New Model: Tiara 4300 Open

Renowned quality US boat builder Tiara presents the new flagship for its Open Series, the 4300 Open. This new model launched during the February Miami show reflects Tiara traditional style, craftsmanship, and rugged elegance and follows on the footsteps of the 2008 launched 3900 Open. As the flagship of the Open range the 4300 is combined with outstanding features and equipment that make her capable of handling deep water fishing and, or sea cruising, breaking a perfect balance between the two environments which is hard to find. A 98 square-foot upper cockpit features Tiara hinged helm console with full flush mount electronics capability, Stidd Captain’s Seat, curved companion lounge with swivel seat, engine access hatch, wet bar, and abundant storage. The lower cockpit which is the fisherman's ring offers 95 square-foot of space. This area is built to accommodate a fighting chair if desired, and features an aft-facing mezzanine seating, low free board, flush floor storage boxes/hatches, and molded in transom door and gate. Accommodation for the 4300 is for six berths in a four plus two environment in a private European style which goes away from the usual US open plan system. The layout is a owners room to fore, two bunk berths cabin to port, shower head to starboard, convertible C-shaped settee, and an L-shaped galley. The 4300 Open is powered by twin Cummins QSM11 715hp Diesels, which give a top speed of 35 knots, and a cruise of 32 knots.
