Powerboat Guide Comments
Introduced in 1992, the Tiara 3100 Open is a complete update of the original 3100 Open built from 1979–91. Her reworked hull features a sharper entry, additional transom deadrise (18 degrees vs. the 14-degrees of the original 3100), greater bow flare for a drier ride, and prop pockets to reduce shaft angles. Significantly, the 3100 Open also has a bi-level cockpit layout that allowed an enlarged engine compartment. Tiara has always been a conservative builder and it’s no surprise that the new 3100 looks a lot like the original—basically a no-glitz express with top-quality systems, and hardware. The slightly enlarged interior of the new 3100 has a bit more headroom than her predecessor, and there’s also a bigger U-shaped dinette. Additional updates included increased fuel, a tilt-away helm console, recessed trim tabs, and an in-deck fish box and livewell in the cockpit. Note that a transom door became standard in 1994. Early models with 350hp gas engines cruise at 20–21 knots (about 30 knots top)
