Safari is a rare example of a diesel powered Tiara 3100 featuring a hard chine V-hull designed to enhance ride and performance. She cruises comfortably in the 20-22knot range. The boat has benefited from continual quality upgrades recently including high end new Rolls batteries, commercial grade antennae and a refurbished galley with a Wallace heater /cooker. A huge cockpit and a cozy cabin is ideal for a couple with a convertible dinette for occasional guests.



  • Powered by 2 x 250 hp Detroit 8.2 litre V8 turbo diesel engines
  • Only approx 1250 hours.
  • Walker Airsep crankcase ventilation system, ("The Airsep® Air/Oil Separator eliminates crankcase emissions by actually closing the crankcase on your diesel engine. The Airsep® is the only current system with a patented design that uses induction air to coalesce the hot oil vapor into liquid.The Airsep® reduces crankcase pressure, causing the engine to operate in a vacuum. The direct benefits include reduction or elimination of most seal leaks, less lube oil being forced by the rings into the cylinders, and reduction of oil being vented through the crankcase breathers.When the Airsep® removes the lube oil from the blowby gases, the remaining water vapor and raw diesel fuel is re-inducted into the air intake system. On turbocharged and aftercooler engines, this helps prevent the build-up of grit on the turbocharger blades, or the accumulation of oil residue in the aftercooler. Finally, the inducted water vapor reduces the temperature of combustion, which results in increased engine efficiency.)
