner is very proud of this vessel and, regrettably, it has become too much for him to care for due to health issues. This is unfortunate for him, but fortunate for her new owners. This is a turnkey, extremely well-cared for vessel (except for a generator issue that needs repairing). The owner is leaving additional equipment with the sale of this vessel such as large fenders, shore power chords, deck chairs, braided dock lines and a Magna Barbeque. In my opinion you will not find a better vessel that has been updated and equipped offered at this sale price.
