Tiara Yachts have always been at the top of their class in quality, style, handling and performance....with practical design features that experienced Yachtsmen will appreciate. The helm visibility is unparalleled for an express, whether standing or sitting; and you will not find a better-handling boat in tight quarters or a rough sea. Below decks, the real teak interior sets Tiara apart from everything else. You will enjoy showing off the hydraulic hatch and displaying the powerful 3208 Cat diesels and excellent access. The 3600 Open is a classic design that still looks good today, and she is truly a pleasure to drive. Class never goes out of style, and it is very affordable with this well-found yacht. 

"Laki Honu" (Lucky Turtle) is a fine example of one of Tiara's most popular designs. Her owner is also a pilot, and has maintenance records dating back to 2006!  Her 3208 Cats start clean and run great. She cruises effortlessly at 22 knots, and tops out at 28 knots. 

2016 upgrades include new AGM batteries, battery charger, bottom paint, shaft seals, rudder seals, cutlass bearings, prop tuning and more.  

Recent 2017 upgrades include a fresh buff & wax, engine room detailing, engine paint, and exterior teak trim refinishing. Her vinyl top and isinglass are in great shape. She shows well for her age and very reasonably priced...a great value.  



The warm traditional interior features teak cabinetry, a teak and holly sole, and cream-colored Ultraleather upholstery. Hatches and portlights provide ample light and ventilation, and the layout is open and inviting. 

There is a C-shaped dinette to port, that converts to a double berth. To starboard is a long settee, which has a flip-up back rest to make a single berth. When raised, the upper level might be suitable for a child, but otherwise can be used for storing clothes and gear. 

The MASTER STATEROOM is forward with an offset double berth. It has a comfortable mattress, and there is a pass-through window that makes the boat feel more spacious and open. The window and bi-fold door provide privacy when desired. There is a hanging locker to port, and several drawers to starboard. There are reading lights on the forward bulkhead, and indirect florescents light the valances along the perimeter. An overhead hatch and two opening ports provide natural light and ventilation. A wash basin is concealed under the port countertop. 

The HEAD is aft to starboard, and features a "Vacuflush" toilet, combination shower system, sink, opening port, and good storage.  

The interior also has a central vacuum system...a feature rarely seen on a vessel of this type!
