New Model: Tiara 3100 Coronet

Tiara continues its long standing entry level Coronet range by presenting the new 3100.  This new Tiara Coronet replaces the 2900 model and features the good looks, and quality as associated from this US boat builder. The signature wrap around wind shield a feature of many other Tiara models, optional hard top, radar arch, and various hull color choices are what distincts this model as a luxury sport cruiser.  Measuring overall in European standards over 36 feet, with quite a wide beam of over twelve feet the 3100 Coronet is bigger to what its model designation says.  This size translates into a large single level cockpit, which features a total of six settees including the helm, of which three are of L-shape form.  Behind the helm located to starboard is also an entertainment center with grill, washbasin, drawers, and jack for a TV. Inside is a large single cabin with separate shower head, and L-shaped drawer with wash basin.  Power is from twin Crusaders petrol gas engines of 375hp with line shaft propulsion which deliver a top speed of 34 knots.  So far no other engine options are being advised, but a diesel choice with its better economy will make the 3100 Coronet surely more popular.
