Manufacturer Provided Description

With over six feet, seven inches of headroom, three opening foredeck hatches, and six hull side portlights (with screens), the Tiara 3800 Open interior is large and well-lit. The starboard U-shaped lounge converts to an over-sized dinette with a hi-lo pedestal table or to a double berth. The lounge backrest flips up to make a pullman-style single berth.

The AM / FM stereo is standard. The fully-equipped galley features a double bowl stainless sink, microwave oven, two-burner electric cooktop, AC / DC refrigerator/freezer, Corian countertop, lazy susan under the counter shelf unit, and plenty of over / under storage.

The completely private owner's stateroom features a pedestal queen berth with storage below, accessed with the aid of a gas-assist lift. A large hanging locker, hullside convenience shelves, and private access to the head complete this retreat. The head has dual access from both the salon and owner's stateroom and offers a separate stall shower and molded Corian countertop and sink with vanity, mirror, and storage above, and under-storage below.

On deck, standard cockpit seating features an extra-wide back-to-back helm seat with a wet bar and storage and a curved companion lounge with cooler storage and aft-facing seat. An optional fold-down transom lounge and ice maker are also available. The stepped cockpit features 147 square feet of entertaining or fishing space. Under the cockpit sole are large compartments for either cruising or fishing stowage, or both.

Engines access is through an upper cockpit drop-down hatch, or through a lower cockpit electric hatch lift. Borrowing from the 5200 Express, the 3800 Open has a new custom electrical system, and also offers an optional generator, which includes a sound shield. The tilt-away helm features over 3.5 square feet of additional space for electronics. In anticipation of larger horsepower engines, the 3800 has extra engine room space and a structure envelope built-in.


 All owners tools, personal items, Brownie compressor, 50 amp spare cord are excluded but remain aboard until acceptance of vessel is signed.
